Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
For the second year in a row the Wilmington Selectboard has put before the voters at Town Meeting a choice to do away with Town Meeting and go completely to Australian ballot or keep Town Meeting. What was the vote last year, you ask? In favor of canceling Town Meetings - no...
To the Editor,
A Notice of Adoption was published in a recent issue of The Deerfield Valley News regarding changes being made to the Town of Whitingham Dog Ordinance.
As part of the changes, the definition of “Nuisance Dogs” will no longer include barking dogs. The change to this...
To the Editor,
Please don’t vote down a unique Vermont tradition.  Please, everybody who can attend Town Meeting do so.  It is one of the traditions that makes Vermont unique.  I am afraid if we go to just Australian ballot that some budgets will be voted down that people really just...

What are we doing, you might ask?  Well...
To the Editor,

Basically, it allows districts increased spending capacity in “ranges” and becomes taxed differently based on the bracket you fall in. Many are confused that it’s a 5%...
To the Editor,
We would like to thank our family, friends, and community for the outpouring of love and support after the sudden and devastating loss of Rachel Rubin on January 1. She had an undiagnosed heart condition and passed in her sleep. Just 33 years old, vibrant and beautiful, she...
