Re: “Mayor Urges City Council to Reject Co-op Bid for Burlington Telecom

cwinklem - there are only several days before one of the three bids needs to be eliminated, so no, it isn't a coincidence that he timed his advice to the council this way. A public process doesn't mean that a bid that has the support of local activists must win, especially when it is particularly weak and would put the city in legal jeopardy. The mayor has to be a responsible steward of city finances, even when that includes not taking the seemingly popular decision of selling something to a local owner for less than half what it is worth.

Re: “Jars of CBD-Infused Broth Recalled by Maker

JT Bedard - I don't think the USDA derives its enforcement authority from the Controlled Substances Act and it is a different agency with different statutory authorization than the FDA or DEA.

Re: “Million-Dollar Question: How Much Should Nonprofit Hospital CEOs Earn?

Jay-Man - the medical school is part of the university, which is a wholly separate non-profit (that has its own high salaries). The medical center is distinct from the university, even though they share a name as a result of collaboration over teaching medical residents.

Re: “Cop on the Tweet: Chief's Social Media Posts Draw Criticism

Happy to see Chief Del Pozo engaging with his community and, more importantly, using the tools available to him to debunk false accusations of serious misconduct. Attention should be focused on genuine problems, there are plenty of them.

Re: “Stiffed? Women Say a Retail Shop That Is Closing Owes Them Money

If they filed bankruptcy, they might be blocked by law or court order from paying amounts owed to consignors. These are probably unsecured creditors, who in bankruptcy proceedings must be paid last after secured creditors (like banks, some types of investors, bondholders, etc.). Paying out of order of seniority could put the company and its managers in legal jeopardy.

Re: “The Doctor Is Out: Lawmakers Seek 'Lifeline' for Independent Physicians

So they like independent practices because they represent competition, but don't want them to have to compete for reimbursement.

Re: “Not So Fast: Opposition to Appeal Burlington Town Center Permit

It's weird to hear someone complain about both housing prices and efforts to build more housing in the same comment. Housing demand is high, housing supply is low, thus high prices. You can either reduce demand or increase supply to cut back or stabilize prices. Increasing supply is what the town center redevelopment will do, which is a pretty unmitigated Good Thing for housing access in Burlington.
