Tioga Construction Co. is expected to return in March to complete the construction of the truss bridge which has a historic look, yet is far stronger than the one it's replacing.

The new bridge will be a great gas saver and convenience to residents of northern Warrensburg who wish to get to Thurman and Thurmanites who seek to get to the elementary school, library and the northern end of the Queen Village.

Squad changeover worries many Thurmanites

Many folks up in Thurman are still very worried about whether the Warrensburg Emergency Squad will be able to respond quickly enough to urgent medical calls in Thurman, because some back-country roads are an hour away from Warrensburg.

One caller this week asked what better expenditure could be made with our tax dollars than to go towards helping out our own community by providing timely aid for those in need.

Why not spend town occupancy tax money towards ambulance services, because for years, so many tourists have been injured mountain climbing, and our own Thurman Emergency Medical Services, which now does not have a contract with the town, has responded to help out.

Another caller said whether Thurmanites have a medical emergency or not, they merely feel better just knowing that the local squad is available.

Others wonder whether the Warrensburg Emergency Squad has enough vehicles, equipment and personnel to handle a call from Thurman if the squad is busy on other calls elsewhere.
