SALMON DECLINE-LAKE CHAMPLAIN
MONTPELIER, Vt. _ Biologists are trying to determine whether a warm, dry fall is responsible for a drop in the number of landlocked Atlantic salmon that swam up a Lake Champlain tributary in Vermont to spawn this fall or if there could be other reasons behind a five-year decline.

NEW ENGLAND POTHOLES: Spring is several months away but pothole season is already here in New England. The boomerang weather in which temperatures plummet and then warm up again is wreaking havoc on roads across the region.
BURLINGTON MALL: Opponents of the CityPlace Burlington project aren’t giving up even though a federal lawsuit has been dismissed. A federal judge ruled last week that the lawsuit against the city of Burlington and developer Don Sinex was without merit.
FIRE RESCUE: Vermont officials are crediting a passing motorist for rescuing an unconscious woman from a burning home in the town of Underhill. Officials say 39-year-old Damien Larose dialed 911 to report the fire on Friday and then began knocking on doors to see if anyone was inside. They say he went inside an unlocked door and found a woman unconscious on the kitchen floor.
