Re: “Middlebury College Closing Campus Amid Coronavirus Fears

Wouldn't it make more sense to isolate this population of students on campus, who I think are less at risk of full blown Covid, then to send them back to their communities where they are more likely to be exposed and to become vectors? Doesn't this place them in greater risk of infecting their elders?

Cancel spring break instead?

Re: “Why Have Two Historic Vergennes Buildings Sat Empty for Decades?

When constructing with toxic materials and accumulating toxins in the process of running a business, inevitably future costs will be incurred. Too often builders and manufacturers can walk away from the responsibility of cleaning up their messes, messes passed along to the most conscientious party.

While these buildings in Vergennes may be historic, they are also relics and likely tear downs. Products of an industrial age where rivers where treated like sewers.

Municipalities should require or secure Insurance and bonding, when regulating business, especially those likely to skip town and leave behind unusable buildings. "Dollar Generals" would be included in my opinion.

And have faith living someplace more ecologically "pristine" does have its attraction in a rapidly overcrowded world.

Re: “Vice President Mike Pence to Return to Vermont

In honor of our Vice President's visit please abstain from marrying your same sex partner this weekend. Lock your children in their rooms for a few extra hours. Light a candle in remembrance of the death penalty. And please please assign your desperately hard working Latino guest workers to a work locale close to a main road.

Re: “Historic Dustup: Standoff Shutters Orwell's Museum

Perhaps some air sealing, and the set up of wood working dust collectors and gentle compressed air could begin to inexpensively restore the museum pieces.

Re: “Dissension in the Ranks: Legislative Failures Spark Reaction on the Left

The Vermont Democratic party should be a party of varying progressive points of view, and should unify around the congregation of left leaning and centrist view points. Leadership should be putting up an all inclusive invitation. Strength in numbers, and strength in forming a platform and majority.
