Re: “Uprooted: Burlington Farmers Market Seeks a New Home

Just like folks thought we would never lose First Night, the Farmers Market is no guarantee. I blame many parties but especially the city that came to the attention late, and to build what resembles a corporate plaza for our historic city park district. I don't see the market coming out of this stronger. Ironically a winter market success at a renovated Memorial seems a better possibility, but really nothing on the horizon for a truly effective summer market.

Re: “Couple Plans to Build a House on Burlington's Steep Depot Street

`That lot should have been preserved for green space long ago, instead we have a gentrified corner into an increasingly waterfront that is prohibitive rent or ownership wise. Are these folks going to be the latest to complain about our waterfront events, noise, and people? Yeah, Ann Arbor, once an affordable town, even more gentrified than Burlington today, does he realize why that town is no longer affordable?

Re: “UVM Medical Center Seeks to Hire Hundreds in Advance of Strike

So with the increasingly hazardous work conditions for nurses trying to burn the candle at both ends while helping save and care for patients, who would support scabs coming with in a huge paycheck, trained under two days to simply try and fill the shoes of the present nurses? Makes no sense and guaranteed to increase the chance of injury , death, and malpractice suits. The for profit scab for hire company laughs all the way to the bank, no one shows up at their door. And as it typically in capitalism, everyone else fights for the same slice of pie. National healthcare would take care of this.

Re: “Entrepreneurship Community Planned for Cambrian Rise

This feels like another nail in the coffin for working people in this city. Maybe the playbook is the enclosed city of the rich with their full rights intact and the rest of us as indentured servants welcome as we keep quiet and out of the way from their sensibilities.

Re: “Montpeculiar: A Message of 'Anal Sex' in Front of the Statehouse

The sign just shows the proper word for a particular sexual act, nothing obscene here. I just would walk by on my merry way.

Re: “Opponents of Burlington City Hall Park Redesign Speak for the Trees

Looks like this design looks better for one of those corporate parks where employees can take lunch breaks and be monitored by their masters thanks to cameras and security everywhere.

Re: “Walters: Top Vermont GOP Official Backs Roy Moore

I expect each Republican town committee to vote on demanding the resignation of Butterfield from State Chair. If she doesn't comply, I would expect them to revolt and pick their own chair to represent their state party, she obviously doesn't .
