Re: “High E. Coli Levels Force Closures at Two Burlington Beaches

In September 2011, after a 30-day public comment period, EPA issued a second ESD modifying the remedy. For nearly ten years, the groundwater plume beneath the site was stable. However, since 2008, increases in benzene concentrations in groundwater samples along with the intermittent presence of measurable accumulations of coal tar in several monitoring wells indicate that additional containment is needed. To protect Lake Champlain from potentially being impacted by the migration of contaminated groundwater and coal tar left on site, a 200-300 foot long vertical barrier and passive recovery wells were installed during 2012 - 2013.

So...have people forgotten that Pine Street Barge Canal is the "location" of a massive " superfund waste clean up site"? Excessive runoff at the rate this water was to have flowed will have created issues greater then just stormwater runoff! The EPA needs to step in and fine the hell out of Burlinton! Enough is enough! Get off your backside Miro!

Re: “Vermont's School Merger Plan Gets Mixed Reviews

Its becoming increasingly clear that our votes and voices do not matter. This was a bad idea from the start, first when the state went to numerous towns and told them their building s were not acceptable, these towns then built new schools only to be told a year later after completion that it needed to close because lack of students which then forced towns to either close their school or come up with "creative" ways to help offset their cost. Rising and uncontrollable special ed costs with no oversite has continued to cripple schools , rising busing costs, lack of local control and not having an equal amout of board members are even greater concern for parents, not to mention the extra time our children are bussed to other schools , earlier pick ups and drop offs create havocs on families already struggling to stay afloat... This state is becoming more and more obsessed with removing our rights as voters!

Re: “Committed: A Son's Mental Illness, a Father's Fight

So sad, this is why I became my daughter's guardian. The road we travel is hard , navigating the state and other agencies . I fight daily as some "well meaning" agencies can and will exploit those with mental illness or Autism. My biggest fear is the future, but hopefully I have done all I can and she will be safe and well! Do not give up the fight!

Re: “Vermont Delegation: Congress Must Approve Strikes on Syria

Where was their concern when they sold weapons, where was their concern when Obama did this? It seems that the 2 men above..using that term loosly seem to play by their own rules..or should I say dance to Hillary's purse strings.

Re: “Into the Arena: Gov. Phil Scott Confronts the Gun Issue Head-On

Poor Phil! Did he seriously think he was going to get support when he clearly stated he would not sign a bill like this? Poor Phil...did he think that "his" party was going to stand by and take this? Poor Phil... poor phil..this isnt just about what he signed or how he signed it..remember he signed the pot bill where...embarrassed? ashamed? This is about taking away rights , rights that were given to us! The next bill he will sign might be...freedom of speech! Once something is taken away its a long drawn out battle to get it back..ohh and Mitzi..you only won by around 80 votes in GI county...looks like you will need to find another job!

Re: “Call to ‘Make Vermont Great Again’ Dismays Some GOP Lawmakers

I got this email and quite frankly its appropriate considering how things are being done by our elected officials! I think based on all who voted to take away our rights will be getting a wake up call election day! I know I am extremely mad because Scott turned his back on promises he made and caved! One term Scott..we will not forget this..Our second amendment was created to protect us from people like Scott and his goverment!
