I wrote an op-ed for the Valley News (my local paper) on price of power in the Northeast. Nuclear plants are providing the backstop against electricity price rises due to the rising price of natural gas. I am proud that my op-ed is on the front page of the Valley News Perspective section. Vermont's Surplus of Power Uncertainty
The paper came late to my doorstep today. Before it had even arrived, I had an email from a member of my town selectboard thanking me for the informative article. That sort of thing just makes me glow!
A hearty thank you to Martin Frank, editor of the Valley News. He helped me achieve clarity as well as brevity on this subject. That is what a good editor can do. I am grateful.
