Re: “Burlington to Consider Eliminating Tax on Business Property

Meanwhile, 65-100 people are out of a job, losing on average let's say, $18,000 per year. That's now $1.8 MILLION taken out of the local economy. Sixty five to one hundred FAMILIES now scrambling to figure out how they will pay rent, groceries and more.

If you were employed at Macy's and didn't see the writing on the wall then shame on you. They have been closing doors across the country. Like it or not the classic department store that has not found a niche market is going by the wayside. Yes losing these jobs is hard but it was on the horizon with or without the purchase of the building.

Re: “Mall Developer to Buy Macy's Building in Downtown Burlington

Unless you're lost for Xmas ideas and you're a day away from the fat jolly guy squeezing through the chimney, please tell me the last time you decided to take a stroll through Macy's? How about we allow that space to be developed into something useful and walk the extra 500 yards to the developing waterfront to enjoy the sunset...

Breathe it will all be okay,

Re: “Saint Michael's Basketball Players Take a Knee Before UVM Game

Athletes in small division schools that don't have the national spotlight cast upon are using this stage to get their message heard. It's asinine to think that taking a knee before the flag during the national anthem to protest racial injustice is wrong. The only truly asinine actions are from those who spew hate from uneducated mouths towards those that are looking for change for the better.
