Storm damage lingers
Sky-Hi Road was once again washed out by all the heavy rains of Tropical Storm Irene and Lee. The town highway crew was out working on it, but on Sept. 6 the Culvert Bridge was still in need of repairs. However, residents can still use Putnam Cross Road which has the bridge built in 1913 still holding up.
