The Affordable Heat Act

State Representative Becca White of Hartford supports the bill. It would set a Clean Heat Standard to cut greenhouse gas emissions from the heating sector. White faces off against blogger Rob Roper who opposes the legislation. "The bill does not require anything of individual folks," says White. "If you're a Vermonter and you adore propane or fuel oil, there's no mandate you switch." From GNAT-TV in Sunderland, VT.

Whither VT dairy farms?

Ten years ago, VT had 973 dairy farms. Today there are fewer than 570. "Organic dairy [faces] incredible challenges in Vermont... There's $100 million of aid that's available. It's desperately needed as a safety net to keep these folks going," said VT Sen. Welch at a recent Agriculture Committee hearing."I don't know that [these farmers] have that much time. The clock is ticking for these folks."

A kid's-eye view growing up in VT

What was it like to grow up in White River in the 1950s? David Briggs tells all in this Hartford Historical Society lecture "The Hood, the Hill, and the Hole" from 2018. "It was a happy time," says Briggs. He shares memories of the Blizzard of 1956, the Gully, and how he put a doll in a baby carriage and pranked his neighbor, telling her it was his newborn sister.
