Turners Falls -gfld
Any folks on here know of the time line for the repave job. A job that SHOULD have been done before the bridge by the Farren was closed. I took my old dude to an appt. last friday and got hung for over 25 mins. Thank goodness a call to his doctor held his appt. And Gfld wonders why people go north, south or east to shop. At least you can get there and PARK without paying. Thanks, ED

I think the repave job is scheduled for Nov. 4 or 5. Steve Ellis announced it at a recent Selectboard meeting, but he also said that the grinding would happen on 10/22, so he was off on that. He's bee ....

Selectmen
Got a question? How come all the other town committees rotate chairmen every year yet the selectmen don't.? You want to be one but don't want the chair. If you don't think you're qualified to do it , what do you want to be a selectman for? Just asking.

Seeking Reliable Working Used Refrigerator
Hi! Looking for a reliable refrigerator that works well. ASAP!

Need a full-size refrigerator/freezer -- at least 18 cubic feet total. Must have been properly stored -- i.e., NOT sealed shut without electricity. I hope to find one in Montague (any village), Greenfield, Sunderland, or Deerfield, to keep the mover cost reasonable.

THANK YOU FOR ANY LEADS!

Food Stamps
Wow. People that WORKED all their lives and PAID into Medicare got a whopping 1 1/2 % raise. Give away Joe is going to increase food stamps by 25 %. What is wrong with this picture. Got to love the Democrats. Even folks down here in Biden ville are disgusted. Oh well, hopefully only 3 1/2 more years. ED

Soapbox Build Party
Hey all. Are you building a cart for the September 19th Soapbox Races (and if not, why not!?!) and need some help or advice? Well, ponder no more…

Come to a soapbox cart build party at Nova Motocycles on 2nd Street in Turners this Saturday morning at 10:00. There will be some extra bike parts and small lumber on hand and “experts” who may be helpful.

You’ll be glad you did.

Rest Peace, John Aubry
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Montague Center resident, and our local mayor, John Aubry. When I lived there he was always around on his bicycle keeping me and others up to date on what was going on in the village, though you never heard it from him. If the basement light was on at the Grange, he would bike over and let me know. If a fire truck went by, he would dismount and salute. He was kind and gentle, a real patriot, and will be missed. I’m glad I knew you, John.

Looking For Bike Parts
Hey all. The Montague Soapbox Race is back on this coming September, and my buddy Ben Goldsher is entering a cart for Hawks & Reed. He has enlisted the help of Ben Mailloux of Half Pint Homes to build it, and we’re looking for a used bike. Willing to pay, but a donation would be accepted as well. Any kind of bike will do, though a kids bike with foot brakes would be higher up our wish list.

Also, if any one out there wants to enter a cart, too, or maybe be a sponsor of some kind (the race is a fundraiser for Parks & Rec), you can check out https://MontagueSoapboxRaces.com for more info.

There will also be a race in Greenfield the Sunday before. https://GreenfieldSoapboxRaces.com If you’re building a cart, you may as well race in both.

Or… give us you’re unused kids bike. :-)

For Contractors/carpenters: Garage Available
New homeowners in Montague Center are hoping to remove a garage to open a view from the house. Garage itself is in good condition, and could be reassembled elsewhere or wood/etc from it could be used for other projects. One end is attached to what used to be an outside wall of the house. One corner on that wall has a complicated intersection of the garage roof and gable with the roof of a screen porch. Anyone with the expertise to do it would be welcome to decouple the garage from the house and remove the garage in exchange for taking it for themselves. (If appropriate, the same person could be hired to refinish the newly exposed sections of roof and add several windows.) Text 4136873088

Need Battery-powered Weed Whacker Brush Cutter
Seeking to borrow or rent (at a modest price) a battery-powered weed whacker or brush cutter (hand-held type, not mower style). Needs to come with two batteries, so one can charge while the other is in use. I'll need it for 2 or 3 days.

Also interested in buying one of these used, if in excellent working condition!

Taylor Rental in Greenfield does not rent battery-operated versions of these tools.

Thanks for any leads!

Precinct Voters
I have been a Town Meeting member for over twenty years, and I am up for re-election this year. I thought I had done what was necessary for my name to appear on the ballot, but I guess there was a slip-up somewhere because my name is not there.

You can vote for seven people, and there are six names on the list. Please consider writing me in: Michael Naughton, 11 S Lyman St, Millers Falls. I would be grateful for the opportunity to continue to have a voice in the affairs of the town, and to represent the interests of Precinct 2 and the entire town to the best of my ability.

Thank you very much for your support.
