The town that roared

Thank you to the scores of people who came to Sunday’s march and rally to halt Vermont Rail System’s proposed massive rail and trucking operation on the banks of the LaPlatte River. It was inspiring to see so many people (despite the rain) from Shelburne, Charlotte, and all over Chittenden County–so many students and so… Read More »

Protest of traveling animal circus acts

We are writing on behalf of Green Mountain Animal Defenders to express our disappointment that the CV Expo has once again made a decision to bring a traveling animal act to Essex Junction. Sadly, camels, zebras, elephants, big cats, bears, primates, and other wild animals who are used in many circuses must often endure inhumane… Read More »

On behalf of so many concerned Shelburnites, the Vermont United working group would like to thank Kate Webb and Joan Lenes. The citizens of Shelburne are most fortunate to have you both engaged in and understanding of the critical issues we are facing regarding Vermont Rail System’s proposed transfer and storage rail yard.

Ingram for State Senate

I’d like to announce my candidacy as a Democrat for State Senate from Chittenden County. I’m currently serving my fifth year on the Williston Selectboard, after five years on the Williston Planning Commission. I think of myself as a public servant, not a politician, because that was the way I was brought up – my father… Read More »

Commerce and community, industry and neighbors

Having experienced the frustrating and disillusioning process of a legally preempted industrial project in my own neighborhood, I have been closely following the progression of litigation and negotiation regarding Vermont Rail’s proposed industrial facility in Shelburne. In light of the offensive and defensive maneuverings of both sides, it remains clear that open, honest and civil… Read More »

Paying close attention to the issues at hand

Vermont Rail System’s David Wulfson sugarcoats the facts, and out and out bends the truth to his benefit. He has a pattern of this type of behavior. In Charlotte he failed to follow the hazardous materials plan, potentially endangering surrounding residents to the point VELCO nearly turned off power to allay the fire hazard of… Read More »

Consequences of a major salt distribution facility

My wife and I have been Shelburne residents since 1984 and raised our two daughters here. After living in Colchester and Hinesburg since 1970, we chose to move to Shelburne for its beauty and proximity to Burlington. I was shocked, as were most town residents, by the arrogant disregard by Mr. David Wulfson on how… Read More »

Thank you Shelburne voters

Thanks to Shelburne voters for your support of my service as a school director. I’d like to take this opportunity to salute the teachers and administrators of SCS and CVU and, in particular, Chittenden South Supervisory Union. These professionals are dedicated to delivering the highest quality education experience to our children, as they do for… Read More »

Not in this location

There is a huge issue facing our town, and it is one that I believe we all need to pay attention to, and hopefully support. That is the proposed Salt Depot/Intermodal Station Vermont Rail System is starting to build behind Harbour Industries. There are dozens of reasons why this particular location is a really bad… Read More »
