Shelton St. on Truck Route??

November 15th, 2012 by

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.


Local “Carpet Medics” to Assist Hurricane Sandy Victims on East Coast

November 15th, 2012 by

Carpet Medics owner, Randy Phillips, is traveling to the east coast to assist to the thousands of homeowners whose homes have been damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

Phillips says, “There are still hundreds of thousands of people whose homes are waiting to be repaired, and before that can happen they will have to be dried. The storm surge filled many homes with as much as 4 feet of sea water and although the water has receded the structures are saturated. There are hundreds of restoration contractors like us there but they can barely scratch the surface of the work needed to be done.”

Report from the Legislature

November 13th, 2012 by

Things have been a tad quieter at the legislature the past couple of weeks due in part to campaigns being waged for the General Election. However, budget hearings have still been the main topics of business. You may have read that most of our institutions of higher learning have made their requests for their budgets for 2013-2014. Naturally all want more and more funding. Hopefully each will get their needs met. The same is true for multiple state agencies. (It rather reminds me of a Rolling Stones song. You all know the one – “You don’t always get what you want, but you get what you need.”)
