Re: “Leadercast 2016: Architects of Tomorrow

I've been to Leadercast back when I was living in New York. It is such an amazing experience and I am so excited it's coming to Vermont!

Re: “Vermont Lawmakers Question Untreated Inmates and Unspent Money

I have said before that Centurian health has issues with the prisoners. They are more interested in the money then they are the people. They don't like to treat them and make them wait for weeks to see the doctor who is only in twice a week if that. They should be banned from practicing medicine in the Vermont prison system. Cheaper is not always better

Re: “Walters: Scott Appears to Snub Addison Republican Senate Candidate

I am a voter in Addison County and I will vote for Peter Briggs. With six candidates in the race, he has the best chance to win given the support he received two years ago. Briggs is not a spoiler in any manner and I am looking forward to voting for him.

Re: “Vermont Lawmakers Question Untreated Inmates and Unspent Money

Dick Sears is surprised that there is 2 million missing. I am not. Incompetent contract and program management. Front line workers are held accountable for small mistakes. Central office corrections is exempt from accountability.

Re: “A Simple Favor

Disagree with the lukewarm review. Enjoyed the characters, humor and surprising plot twists. ***1/2

Who is running the Vermont DOC? Dr. Mengele?

Re: “UVM Medical Center, Nurses Reach Tentative Contract Agreement

CEO Eileen Whalen's intent was to break the Nurses' union. She failed this time. The knot heads on the board of the hospital will give her another chance in the near future. Whalen should give back 15% of her salary as a sign of good will . . . oops . . . that would never happen.

Why does this hospital have a history of hiring dunderheads to run things?

Re: “Vermont Inmates Moving to CoreCivic Prison in Mississippi

Hope some of you guys never get to check out a for profit prison for yourselves. But all things come to those who wait, particularly those who cast stones.

Re: “Vermont's Most Diverse City Rejects Noncitizen Voting for Now

Farrell: Twist it anyway you want to - I agree with you that "only residents of a city or town vote in that town.

Thanks for making my point. Nice job.

Re: “Few Vermont Inmates Receive Hepatitis C Treatment

The private prison company (CoreCivic, formerly Corrections Corporation of America) that runs the prison in Mississippi where Vermont inmates will soon be sent, has an even worse history of providing Hep C treatment - they don't want the cost of treatment to eat into the huge profits they make off the prisoners they hold.

Re: “UVM Medical Center, Nurses Reach Tentative Contract Agreement

It's fine to fight for better wages and conditions, but the whole "Patients before Profits" is a bit disingenuous. Much the same way the striking teachers said they needed more money and benefits "for the students".

Re: “Obituary: Brian Costello, 1983-2018

A kind and beautiful soul - I was made better by knowing Brian and am saddened by this news. My prayers go out to his family and all who were touched by him.

Re: “Counselor Julia Rogers Helps Students Navigate Their Gap Year

Thank you 7 Days for the piece on Julia. Very timely for families considering post-high school life.

We went to her event in South Burlington HS a few years ago and found it very interesting about providing another path after high school. We used her services but eventually decided not to do the Gap Year program and concluded it was money well-spent. Considering how expensive college is these days and the debt burden these kids come out with, it's a viable alternative to having to spend another year in college after switching majors. If a Gap Year can help kids explore their interests before going to college, that's great! And not all of her programs are super expensive, some work exchanges provide housing and meals for no cost.

And please stop with the snowflake derogatory comments as these kids don't deserve it. Most of the kids I've been around are bright, talented and diverse. They are our future and they do know how the world works.

Rock on Julia!

Re: “Vermont's Most Diverse City Rejects Noncitizen Voting for Now

@ BDE

"Bob Farrell: Anyone is who going to be held financially responsible for the vote ought to have voice."

By that (non) logic, wealthy people should be able to vote in every state in which they own a house or land. And they should be able to vote in the elections of Carribean islands, Costa Rica, Europe, etc., too. And I should get to vote in China because decisions they make there affect my cost of goods here in Vermont.

No. Only citizens of the US vote in US elections, only actual residents of a state vote in that state, and only residents of a city or town vote in that town.

Period.
