Over the fence

A gripe came in concerning the Emergency Medical Services dilemma and town board meeting held on Sunday March 28 to air the issue - because the meeting was not announced in the local newspapers. The caller asked if public meetings are not being published a few days ahead of the actual meeting as they should be, not only by law, but to alert citizens so they can offer their viewpoints and participate in local government.

March went out like lion. Snow fell on March 29 and 30 but it soon melted, high winds and downed trees knocked out power for about four hours on March 29, and our daytime highs stayed in the thirties. But the week before we were spoiled with 60 degrees!

Complaints are coming in on the 2010 census forms not being filled out and sent in, but a few residents did receive forms.

No on has called with a fish story yet. Did anyone go out when the season opened April 1?

Sympathy goes out to the family of Isabelle Knoll who passed away at home last week.
