I submitted a menu to the Localvore Thanksgiving challenge and was notified by Glenn Fay of that I was one of the winners! It was pretty neat to try to put together a menu that consists of local items. Our garden celery, onions, garlic, hubbard squash, tomatillos and of course our honey were the base of the menu with the turkey coming from Stonewood Farms in Orwell, VT and cranberries from the Vermont Cranberry Company in Fairfield, VT. Most of the rest came from other local farms courtesy of the Rutland Co-op.


The lawsuits alleging product liability claims as to both Yasmin and Yaz from all over the country have been consolidated. On October 1st, the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation entered an order consolidating all the lawsuits into one case in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois.

This will make the management of the various lawsuits easier and more streamlined, since one court will be overseeing all aspects of the discovery and if necessary, the trial. Here is the link to the minutes of the initial conference.

Little else has been said in the news as of late. It will be interesting to see how things progress in the weeks to come. Another status conference is scheduled for December 17th.
