Lake Siog closed

The rain over the weekend washed out many septic systems and as a cause the Small-sign-with-BACTERIA-warning bacteria count performed on lake Siog (often called Holland Pond) was to high. The Board of Health closed the lake “Until Further Notice.” The little sign at the public beach located on Pond-Bridge-Road went unnoticed. At the time I took the picture shown here, four individuals were swimming at the public beach and only realized that the beach was closed when I told them. They immediately came to shore and voiced their concern about the size of the sign.

Happy Birthday to You!

It seems too early to be thinking about fall, but the truth is the days are already getting shorter. Before we know it that crisp smell will fill the air and the leaves will dazzle us again with an amazing color display that is one of New England’s attractions. It is the time when some of us mistakenly assume that someone left the lights on upstairs at the town hall. The empty parking lot seems to indicate that carelessness by the last one to leave the town hall is costing the taxpayer unnecessarily, as nobody seems to be inside. Who ever thinks that way is wrong, very wrong. Someone is actually still inside, someone who is also celebrating a birthday today; find out who it is, read more»
