LETTER: H.S. deCamp thanks Webb voters

Wow, history repeats itself….four years ago I found myself in a similar situation—the election was too close to call. Absentee votes would decide. Four years ago there were 186 absentee ballots and I took 118 of them, but not enough to beat Ted Riehle’s lead.  Registered voters in 2011 were 2,058.

During the last couple of years I have been sought out, encouraged and begged to run for supervisor again. I heard your requests and acted on them.  Continue reading

Card of thanks

The Young at Heart seniors would like to thank the town officials and all the people involved in obtaining and installing the beautiful, very much needed new carpet in the Senior Room at the Inlet Town Hall.

Nick Rose of CAP-21 got the necessary grant, implemented with donations from many organizations and individuals.

The workers who removed everything from the room were quiet, efficient, and considerate of making as little disruption as possible, allowing us to continue our activities as long as possible.

The new flooring was laid in record time and everything replaced in excellent order.

We all appreciate the combined effort that made such a wonderful and necessary improvement to our room.

Young at Heart Seniors, Inlet
