S.10 provides for the extension of municipal water systems to homes whose drinking systems (wells and springs) have been poisoned with the potentially cancer-causing chemical PFOA. While many people know that this happened in Bennington, there are 14 towns in Vermont where PFOA has been found.

n HOPE Volunteers.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Mary Ruth Crawford works about 20 hours a week at HOPE, sorting and pricing books that have been donated to HOPE’s resale thrift store. She’s as committed an employee as they come — except she’s not an employee, she is a volunteer. Last year, over 92,000 books passed through her hands on their way to the retail shelf in HOPE’s store. Revenues from HOPE’s store help fund local poverty relief efforts.
