WATERBURY — The Vermont Republican Party is somewhat of an endangered species these days.

Republicans hold just 48 of 150 seats in the Vermont House of Representatives, seven of 30 seats in the Senate, and one of six statewide offices.

In 2012, Gov. Peter Shumlin, a Democrat, defeated GOP challenger Randy Brock by 21 points. Brock, a former state senator, outspent Shumlin but managed to secure the vote of just one-third of Vermonters.

By Andy Kirkaldy

Many of those older adults are staying young at heart — and helping mold the youngest generation — by providing more and more childcare for grandchildren and by volunteering for programs that bring them into contact with the children in the community.

Long Trail hiker over 50.JPG
