These were some of the voices in this week's news:
AIG could sell Stowe Mountain Resort
(Berry) "If in fact they're going to sell it, it will end one of the longest-standing ownership relationships in the industry, if not the longest-standing ownership relationship. If you look at CV Starr, you look at AIG and you look at Hank - the whole all of Stowe has been under one ownership since its inception.''
State Police works to trim budget
(Baker) "They have permission from me to say, `No,' to citizens that we're not going to respond to some of that stuff, if we believe there is no public safety issues involved, because we need to be able to manage our resources, our fuel.
Group works to revitalize economy of Northern Forest region
(Short) ``This is the first time that the four northern forest states have come together to focus on the shared economic challenges and opportunities facing their northern forest communities.''
(Levine) "I mean, they can't give me my arm back, obviously. But they changed my life inalterably and it didn't have to happen because they knew about all the cases ahead of me."
Parents raise concern over Burton snowboard line--
"Because they've made a decision to not think about the well being of all children, why would I want to wear their Burton jacket or their gloves. I'm hoping that parents will be where I am and say we're not going to support Burton if they're not going to support us as parents. "
