Good Bye to the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce

Big Joe was a much loved Burlington jazz/blue saxophonist/singer who passed away in 2005. Big Joe Burrell played in both B.B King’s and Count Basie’s…

Burlington Might Finally See the Southern Connector

The Southern Connector has been a controversial topic for over 40 years. Some say that building it will lead to additional sprawl in Chittenden while only increasing driving time from one end to the other by about 8 minutes.
