Affordably priced housing can be hard to come by in Vermont, with one estimate saying the median house price across the state is $206,000.
Two proposals are being debated in Montpelier that include provisions

Also, an extensive study has concluded that the mining operations of the

environment in Florence, Vermont. We talk with Rutland Herald business
reporter Bruce Edwards about the study and the reaction of neighbors who
have long been critics of the Omya’s impact on the area. (Listen)
