Business as usual for Vermont healthcare until feds act

Posted on April 3, 2017 |
By John Flowers



SALISBURY — While the Trump administration’s effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed in Congress, state lawmakers at the March 27 Legislative Breakfast in Salisbury said it’s too soon to tell what, if any, short- or long-term changes are in store for Vermont’s health care system.

“It’s all up in the air,” said Sen. Claire Ayer, D-Addison, whose committee deals with health care legislation.

Van Wyck alone in rejecting proposed state budget

Posted on April 3, 2017 |
By Elizabeth Hewitt VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Ferrisburgh state Rep. Warren Van Wyck was the only lawmaker voting nay when the Vermont House of Representatives advanced a $5.8 billion state budget package this past Thursday.

It was a rare moment of tripartisan financial unity as the House OK’d the state finance plan for the next fiscal year, which does not raise any new taxes or fees.

The budget gained preliminary approval on a vote of 143 in favor, one opposed. It was expected to pass by a similar margin when the House gave its final approval Friday.

Late winter pruning: The perfect antidote for cabin fever

Posted on April 3, 2017 |
By Judith Irven



n Late Winter pruning LEAD D71-711902.jpg

Late winter is cabin fever season; after months of indoor living we find ourselves yearning for spring, and we can surely be forgiven for grumbling about Vermont’s recent March blizzard.

Wikipedia describes cabin fever as “a claustrophobic reaction from being confined in a small space for an extended period of time, resulting in extreme irritability and restlessness, often accompanied by an urge to go outside, even in rain, snow, dark or hail.” I certainly understand the urge to get outdoors, but I prefer to skip the rain, dark and hail.

Take down bird feeders in spring

Posted on March 27, 2017 |
By Addison Independent



n VTF&W Bear MAKE LEAD HZ.jpg

MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says warm spring weather and melting snows will cause bears to come out of their winter dens in search of food. The department recommends taking down bird feeders on April 1 to avoid attracting them.

Bears are very fond of suet and bird seed, especially black oil sunflower seed. Bringing feeders in at night doesn’t work, because bears will still feed on seed that is spilled on the ground.

n judge Karen Carroll headshot.png

MONTPELIER — Gov. Phil Scott on Thursday revealed his pick to be the next justice on Vermont’s top court.

Scott named Judge Karen Russell Carroll to fill the seat on the state Supreme Court that will be vacated by Justice John Dooley at the end of this month. Carroll will be appointed April 1.

Carroll has had a lengthy career in Vermont, as both a prosecutor and on the bench — including presiding over an unusual case in which a sharply divided state Supreme Court later overturned the conviction because of her conduct.
