Posted on July 24, 2017 |

VERMONT — You can tell a lot about a farm by looking closely at the soil. That’s why the new, statewide program to recognize Vermont’s most environmentally friendly farmers will be based on soil-sampling and monitoring.

Last week Gov. Phil Scott announced the pilot launch of the new Vermont Environmental Stewardship Program (VESP), which will use soil-based analysis to identify farmers who are going above and beyond to protect our natural resources.

Editor's note: This story was updated after its original posting by changing the wording from "does not require any increase in fees and rates" to "does not require any increase in prices."

Whiting residents up in arms after neighbor opens gun range

By Will DiGravio



WHITING — Some residents of the Stickney Road neighborhood in Whiting are fed up with the sound of gunfire coming from one resident’s shooting range, which they and a town official say is being operated illegally as a business.

“There have been occasions where target shooting starts at 6:45 a.m. and other times he shoots until 8:30 p.m. The constant gunfire all day is stressful for many animals in the neighborhood. Our golden retriever Bella shakes uncontrollably and hides in the closet,” said Owen Kant, who lives at 212 Stickney Road.

Our squishy, land-loving, air-breathing bodies just aren’t made for the sea.
