WTSA News for your Monday, February 7:

The Vermont Department of Health will not provide new information on Covid 19 until later today. The state decided this week that it will no longer provide updated information on weekends and holidays. There are currently 92 hospitalized in Vermont with Covid symptoms

The Vermont House will consider adding reproductive rights to the state constitution this week. The proposal slated for action on Tuesday would call for implementing the US Supreme Court’s Rowe v. Wade decision at the state level. The measure is expected to be approved by the House and Senate before moving to a statewide vote.

A new law requiring New Hampshire high school students to take a civics exam before graduating has not yet gone into effect, but it could soon be expanded to include college students as well. The Republican-led Senate voted 14 to 10 to make passing the national exam given to new Americans a graduation requirement for public college students. The bill has already passed the House and, if signed by Gov. Chris Sununu, would go into effect in January 2023. Meanwhile, a new law passed last year requires high school students to pass the same test. This law comes into force in July 2023.

The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife seeks to raise awareness of the state’s nongame wildlife fund. Residents can designate a portion of their tax refund by checking a box on their state return. Donations to the Funds helped restore Vermont’s loons, ospreys and peregrine falcons. But more than 100 wild species are still in danger!

A park with a man-made swimming pool has been added to the New Hampshire Register of Historic Places. Vilas Pool Park, built in 1925-26 in Alstead, is considered “both as a well-preserved example of an early 20th century recreation area and for its architecture and landscape architecture”. The pool is formed by a dam that slows the flow of the Rivière Froide. The park also includes a pedestrian bridge, pavilion, boathouse, carillon, stone tables and fireplaces.

Vermont’s spring snow goose hunting season begins next month. The season runs from March 11 to April 23 statewide. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has authorized population reductions of migratory greater and lesser snow geese as well as Ross’s geese each year since 2009 by issuing a conservation order, the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department said. The population of these geese has increased to the point where they are destroying habitat, the ministry said. The daily bag limit for hunters is 15 snow geese. Fall waterfowl regulations will apply, except unplugged shotguns and electronic calls will be permitted and shooting hours will be extended until half an hour after sunset, the department said. .
