   With fanfare, music and words from both the young and old, area veterans were feted last week Friday at the annual Veterans Day program at Brandon School.

   With dignitaries such as state Sen. Luther Olsen, R-Ripon, state Superintendent of Public Instruction and gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers, county staff, Fox Valley Army ROTC service members — including the Ripon College Red Hawks Company — and numerous veterans, the little school south of Ripon saw a ceremony to match any in the state, as Olsen and Evers told attendees.
