Water, water everywhere, people feel we have had enough. Property owners along the Lake and Bay areas are really dealing with rising water and for some damage. The Essex Ferry is still unable to operate due to high water. It was good to see our Highway Department out doing the spring road side cleanup these past several days. Hope you noticed the bright yellow daffodils in front of the Willsboro United Methodist Church; this is thanks to Pastor McPheeters. The Pastor recently visited some of his family and attended a family wedding.
We are glad to learn that Doris Collins has returned home after a short hospital visit. Nice to see that Larry Lee has returned home after spending some time in Florida with his son Larry. Some pleasant news that I learned this week is that our school superintendent, Steve Broadwell will be staying with us for the upcoming school year, after the scare that he might be moving on. A reminder that the School Budget vote is coming up soon and everyone should have received the information letter in the mail. It is a good budget, and we need to take the time to come out and support their hard work by our vote. Also two seats on the school board are up for vote. Kyle Russell now in the Marines has been home on a leave to be with his family, he will be returning to his base soon.
I recently learned that we should be more careful about leaving our homes, cars and etc. unlocked when we are not home. Possible threats are lurking here in the community and they really love unlocked doors, and owners not home to walk in and take what they desire.
Hope you enjoyed the TV coverage of the Royal Wedding; they seemed to have covered every angle, also sad to see the coverage of all the storm struck communities.
