Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
Over the past few years, I have been following the discussion in Vermont regarding the taxation of military pensions. I remain fully perplexed, as does our governor, by our legislative inability to exempt military pensions from taxation.
Vermont is one of only three...
To the Editor,
Last week marked both National Nurses Week and Teacher Appreciation Week.
These two professions have worked harder than ever during the pandemic. Recently, the Vermont State School Nurses’ Association estimate a shortage of school nurses in K-12 schools in Vermont.  ...
To the Editor,
On May 8, Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital held its 12th annual “Spring into Health” 5K.
 In light of the pandemic, we had a “hybrid,” event this year with some people participating virtually and some participating in person. In the live event, participants...
To the Editor,

To the Editor,
As you know, Readsboro’s 2021 Town Meeting will be held on Saturday, May 15, at 10 am at the school field.
I believe the requested raise and appropriations, if all pass, would be an overall increase of 3%, and appear in line with needs.
I do have concerns with...
To the Editor,
I’m writing this letter in response to a recent correspondence Tom Ferrazza, the chairman of the prudential committee of the North Branch Sewer District, wrote only to voting citizens in the community, while selectively excluding the community as a whole.  
To the Editor,
I am writing this because of serious concerns I have with the way  North Branch Fire District #1 has been managed recently. For instance they did not hold an annual meeting last year although they could have conducted one via Zoom. Instead they just extended everyone’s term...
