BRANDON — In a rare move and after a marathon executive session that saw midnight come and go, the boards of the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union and the Brandon School District voted in the early hours of June 18 to impose a contract with paraprofessionals and bus drivers after negotiations failed.

The boards and the National Education Association-Vermont Paraprofessional and Bus Unit have been negotiating the contract for 18 months. The sticking point has been salary increase percentages and health care contributions.

MIDDLEBURY — Despite having produced nearly 70 years worth of work, Brandon artist Warren Kimble’s favorite piece of art has never been seen by the general public. That’s because he hasn’t made it yet.

In Kimble’s words, his favorite artwork is “the next one. Because when what you’ve done is finished, it’s done. So the excitement for me, as an artist, is the next thing. The excitement of the next thing. I’m already thinking about it.”

BRANDON — Otter Valley Union High School just said “no” to bullying.

A controversial smartphone application used by students to bully others that was taken down in Rutland High School last December appeared at OV last week and met the same fate.

OV Principal Jim Avery said on Saturday that the presence of the After School app was brought to his attention on Monday, June 1, when two students met him that morning and told him about it. By Thursday, the entire school had mobilized against the app, its users and their bullying tactics.

John McKernon, Jr. Picture.jpg

BRANDON — When most people die they leave a house and get a headstone to mark themselves in remembrance. Jack McKernon left hundreds of buildings all over Vermont: farmhouses, carriage houses, camps and barns, all meticulously redeemed to their former glory, or better.

McKernon died at his home in Rochester on May 28 at the age of 78. A man with a deep love for New England architecture and the finer things in life, McKernon changed the way Brandon looked, for the better as well.

They follow the American Legion Color Guard and the Otter Valley and Neshobe School marching bands, and are joined by the Pittsford and Brandon fire department engines. The small parade with a purpose makes its way to the gazebo in Central Park.
