Vinny and Mitzi Riviello drove all the way up from the New York City to visit his sister, Filomena Riviello, on Garnet Lake Road. Arriving the weekend of June 4 and 5, they had to drive a detour through Johnsburg and see all the washed-out and damaged roads on that end of Thurman. The main way in on Garnet Lake Road was still closed off due to a missing bridge, one of several destroyed in the flooding of May 28.
Doesn't your vehicle have brakes? Could you not have stopped by the evening of June 12 and told my neighbor on South Johnsburg Road that you hit the family pet? The family's cat was killed, and their children were very upset and cried into the night. Doesn't this upset you?
Once again we are reminded to keep our children safe! If you see anyone a party with underage participants, that involves alcoholic beverages or drugs, or you see someone driving inebriated, please call the Tip Line at 761-9800. Or if it's something that can't wait, call 793-2500 and press 1 to get the sheriff's dispatchers. Let's protect all those who don't know how to protect themselves.
