Looking back with Scott & Marge Munger of Brandon
BRANDON—The views from the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood in Brandon are spectacular. Just up the hill from downtown, the summit looks out over the Champlain Valley to the west and the Green Mountains to the east. It’s no surprise, then, that local builders were eager to turn the site into a neighborhood of trim single-family homes. Scott and Marge Munger were among those who developed the area, building many of the homes in the enclave. And they still live in the house they built up there 39 years ago. They recently sat with The Reporter at their home to reflect on their lives in Brandon.
Letter to the editor: Proposed budget measures are reckless spending
Brandon taxpayers are being asked to approve a 13.45% town budget increase with a 9.7% increase in taxes, as well as being asked to approve a bond for $500,000 for a town solar array on leased land. Brandon taxpayers will also see a rise in school taxes of approx. $262 per $100,000 of assessed homesite value, with a proposed spending increase for the OVUUSD of 12.7%, a projected Brandon tax increase of 18.3% for a projected enrollment of 1128 students or $24,155.87 per student. In addition, the Brandon Fire District that manages our public water system is looking at purchasing land and putting in a new water reservoir and piping to connect that system to the existing water supply, which may range from $5 mil to $15 million in the future.

Library job is so fun and just what I needed
During my third year in Castleton, I was worried about how I was going to adapt to a small-time job to keep myself afloat. Growing up, I’ve seen how people always get excited about their first job and how much they expect it to be fun or enjoyable, but I never understood it. My reason as to why I never understood it was because I found jobs to be a necessary tool in order to put food on the table and not acquiring the right kind of fun I would like. I saw an opening position in Calvin Coolidge Library for circulation at the front desk and I figured it would be the right place to start.
