Re: “Church Street Marketplace Director Ron Redmond to Resign

Ron was/is an amazing cat herder and cheerleader for Church St. The question now is do the businesses, and in particular the Board of the Church st. Marketplace who are responsible for 100% of the REVENUE ( and associated taxes) have a hand in the decision making of who Ron's replacement will be?

Re: “Senate Committee's Proposal to Fund Clean Water Evaporates

Taxes are just like maple syrup in the trees.

Tap the big, fat one that everyone loves (Tourism) the sap gushes, everyone gets what they want, no one gets hurt. Tap the tiny sapling, that's clearly on life-support ( High tech in Vermont) and you get a trickle of sweet...until you kill the tree.

The naive ones under the dome that keep shouting but 19 other states do it!" do not have the vision or simply depth of understanding to get that they are comparing a mature thriving infrastructure in those 19 states - California - come on with a few companies here.

The two largest ( Dealer/Myweb) both have both been bought and sold twice and are on a quiet shrinkage trajectory (just as IDX and IBM did before them). The handful of others that want to live and work and contribute here because they are good enough to sell their wares beyond the farmers market you just put a knife in their little heart as you hung a sign out to America yes we have very high taxes here and we just made them worse for you.

Re: “Dining on a Dime: El Cortijo Taqueria y Cantina — Winooski

Farmhouse properties should never be in the same headline as ' dining on a dime'. Undermines your credibility.

Re: “142-Room Hotel Proposed for Burlington YMCA Building

Is is just me or does all the recent construction last few years - from the new hotels, to Pine St, to off Pine. to St. Paul st, etc all look like it was drawn from the same generic cookie cutter 'building in a box' set? Can't the city try to nudge raise the bar a little architecturally?

Im not asking for 'design police' but....generic begets generic.

Re: “Leahy, Sanders Call for Franken to Resign Over Sexual Misconduct Claims

Respectfully Senator, how about working about the Huge stuff that actually effects every single Vermonter - Tax bill or the National parks etc etc - Yes the Franken thing is an issue but... its easy to chastise a fallen senator - do the heavy lifting you are paid to do and were elected to do.
