Re: “Food Fight: Burlington-Area Grocers Spar for Customers

Same for telecom? "The demand for local is strong; the demand for having a community-owned, member-owned [grocery store] is strong," he said.

Re: “Burlington Fined $44,000 for Public Works Safety Violations

At the entrance to Shore Rd, DPW installed a middle turning lane that conflicts with street parking. Vehicles entering Shore Rd from North Ave are headed straight into parked cars. We have to cross over into the turning lane to avoid parked vehicles. Frequently over-sized parked vehicles there block sight line, making it even more dangerous.

Now, DPW has added a big orange sign to the travel lane, making the situation even worse.

This dangerous situation has been addressed by residents, and dismissed by DPW. If there is an accident and/or injury at this location, the City will be held liable.

Yea, CBD and hemp on our farms instead of cows. That is a wonderful idea! Win/win!

Re: “Hood's Off: Burlington White Nationalist Attended Charlottesville Rally

This is hard to read, and the video is devastating -- especially after hearing Trump's rogue speech today. We like to think Burlington is different, but hearing from someone from Burlington who was marching in Charlottesville, with a tiki torch, is stark reality. Thanks to SG and 7-D for raising our awareness.

Re: “What's Up With That Wild Yard on Shelburne Road?

More and more people are using their yards for gardens and orchards. Times have changed, yards have changed, and the gardens and orchards are practical and functional.

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Vermont Socialist Gets Equal Share of Credit for Wife’s Career

Where to start with that comment about socialism ruining Venezuela. Well, start with the collapse of oil prices.

Re: “North Avenue Bike Lane Survey Leads to Controversy

The survey is done, the crash data is in, now Council votes and we can move on. Politicians used this issue to activate their base but as the recent landslide election of a progressive democrat in Ward 7 indicates, the times they are a'changin.
