All this week on Vermont Edition we've examined specific problems that state will comes to terms with in the coming years: Vermont's population is shifting and it's having an impact on our landscape and environmental identity, our economy is creating a divide between urban wealth and the rural poor, our sources of electric power are uncertain and the costs of health care are rising unsustainably.
This time we hear listener concerns about Vermont's future by taking calls, reading e-mails and listening to telephone messages left at VPR. Paul Costello, director of the Council on Rural Development joins Hosts Jane Lindholm and Bob Kinzel to take listener calls and talk about how the state can prepare itself to meet its challenges.
