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.

The group toured the offices and shops of Naylor and Breen before heading out to a real job site. The excitement and interest was palpable as the students asked questions of industry professionals. They met with project managers and estimators and learned the basics of those jobs and asked some good questions: “How complicated is your job?” and “Do you have fun at work?”
Middlebury lifts boil-water notice after water main repairs
After a long series of water main breaks, everyone in Middlebury who was still under a boil-water notice saw the town lift that advisory on Friday. However, the issue will cost the town well into the mid-six figures. It’s still unclear who tampered with a Middlebury fire hydrant in late...

Letter to the editor: Please vote to support the Brandon Free Public Library’s mission to serve

Every year, Brandon, Leicester, Sudbury, and Goshen vote to approve a town appropriation to support the library’s operating budget. Every year it has passed, with no increase in the funding request for the last 5 or 6 years. To be clear about some details this year:

OV boys ground Eagles in D-II match
BRANDON — There were good reasons to expect a competitive first-round Division II boys’ basketball playoff matchup on Tuesday between host No. 6 Otter Valley and No. 11. Mount Abraham. The 12-8 Otters had dropped five of their past seven games entering the playoffs. Meanwhile, the 8-12 Eagles...
Sarah Says: Goodbye to all that
College promotes the rigidity of the circle of life as well as any nature documentary. Each semester brings in a new crop of eager-eyed first years, pushing the seniors out into “the real world.” Living in Forest Hall as a senior gives me an intimate window into my own obsolescence. At one end of the hall lurk the silent underclassmen while at the other end of the hall Baby Febs splay out into the hallway and make their first friends.
Editorial: Taxpayers get great news
It’s not often any town’s taxpayers get such good news.

That unlikely math came about as Ilsley officials announced they...

Bridge School bids farewell to iconic silo
MIDDLEBURY — For around 70 years, the proud old farm silo standing near the intersection of Route 7 and Exchange Street served as a familiar, friendly beacon to those entering and exiting Middlebury’s northern gateway. The 80-foot-tall granary improbably survived decades of brutal winds, heavy snowfall, cascading rains, and even the seemingly inexorable retreat of the family farm, which divorced the silo from its true raison d’être.
