Re: “Censorship of Burlington School Newspaper May Have Violated Law

Time for a change of leadership, starting with Green and Obeng... promoting from within the system leads to improvement in morale and inherent understanding of endemic issues.

Re: “Malletts Bay Diner & Bakery Announces September Closure

If our visit in early August was any indication, the rude waitstaff may have had something to do with it. Although only 1 other table was occupied, the older woman server (btw not the owner, who has always been very friendly) refused to allow us (in our late 60s) to be seated with our 5 yr old grandson while waiting for 2 others to join us (who happened to arrive within 5 minutes anyway) telling us that we may be taking up valuable table space they needed, forcing us to wait on counter stools or standing. If this was typical of their service no wonder people stayed away. A shame some waitstaff don't understand that good customer relations equals good business.

Re: “Pioneering Cheesemakers Orb Weaver Transition Their Farm

Wonderful outcome for nice folks all around! It's a shame some other similar VT cheese and butter operations have sold out to huge corporate interests instead of nurturing a new generation of local small farmers. It's only by going back to this kind of farming that VT will lead the way to true sustainable agriculture.

Re: “Selling the Herd: A Milk Price Crisis Is Devastating Vermont's Dairy Farms

Balderdash Rich... what ag corp do you work for? I'm sure you won't say. The corrupt rural agribusiness lobby?? hahaha that would be most amusing if it were not so pathetic. as if the corrupt corporate agribusiness lobby here in the US isn''t magnitudes more powerful,? Yes, that huge lobby representing small rural farmers in Canada is no doubt giving huge sums to politicians, just like AgriMark and Dean Foods? That is flat out laughable!!
The proof is in the pudding and seeing the number of smaller family farms still viable in Quebec. I was amazed when there last summer at the number of smaller but well kept and viable operations in comparison to what I see everyday in VT. Yes it does raise the price of milk a bit, that's a choice they have made to keep family farms viable, and most reasonable people would think that is a worthwhile trade-off. As Upton Sinclair said "It's difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it."

Re: “Selling the Herd: A Milk Price Crisis Is Devastating Vermont's Dairy Farms

All you have to do is drive an hour or 2 North into Quebec and motor around to see the answer. Production control there has worked incredibly well, and the result is highly evident in the large number of reasonably scaled dairies that are still viable and even prospering. Canada has made the decision that it's important to preserve family-sized farms, unlike in the US, where corporate ag entities control our legislators and agenda with their lobbiests, money and influence, yet one more example of how money controls politics in this so-called "Democracy" which in reality is a "Corporatocracy". He who has the most gold makes the rules, and the little guy be damned, as always.

Re: “Walters: Top Vermont GOP Official Backs Roy Moore

And it is high time we hold Predator-In-Chief Trump to the same standard...he need to go as well!
It's a shame Clinton didn't properly pay for his own misdeeds, he surely wouldn't get away with it today.
