Over the course of September, 47 refugees from the east African country of Burundi arrived in Burlington, their final stop after years spent in refugee camps. We talk with a Vermont host family and a recent African arrival about the resettlement process and how displaced people from around the world start over in Vermont.

Also, the author of a book on a controversial Cape Cod wind project offers an inside look its implications for wind power in the rest of New England. Plus, the remains of a long-lost World War II veteran are brought home at last to Vergennes.
