The Scoreboard was scheduled to come out Friday afternoon, but after hours of deliberation, legislative leaders decided to push it off ’til Saturday.

Here are this weeks winners and losers in Vermont news and politics:



Sen. Claire Ayer – The Addison County Democrat seemed on the verge of defeat Tuesday night when she was unable to draw a 16th vote to support her version of “End of Death with Digni-cide Choices” legislation. But the next day, she pulled not one but two rabbits out of her hat and pushed through a compromise on a 17-13 vote. Runner-up winners: Patient Choices Vermont lobbyists Adam Necrason, Amy Shollenberger, Jessica Oski and the rest of their team.
