Main Street

Work continues on the Swanson Building with Rusty Martelle and crew busy finishing off the removal. He said soon to be followed by a crew to tighten up the brick work in preparation for a new roof

Mr. Swanson said in a phone message he left me he hopes the work doesn’t inconvenience anyone by taking up paring space or needing to occasionally close the road. I don’t think anyone minds, I haven’t heard any complaints and most of the people I speak with are just happy to see all of the work going on on Main Street from Country Horizons at the old Davies Floral, Gemini Fitness’ rescue of the old Pontiac dealership, George and Gwen in the old village hall – a lot of work going into Main Street; it’s good to see and exciting.  

 

water safety

Many already know, but for those who don’t; this time of the year the Mettowee can surge up by over a foot in VERY short notice after a storm. It doesn’t help that the slate bottom is hard to get a foot on without shoes and next thing you know, you’re bobbing in the water wondering how you’re going to stop. Fortunately for the two girls yesterday there was a happy outcome. Someone was heads up with a cell phone call and the village once again gets to see just how fortunate they are to have first responders on their DPW. Many, Many people on hand in just a short time – it was good to see. The warning that goes with this story bears repeating: be careful in the Mettowee.

Life jackets, never a bad idea on younger swimmers either.
