WEDNESDAY'S HUM ( 11-15-06 )


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.

The David Usher in your article is one of those people who believes we should think more of business and less about the environment, which is a good example of why the global warming crisis is on the front burner. We must have a balance between courting responsible business AND treating our environment with care.

David Usher actually has a point by noticing that, in order to do business, a company has to have a certain amount of pollution. Imagine everyone, if there were no businesses? Then what?

"David Usher actually has a point..."

Are you nuts?
Part of the reason we're in this climate mess is because business was and is so concerned with the bottom line and not at all concerned with the long term effects of industrial pollution. C'mon!
Wake up and smell the greenhouse gas!

Hi Charity -

Per request we are replaying some of the classic Five Corners Updates, sort of a Best Of. If you see Five Corners Update - Essential Collection, then you know we're spinnin' the oldies.

Regards, Brian
