Three months into Permanent November (A.K.A., Global Warming, Vermont Style), this year it’s even harder than usual to know how to have fun getting through the rest of the winter.

Usually we can rely upon typical winter activities — skiing, snowboarding, sledding or even just a nice walk in a snow-covered park — to get us through February and March.

VERGENNES — Vergennes police on Jan. 27 cited two Addison County residents they described as transients for retail theft in a high-profile Chittenden County case that dates back to late 2011.

Vergennes police said they were investigating on behalf of Williston police and issued the citations on behalf of that department.

Posted on February 2, 2012 |
By Eric L. Davis



Childhood obesity is a growing public health problem in the United States. More than one-third of all children and adolescents in America are estimated to be overweight or obese, and thus at greater risk for developing heart disease and diabetes later in their lives.
