Re: “Officials Want Sugar Houses Registered in Vermont's E911 System

Good grief! There was a time not too long ago where there were no phones or ambulances or fire trucks but, thank God, we have progressed. If you want to live in the last century, have at it.

Re: “Officials Want Sugar Houses Registered in Vermont's E911 System

Not nanny state. If you dont want to register then dont. Its not required. Its simply emergency services trying to improve their response and efficiency. In an emergency seconds and minute mattter. If you chose not to register, fine, but then please do not whine about a negative outcome. Your choice! I choose increased safety. My life and the life of my friends may depend on it.

Re: “Berned Bridges? Sanders Dogged by 2016 Charges

The Commons is a great newspaper. It has a lot of reader input. I would hate to see it go. That damn internet just has too much free stuff. I recently told my son I have a digital subscription to the New York Times and he went on to explain how I could get it for free. Some body has to to pay the salaries. Good luck to all of the local newspapers.

Re: “Union Members Dispute Claim of 'Unanimous' Driscoll Endorsement

This is why we need right to work laws. As a former union member and union rep I can tell you that with forced membership union leaders do as they please without any mandates from the membership. Many union members are so frustrated by this that they do not participate in the union at all. There is good to unions but also bad. This is an example of the bad.

Re: “Former Vermont State Senator Ed Flanagan Dies

Just because you can say something doesn't mean that you have to. The whole masturbating topic was completely unnecessary. As mentioned in another post - tasteless. Just hoping that when you reach your end that your life's work is not summarized in a similar manner.

Re: “Vermont Huts Association Launches Statewide System of Trailside Cabins

An interesting idea. There are many shelters on the LT but typically not that close to roads lest they become "party spots". I am not a big fan of the hut system in the White Mountains mostly because they are expensive for the average person. Let's see how this works out.

Re: “Vermont Considers Dumping Dorothy Canfield Fisher Over Ties to Eugenics Movement

Reminds me of the line from Monty Pythons' Life of Brian "All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?"

To judge anyone that was born in 1879 by todays standards is quite ludicrous.
