BRANDON — Artists often focus on the elegance and beauty of plants and flowers, depicting them in a spectrum from abstraction to the minute, scientific detail of botanical illustration.

With glaciers and the polar ice caps melting everywhere and with continuous record breaking warm years, it is about time we did more.

Letter to the editor: Touting Vermont's strengths key to retaining youth

Posted on February 20, 2017 |
By Laurie Cox



An Open Letter to Governor Scott: With all the chaos happening at the federal level, it is difficult for me to focus on the issues within our state. However, that very chaos makes it imperative that we take the right course here. I applaud your stand on the immigration actions, but am concerned about other directions you are espousing.
