LINCOLN — On March 2, at Springer Mountain, Ga., Alan Kamman took the first step of a 2,185-mile journey.

Kamman completed his  nearly five-month odyssey on July 24, atop Maine’s Mount Katahdin.

Editorial: The tie between 13 million gallons of wastewater, the lake, and statewide elections

Posted on August 25, 2016 |
By Angelo Lynn



Vermonters are at the fleeting confluence of two intersecting trajectories: an upcoming statewide election in November, and the tag end of August with another rash of beach closings on Lake Champlain, sewage spills, and blue-green algae alerts.

Posted on August 25, 2016 |
By John Flowers



Listening to my in-laws talk about Uncle Pete Hansen’s various feats of strength, he might just as well have been Paul Bunyan. For example, there was the true story about Pete lowering my brother-in-law Bill — then his plumbing assistant — down into a well by his ankles. And Bill is a solid 6-foot, 3-inches tall.
