New Canaan -
The West Brook Road is never closed to heavy traffic and, recently, Cumberland Paving has been moving in heavy equipment to Canaan Mountain.
We in this community would like to know when they are going to upgrade both the New Canaan and West Brook Roads.
We feel the West Brook Road needs repaved and sides built up, not just a few potholes fixed here and there as they did last summer. They will be hauling a lot of sand and gravel out of here this summer, breaking it down more. We in this community pay taxes and deserve a decent road to drive on.
On Easter Sunday my son Lyle and wife Betty, Nappan, spent the day with me. The rest of my family called, but stayed home because of the weather.
On Friday, my sister Queenie Adams and husband Harold from Dartmouth visited with me, then they sent the weekend with his sisters, Hilda and Anna, in Southampton. Friends will be sorry to learn that their brother, Jim Adams, New Glasgow, passed away on Saturday, April 11. Deepest sympathy to all the family.
