Re: “Blue Paddle Bistro

So worth the drive from Burlington
Phoebe is one of the most successfully innovative chefs we visit. The sea bass rested on a bed of black bean and corn salad that was so flavorfully seasoned. Topped with a spoonful of mango salsa to add a refreshing dash to the savory salad and bass. She knows how much is enough and not too much to add to a dish like this. Very complex but not overly so. The bass was grilled to perfection --- tender, juicy, but with such a very crispy skin... That's talent in a kitchen. My table-mates as well had wonderful dishes --- duck breast yummy, and memorably: tortellini with a creamy chorizo-flavored sauce, with the addition of grilled shrimp. Again, just enough and not too much to create a very interesting and flavorful combination. Wines are reasonably priced and a decent selection. I cannot emphasize what I think is great value at Blue Paddle. The food prep is outstanding, fresh ingredients, creative and successful. Great, friendly service, nice easy atmosphere. I live in Burlington and this is worth the drive. Food: 5 Ambiance: 5 Service: 5

Re: “Notorious Transient Accused of Assaulting Burlington Business Owner

Is Mr. Reynolds an example of the type of person where he, the state/city, and public would be better served by hiring someone to be his full-time guardian, and rent an apartment for them to live in? This has worked in many other place around the US. Read Malcolm Gladwell's ground=breaking "Million Dollar Murray" to learn about the origins of this approach.
I know some will yell "Nanny State" back at me, but this solution is being used in plenty of Red stats, and costs less than incarceration, emergency room visits, police responses, and all the other costs our community is incurring with this fellow. The solution "lock him up and throw away the key" just costs more, period. With the flexibility in our Medicaid waiver, this should be explored, perhaps?

Re: “Walters: Welch Pleased After Meeting With Trump

Kudos to Congressman Welch, taking a pragmatic approach to getting progressive legislation. We probably shouldn't hold our breath that this will be successful, but at least he never stops trying. It's a snake pit down in DC (as Penelope notes in her comment), and still, Cong Welch hasn't lost his compass. Thanks, Peter!

Re: “At Public Meeting, Federal Officials Seek to Calm BTV Airport Uproar

Somebody who knows about these things told me a very important thing the community needs is a firm commitment from the Guard to NOT use afterburners during F-35 takeoff unless some emergency or other critical conditions require it. This would be a noise reduction at the source that we should be able to get. The afterburners are not necessary in "normal" conditions. Is anyone out there working on this with the Guard?

(PS: I live in Burlington, off East Avenue near the hospital, and the current fighters taking off register 85+ on my decibal meter when they take off. I simply do not believe the current EIS saying that my house and the hospital are not in an impact zone. The EIS claims that the F-35s will "improve" our situation. All I can say is "Ha! No way. Especially if the afterburners are on.")

Re: “Official: Refugee Resettlement to Resume in Chittenden County

There was also a sizable rally in support of refugees and immigration in Winooski on 2/4. It would be nice to mention that in this article (not just Burlington), as Winooski is also home to many of our New Americans, and speakers at the rally included the mayor, a school board member, and the state representative for Winooski, as well as many of our New American neighbors.

A very professional and transparent response to Sen. Ashe's elevation. Well done, Seven Days.

Re: “The Day After Trump's Victory, a Woman Takes the Citizenship Oath

We all need to join together to assure the promise of the American Dream to all of us, including a valued New Americans. We cannot allow Trump and Trumpism to turn immigration into, essentially, a Bait and Switch.

Re: “Sanders Breaks His Silence on Trump's Election

It's hard to know where to start a reply to the comments so far --- first, if one assumes was the Bernie wanted to change federal policies, rather than just be The Leader, then what he did --- move the Democratic party platform to the Left, was exactly what he meant to do. He could do that only by running as a Democrat. Second, he knows that an independent will never be elected President. It would have been a wasted run, and he would never have been in the televised debates or be able to build the excitement he did, by challenging the Dem. Third, their lake house has nothing to do with the Clinton Foundation! Sheesh, conspiracies beyond conspiracies. Fourth, I would like to encourage people to cut back on "exaggerations." EG: "a candidate nobody wanted," "doing nothing," "she never," "he always." These cut off meaningful discussion and debate, by staking an extreme position (which ofttimes is just incorrect anyway.) For example, by saying Clinton was "a candidate nobody wanted," you are isolating, ignoring, and marginalizing people whom you might want as allies. If we are to rebuild ourselves after this brutal defeat, we need to quit demonizing our brothers and sisters on the Left. We have to start somewhere building the Resistance.
