Re: “New England Culinary Institute Ends Dinner Service

A long sad history of decline under prior management that the "new talent" has been unable to reverse ! It was once a great place to have that special night out!

Re: “Two Bills in the Vermont House Would Boost Legislators' Pay

Talk About Mangling "An Old Adage" - OMG !

It appears that Representative McCullough wasn't paying attention in grade school if he thinks he was told:

“To speak to the old adage, anything worth doing is worth paying for !"

What I was told was "Anything worth doing is worth doing right !"

To answer Rep. McCullough's hidden question, If you were doing the job "right" the taxpayers wouldn't be so offended by you asking for a raise !

Here's an idea, why don't we calculate your pay raise based upon savings you find and the taxes you cut - FIRST !

Re: “Some Republicans Denounce VTGOP Chair’s Fiery, Pro-Trump Screed

I fail to understand why the Vermont Trump Supporters and the Vermont Never-Trumpsters can't just shup-up about their differences about the Republican President and just concentrate on mending fences to promote the Republican brand and ideals without having a cat fight about the president. Republicans have enough thing to worry about on the home front - like finding enough worthy, electable candidates to fill the election ballot in November of 2020. Get your act together or the Republican brand will only be the equal of the Green Mountain, Marijuana and Liberty-Union Parties !

Re: “Volunteers Fear Respite House Is Trading Hominess for Solvency

At UVM Medical, sadly it's all about the balance sheet and the bottom-line !

Re: “Statehouse Standoff Stalls Act 46 School Merger Deadline Extension

Act 46 has been poison from the get go, stealing "local control" from the townspeople and handing it to unelected officials in the AOE who have become frunk with power that was never intended or authorized in the original legislation (or in Act 49, the supplemental legislation ).

Re: “Are the Rich Really Running From Vermont's 'Death Tax'?

Personally I know four "Vermont" millionaires, each has moved to primary residences in tax friendly states (AZ, CO, FL, TX) while "vacationing" here in Vermont, documenting their stay so they can prove they are here less than 183 days each year ! Each of these state have no inheritance or estate taxes AND low income tax rates or no income tax at all - surprised ?
