New Hampshire Red hen

New Hampshire designates official poultry

Hmmm…we think this is cool (yay, Canaan kids!)…but also maybe slightly embarrassing? (It was picked up by a site in San Francisco!) But, in any case, now you know.

With birds named 'Peachy' and 'Rusty' looking on, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill bestowing top honors on the New Hampshire Red, touted by supporters for its hardiness, intelligence and other qualities they said match the state's residents. Students from Canaan Elementary School who proposed the legislation joined Sununu for the signing.

The problem with Vermont’s bright idea

cnn.com

Well, at least Vermont's plan to pay people to move there is getting CNN's attention.

This opinion piece makes some compelling points & includes a lot of interesting Vermont stats.

If Vermont really wants to boost its economy -- while attracting young professionals and technology entrepreneurship to the state -- here's a radical idea: It should use the funds it has set aside to line the pockets of mobile American workers and put them instead toward becoming a better destination for immigrants from Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East.

Those ‘Aging Hippies’ Who Moved To Vermont…Where Are They Now?

VPR.net

For the free-thinkers and radicals who moved to Vermont in the 1960s and 1970s, the past may be obscured in a cloud of…wood…smoke. But what does the present look like?

I hope it happens again. You know, I hope some generation, whichever one it is, will take a look at the world the way it is and say, 'We can make it better.'
