Representatives from Ranger Solar, based in Yarmouth, Maine, with offices in New York, appeared before the Brandon selectboard on Monday to give a project presentation and to answer questions. Those in attendance expressed a wide range of feelings, from enthusiastic to suspicious, with most town officials expressing support.

BRANDON — The Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union has its Act 46 school consolidation committee in place, and if Superintendent Jeanne Collins has her way, there could be a public vote on the issue this March.

The Legislature last spring passed Act 46, which requires all supervisory unions and school districts to assess and decide what school governance structure they want to move to. The choices are:

• Accelerated merger with one-time study grant and tax incentives.

Clippings: Haunting memories of 9-11 beckon

Posted on September 17, 2015 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



Anyone who can’t claim native Vermonter status came here from for a reason. I came here in October 2002 after living through the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City.

I wasn’t in the towers, and I wasn’t downtown, but I was in Manhattan that bluebird morning, stranded for hours trying to get back to my apartment in Brooklyn. After finding a working phone and letting my parents know I was OK, I walked south from midtown. All subway service had stopped. The closest I got to the Twin Towers was 41st Street.

Wesleyan group offers prayers on town green

Prayer on Brandon town green Prayercmyk Stand people_CMYK.jpg

BRANDON — In today’s more secular society, driving through a picturesque small Vermont town and seeing a large, red banner that says simply “Prayer” in the local park might give one pause. They might think some out-of-towners were exercising their freedom of religion, but choose to steer clear. But they would be wrong.

“We’re there to reach out to the community for prayer with people,” said Richard Brosse, a member of the Forest Dale Wesleyan Church in Brandon. “No pressure, just friendly ministry.”

10 years of feral cats in Brandon cmyk Mei&Izzy_RGB.jpg

BRANDON — Mei Mei Brown is a sucker for cats. A lifelong lover of felines, she is also the driving force behind the Brandon Feral Cat Assistance Program, now celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Thanks to Brown’s diligence and love for the animal, what was once a big problem in Brandon is now under control. Over the last decade, 166 feral, or wild, cats have been trapped, spayed or neutered, and released or adopted.

“Yes, I am the crazy cat lady,” Brown joked in an interview last week.

Brandon voters back local option tax

Posted on July 9, 2015 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — On June 30, Brandon voters approved the establishment of a 1 percent local option tax on sales, meals and rooms, and alcohol, subject to the approval of the town charter, which was also approved.

The option tax measure passed by a vote of 328-132, with two ballots blank or spoiled. The charter was approved by a tally of 358-91.

Before a local option tax can be instituted in Vermont, the Legislature has to accept a change to that town’s charter. In the case of Brandon, this is actually its first charter.
