Re: “Housing Advocates Say State Back-Rent Payments Could Halve Eviction Rate

When the state is tough on landlords there are several unintended consequences
1. Legal requirements will drive up rent as landlords experience the savvy renters who know how to get "free" rent for months at a time.
2. After a terrible experience we sold one of our rental units - prior to our experience this was an affordable and well kept home. No rent and in the end the house was trashed - even though we provided trash removal (curb side removal) I made 5 trips to the landfill with a pickup and a trailer - bags and bags of trash. There were no arguments and the tenant was not threatened beyond the fact that she was leaving me with no choice but eviction.

Fewer rental options and higher prices - landlords will build into their rent the cost of eviction and clean up.

Re: “Historic Blunder? State Halts Repairs to UVM's Ira Allen Chapel

UVM's best interest is to preserve historically significant structures and their track record in doing so is superb - they need no further oversight.

Re: “Vermont Farm Show

The Vermont Farm Show is a wonderful reprieve from the drudgeries of winter - the beginning of the transition from winter to spring.

Re: “Walters: GOP Lawmakers Claim 'New Wind Blowing' in Vermont Statehouse

This is why Republicans "can't get no respect" -
There is an absence of principles in the shadow of perceived popularity

Re: “Subaru's Champion Team Races Under the Radar — in Vermont

Nicely done who knew? I would think that Vermont would be a natural for many different levels of auto rally racing

Re: “Conservative Senator Peg Flory to Hang Up Her Spurs

Great article, Peg Flory has lived her young life and her political career as a survivor and a fierce fighter. I'm thankful that she chose to serve in the Vermont House and Senate, even in minority, for a portion of her professional life.

Re: “Analysis: Caving on Single-Payer, Shumlin Forfeits Remaining Credibility

This venture into leftist La la land was a good exercise, hopefully future elitists will examine it with care.
