I would like to thank Rep. Amy Sheldon for her vote and strong support for H.35. This water quality bill passed through the House Fish, Wildlife & Water Resources Committee with a resounding 7-2 vote, with Rep. Terenzin (Rutland) and Rep. Willhoit (St. Johnsbury) representing the opposing votes. This bill (pending,we have a long way to go) gives the Agency of Natural Resources and the Agency of Agriculture new powers with reasonable requirements to implement and enforce the clean water laws in the state of Vermont.
When I moved to Vermont years ago I knew I needed to find a way to affordably heat my Leicester home. At the time fuel oil was my only option but just recently I learned of this virtuous combination of having a heat pump and solar panels heat your home.
I love the idea that these two work together to create renewable heating. The affordability of solar heat was enticing but more than anything I wanted a way to reduce my carbon footprint, to help reduce my contribution to climate change. But, my plan hit a snag. My home is too shaded for solar.

MIDDLEBURY — In what might have been the Division II boys’ hockey championship game and not just a quarterfinal, on Wednesday No. 5 U-32 scored two late goals to edge No. 4 Middlebury, 2-1, at the Memorial Sports Center.
The teams entered the game with misleading records. The Raiders, 13-7-1 after the win, went 10-1-1 in their final 12 regular season games, while the 12-7-2 Tigers ended their season with an 11-3-2 record vs. Vermont D-II teams.
