CORNWALL, VT, June 24, 2013 (Local News) -More than 100 Cornwall residents packed their school cafeteria on Wednesday, June 19, to send a collective message to Vermont Gas Systems: We don't want your proposed pipeline and we are prepared to go to the courts and/or engage in civil disobedience to stop it.

"I will fight you tooth and nail," vowed resident Mary Martin, who, with her husband Randy, owns one of the properties through which a natural gas transmission line would travel on its way from Middlebury to the International Paper (IP) mill in Ticonderoga, N.Y.

"I don't want this for any of us, on any level," she added.
