HEAP is distributed on a first-come first-served basis, so if you are in need of assistance, call their office at 761-6300 as soon as possible. Also, please remember to plug in your heat tape, install faucet insulation, or keep those faucets dripping to prevent costly broken water lines.
Over the fence
Warren County Public Health will again be holding rabies clinics in 2014, and they begin in late February. Check back here in a later issue for dates, locations and times. For details, call the agency at 761-6580.
The Thurman transfer station hours are: noon to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays, and 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Purchase the required trash bags from Monday through Friday or at the transfer station. Packs of ten 33-gallon bags are $20 and packages of ten 15-gallon bags are $10. Additionally, the landfill accepts some items for an additional fee: box springs, mattresses and couches for $4 apiece. Non-processable pick-up truckloads are charged $8, passenger tires are $2 each, truck tires $5 each. Metals and recyclables are accepted free of charge.
Those who need curbside removal of their trash can call Jim Desourdy, who picks up weekly for a fee of $5. To contact him, call 623-4524.
Please remember to clip those box tops, save those Labels for Education as well as Campbell’s soup labels. Once redeemed, they mean cash for our school. There are several local drop-boxes — in Warrensburg at Direct Deposit Redemption Center, Richards Library on Library Avenue, and the lobby of Warrensburg Elementary School on James St., and in Thurman at the town hall.
Events & activities in the hills
Valentine’s for Vets is scheduled for Feb. 8 from 1 – 3 p.m. at the Thurman town hall with refreshments to follow. Last year there was a paltry showing at best — Let’s all come together for this year’s event and show our Veterans how much they mean to us all year long.
