    Nov 18, 2015 | American Reporter

    Despite Sen. John McCain's belief to the contrary, the situation in Iraq has become increasingly twisted and convoluted. It is almost like Milo Minderbinder, the wheeler-dealer from Joseph Heller's World War II novel "Catch-22," is in charge.

    Aug 18, 2011 | American Reporter

    There is virtually no doubt that global warming exists. Aside from a few cranks and those heavily invested in the fossil fuel industry, the scientific consensus is that the Earth's climate is changing, and changing faster than ever before.

    Nov 11, 2015 | American Reporter

    I was going to tell you all the things I'm thankful for this year, starting with the fact that my dancer mother, who is 92, frail, ornery, determined and living alone in Florida , just survived another serious infection. She got out of the hospital on Tuesday morning - barely.

    Nov 11, 2015 | American Reporter

    When President Barack Obama said, during his State of the Union speech, "But to create more of these clean energy jobs... that means building a new generation of safe, clean nuclear power plants in this country," I literally howled.

    On the morning of Memorial Day, I was standing on the Brattleboro town common, in the shadow of the town's Civil War Memorial, for a ceremony to mark the 150th anniversary of the end of that terrible war. The cause of human freedom is something Vermonters take seriously.

    Dec 28, 2010 | American Reporter

    While too many of our leaders in Washington pretend that global warming, peak oil and the growing numbers of the hungry in our nation are just figments of the liberal imagination, I recently got a glimpse of a project that, when fully operational, will take care of all three problems and provide jobs in the process. How? A Vermont company called Carbon Harvest Energy is running a 250-kilowatt generator that takes methane gas from the former Windham Solid Waste Management District landfill in Brattleboro and turns it into electricity.

    Apr 13, 2012 | American Reporter

    It has not been extensively reported, but the Obama Administration has retained and expanded upon many of the national security abuses that were initiated during the Bush Administration.

    When Emmylou Harris sang Townes Van Zandt's "When I Needed You" at the Green River Festival last month, she said she was often asked to sing it at weddings. But it played over and over in my mind two weeks ago at the Brattleboro, Vt., Food Co-op's candlelight vigil for Michael Martin, who was shot in the back of the head at his desk by a disgruntled employee at the start of the working day.
