IP TIRE-BURN PLAN FLAMES OUT
David Usher must be bummed. One of the few proponents we've seen for the IP tire burn, Usher wrote a letter to the Burlington Free Press (11-10-06) , declaring that " IP is doing exactly the right thing..." and " A healthy business in the region is an important asset and Vermont should embrace the experiment rather than oppose it." Usher believes we need to more biz-friendly here in the Green Mountain State and put a lid on the "unfounded paranoia."
Curious why Channel 3 didn't report on the Williston landfill bash last night. On their 11 p.m. newscast, WCAX ran a story on a new law in New York banning the use of tanning beds for kids under 14, but couldn't find the time to run a piece on a jammed and lively info meeting at the Williston Central School, presented by CSWD chief Tom Moreau, a good guy who knows his stuff.
For excellent continuing coverage on the proposed landfill, don't forget about the Williston Observer, which has a decent news department for a smallish weekly.
FIVE CORNERS UPDATE - Essential Collection
Got to the Essex Junction Five Corners Light last night in a movie watching mood. So we got out the portable DVD player and threw in a copy of Mclintock!, a John Wayne classic. We even got out of the car and bought a bag of popcorn at Simon's, on the corner there. We were able to view the whole movie, even the credits, before the light changed.
