Good day, Bennington County!

Yes, there's rain in the forecast, but look on the bright side: It might save you a trip to the car wash to get the mud rinsed off. 

While efforts to rescue Southern Vermont College continue, work is proceeding on salvaging its nursing and other academic programming. At the same time, the head of the state college system threw cold water on the idea of Vermont operating a campus like SVC.

Bennington Rescue Squad's paid apprenticeship program is beginning to bear fruit, as two new emergency medical technicians are now part of the squad's ambulance crew schedule.  Max Holt and Samantha Greene were among the first six candidates chosen for the program last fall, and they have now completed initial training.

The town of Bennington has gained a 96-acre nature reserve, accepting the donation from the One World Conservation Center, which is in the process of dissolving its assets. The gift comes at no cost to the town.
