SOUTH BURLINGTON (AP) - Two men involved in a protest at Vermont Gas in South Burlington have pleaded not guilty to trespassing charges.

A group that opposes a Vermont Gas natural gas pipeline to extend service to Addison and Rutland counties protested outside of the company's headquarters on May 27.
