Caring canine at Neshobe DOG+KID.JPG

BRANDON — In a quiet corner of the student support room at the Neshobe Elementary School in Brandon, a boy reads and a dog listens.

It’s Friday, and third-grader William Burt, 9, is carefully reading aloud to Ivan, a two-year-old German shorthaired pointer, and Ivan’s owner, Kristie Adams.

Ivan is a therapy dog, and once a month Adams brings him to Neshobe through a program offered by Caring Canines Therapy, a nonprofit group based in Massachusetts. He is one of three dogs that visit the student support room at Neshobe to do just that: support.

Opinion: Job search marked by frustration

Posted on April 11, 2016 |
By James Rowe



 Why is it so hard to get a good job in Vermont, for that matter a job, any job? Is it just Vermont or is this everywhere in the U.S.? Are local jobs just “word of mouth”? These are some of the questions I have been asking myself for the past couple of years.

Not only are there few jobs available but also it is so stressful, frustrating, humbling process.
