Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
Mike Fisher, Vermont’s health care advocate, recently wrote that low-income seniors and people with a disability on Medicare are struggling with the high costs of the program. He is encouraging the legislature and the Scott administration to support H.118 and S.61, twin...
To the Editor,
Economic justice is a civil liberties issue. The Fair Share for Vermont campaign is calling for Vermont’s wealthiest residents to pay their fair share in taxes so we can build a better state for all of us.   
As part of this campaign, the ACLU of Vermont and our...
To the Editor,
The Twin Valley high school students that are going to the Galapagos are still fundraising. We would like to thank the community for the past support. In the next two months we have a lot more fun events to get the community involved. Put these on your calendar: Bingo night...

To the Editor,

Winter walking and driving are never...
To the Editor,
