Beware of the potholes on Brimfield Road.


Driving to Brimfield today, I hit a pot hole and thought that I would lose a wheel.

One pothole is so large and deep that it has the potential to ruin your rims if you have wheels with low profile tires. Be careful..

The pothole I’m talking about is located in the middle of the straight driving towards Brimfield before the last curve to the right before the Brimfield/ Holland line.

Brian, what is it what you accomplished in the last ten years?

Pontoon Boat Parade in Memory of 9-11 Victims.

9-11-Pontoon-Boat-paradeChristine McCooe organized a pontoon boat parade to commemorate the victims of 9-11.
Around 10:45 AM, about eight boat carrying flags and balloons started cruising north towards the causeway.

It is hard to believe that ten years have already passed since that day.
In some way or another, September 11, 2001 changed the lives of all of us.

The dam has been opened in anticipation of the coming storm with perhaps 10 inches of rain. It is recommended that if you have a boat in the lake, that you pull it out at this time. Beginning Thursday afternoon in accordance with the state declaration, we [town officials] are putting into effect emergency management procedures.

Break-in on 246 Stafford Road, Witnesses Sought.

Mr. Frei-
I'm writing in hopes you can post this or some form of it on the blog... today (august 10th) my house @ 246 stafford rd was broken into. Whoever did this had the nerve to kick my front door, steal my Toshiba laptop and an 80lb safe containing some sports collectibles and other personal items. They did this in broad daylight between the time of 10am and 3pm. By all indications just a completely random act. If anyone happened to be driving by and saw something or hears of anyone trying to pawn off a Toshiba laptop. Please contact me or the HPD. Greatly appreciate any help!

Bald Eagle Sighting On Hamilton Reservoir.

It was a beautiful day on the lake, about 11:00 AM, before all the powerboats come out. Bald Eagle spotted looking out over the old public beach area. High up in a well guarded pine tree, he looked out over the lake. Incredible bird!
View is from the water as he was eye balling us as we floated on by.
