    The town we need

        We apparently now have an increase in our Town real estate taxes for the coming fiscal year.    The Town may need this increase, but how can we keep increasing taxes and at the same time cutting needed access to our Landfill and other services. The cuts started some years ago by cutting the hours of operation.

  • School lunches that kids will eat
  • Run, Bernie run: Defend the middle class

        Vermont’s independent U.S. Senator confirmed last week what many have suspected: Bernie Sanders will be a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
        If you don’t follow politics as intensely as I do, it’s possible you’ve never heard of him. But that’s going to change very soon.
        Once known as “the socialist mayor of Burlington,” Vermont, Sanders was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012.

  • Better change now before it’s too late

        One of the fascinating things about the denizens of the “Democratic” Party’s extreme-left wing swamp is the way they attack conservative critics of President Barack Obama’s efforts to negotiate a deal, any deal even if it’s a bad deal, with Iran on nuclear weapons. In their parlance, conservative critics of President Obama are war mongers. They claim we want to start a war.

  • The reason why

        Last week Bedford Democrats invited all of those running for a Board of Supervisors seat to attend their meeting and make their views known. Two of the candidates showed up—a third had planned to attend but couldn’t because of a medical issue.
        The others declined. At least one of those who didn’t attend stated their reason was because they were seeking the Republican nomination.

    Day of Silence

        The educators I know are dedicated to the children with whom they have been entrusted.  They put in countless hours and are under appreciated.   Some at the middle and high school level are being held hostage by the word “anti-bullying.”
        Educators, parents and grandparents need to have their radar up as The Day of Silence occurs every April since the early 2000s.  This year it was Friday, April 17.

  • Tax reforms are the foundation of an opportunity economy

    Tax Day has come and gone, but the aggravation and frustration of tax season is still fresh in many minds. It’s during this particularly “taxing” time of year that hard working Americans are confronted with piles of forms, confusing instructions, and the prospect of turning more of their hard-earned money over to the government. Anyone who has filed taxes knows that the current tax code is overly complex and unfair. If America is to remain competitive in the global economy and build an economy ripe with opportunity here at home, the current tax system must be reformed.
