years ago, 60 percent of Americans voted in the presidential election. That was the highest turnout since 1968. Even
more Americans are expected to vote next week.
But is excitement over the presidential
campaigns trickling down to local races?
Nina Keck talked with voters, candidates and campaign volunteers in Rutland County and filed this report.
The Senate unanimously approved a bill that makes it
easier for landlords to evict problem tenants.
We examine both sides
of the issue with the bill’s sponsor, Sen. Bill Carris, and with
Vermont Legal Aid Attorney Jack McCullough. Also, UVM has cut funding for its Canadian Studies
Program; we talk with the program’s director, Paul Martin. And, we visit a Middlebury hairdresser who’s been
cutting hair for decades.
