If you see a trolley rolling through town on Saturday Sept. 18, it's not a figment of your imagination, but it is a group of people touring Thurman's historical houses and sites. The excursion is an annual event of the John Thurman Historical Society.

Have you reserved a sale table at the annual Christmas Bazaar to be held Nov. 27? Space is limited so reserve a table or two early by calling 623-9718.

Be on the lookout for a calico cat which has been missing since the end of August from its Garnet Lake Road home. Those with any information on this family pet are urged to call 623-5070.

A gripe was received this past week on why our town seems not to have any law enforcement patrol cars checking our area once in a while. Prior to this gripe, I received many calls on all-terrain vehicles riding on the roadways, and some seen tearing up dirt roads and woodland paths.

Our taxes seen high enough to get police patrol coverage, even if it's driving though town at least once per week!

Up here in Thurman, we are becoming overpopulated with beaver, deer, foxes and coy dogs - or so I'm told. Alert your children to not try to pet any of the wildlife, as rabies is always a concern!
