Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
It feels almost surreal to say, but can you believe that we are now looking back at 2020?
It was an incredibly challenging year, with the COVID-19 pandemic, the severe and unequal economic fallout it brought, a national reckoning with persistent structural racism, and...
To the Editor,
“The Marketing Plan” for Wilmington needs a critique. 
First of all, this plan or any plan can’t help businesses that can’t or don’t know how to help themselves! There are easy principles, Economics 101: First, location, easy access to the business by foot or phone;...
To the Editor,
Any aware person knows that Donald Trump is a lawless miscreant: an authoritarian who can’t see beyond himself; a sociopath incapable of empathy; and a pathological liar. Since his presidential defeat, he has toyed with a coup d’etat by encouraging his followers to invade...
To the Editor
As the owners of the Airbnb property referenced in Mike Eldred’s January 7 article “Dover homeowner says Airbnb rental is clogging access to his property,” we were distressed by Mr. Eldred’s eagerness to take Mr. Sedlack’s specious claims at face value. Since purchasing the...
To the Editor,
Shall I say it? It’s not polite. It may be “divisive.”

All of this in...
To the Editor,
The president called only for a peaceful march. The rally and speech were unwise in that it disputed an already decided and irreversible election. A lack of confidence in the election results for the previous two months was not unwarranted, but holding out hope of a reversal...
To the Editor,
As we come out of the crucible of the pandemic and look to a new year, we need more than recovery, we need to work together to advance renewal and resilience for our communities and economy. The Vermont Council on Rural Development has been asking Vermonters what recovery...
To the Editor,
Trump reportedly intends to keep pushing the baseless claim that massive fraud of unbelievable scope robbed him of reelection even after Congress accepts the results, because  “Why should I ever let this go?... How would that benefit me?”
That Trump plans to continue...
To the Editor,
How many who were glad to see H.57 signed by Phil Scott in 2019, and who support Prop 5, hope that Raphael Warnock will win a Senate seat in Georgia this week? Warnock has unabashedly proclaimed his support for the murder of preborn children, as well as killing babies who...
