Count down, sing along, and
dance the night away with live music from parties coast
to coast. Starting in
Boston, you’ll toast the New Year moving west with four celebrations of midnight from
time zone to time zone. Ring it in with salsa, samba and swing!
A fire levels a 19th-century church in Mount Holly; A former home of poet
Robert Frost has been vandalized; New Hampshire’s Civil Unions law goes
into effect at midnight tonight; A difficult year at Vermont Yankee tops
the AP Top Stories list of 2007; A sneak peek at St Johnsbury’s First
Night; and commentator Madeline Kunin remembers Benazir Bhutto.
Every couple of weeks we
check in with reporter Candace Page to see what’s making the environmental news
headlines. Since it is the last day in
2007 we thought we’d ask her to take us through some of the major environmental
stories of the year.
Laura Lind-Blum runs her own coaching
business, The Innovation Wellspring in Waterbury
Center. Lisa Buell runs Create Joy Coaching in Johnson. They spoke with VPR’s Jane Lindholm about keeping
and breaking New Years resolutions.
In almost any year, some of the moving moments come when we pause to reflect on
those who have left the stage during the past few months. And,
as VPR’s Steve Delaney reports, there were some notable departures this year.
As we turn the calendar page to 2008, most of
us will go through the annual ritual of making a New Year’s resolution. Life coaches Laura
Lind-Blum and Lisa Buell join us to walk through the process of making a
resolution, and sticking with it. Also, Burlington Free Press reporter Candace Page discusses
the state’s top news stories of 2007. And, we bring you remembrances of some of the Vermonters who died this year.
