The Outside Story: Mountain laurel is a hidden gem

Posted on June 11, 2018 |
By Laurie D. Morrissey



TOS_Mountain_Laurel bw.jpg

If you were fortunate enough to grow up with freedom to roam outdoors, there are likely certain places that stick with you. For me, one of these places is a thicket of old mountain laurels that my brother and I hiked through on our way to an outcrop we called The Ledge. What I loved about them was how their shreddy, red-brown trunks forked and twisted, like trees in a fairy tale, or in the Haunted Forest on the way to Oz. In early summer, they held delicate pink and white flowers that were sticky to the touch — another sign that they were, if not enchanted, at least special.

McKibben poor people campaign VTdigger_0527.jpg

MONTPELIER — Health care access and climate change were at the top of the agenda Monday during an unseasonably chilly afternoon outside Vermont’s Statehouse, where the state chapter of the national Poor People’s Campaign held its fourth protest in as many weeks.

“Seems a little disconnected, right, health care and the environment?” Kate Kanelstein, co-director of the Vermont Workers’ Center, asked approximately 75 protesters gathered on the capitol steps, clutching brightly painted banners being buffeted by the wind.

Help save bobolinks; don't mow large fields just yet

Posted on June 4, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



don't mow yet.jpg

MONTPELIER — Summer in Vermont is greatly enriched by the state’s many grassland birds, from bobolinks flushing up from a grassy field to the beautiful song of an eastern meadowlark. But many of these species are in decline due to the loss of appropriate grassland habitat.

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department and Audubon Vermont are encouraging landowners to help promote these beloved species and give these birds a chance to complete their nesting season simply by altering the times of year that they mow large fields.

Vermont calls a halt to coyote killing competitions

Posted on May 31, 2018 |
By Elizabeth Gribkoff of VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — Vermont has become the second state in the nation to ban coyote killing contests, following in the footsteps of California.

The tournament ban was included in a general fish and wildlife bill, H.636, which Gov. Phil Scott allowed to become law on May 22, but declined to sign.

Scott said he saw the ban as unnecessary and confusing, since coyote hunting remains legal in the state.

MIDDLEBURY — Christine Hallquist enjoys a challenge.

Like taking over the top job at the Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC) 13 years ago when it was staring into a financial abyss.

Like quitting her job on March 2 to run for governor this November, making her the first transgender gubernatorial candidate in the nation’s history.
