While walking by the Davis Center on her way to class Thursday -- UVM freshman Mariel Morel was surprised by what she saw. A Black Lives Matter flag was flying right next to the Vermont state flag and the American flag. ((TC 49:33:17 Title 1736 Mariel Morel/Freshman: "I wasn't really expecting it." 49:34:27)) Morel and her friends talked about the flag -- and its timeliness -- all afternoon. ((TC 49:28:22 Title 1736 Mariel Morel/Freshman: "I just kind of felt emotionally like this was needed." 49:33:06)) This symbol of the Black Lives Matter movement popped up the day after protests in Charlotte, North Carolina turned deadly -- and following police shootings in both Charlotte and Tusla. In light of those events -- the university's student-run governing body decided to fly the flag. Student Government President -- Jason Maulucci -- says "The Student Government Association is sponsoring the flag at this time to show symbolic support for our community when so many are struggling with the violence and search for justice in this country. It is fitting that the flag flies adjacent to the recently engraved benches that pronounce the values of Our Common Ground - Respect, Integrity, Innovation, Openness, Justice, and Responsibility." The association chooses to display flags outside the Davis Center to celebrate and support people at the school. And some students say they're glad they did. ((TC 47:28:23 Title 1735 Meghan Nanan/Junior: "UVM putting the flag up and opening the visibility up on campus just really hits close to home for such a small community of people of color on this campus it really speaks really loudly to all the students around here." 47:41:09)) Others add it's a sign of solidarity for those facing troubled times elsewhere. ((TC 48:40:18 Title 1735 Nishani Kessler/Junior: "even though it's maybe not affecting Vermont specifically, UVM is saying you should care even though its not in our region." 48:49:04)) As for Morel -- she hopes that more people see the flag as a opening door for conversations on race around campus -- even after it comes down.

Back here in Vermont -- Republican gubernatorial candidate Phil Scott is facing accusations of breaking campaign finance rules. The Vermont Democratic Party filed a complaint over television ads -- saying it looks like some footage was coordinated with 'A Stronger Vermont's' camera crew beforehand. Democrats think Scott went to the Republican Governors Association to coordinate the ads -- but his campaign manager denies those claims. The RGA is not commenting on the allegations.

Showers, and possible thunderstorms will slowly move north to south today. Temps will hold steady in the low 60s in the northern areas, but reach the low 70s in our southern areas before the cold front comes through. High pressure will start to build in tonight and clear out the skies, also cooling us down. The weekend will feature lots of sunshine, but it will be very autumn-like with the temperatures. Slow warm-up as we go into next week into mid-week. Still sunshine on Monday, but frontal system may catch up to us on Tue. & Wed. with more showers.
