New federal tax law expected to boost Vt. state revenue

Posted on January 15, 2018 |
By Elizabeth Hewitt of VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — State fiscal officials anticipate Vermont tax revenue will increase as a result of the changes made to the federal tax system last month.

While many Vermonters will likely see their federal tax bill go down as a result of the package Congress passed in December, some could see their state tax bill go up.

Outside Story: Beech tree falls victim to a beetle, fungus

Posted on January 15, 2018 |
By Joe Rankin



Outside story.jpg

If you’ve ever seen chevrons on the bark of an American beech, you know you’re looking at a tree that’s been hugged by a black bear. And you’ve likely been impressed with the bear’s climbing ability. And perhaps looked over your shoulder while you were busy being impressed.

But bear-clawed beeches aren’t as common as they once were. The American beech, Fagus grandiflora, has become another member of the North American “trees-devastated-by-imported-pests-and-diseases” club.
