Moore: Don’t shop online, shop local

Why should you “shop local”? There are hundreds of reasons to do so, but the most important reasons are that by shopping locally you are supporting the local economy. You are supporting local jobs. You are supporting investment in the community.

Lindberg: For educating Vermonters, it’s time to return to what works

The ruling elite of all parties in Vermont have doubled down on this approach with the coercive and tyrannical Act 46. The political promises of reduced costs, lower taxes, equality of education and increased opportunities were false. The exact opposite result is happening. The next phase of Act 46 will be Gov. Scott’s school closing commission. This for me is unacceptable.
