Editor's Note: This survey was conducted in April and May of 2017.  Sorry for the delay in posting the results!  I had gone to a few supervisor meetings and brought these results directly to the supervisors but nothing was done about it since.  I also noticed that they already have a PA system in the municipal building.

BARRETT TOWNSHIP — After being closed for nearly a decade, the vines and plants that were once only roadside growth have started to claim the bridge on Old Canadensis Hill Road as their own.

That may not be the case for long, however, as Barrett Township recently received $689k from the state to rebuild the bridge, which has been closed since 2008.

“We need it, we need it in the worst way,” said John Seese, township supervisor and roadmaster. “At least we can have one access to get in and out with heavy equipment, wide loads, all that stuff. That one bridge is going to take care of everything.”

Over the last month or so, with all of this rain, we noticed a bit of mold starting in our basement.  We've always had our dehumidifier running so I didn't think to check it at first, but it turns out that our dehumidifer was running but not working.  The compressor was kicking on but it wasn't actually pulling moisture out of the air.  After buying a new one, I realized that the new one actually got cold, too.  So to do a quick check on your own dehumidifier, you can put your hand in front of the grill and see if you can feel cool/cold coming off it.  (Dehumidifiers are built like air conditioners and refrigerators - they use a compressor and freon gas.)  A better test would be to actually confirm that water is actually accumulating in the tank or coming out of the hose!  

And, if you hook your dehumidifier into some sort of plumbing, you don't have to empty the tank on a regular basis.
