Help with home heating costs
HEAP is a federally funded program that issues heating benefits to supplement a household’s annual energy expenses. HEAP also offers an emergency benefit for households in a heat-related emergency. Additionally, HEAP offers heating equipment repair and replacement benefits for homeowners with inoperable heating equipment.
HEAP may help families for electricity, propane, natural gas, wood, oil, kerosene, coal, or any other heating fuel. To reach the Warren County HEAP office, call them at 761-6300 and follow the prompts.
A HEAP clinic is held annually here in Thurman and I will keep you updated on when it is to occur as soon as that information is available.

The apple orchards have had a very good season this year. Apples are large, plentiful, flavorful, crisp and juicy.Make sure you get out to one of them and enjoy the fresh fruit. When you’re there, get a half-bushel extra and can some for homemade apple pie this winter.
Anastacia Montalvo’s kitten Ayvah went missing a little over a week ago. Ayva is long-haired grey kitten with white on her belly and paws. She is four months old and weighs about 6 pounds; she was last seen on Mountain Road. If you or anyone you know has spotted this little beauty, you can reach me at 623-2967 or Anastacia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
