BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - It's sunny -- and that's news in Vermont. So far, it's been the wettest summer on record in the Green Mountain State.
Monday, Governor Peter Shumlin and tourism officials held a news conference to announce the sun was shining. Shumlin is encouraging visitors to come to Vermont. Betsey Bishop of the state Chamber of Commerce says there's a long list of summer festivals in Vermont, celebrating everything from music to local craft beers and barbecue.
