Re: “At Public Meeting, Federal Officials Seek to Calm BTV Airport Uproar

Beware people of Bulington! F35's fly here in Arizona and they are MUCH LOUDER and I am nowhere near the flyway. On cloudy or overcast days (like Vermont most of the winter) the noise is even greater! Good Luck to everyone living in a 10-mile radius of BTV! Life will not be as you currently know it.

Re: “Push Comes to Gov: Will Shumlin Face a Primary?

I sure hope the Gov is challenged by someone... anyone. Time for him to leave! I can't afford to stay here now. Another term will bankrupt us all.

Re: “Sanders and Striking Workers Decry FairPoint, Urge Concessions

Where should the members of the Union begin?

· FairPoint is looking for $700 million in givebacks from 2,000 Union employees (1700 IBEW plus 300 CWA) over a three year contract.

· $700 million divided by the proposed three year term of the contract = $233,333,333.33 per year that FairPoint wants in givebacks.

· $233,333,333.33 divided by 2,000 Union employees = $116,666.66 per Union employee, per year, that FairPoint wants in givebacks.

This amount is $1,666.66 more per year than FairPoint’s stated average annual salary and benefits cost ($115,000.00) for each Union employee. Is FairPoint asking that Union employees work as volunteers, without wages or benefits, and also pay their employer $1,666.66, per employee, per year?

Negotiations are a process of give and take... not all take. I am sure the striking workers are not enjoying this. To simply make the statement (as fairpoint has) that they are "ready to negotiate" and then reject anything but their own company proposals is hardly a sincere effort by management to get this resolved and serve the customers they so desperately need.
