REOPENED IN OCTOBER, ROUTE 362 in Bliss has once again been deemed safe for travel by the New York State Department of Transportation. The road was closed Friday, Sept. 24 after a series of three accidents on one Friday night involving the abutments and the upper crossing--which damaged the rail bridge itself, making passage unsafe. The bridge has been removed, abutments repaired, and safety signage installed, this narrow, two-lane road with no shoulders has been declared safe by the NYSDOT.

LOCAL GROUP PUSHING FOR opt-in of marijuana dispensaries— To opt in or not to opt in? That is the question that must be answered by Warsaw Village Board members by year end. Trustees have been tasked with making a decision by Dec. 31 as to whether or not to allow adult-use cannabis retail dispensaries or on-site consumption licenses within the municipality. In recent board meetings, some residents, including business owners, have come forward voicing their hesitancy over dispensaries and consumption licenses. However, a new group has been formed promoting the option. Natalie Spink reporting
