It feeds poverty. It destroys families. It breaks hearts.

By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — The old Brandon High School got another chance at life late last month when new owners snapped up the 96-year-old building for a paltry $20,000.

Curious local residents outnumbered potential bidders 10 to one as the bidding got under way following a one-hour registration and inspection period of the gutted, three-story brick building.

By Lee J. Kahrs



LEICESTER — They may have to agree to disagree.

The Leicester and Salisbury selectboards held a joint special meeting on June 14 to address concerns of a handful of residents in both towns regarding the annual Vermont Sun Triathlon series. While race organizers said some minor changes may be made to appease the residents, it all comes down to coexistence.

The triathlons, which are run on four Sunday mornings each summer, include a swimming portion in Lake Dunmore, and biking and running legs on Route 53 and other nearby roads.
