By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — A snapshot can tell a short story, but a photo album can weave a longer, more enriching tale.

That is the philosophy behind the Otter Valley Union High School Moosalamoo Center’s concept of narrative report cards versus traditional letter or number grades.

Brandon to consider $2 million budget

Posted on January 28, 2010 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — The Brandon selectboard on Monday approved a proposed $2,018,360 municipal spending plan for 2010-2011 that includes money for a part-time recreation coordinator and a significant increase in economic development funding.

Those funds are available because there are no raises in the proposed budget for town management, including the town manager, the superintendent of public works, and the police chief. One full-time public works employee has also been cut, leaving three full-time workers and the superintendent.

BRANDON — Four-year-old Aiden Decker has seen his share of tragedy. His father, Joey Decker, died of a heroin overdose in 2007. Then, after a heroic act on the part of his maternal grandmother, Aiden escaped death in the icy waters of Lake Dunmore on Jan. 9 when Terry Flynn tossed him onto the ice as her snowmobile was sinking into the lake.

Terry Flynn survived, as did Aiden and, miraculously, his six-year-old cousin Jeremiah Popp.

By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School board last week approved a $10,675,889 spending plan for 2010-2011 to send to voters on Town Meeting Day, but the school’s administrative structure for next year is still unclear.

By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — He said he never thought he’d be a school superintendent, but Otter Valley Union High School Principal Dana Cole-Levesque has accepted an offer from the Rutland South Supervisory Union (RSSU) to take over the helm later this year.

Cole-Levesque, 59, announced his resignation from OV effective in June at the school finance committee meeting last week.

“I’m very fortunate,” he said in an interview Monday. “It certainly is going to be a change, but it is a similarly sized supervisory union.”

By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — No one wants to see a lawsuit, but it’s not out of the question regarding a plan by a Brandon couple to install a solar array on their property in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood.

Six neighborhood property owners attended a pre-hearing conference of the Public Service Board on Dec. 16 at the Brandon Fire Station to air their concerns about the proposed project.

Pupil count falls at OV, budget looks grim

Posted on December 30, 2009 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union School Board must feel like Sisyphus, a mortal in Greek mythology who was cursed to ceaselessly roll a huge boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down, and to repeat this throughout eternity. Such is the effort to fund local schools in the face of state tax increases and unfunded mandates.

The first public meeting on the proposed OV budget for 2010-2011 was held in the school auditorium on Dec. 16. While only about 12 people were in attendance, expect that number to grow in the coming weeks.

OV eyes more than $350k in budget cuts

BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School Board is seeking feedback from Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union-area residents at a budget forum at its Dec. 16 meeting at 7 p.m. in the OV auditorium.

At the OV board’s Dec. 2 budget-building session, board members and administration first learned the full magnitude of the budget impacts they are facing. Since October, they had been working on a plan to cut $350,000 from the current spending plan in an attempt to create a 2010-2011 budget that results in no increase in property tax rates for district towns.
