Brattleboro Reformer, 3 April 2003 [cached]
"It's been a huge job but now I think we are near the finished product," said Eric Achenbach, a teacher at the Brattleboro Union High School Downtown Campus.
For the past three school semesters, Achenbach and dozens of high school students at the Downtown Campus have been working on the Web site.The job has been difficult, Achenbach said, as students and members of the town government have struggled with numerous design layouts and the big question of what to put on it.
During Gallery Walk this Friday, people are encouraged to drop by the Downtown Campus at 145 Main Street to view the Web site and offer suggestions about what sort of information and services they would like to see it offer.
"It's important to get the community involved in this," Achenbach said."Basically, (we're asking), 'what would make this Web site useful to you?'"
Achenbach said Edwards approached him and the students with a head full of ideas about what the site should offer.
As the site develops, Achenbach envisions it offering downloadable copies of town forms and permits, meeting agendas and minutes and town news updates.
With the rotating students each semester at the Downtown Campus, it has been difficult to get the site going, said Achenbach.
Much of the site work is done by the students, who receive grades for their effort.While the experience offers the opportunity for the students to stretch their creative muscles and develop their talent, Achenbach sees another benefit to the project.
"Hopefully this will prove to the community that teenagers can be resources," he said."It shows that teenagers are intelligent, motivated and have artistic skills."
The site will never be completely done, Achenbach joked, just as any other site on the Internet is never completed.
"The whole Internet should have an 'under construction' sign on it," he said.
Achenbach hopes suggestions for the Web site pour in on Friday.He has already heard from a number of people interested in volunteering their services, such as one man who offered to take an aerial photo of the town.
"At the end of this semester we should have a really useful site," he said."At the end of next semester we should have an even more useful site."

Eric Achenbach, 60, of Vernon, is charged with producing a sexually explicit photo of a child, an offense that carries a minimum sentence of 15 years with a maximum of 30 years imprisonment, according to the prosecutor for the case, Barbara Masterson, assistant United States attorney.
Achenbach was charged with possession of child pornography in Windham District Court and underwent several court proceedings in an effort to suppress evidence.
The federal court picked up the case and Achenbach was first arraigned in March with a superseding indictment filed in April, causing him to be arraigned again June 17. He did not appear in court, but a not guilty plea was entered by his attorney,
Achenbach has a long history of teaching in local schools.
According to employment records, Achenbach was hired to teach digital media and computer graphics programming at Brattleboro Union High School in July of 1985. Before that, he worked at Deerfield Valley Elementary School, teaching seventh and eighth grades.
He was placed on administrative leave by the Windham Southeast Supervisory Union shortly after police served a search warrant on his Vernon home on Dec. 12, said Ron Stahley, superintendent of the Windham Southeast Supervisory Union, at the time of Achenbach's initial arrest.
According to court records, Achenbach did not have a criminal record prior to the current allegations.
