that battered northwestern China has touched the life of a Vermont
woman. Tonja Gilmore has journeyed
to Tibet several times in the past two years, acting as a volunteer medical coordinator.
Today is Earth Day, and an
anniversary of sorts, as the first Earth Day was celebrated 40 years ago. It was also 40 years ago that
Vermonters ventured out into their various communities to pick up trash and Green Up the state.
