Meet Nick Morse.

Nick was the sextant, oops, sexton, at the First Congregational Church on South Winooski Avenue in downtown Burlington back in the early 1990s when he planted the peonies - 136 different varieties!


They'll be in blossom for two to three weeks, said Nick.

The "First Congo" makes for quite the contrast to the First United Methodist Church across Buell Street where the church lot is completely flowerless.

Hey, it's a free country.

Inside Track" day here at the ranch. Won't be able to make Gov. Jim Douglas' 1 p.m. presser where he'll pitch his last minute counter-proposal to H. 520, the big Global Warming/Climate Change Bill he vetoed.

The Guv "will announce the composition of a task force charged with launching his Energy Efficiency Investment Program—an innovative public-private partnership that will invest $20 million in energy efficiency efforts over the next 4 years, without raising new taxes or bureaucracies."


Where was any mention of such a Douglas Plan in January, February, March, April or May?
