Huntin’ Season

I think I’ve posted this before, but who’s complaining? Hunting season around here starts around now, when the last of the tourists and summer residents leave.

Only YOU can prevent forest fires

I’m the Forest Fire Warden for my village, the person (in theory at least) that’s in charge of fighting any forest fires. I am trained and certified in that – though the training was a joke, I have little actual firefighting experience, and this village has very little firefighting equipment. But I did work with several others in late August to put out the forest fire that started when a house about a kilometer down the road burned down.
