An Unusual Site

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Wednesday afternoon, a Taxi from Hot Springs was delivering a fare to the Calhoun Street area.

That may not be a news item, but the bright yellow paint sure drew attention.

Monticello hasn’t had a taxi service in several years, but that might be a good business venture, for someone to consider.

Shelton St. on Truck Route??

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

Remember the old “one of these things doesn’t belong here” line from Sesame Street?

That seems to be the case, as a loaded log truck was photographed turning from East Shelton St. onto S. Main, recently.

Cherry Street is open to log trucks.  Old Dermott is not.  Shelton  St. appears to fall into that “undecided” category.
