I was wrong with the assumption that longtable allowed a separate

%\begin{longtable}{@{\rule[-6.75ex]{0ex}{15ex}}|m{60mm}!{\color{orange}
\vline}m{80mm}|}
\begin{longtable}{|m{.5\textwidth}!{\color{orange}\vline}m{.
675\textwidth}|}\hline
\rowcolor[gray]{.93}
\textbf{Time Period} & \textbf{Research Items} \\\hline
\end{longtable}\vspace*{-5.25ex}
\begin{longtable}{@{\rule[-6.75ex]{0ex}{15ex}}|m{.5\textwidth}!
{\color{orange}\vline}m{.675\textwidth}|}
June 2011 -- December 2011    & Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah

\end{longtable}

(I prefer the \hline's at the lines' ends to be able to insert
rectangular regions of text – or to remove them. And also vertically
lined up &'s, when there's more than three or four of them.)
