Music in the air at Brandon outdoor concerts

Posted on July 13, 2017 |
By Emma Cotton



DSC_0402.jpg

It’s a Wednesday night in Brandon, and 150 people have gathered on the big lawn behind the Brandon Inn. Children dart and cartwheel from one grassy spot to the next, some holding bags of popcorn they picked up for free from a nearby popcorn machine.

The early-evening sun is out, birds fly overhead and the Neshobe River, high from recent-but-long-forgotten downpours, rushes past. In the lawn’s center, an Irish band called Extra Stout entertains the crowd with jigs, sing-alongs and some mean fiddling. Everyone seems to be having a very good time.

Lyme disease cases surge this time of year; local mom spreads awareness

Posted on June 22, 2017 |
By Lee J. Kahrs



BRANDON/MONTPELIER — While May is officially Lyme Awareness Month, it might as well be renamed Lyme Awareness Summer 2017.

Or better yet, Tick Awareness — March to November.

That’s because with warmer, shorter winters and higher rainfall amounts, black-legged ticks are multiplying and moving north. Vermont has been experiencing a steady increase in the number of Lyme disease cases and in the last few years earned the dubious distinction of having the highest per capita incidence of Lyme disease in the U.S.
