Re: “Are Tiny Houses a Solution to Vermont's Housing Issues?

I like the concept of tiny houses, but the square footage of an average tiny home is too small for my 5 person family.

I like a lot of the innovative ideas that people come up with for the sake of saving space. I think a lot of them can be used in larger homes.

I've heard a lot about Vermod, but people can, with help, build their own. They shouldn't have to be limited to one vendor.

Re: “Obituary: Laurie Tedford, 1961-2020

I never had the honor of meeting this woman, but from reading this piece written in her memory, it would have been an honor indeed.

Re: “Burlington Considers Allowing Noncitizens to Vote — Again

My wife works with a naturalized citizen who has lived legally in the United States for 30 years. Most of the time that it took to become a citizen was in saving the money for the financial costs of doing so. It's expensive to become a citizen.

There are all of these arguments about people becoming citizens and not having rights until they do. Not everyone can come up with the money.

It seems like we complain about noncitizens and immigrants who have come here legally, as well as illegally, but we put barriers in their way to make it right.

Re: “Vermont Senate Seeks to Revive Vetoed Gun Waiting Period Bill

"archaic thinking that we might need to be sufficiently armed to stop a potentially intrusive government"

We do not have fighter jets, tanks, heavy weaponry, etc.

We have, through the representatives that we have elected, built up our military to a level that it is, for all practical purposes, impossible to be sufficiently armed against the government.

I understand the historical foundation of this argument, but, without members of the military defecting and bringing their weapons with them, which I am not advocating for, even a large body of armed American citizens doesn't have the weaponry to stop a "potentially intrusive government".

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

The optics are very bad on this.
