Re: “Why a State Obsessed With 'Local' Doesn't Eat Vermont Fish

The State is so screwed up it stinks. Human activity pollutes the lake far more than agricultural run off. The only reason they are hitting farmers is because they don't have the money to fight them. My family has eaten fish from the lake for over 50 years. They would do better at cleaning it up if Burlington would stop dumping raw sewage in it.

Re: “Whirligig Brewing Plans a Spring Opening in St. Johnsbury

What I do not understand as the nation finally realizes that wheat barley and rye are not food for people and that they are single worst "foods" and by extension not even useful to make alcohol. Vermont seems to be home to new breweries opening every six months. This is the state that claims to have great health care and they need it as there seems to be no end to taking advantage of the people who haven't yet figured out their health sucks because of shitty food by all means lets keep taking advantage of peoples lack of knowledge of the crappiest most addictive "food" like wheat barley and rye. No offence to these people but find something else to sell other than beer.

I hope they offer something other than sours and murky gross "juice bomb" IPAs.

Re: “Taco Gordo Opens in Burlington's Old North End

This is gentrification. Where a bottle redemption center that served the low income members of the community once stood, is another restaurant geared towards college educated residents, in another building owned by Redstone, as the Old North End becomes just as expensive as the rest of the city.

Re: “Taco Gordo Opens in Burlington's Old North End

There are also lots of Fat Taco restaurants around the country. It's always good to do a quick internet search before naming your establishment so people can find it easily.

Re: “Taco Gordo Opens in Burlington's Old North End

My internet search didn't come up with any reference to Mexican slang, but it did find plenty of Taco Gordo restaurants around the country. P.S. spelling is still important.

Re: “Longtime Organic Ag Leader Enid Wonnacott Steps Down

I wish you well and thank you for your years of hard work in Vermont. We need more strong, intelligent women in companies and organizations such as NOFA-VT. My granddaughter is a UVM-ag.graduate and an organic meat, pork and poultry farmer, as well as veggies. She is the Pres. the agricultural association for Addison Co. And was Pres. Of VT FFA when in hs. Maybe shell one day cross paths with Mrs.Wonnacott, if not already. Good job!

Re: “Taco Gordo Opens in Burlington's Old North End

Taco Gorda

To any Mecixan, this is a terrible slang phrase...

You gringos in VT wouldn't know that.

I live in a multi ethinic neighbor about 50% of my friends and neighbors are Mexican and that phrase is only used in private company

Re: “Hen of the Wood Restaurateurs Buy Prohibition Pig

Great news. Hen of the Wood is my favorite Vermont restaurant. I hope the new owner can do something about the echo and excessive noise level at Prohibition Pig.

I believe the photo that accompanies this article is from Bluebird Barbecue, not Prohibition Pig.

Re: “With a New Policy, Healthy Living Reads the Fine Print for You

Don't worry; still plenty of GMOs to be had at healthy living. And regarding their nickname, ever heard of Shitty Markup? Yes, not as catchy.

Re: “One Year After Building Second Store, City Market Exceeds Goals

Perhaps cwinklem is correct and some employees are dramatically underpaid . My suggestion is get rid of a good quarter of the staff and pay the remainder much more. Every time I visit I see so many useless , lazy disinterested workers . There are also many helpful hard workers . Is part of the diversity goal to hire so many useless people ? Perhaps Tashiro should focus on competency when hiring instead of social engineering .
