Opinion: Stay home, Vermont

Anna Huener, Staff Writer December 7, 2020
On November 13, Governor Phil Scott issued an ordinance ordering Vermonters to halt multi-family gatherings, and closing bars and social clubs. Initially, I was shocked. I had convinced myself that the lockdown was done, forgotten, and never to happen again. Yet, here we were, eight months later, retreating into our homes. It was aggravating to see all this new freedom taken away after only a few months. But aggravation isn’t going to do anything to stop the virus or lower the cases in our small state. The best way to help, in this situation, is to do nothing at all.

OPINION: Throw it Away

Nora Jacobsen November 7, 2019

Cleaning up after ourselves is not a humanitarian act worthy of praise. It is a simple sign of respect. When you leave a mess, intentional or not, the effect is the same: custodians are forced to take...
