The anniversary of Tropical Storm Irene is just over a week away and
many Vermonters are still awaiting funds to rebuild their homes or farms
and to return their lives to some form of normalcy.
Comstock-Gay of the Vermont Community Foundation and David Coates of the
Vermont Long Term Disaster Recovery Group update us on how much money
has been raised, how money has been distributed and what work is left
to be done.
Also on the program, ultrarunner Nikki Kimball is a Vermont native currently living in Bozeman, Montana. She left North Troy on Monday
in an attempt to break both the male and female records for completing
the Long Trail in just four-and-a-half days. We check in with Kimball to
see how she did and what challenges she faced.
