Search and Seizure: Vermont Judge Says State Constitution Provides Protection Even if Federal Doesn’t
I was talking with a friend the other day about her job. She works at City Market and was very excited about a new project they kicked off. City Market in Burlington, Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op and Hunger Mountain Co-op in Montpelier worked out a plan to help support a Vermont dairy business (Monument Farms Dairy processing and bottling plant) by creating their own milk label called “Vermont Co-op Milk”.
This is a great example of businesses (yes, co-ops and farms are businesses) working together to benefit each other. The co-ops with a private label. The Vermont farmer receiving some price stability and a improved profit margin.
Grand Isle – Vermont Libertarian Party State Chair Hardy Machia (may-sha) was elected last weekend as the regional representative to the Libertarian National Committee. Machia was elected at the national convention held in Portland, Oregon, and is representing New England, New York, and New Jersey. Eric Sundwall from Niverville, NY was elected as the alternate regional representative.
