Re: “Tight Squeeze Coffee Shop Changes Hands

Hoping the new owners keep the same vibe as Lisa and Matt. Also hope they keep the Barrio Bakery offerings on the menu.

Re: “Sound and Fury: Wind Foe Unleashes Blast of Rhetoric

And Whitworth's accusations reflect that mind-set. He believes that large-scale wind is a social and environmental menace which means that anyone who supports it must be corrupt or unenlightened.
This man is closed minded.

Hannah, a crawfish is not a mollusk. It is a crustacean.

Re: “ICE Arrests Two More Immigration Advocates in Burlington

The people that are helping the Vermont dairy industry need to be aware of their situation. Illegal means you could be deported at any time. Now, that being said. What do we do with the EMPOYERS who hire illegal immigrants regularly regardless of the laws. Perhaps THEY should be prosecuted?

Re: “Burlington Town Center Project Gets the Green Light

YAY! Let's make Burlington the city it was meant to be! Development means long ter jobs for many people in Burlington, as well as bringing in much more revenue to the city.

Re: “Officials Want to House Homeless in Old Burlington College Dorm

Instead of transitional housing, which has a lot of restrictions and conditions, why not permanent housing? The Housing First approach is an evidence based approach to ending homelessness. At its core it says, you end homelessness by providing homes. No preconditions. No sobriety clauses. Homes. This is a proven approach that, in most places where it is used, including Vermont, has a success rate of at least 85%, often more.
