Tully can think outside the box

It is time someone stood up for the governor's choice as replacement representative to complete Matthew Trieber's term in the Windham-3 district.

Kelley Cota Tully is a bright, creatively thinking individual who is extremely responsive to her district. She knows and loves her community and works hard to do her homework on the current and future issues, while finding the time to speak with her constituents and contemplate the everyday hardships they deal with.

At this time in our state's history, we need more people like Kelley who can think out of the box to get us to where we need to be, with conviction, creativity, and grit.

Really? After all the scientific research available on this toxic product?

Where the blame belongs...

I found this poem the other day, in the History of the Town of Rockingham Vermont: 1907-1957. It still fits. §If you want to live in the kind of town, §Like the kind of a town that you'd like, §You needn't slip your clothes in a grip §And start on a long, long hike. §You'll only find what you left behind §For there's nothing that's really new, §It's a knock at yourself when you knock your town, §It isn't your...

Let’s work together for Bellows Falls

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful residents of Bellows Falls who signed my petition and cast their ballot my way for Village Trustee in the election on May 17. Although I ran unopposed, it matters to me to see that folks want clarity in their local government, and want Bellows Falls to be the place they call home. In addition, I want to let residents know that, as a gesture of good faith in...
