The Outside Story: Sneaky plants trick gullible ants

Posted on May 26, 2014 |
By Howard Krum



I don’t trust flowers.

There are grounds for my suspicion; flowering plants are proven masters of deception. For instance, the sundew uses sparkling droplets of sticky “faux dew” to ensnare and digest curious flies; bee orchids dupe male wasps into wasting their copulatory efforts on floral structures that look and smell like a female wasp.

Exactly who’s cultivating whom?

Editorial: Republican's retort big on criticism, but lacking courage

Posted on May 23, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Rep. Heidi Scheuermann, R-Stowe, opted not to represent her party as the gubernatorial candidate to challenge Gov. Peter Shumlin for reelection this November, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t interested in running for the state’s top office down the road, or at least grabbing the political spotlight when she can. That seems obvious from her op-ed released at the end of last week challenging the Democrats’ estimation of their own performance this biennium.
