Radio Free Vermont "It is time for all people of conscience to call upon America to return to her true home of brotherhood and peaceful pursuits. We cannot remain silent as our nation engages in one of history's most cruel and senseless wars. During these days of human travail, we must encourage creative dissenters. We need them because the thunder of their fearless voices will be the only sound stronger than the blasts of bombs and the clamor of war hysteria. Those of us who love peace must organize as effectively as war hawks. As they spread the propaganda of war, we must spread the propaganda of peace. "Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929 - 1968)

On the campaign trail in St. Johnsbury » Gary Ely

Gary Ely

Talking with Gary Ely. The Steele’s and the Ely’s go way back. My dad and uncle grew up with Gary and I grew up with the Ely boys in East St. Johnsbury. Gary would like to see the empty Lydall plant brought back to life with a manufacturing company. He says there are a lot hard working people in the Northeast Kingdom that are ready to work.

I wonder if the farmers were to grow industrial hemp in the Northeast Kingdom could we then make enough products using that the empty Lydall plant to create new jobs? Any feedback on this?
