NORTH SMITHFIELD DPW FACILITIES-
STORM CLEANUP

 

Good afternoon,

 

The tree damage from the weekend storm has obviously created a large volume of material that must be disposed of.  Our Department of Public Works is planning to help with that by making a dumpster available at the DPW facility.  The yard is open to receive that material today and tomorrow for anyone who wants to beat the snow that will be hitting us Wednesday and Thursday.  

 

Since the focus of DPW work on Wednesday must be to be ready for the snowstorm, we ask that no such material be brought there on Wednesday or Thursday.  DPW will continue to receive material on Friday and Saturday.  If additional dates seem necessary, we will make an appropriate announcement.

 

Also, though our DPW personnel will not enter any private property to remove trees, or even to collect branches, they are prepared to collect material at the curb line of your home.  You will be making it easy for us to handle your branches if you leave them in long lengths so they can be chipped.  Please contact DPW at 767-2200 extension 348 to make them aware that you have material to pick up.

 

Again, the snowstorm that is forecast for Wednesday into Thursday will force our focus on keeping roads open, so we will appreciate your understanding of the schedule detailed above.  Safety in the DPW yard is paramount.

Kansas finally has a GOP nominee for governor one week after the primary election. Incumbent Governor Jeff Colyer [[ CALL-yer ]] conceded defeat Tuesday night to Secretary of State Kris Kobach [[ co-bock ]] in the Republican primary. Kobach's narrow lead over Colyer grew to more than 300 votes after the counting of provisional ballots across the state.        A report from a two-year grand jury investigation accuses over 300 priests in Pennsylvania of widespread sexual abuse and the church of coverups. Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said it involves six dioceses in Pennsylvania, including Allentown, Eerie, Greensburg, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh and Scranton. More than one-thousand child victims were identified and it is believed there were many more than that.        White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders says she gave incorrect numbers when talking about African American unemployment at a press briefing. She claimed President Trump had created more jobs for African Americans than President Obama did and gave the former president credit for only 195-thousand jobs in that community. Sanders sent a correction tonight admitting it was closer to three million.        A Republican candidate for the state house in Florida is dropping out of the race after lying about her college degree. FLA News Online was the first to report Melissa Howard did not earn a degree as she claimed from Miami University in Ohio. Howard denied the report and posted a photo of herself with a degree. However, Miami University officials confirmed Howard did not graduate and the degree in the photo is not a real one.        Derek Jeter is requiring minor league ball players to learn Spanish. The former New York Yankee is now CEO and part-owner of the Miami Marlins. ESPN says in his new role, Jeter has installed an education program in the minor leagues that teaches English to Latin American players. It also requires English-speaking players and coaches to learn Spanish. Jeter says he himself is enrolled in the Spanish class.
