A Vermont CEO is opening up about why she opted to undergo a procedure that she says could have saved her life. WPTZ's Liz Strzepa sat down with Mary Powell of Green Mountain Power to hear her story. What do you think about Mary's decision? Does cancer run in your family? Would you do what Mary did?

A famous fraternity known as the inspiration for the movie "Animal House" could lose all ties to Dartmouth College. WPTZ's Liz Strzepa headed over to the Hanover campus to find out why school officials are calling for the organization to be 'derecognized'. What do you think about the situation? Do you think Alpha Delta should lose its privileges as a recognized student organization?
