BRATTLEBORO >> While there may not be consensus on how to fund public education in Vermont, there is widespread agreement on one issue: Education taxes are too high, causing financial strain among property owners statewide.

That's the basic idea behind a new House bill that would impose "a moratorium on legislation increasing education property tax rates." And it's no surprise that six Windham County representatives are among a large group of lawmakers whose names were listed as supporters when the bill was introduced Thursday.

Another eagle finds a home on Hogback

MARLBORO >> The Southern Vermont Natural History Museum is welcoming a new bald eagle to its animal family on Hogback Mountain.

This will be the museum's second eagle. After the first eagle arrived in May 2013, an event to name the bird was organized.

"We thought it was worthwhile doing the same with this guy," said Assistant Museum Director Michael Clough.

BRATTLEBORO >> The Selectboard is going to wait a little longer before making some big decisions about the future of Brattleboro.

The board faced a packed agenda at its Jan. 20 meeting that included the proposed FY 2016 budget, the future of the police-fire project, whether voters will be asked to weigh in on a 1 percent sales tax and how much of the town's surplus fund will be used to help defray next year's tax increase.

Castles made of ice at Stratton Mountain

STRATTON >> Anyone can build sand castles.

But, castles made of ice? That's a different story.

"We need consistent water," said Ice Castles lead artisan Cory Livingood, standing at Sun Bowl at Stratton Mountain in front of his creation. "I got here at the end of October and started putting up the sprinkler system. We hand placed ice around the sprinklers and ice accumulates on them from the sprinklers."
