In Vermont Viewpoint by WDEV Radio

One of the state’s iconic diners has re-opened and we’ll talk to new owner Brian Lewis about his plans for the Parkway Diner in South Burlington. Next, we’ll hear about the reunion planned for hoopsters who played in the leagues and pickup games at the Montpelier Rec Center. After that, we enjoy some children’s literature and meet Fayston’s Sarah Dillard, author of “Blueberry Cake.” Dillard has been nominated for the international Gourmand Award. And then, furniture maker Charlie Shackleton joins us to discuss his creations and his connection to Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton. And we finish the show hearing about Congressman Peter Welch’s recent visit to Eastern Europe.
