Re: “Walters: Did the Governor Just Wave the White Flag?

Reading the comments, you'd think teachers and their representation were the worst thing to happen to VT since the Emerald Ash Borer.

Teachers are not the enemy of taxpayers, nor is the NEA. The enemy is a lack of uniform school funding mechanisms, declining populations, and forced consolidation by the threat of losing ones' town schools. Well-funded schools mean better-educated graduates, who can go on to improve and grow the local economy.

Phil tried his hand at being political in a half-assed way, a day (or 2.5 months) late and a dollar short. He won't get his way on this negotiation.

Re: “Magic Hat Opens Full Tasting Room With Food, and a Party

Looks like a nice redesign. Too bad about the beer, though.

Re: “Weinberger Apologizes for City Role in Donovan Endorsement

When will Miro apologize for using the city's resources to campaign for a New York-based private developer's pipe dream?

Re: “Pro-Wind Group Seeks to Change Message

Why am I shocked that the conversation here has been dominated by two accounts (who may be the same person for all we know)? Annette seems to believe that posting over and over again will show she's right; non-biased facts show her to be in the minority.

I ask those who oppose renewables here what they'd rather powering the grid, right now and in the future. Coal? Oil? Natural Gas? Nuclear? We can't power ourselves on hydro alone (not to mention the thousands of displaced First Nation residents in Quebec thanks to Hydro-Quebec), and I've heard only NO from Annette and her crew of Internet bloviators.

Re: “Milton Diners Take Comfort Food Seriously

Allow me to translate this article...
There's no restaurant in town to sit down, order a healthy or fresh or just not fried menu item, and pay somewhere around $10-15 a person. But apparently there are pokemon. And grease.

Re: “Go Time? Cabinet Members Prepare for Life After Shumlin

It's fairly obvious that Gannet does not get along with "real" journalism, given their ever-desperate moves at the BFP and other regional papers. At this point, I'd rather see it dead than publishing fluff pieces, national pablum, and sponsored content masquerading as real news.

Re: “Mayor, Developer Reach Agreement on Burlington Town Center Redevelopment

This proposal sounds like a rotten long-term deal for Burlington and for the taxpayers
