Lowell Point Road Rock Roulette

At times the debris blocks the road, requiring heavy equipment to remove it. The question is not, “How safe is Lowell Point Road?” but “When is someone going to get hurt?” The borough and city need to address this serious issue ASAP. Locals and unsuspecting visitors should not have to play Rock Roulette […]

Deep Gratitude for Our Seward Heroes

9:41 am0 comments

The morning of 3/24 held surprises for some of us.  When I caught  my toe on a frozen chunk of ice and went down with a force of exponential gravity, shattering the femur, on my new hip, I knew instantly I was in big trouble. As I lay there on the side of the road, waiting for the ambulance to arrive, it was comforting to know one of the responders would be Sue Schmidt, a veteran with the Seward Volunteer Ambulance Corp. Sue is a close friend and we knew she’d know what to do.  I had no idea I’d […]
