Once a generation Vermonters have come together to assess
their values and their hopes for the state’s future. First in 1928, then in 1988 and over the next two years, the Vermont Council on Rural
Development is leading this generation’s conversation. The council is hosting a
series of meetings throughout the state to collect people’s thoughts on priorities
for the state’s growth. We continue the
dialogue with Paul Costello, the director of the project, and we look back at
past efforts with historian Paul Gillies.
Also, eels have disappeared from Lake Champlain. We hear from Burlington Free Press reporter
Candace Page about efforts to bring them back.
And, holiday choral music from the group Counterpoint.
