ADDISON COUNTY / MONTPELIER — Over four years of controversy surrounding the construction of a 41-mile natural gas pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury and Vergennes culminated in 30 minutes before the Vermont Supreme Court on Tuesday.

“It’s days like this that can rip the forest apart,” she said.
