We are officially introducing the new unofficial website for Vernon, http://vernonvermont.org/, created and maintained by Bronna Zlochiver (who also publishes the unofficial town digital newsletter) and myself.
The site will publish news updates about Vernon, town documents such as minutes, warnings and agendas, upcoming events, links to selectboard videos on the BCTV website, a weather forecast, a town directory with phone numbers and email addresses, and links to Vernon town entities, organizations and businesses. It also features a gallery of seasonal photos of Vernon scenes.
In my post, “Yankee, What Next?” I recommended an op-ed by Lissa Weinmann , entitled “Federal legislation key to jobs-creating, swift VY clean-up”
This has been reprinted in Green Energy Times, and can be read here.
“While some celebrate and some lament news of Entergy’s decision to close the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, we all need to work together to assure that decontamination begins immediately in order to preserve and create hundreds of jobs and assure the safe storage of highly radioactive waste that will certainly remain at the site for decades to come.”
