Re: “Trouble Bruin: Vermonters Are Reporting More Problems With Bears

The timing of this article comes at a time when the Fish and Wildlife will be considering a request to allow the hunting of Black Bears in the Spring of the year by placing bait and shooting them as they feed. Baits are typically stale baked goods, waste fats or other human food that is deemed unsaleable. It is unfathomable that the Department would even consider a proposal that is so counter productive to the message they have been sending the public for such a long time. As a long time hunter, baiting an animal in order to shoot it ranks right up there with poaching, road hunting and deer jacking. To keep wild bears wild we need to minimize access to human food not be dumping a pickup load of donuts in woods.

Re: “Power Grab: Contracts Could Seal the Fate of Underwater Transmission Lines

The amount of money needed just to build these completely unwanted long distance transmission disasters could easily pay, likely ten times over, for rooftop solar arrays on warehouses, shopping centers, schools, offices and parking lots, at the source of demand. Thereafter producing free, clean power without transmission lines traversing several states. But that doesn't put the cash in the right pockets, does it.?

Re: “Bid to Host Visitors in Remote Adirondacks Forest Draws Fire

I see this as an opportunity for some rich people to get a catered meal and entertainment in a "rustic" setting. And I would love to see how 36 people every weekend are going to fill the coffers of the towns in the area. The whole glamping plan seems like a con for the taxpayers of New York State. The State Constitution is clear about what the Adirondack Park is supposed to be. This is just going back to the 1900 way of thinking and starting the whole process over.

Re: “Three and a Half Feet Under: Cemeteries Are Wary of Green Burials

Thank you for taking your time to share such important information with your readers. I am happy to let you know that Vermont has a cemetery allowing green burials:

Meetinghouse Hill Cemetery
430 Orchard Street
Brattleboro, VT 05301
802-257-0712

It is a hybrid cemetery which means there are traditional burial graves yet the cemetery will allow a burial without an outer burial container.

I love your stories, Terri.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth Fournier
