Federal regulators have again denied certification to the Vermont
State Hospital.  They say the hospital doesn’t have a good
system for reporting problems and the facility itself has problems like an
improperly installed sink, and automatic door closer.  We look into why the hospital lost
certification, and what it means for the state’s budget and the hospital’s
future.  Our guests include Vermont’s
Mental Health Commissioner Michael Hartman and Representative Anne Donahue. Listen

 

Also, Susan Cooke Kittredge of Shelburne talks about her
late father, BBC commentator Alistair Cooke.  Every week for 58 years,
Cooke’s "Letter From America" was broadcast worldwide on the BBC and
his observations shaped the image many foreign listeners had of this
country.  Kittredge will be speaking Wednesday, April 7, in Montpelier
as part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesday Series. Listen
