Re: “The College Named After Samuel de Champlain Debates Whether to Keep His Statue

Better to remove the statues of Ira and Ethan, known Indian killers. from the state house. But Samuel's relationship with Abenaki is not well explained here. Relationships of first europeans are very specific and individual. Portuguese fishing villages had been established along the coast of turtle island's right foot before Champlain. I think the story of him "saving" the paddlers in his canoe is specious. Worse, it instantly increased the violence and bloodshed in the region and actually started a bigger rift between neighbors and paved the way for colonialism. The early relationship with French intelligence gatherers (him and the Jesuits and Sulpecians) is also complicated, the invaders met with Anishenabek clans who were at that time pacifists and welcoming to refugees. Champlain violated that philosophy by using his gun to kill, which altered the relationship between pacifist Anishenanek and Mohawk forever.

Re: “The Mulvaney-Stanaks: A Family Divided Over a Vermont Election

too little too late....I'm not disillusioned, not having been illusion about politics for some time. Vermont ridge lines are our Standing Rock as are Lake Champlain, the National Forest and the Conn. River watershed where dam license renewals threaten to increase capacity.

As in Dan Kerrigan's comments, "when hope is lost persevere..."

Re: “The Mulvaney-Stanaks: A Family Divided Over a Vermont Election

Rock Ridge in Missisquoi (now-called Swanton) is my Standing Rock. Mountain top removal for industrial wind generators will destroy sacred sites. why is mountain top removal bad for coal mining but ok for wind generation? The only candidate promising a moratorium on ridge line destruction is Scott.
