April 14, 2011
It is very windy in Longton today. The temp is in the high 70's and looks and feels like a bad storm is coming in later on tonight.
The rural fire truck is out fighting fires again today. The trucks have been out on grass fires every day for a week now. Hat's off to our volunteers, they have been putting alot of hours in.
Air quality is not is wonderful in this area.... seems like everyone is coughing and sneezing, including myself.
The City had a visit from USDA-Rural Development to do a survey on any civil complaints the city might have had, and took data on the number of employees,race and sex. Took all of 5 minutes to answer any questions he had. He was impressed that we still have a grocery store in town. Yeah.... Longton Grocery!
