Bank
their website does not mention it but since tomorrow is the actual Veteran's Day I doubt they are open. I recommend calling first because I could be wrong. Most major banks and the post office will be closed Saturday.

Bank
Does anyone know if Greenfield Savings is open tomorrow. I have to take my old Dude to do some banking. I got back in the area later than usual so we couldn't go today. Thanks, ED

Rest Peace, Sirum
I'm not sure if any of you knew Ed Sirum. He was the General Manager of Sirum Equipment, and the Treasurer of the Millers Falls Rod & Gun Club near Roberto's Pizza on Turners Falls Road, where Mutton & Mead is held each year.

Ed passed away last Monday, March 6th, 2017.

Ed was a good man, a good friend, and I will miss him a lot.

Viewing hours and services are tomorrow morning, Monday, at Kostanski in Turners.

Rest in peace, Ed.

Alert Phone Calls
Morning from D.C. It asked for his 10 digit phone number which means 413-863-xxxx. That's what I put in. I tried quite a few times so it wasn't a one time shot. What I can't figure out is his cell went through. Maybe they don't like his number.. :-) Ed

Alert Phone Calls
Home for the looooooong weekend. I'm at my old dudes place and trying to get his phone added to the code red site. What a JOKE, it says we are putting a 1 or o for the first number . How in God's name is a 4 either of those numbers. Then his address isn't right either. Like I said what a joke. Didn't realize just how dry it is here. Hope the storm gives this area a bunch of rain. Happy week end all... ED.

Crash
Two young people died on Rt 63 Monday night. I haven't been to the crash site, but I'm pretty sure I know where it happened. There's a shallow s-curve where crashes happen frequently. I saw one happen right in front of me a while back. It typically happens to south-bound vehicles, right into a light pole on the east side of the road.

Maybe now someone will look into it and either put up a bunch of DANGEROUS CURVE signs, or cut the trees down, or even straighten out the curve.

What a tragedy.

Poop Water
I'd like to know why the residents in the MC water district are drinking treated pond water from the side of the road when TF district members get nice clean water from the aquifer?

If we are already hooked up to the TF system why can't we just disband the MC district and join them? They have more staff, better equipment and a far more reliable water source.

".... my hunch? -- because they are the most frequent user of the CODE RED system ..."

Yes, Chief Dodge has been sending out messages on the Code Red system since last Thursday; first to alert MC water users to the situation, then to assure the rest of us that we weren't affected -- and to tell those who don't know that the PD can't help them :-) -- and finally (on Saturday) to confirm that the e coli was gone and the water was safe again.

In at least one of the messages, he stressed that he was just passing along an announcement that the MC Water District had asked him to make, and that he and the dispatchers had no additional information.

I second John H's recommendation that if you want to know more, you should contact the MC Water District

Poop Water
Chief Dodge and the Police got involved -- my hunch? -- because they are the most frequent user of the CODE RED system, and because it was their dispatchers who were tied up by phone calls that dealt with Water issues. Here are some more hunches:
The E. coli issue arose in water coming from the Montague Center Fire/Water District, so it does not affect the Turners Falls Fire/Water District. (Neither District is part of Town government, a bit of charming Montague/New England history.) Also, being a Water issue, it is not the Town that flushes the hydrants, but rather the Water District. The one town-level type of oversight is probably by the Board of Health (and my understanding from the last CODE RED call is that the state Dept of Environmental Protection has now approved normal use, so the Town's BOH is probably on-board as well). I suspect the Water District is accountable to the state DEP, and that they are the ones who imposed and later lifted the BOIL order.
Bottom line, send questions directly to the MC Water/Fire District to get answers on cause, effect, corrective action, future plans, etc.

Poop Water
We received the call from Chief Dodge that the water no longer needed to be boiled.

I haven't seen any announcement from the Board of Health lifting the order.

Strangely, our water now has a yellowish tint as if it has been treated with a chemical.

Have any other residents noticed this change? I am wondering if we should let the water run for a short while or if the town needs to flush the hydrants to clear out any residual ecoili. Any thoughts??

Yes, the Police Dept. Facebook page posted yesterday (Saturday) morning that the "boil water" order had been lifted:

"MONTAGUE CENTER BOIL WATER NOTICE HAS BEEN LIFTED:

"PLEASE Do not call the Police Department.

"Gary Dion from the Montague Center Water Dept has asked me to send out the message that the Boil Water Order is no longer in effect. You can go back to normal by drinking the water, etc.

"I will have more information soon.

"Chief"

Video Halloween Montague Common Hall
Hey all! --

Many people took pictures, and a few took video, of the music at the Common Hall on Halloween. We'd love to have a copy of the video or pictures.

If you took pictures or have any tips on who might have, please let me know -- we'd really appreciate it!
