Over the fence
Many flocks of wild turkeys are checking out the Thurman area and seem to like crossing the roadways in front of cars.
All drivers should be alert and also watch for deer as they, too, are beginning to wander out through the snow on these few warmer days in February.
The Extra Helpings Food Program, which provides a nutritious array of foods at a low price, is open to new participants. The price is now $21 for the standard monthly food package, and there are also other food packages to choose from. Stop by the Town Hall for the March menu, or call Norma at 623-9649.
Seeing clearly has its downside
This correspondent received a call recently from Bert Wilde on River Rd. who like me had a cataract operation about the same time as I did. Now it's three weeks into healing, and I have a complaint: I can see the dust and cobwebs in the corners of my house!
Sincere thanks to all those who called here and wished me well during my fast recovery from the cataract operation.
