Fact over fiction and Ebola. Stay calm and read on. #btv #vt #ebola
 
How do we receive people in America that have lived in the Ebola outbreak epicenter? This is an important topic that I just wrote about for the Burlington Free Press.

Zyck Baggett and Seanan Denizot both worked in the Liberian capital of Monrovia until the outbreak brought both back to Vermont. They now are experiencing the virus's stigma in the U.S. as well as heartbreak for those still living in the epicenter.

If you have questions or comments, chime in. If you find this article informative, please share.
Zyck Baggett has seen consequences both in Liberia and at home.

Protesters who oppose a natural gas pipeline extension being build by Vermont Gas gain access to Governor Peter Shumlin's office Monday.  A Vermont protest if there ever was one, it was nice to see protesters and police -- both with a job to do -- treat each other kindly. Also glad that all parties agreed that having as much media there as possible to watch was a good thing. #btv #vtpoli  
Opponents of the expansion of a gas pipeline in Vermont walked into the Pavilion Building in Montpelier, got on an elevator, pressed No. 5, and exited the elevator in front of Gov. Peter Shumlin's office, said a Rising Tide a volunteer. KEVIN HURLEY and RYAN MERCER/FREE PRESS
