By Lauren Hierl



This guest editorial is by Lauren Hierl, political director of Vermont Conservation Voters.

Governor Scott and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources declared Aug. 20-27, “Clean Water Week” in Vermont. While I believe it is important to highlight the value of clean water, we have a lot of work to do to achieve clean water for all Vermonters.

Posted on August 28, 2017 |
By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — The state Legislature this winter is likely to again debate the question of whether to legalize possession of small amounts of marijuana, and the Middlebury selectboard wants to know how local residents feel about that issue.
