Report Hoped For on Tonight's Brattleboro School Board Vote

At tonight's Brattleboro Town School Board meeting there may be a vote taken on whether that board will support the Alternative Governance Structure proposal to the State Agency & Board of Education.  (See a letter to the editor in today's Reformer.)  For those of us living in other towns, it feels just a tad inappropriate -- tho it is perfecty permissible -- to attend other towns' meetings.  But it would be great if the result of this vote could be shared on ibrattleboro.  Thanks to whomever could attend the meeting and let us know.


An Extra Special Selectboard Winter Holiday Thing

Time once again for An Extra Special Selectboard Winter Holiday Thing, featuring the sock puppet select board. (This is fictional. All resemblance to actual socks or Selectboard members is merely coincidental.)

This was produced a decade ago, yet remains a timeless tribute to decision-making, scheduling, local government and holiday cheer. And what other town has their own holiday special with puppets?
