Some Thurmanites are mystified by the appearance of a solitary street light along a back road in Thurman. All of a sudden, a street light appeared on Dartmouth Road in front of a vacant lot - it illuminates automatically at night - and there's not much around.

Activities and events in God's country
The Sugar Loaf Mountain Seniors Club will hold a short meeting and covered dish luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 19, at the Thurman Town Hall. Anyone wishing to join the club please bring a dish to pass. Membership is still $10 per year and anyone age 55 and over will fit right in the group. The club members will soon be discussing trips for the season, so all are welcome to bring their ideas and suggestions. The theme this week will be Valentine's Day.
