New session, same old story on farm bill

Posted on January 16, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



WASHINGTON, D.C. — After reconvening for the new session, lawmakers in Washington, D.C., have found themselves again gridlocked over a new federal farm bill.

When Congress got back to business Jan. 6, some members expressed a belief that a new bill could be sent to President Obama before the Martin Luther King Jr. Day break. But those hopes were dashed as a new bill will not make it out of the 41-member conference committee to the floors of the House and Senate before members head home at the end of this week.

By Morgan True VTDigger.com



WINOOSKI — Small businesses that have not yet enrolled in Vermont Health Connect insurance plans will be able to sign up directly with insurers, state officials announced Tuesday morning.

Shumlin stepping up battle against heroin 'epidemic'

Posted on January 13, 2014 |
By Anne Galloway VTDigger.org



MONTPELIER — In his fourth annual state of the state address this past Wednesday, Gov. Peter Shumlin used his bully pulpit to home in on one topic: the “epidemic” of opiate addiction in Vermont.

It was an unusual strategy. Typically, governors (and as Shumlin has in the past) use the state of the state address to give Vermonters the administration’s vision for the coming year on a variety of perennial topics, such as the economy, education, health care and the environment.

MIDDLEBURY — Repairs to the ceiling in the worship hall at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church on the green in Middlebury are nearing completion.

It was only a month ago on Dec. 5 when Liz Cleveland, coordinator for lectors and intercessors at the church, and St. Stephen’s organist George Matthew were in the building discussing heating when they were interrupted by a loud noise from within the sanctuary: One of the beams supporting the ceiling had fallen.
