I don’t know how people ever got by without power steering. I briefly lost my power steering in my car last week; I was using muscles I didn’t know I had when trying to get the car to turn!
I’m still working on getting the three little kittens used to human touch so they can be adopted. I have petted all three and was able to pick up two of them, but only when they are eating. I gave them (tentative) names: Franny, Alice and Betsy. Franny the tortoiseshell is the smallest and bravest. Alice, the muted tortoiseshell, is the most playful. Betsy the Torbie is the “problem child” as she is the most careful.
The Unity Town office will remain closed on Election Day, November 8th. Elections are held at the Community Center on School Street.
About the position of State Treasurer: I learned last week from the Secretary of State’s office that under state law registered votes for undeclared candidates for county office are not counted. (The deadline to declare it as registered mail was September 9th.) I appreciate all the support and will look for another way.
Special thanks to the children from the Ecology Learning Center. Last week we trimmed back some overgrown bushes and removed some others that were dead in Pond Cemetery. They also picked up trash and fallen limbs.

When I went to the Unity auction house for this week’s auction, I bid (and won) an old Unity Fire Chief helmet for the UFD. They will display it along with some other memorabilia. It had been Alton McCormick’s. The auction house Unity is now accepting consignments. Please contact them via their Facebook page.
