Digging for History

PanAmerican Consultants, Inc. were out digging for history last week. The team of archeologists, affiliated with the University of Buffalo, are investigating the areas in the Town of Newstead where Water District #10 waterlines will be installed. In southern Newstead the team found some prehistoric flakes and arrowheads, but as of Friday, the northern portion had produced little more than road gravel, Crew chief Joe Kline said. Mark Houston, Katie Bigie and Field Director Dustin Keeler sift through a sample of dirt from the roadside on Meahl Rd. Mr. Kline indicted nothing found to date would cause any change in the planned location for water line.

Fire inspection should not require additional charge

I have been quiet for too long now. Today I opened my mail to find a notice of another tax in the Town of Newstead. They are now trying to charge me to do a fire inspection of my business building. I pay property taxes for this already, don’t I? This inspection has always been done for free in the past. Is the Town of Newstead trying to raise money on the backs of business yet again? Or perhaps it is so Mr. Summe can vote himself another $5,000.00 pay raise. Maybe he has in mind to add even more pork to the town payroll, so he can find another friend to employ, as Mr. Giambra seems so expert at doing.
