Will Durst: How Many Turkeys Died for your Dinner?
We've spent such a large portion of the past year cringing at the prospect of potential disasters crouching behind every bush: ISIS, Putin, Trump, Belicheck, lion-killing dentists, that a national holiday right about now is a blessed respite. For one 24-hour period, the whole country can focus on something benign. Unless, you're a Black Friday shopper. But those are self-inflicted injuries.

Do you realize we've been giving thanks for almost 400 years?"

John McClaughry: Freedom As The School District Solution
The ranks of people opposed to the controversial school consolidation act (Act 46) are rapidly growing. The Vermont School Boards Association has expressed grave displeasure with the provision that penalizes local school districts that spend more than the state thinks necessary.

Mark Whitworth: Climate Change - Degrading Our Defenses
In the past few weeks, two of the architects of Governor Shumlin's energy policies acknowledged that the policies will have no impact on climate change. They disclosed, in separate interviews, that the purpose of the policies is economic development and not climate change mitigation. They neglected to disclose that these economic development policies will actually worsen the impacts of climate change in Vermont.

Gov. Peter Shumlin: Reversing the trend of rising incarceration rates
For most of the last two decades, Vermont's prison inmate population has been rising. Between 1997 and 2008, it grew by 86 percent. Projections made in 2007 said that Vermont's inmate population would grow to 2,619 by November 2015. After years of work to reform Vermont's criminal justice system that trend has been reversed, and today Vermont has 1,734 inmates, 885 less than projected.

Susan Stamper Brown: ISIS Is Contained, President Obama?
The Nov. 13 Paris terrorist attack was well-coordinated with suicide bombings, grenade attacks, deadly shootings and hostage taking. As body counts rose, France's borders closed and a state of emergency declared. Hours later, the Islamic State [ISIS] threatened it was just the first with more to follow.

Alan Morgan: Rural Hospitals At Risk
Many rural hospitals are struggling to keep their doors open in the face of rising costs. Fifty-eight have closed since 2010 and many more may follow if the pharmaceutical industry gets its way and dismantles a little-known federal drug discount program called 340B.

Rob Roper: Telling The Truth About Vermont's Energy Policy
How often have we heard advocates for extensive wind and solar development on Vermont ridge lines and pastures (heavily subsidized by tax and ratepayers) say that these efforts are necessary to curb global climate change, prevent future tropical storms like Irene, and save the maple sugar and ski industries? Pretty often.

Doug Webster: 'Making' An Education
Vermont students are making their mark in the "maker" movement. At this year's Champlain Maker Faire, 11-year-old Noah Schwartz stood in front of dozens, including a group of angel investors on motorcycles, FreshTracks Road Pitch Riders, to pitch "Noah's Fizzy Maple Lemonade." Noah, competing against those who graduated college and beyond, won first place.

Geoffrey Norman: Silly Season On Campus
College kids are behaving foolishly and saying stupid things. This is the headline story of the day, and the week and, who knows, maybe for a long time to come. These things spread from campus to campus because these are kids and they don't want to be left out or appear to be uncool. So if the kids at the University of Missouri and at Yale are doing the protest thing, then pretty soon the kids at Amherst and even UVM will be, too.
