"October and pumpkin time begins! We will look for the fall colors to appear, already the maples are showing lots of red and yellow in the low areas.I know you will take time to enjoy the beauty of our October scene. There's nothing else like it. Dull November will follow soon enough. I know that deer hunters don't call it dull, but it's my least favorite month of the year. Election Day will add some excitement this time around.

And now we have the bright yellow center lines on our County P black top and shoulders and built up with new gravel. All for safer travel, thank you!
