People from all over the area that seek to recognize a loved one are urged to participate in the Thurman Emergency Squad’s Memory Tree fundraiser.

You can sponsor an bulb or ornament for only $3, and your donation both recognizes someone who’s had special impact in your life, while helping support vital emergency medical services in town provided by our dedicated volunteers.

Send your name and the name of the person(s) to be memorialized along with $3 per bulb to: P.O. Box 114, Athol, NY 12810 or drop off payment and names at the squad building.

Motorists are advised to slow down to avoid skids caused by the virtually invisible “black ice” on the pavement.

With colder weather here, a few drivers have experienced the dangerous condition on our area roads. Black ice was also implicated in the recent fatal crash on Schroon River Road in Chester. Motorists are urged to drive with caution.

Gripes have been called in on the fact that the town will cease its traditional garbage pickup as of Dec. 28. and many are asking what they should do with their recyclables. The answer, of course, is that recyclables should be transported, like household trash, but separately — to the Thurman Transfer Station.

Also, many callers have expressed their concern about the town’s ambulance service. Suggestions have been aired that some of the town’s Occupancy Tax money be used to train an EMT in Advanced Life Support, so our squad can have trained personnel on duty, available to respond to critical medical emergencies. However, Occupancy Tax money, by law, must only be used in ways that support tourism, this source of funding is questionable.
