By Addison Independent



Fawn.png

MONTPELIER — The Vermont Fish &Wildlife Department says deer fawns are being born this time of year and asks that people avoid disturbing or picking them up.

Most deer fawns are born in late May and the first and second weeks of June, according to Vermont deer biologist Nick Fortin.

Fortin says it is best to keep your distance because the fawn’s mother is almost always nearby. When people see a small fawn alone, they often mistakenly assume it is helpless, lost or needing to be rescued.

Farmers support $50M antiturst settlement

By Tom Benton of the St. Albans Messenger



BURLINGTON — More than 30 farmers were in federal court this past Friday to express their views on a proposed $50 million settlement between farmers and Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) and its affiliate Dairy Marketing Services (DMS).

Several Vermont farmers spoke at a hearing to determine the fairness of the proposed settlement. Last year, U.S. District Judge Christina Reiss rejected a proposed settlement after hearing from farmers, sending the two sides back to the drawing board. Farmers in the Northeast filed the class action suit seven years ago.

ST. ALBANS TOWN — If you think rural Vermont and don’t think “technical innovation” — think again.
