Grey and black haired cat

My friend lives off Mount Olive Rd in Flanders. She has a grey and black cat, with white boots and white fluff on its tail, sitting on her deck. She said the cat seems very friendly and she has fed it for the evening. I'm just trying to help her spread the word. She is going to try to get a picture, and I can post that if/when she passes it along.

Full time kindergarten in Mt. olive

Hello, I'm looking for some information on full time kindergarten options in Mt Olive. Do parents choose aftercare alongside kindergarten if sending kids to public school?

I live in Mansfield and we have full time kindergarten. Just trying to figure this out if I move to Budd Lake this summer.

Thanks!

I was going to go to Turkey Brook Park but it's temporarily closed I guess from winter still.

Does anyone know when they may open it again?

Time to restrict the Budd Lake ‘ice eaters’

They are called “ice eaters,” “ice bubblers” or their more formal name, “ice-retardant systems” but whatever they are called, they are important to keep docks on Budd lake from being damaged by winter ice.

But officials want to make certain that the devices are properly marked so that skaters or ice fishermen don’t wander on to thin ice created near the docks.

Redeveloping near Budd Lake

Someone asked me recently about spending some time near Budd Lake and they were perplexed when I said there is no real area to visit the lake. I then did a search and stumbled on an article talking about developing the land near the old municipal building into a destination.

I'm sure this will take years to go anywhere, but this would be incredible.

Poster Size Paper 24"x36"

Does anyone know some place local that sells large sized poster paper, specifically 24"x36"?

It seems to be a standard poster size, but I can't find anyone that sells it.

Thanks!
