The Vermont Attorney General's Office is warning you about a rental scam on Craig's List. Officials say the scammer posts a rental ad on the website for a property someone else owns, and then breaks in to show it to interested renters. The scammer then takes off with the renter's deposit. It's an old scam but officials are now just seeing it in our area. A police chase in Hinesburg led them to about 70 marijuana plants. This past weekend, police were alerted to a suspicious driver.

Area housing market remains tight
PLAINFIELD – In 1990, when she moved to Vermont from Raleigh, N.C., Amy Lester was surprised at how high the cost of just about everything in New England was. But the high cost of one thing, housing, particularly was a shock. "I was surprised at the rent even back then." Lester said. "I was always paying at least 50 percent of my income on rent." Despite a recent drop in the cost of buying a house, in general the cost of housing in Vermont has only gone up since. And Lester, a Goddard College graduate, guidance counselor at Barre Technical Center and resident of Plainfield, still is renting and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
