Around Town 7-17-10

She no doubt was an exception, but I can't believe that there are not others in town now who could take over some of these activities and events.

Some of those who are making accusations and criticizing others should stop trying to be noticed or worry about control, and simply offer to help and lend a helping hand without changing the old traditions.

Why do so many people think their ideas are so much better? Now would be a good time to remember and live by the Golden Rule!

Political uproar new to 'Almost Heaven'

I have received numerous calls and heard many versions of the special town board meeting held June 29, but until the pending resignations of the two top town officials are accepted by the remainder of the board, I will remain silent about all the uproar.

However,many Thurmanites want to know what has happened to our town, known as "Almost Heaven." Remember when things were peaceful and neighbors helped neighbors in stead of bickering and launching personal attacks? Can we ever gain it back?

A mistake was noticed in the July 2 Post-Star write up of the meeting, referring to Ruth Keller as a "town board member." Keller has not been on the board for some time.

Moose roaming the hills here

A big moose has been seen around dusk wandering through some of the grassy fields in the Bowen Hill region.So far as of July 1 it hasn't come in contact with anyone or stayed long enough to visit, so we're not sure if its a male or female.
