BRANDON — An alert was sent out to parents and students on March 29 from the Facebook page of the Brandon Police Department. The alert told about someone trying to lure students into sending nude photos over the social media app Snapchat.

Posted on April 8, 2019 |
By Christopher Ross



NEW HAVEN — New Haven is having a hard time hanging on to zoning administrators lately. Three have resigned in the last two years.

The 25-hour-a-week position comes with no benefits, but the New Haven Planning Commission has asked the selectboard to change that, hoping that more robust compensation will lead to less turnover.

Movie review: Gloria Bell

Posted on April 8, 2019 |
By Joan Ellis



Gloria Bell.jpg

Gloria Bell— Running Time: 1:42 — Rating: R

“Gloria Bell” is a provocative movie that is likely to stir women and bore men. For women it is a trigger to think about what it felt like after their last child had grown and left home — a time of new freedom that can carry great sadness for those who had been completely absorbed by roles they loved. As they stand newly free in their 50s, they face the challenge of figuring out their next life. They are standing in a chasm that is free of duty and empty of the love they had known.

Pet of the week: Juju

Posted on April 8, 2019 |
By Sarah Pope



pet of week Juju CMYK.jpg

So.

My name is Juju.

Aside from being a green-eyed contortionist, I bring lots of happiness and power purring to my home … and a lot of corpses. My younger days began as a barn kitten, so I learned a lot about hunting from my brothers and sisters. My person chose me because of the little tufts on my ears, like a bobcat’s. I look like a Maine Coon Cat, and there probably is some of that in the mix somewhere.
