Central Vermont's Most Popular Weekly Newspaper

Local Towns Recovering

Keeping in mind that tropical storm Irene has made information on the events in our local communities very "fluid" Central Vermont is definitely open for business and the leaves are going to turn really beautiful this year with all the water we have received this summer, so definitely plan on some great and exciting activities here in the very near future. Most of our roads have been repaired but there may be some well marked detours that will get you where you want to go. The Mountain Times website has up to date information on roads and events so be sure and make that website as one of your favorites as you make your plans to visit our area.
