Keeseville 6/5

When I first moved to Keeseville, I moved right into the middle of the public water "controversy" and found how heated things could be in a small community. A year and a half later, there are still water grumbles, but I'm happy with things personally, so I stay out of it.

Well, the potential is there for a new controversy with the proposed closure of the Civic Center. I would like to suggest before any sides are drawn up or mud is slung that we keep open communication. I found that every time I called for information about the water situation people talked to me, pleasantly even. Being a simple, good ole boy I like the adage "sugar attracts more flies than vinegar," and while I really don't want any more flies this summer, the point is important: Let's talk people - nicely even!

Speaking of communicating properly, last week I said I would include information about the Spring Fling; well, ten pages from my column, Matt put the information in the same issue (oops, sorry Matt!) So to repeat: Spring Fling Saturday, June 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Gerald B. Edwards Center, call Melissa Newell for more information: 546-3381 ext. 50.

I had a pleasant conversation with Mary Anne Goff, director of the library. The Library Sale will be Friday, June 11, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, the 12th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Monday June 14 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. They are still welcoming donations, but please no textbooks, magazines, Readers Digest condensed books or damaged books. As someone obsessed with books I can tell you that last year's sale was great. The library has many events planned for the summer starting in July, including art exhibits, children summer reading/activity program, a garden event as well as changed summer hours. I will provide more information in later columns.

Finally, as a new columnist here, I would like to thank everyone who has spoken to me about this column. Basically, I am writing for the Keeseville community so please let me know what you want here. Thanks!
