Yes, after I put my glasses on Sunday morning I realized we did not get a full 3/4 inch of RAIN, more like 0.60". And then last nite (Tuesday) we had a short but intense rain storm which delivered another 0.60" or so at my place. To say it is wetter than usual is putting it mildly...I am going to have to find someone to replace a culvert under my driveway first chance I get.
Sadly, I have learned of a DRUG BUST in Fall River County on June 16 and the following people are to appear in court on June 30 after having been charged with drug-related crimes: they are Daniel Willis, Leo Herman, Vernon Evans, Tonya Moen, Bruce Lewis, Beth Lolley, Connie Lolley, and Philip Grenole. I am sorry to see names I know in this list but I am glad that law enforcement is making some effort to put a stop to the dealing of drugs which we have observed so frequently in Hot Springs.
The JAIL COMMITTEE met today and visited with architectural engineer Gene Fennell. The motion was made to recommend to the County Commissioners that Fennell be instructed to proceed with site assessment and costs for 24 to 36 bed jail facility to be considered for a location just north of the current jail. The commissioners will act on this recommendation at our July 6th meeting. It appears from the reports of Fennell that it would not be cost effective to rehab the current building.
