Calaveras County Superintendent of Schools, John Brophy will be retiring at the end of this year.
Brophy was Friday’s KVML "Newsmaker of the Day".

Kathy Northington will take over the position after winning last Tuesday’s election. She was the only person running for the position.
Brophy is concerned over the dwindling bare bones budget claiming that he is no longer just trimming fat but rather is now "into amputation".
Even in retirement, Brophy will be continue to remain concerned about the quality of education for local students.
