  • An Iranian-American Vermonter remembers 9/11. Plus, Justice Beth Robinson’s nomination, COVID-19 numbers, and remembering Dexter Randall.
  • Since the coronavirus pandemic hit 19 months ago, restaurants around the state have pivoted, changed hands, or shut down entirely. And in a small town, the loss of places like these can acutely impact the community.
  • A final night at a favorite Northfield restaurant. Plus, COVID cases on the rise, Burlington delays the eviction of an encampment, and, finally, a freeze.
  • More than a year before the next federal election, all three members of Vermont’s congressional delegation have several million dollars at their disposal, but both Sen. Patrick Leahy and Congressman Peter Welch are not raising money at the same pace as they did in previous cycles.
  • Henry looked at federal campaign finance reports, so you don’t have to. Plus, a new housing proposal from the Scott administration, a late freeze, and seaweed.
  • Reassessing public water systems. Plus, another record-breaking day of COVID-19 cases, a new commissioner at Fish and Wildlife, and carbon in Vermont’s forests.
  • Why one longtime employee keeps going back to a store that closed months ago. Plus, extending the motel housing program, drought, and COVID-19 numbers.
  • More than a year and a half into the pandemic, many Vermonters are still seeing healthcare providers virtually. Plus, record COVID cases (again), the border is set to open, and a new town manager in Brattleboro.
  • Veterans gather to read the classics in the Upper Valley. Plus, a 26% increase in COVID cases, the burden on schools, and Gov. Scott continues to push back on a mask mandate.
  • Why do leaves change color, anyway? Plus, a staffing shortage at the state’s largest hospital, a viral disease in deer, and continued cyanobacteria blooms.
