Once a generation Vermonters have come together to assess their values and their hopes for the state's future. First in 1928, then in 1988 and over the next two years, the Vermont Council on Rural Development is leading this generation's conversation. The council is hosting a series of meetings throughout the state to collect people's thoughts on priorities for the state's growth. We continue the dialogue with Paul Costello, the director of the project, and we look back at past efforts with historian Paul Gillies.
Also, eels have disappeared from Lake Champlain. We hear from Burlington Free Press reporter Candace Page about efforts to bring them back.
And, holiday choral music from the group Counterpoint.
