ADDISON COUNTY — As the latest revision of proposed farming practice rules loosens requirements on an estimated 1,000 Vermont farms, some in the agriculture community are wondering what happened to the rallying cry “All in!” on Lake Champlain cleanup.

“We went into this water quality understanding that we (farmers) own 40 percent of the problem. And we are in, and we are working,” said Marie Audet of Bridport’s Blue Spruce Farm at a recent luncheon with county legislators.

BRISTOL — April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Like most people, those words would mean little to me prior to 2010, the year I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. I had heard of Parkinson’s but paid little attention to it. I suppose that is the way we are with most things until it affects us or those we love.
