Rebecca Chomyn portrait_0363.jpg

During her sophomore year in college, then 18-year-old Rebecca Nase Chomyn showed up to her first welding class in a skirt and flip flops. That was the day they were doing a demo of plasma cutting.

“Basically you’re shooting fire toward the ground as you cut metal,” said Chomyn, who graduated from Pratt Institute, in Brooklyn, N.Y., with a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in sculpture. “And I had flip flops on! I never did that again.”

By MICHELLE MONROE of the St. Albans Messenger



WASHINGTON, D.C. — A new federal farm bill, passed by the U.S. Senate Tuesday and expected to pass the House on Wednesday, provides some provisions that Vermont food producers will like.

The bill, which still must be signed by President Trump, makes some modest improvements in dairy programs while stopping an effort by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to label the sugar in maple syrup and pure honey as “added sugar.”

FitzGerald Mt Abe facilities_cmyk 4053.jpg

BRISTOL — When Joel FitzGerald accepted the job as facilities director of the Mount Abraham Unified School District, he knew what he was getting into. His brother has lived in the 5-Towns for more than 35 years and the second generation of FitzGeralds is about to enter its school district.
