Who’s in charge here? I have lived in Shelburne for over 54 years, paid my taxes, gotten along pretty well with the cops, made appropriate donations to all the good “causes”, and watched with amusement, amazement, and sometimes actual fear, at how Shelburne has evolved over that period of time. But the latest “board game” […]

Letters to the Editor

Larger network of paths benefits Shelburne I wholeheartedly disagree with Bill Supple’s statement that “There are miles of professionally-designed and safe paths that link all the neighborhoods in Shelburne for pedestrians and bicyclists to use.”  While Shelburne is a beautiful town with much to offer, it pales in comparison to many Chittenden County towns such […]

Thank you very […]

In addition, […]

Still no word: what will single payer cost?

We appreciate the “Report from Montpelier” that our state representatives, Joan Lenes and Kate Webb, provided in last week’s Shelburne News.  We wish there were more information provided, such as an indication of the new health care system cost. As was stated in their report, “many have expressed frustration with the Governor because of a […]
