We've seen a number of methamphetamine cases in Vermont lately. The ability to manufacture meth at home is one of the reasons for this rise. So, could someone in your neighborhood be running a meth lab?

U.S. Attorney Tristram Coffin and Spectrum Youth & Family Services' Annie Ramniceanu discuss the lure of this drug, why it's so easy to produce and the threat it may pose to your community.

Also, Vermont is one of only two states that allows felons to vote, even while they're in prison. We hear one man's story of civic participation from behind bars and beyond. Tom Hughes was a banker and an accountant before he was convicted of embezzlement. He now works with WGLY Christian radio and The Church at Prison.

And we sort through our mailbag and read some of your comments.
