Athol-Thurman 11-20-2010

Gripes called in this week were about dogs running loose during open hunting season. There is a leash law in Thurman and those who care about their pets should keep them confined. To reach the town dog warden, call 623-9810.

It became official Nov. 9 the absentee ballots were counted and Evelyn Wood was sworn in as the new Supervisor. It was a very close race with Thomas Birdsall behind by only 17 votes. Both candidates ran a good clean race with no mouthy sayings as we heard on television. Congratulations to both.
