Letters to the Editor

To the Editor,
Thank you so much for your January 19 editorial about returning to in-person Town Meetings, as it fits nicely with something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately - community. Or, more precisely, how the sense of community seems to be slowly slipping away.
To the Editor,
 The idea of having virtual meetings and Australian ballot to be the norm is contrary to Vermont ideals. Town Meeting is a democratic institution that we need to hold onto.
I know they say this is temporary but I have found that the temporary sometimes becomes...
To the Editor,
The members of Deerfield Valley Rescue, Inc. would like to invite everyone to join us at American Flatbread, 183 Route 100, in West Dover, on Tuesday, January 31, from 4 to 9 pm.
American Flatbread will donate a portion of every flatbread sold that evening to...

To the Editor,
The priorities of the legislative health committees in both the Vermont House and Vermont Senate were recently reviewed in the media. Apparently neither committee’s plans involve dealing with the state’s crisis in health care, which I had thought would be a priority for...
To the Editor,
Thank you to all who have donated calendars, cards - Christmas and all-occasion - and miscellaneous items to the veterans in Bennington. 
Every year our project, through the Daughters of the American Revolution, is to collect these items along with notepads, game...
To the Editor,

My suggestion, made to a longtime VPR reporter as...
