Summer fun at Clifton’s Fourth of July event

Several kids’ events were part of Clifton’s annual Fourth of July celebration July 5-6. The tug of war over the mud pit, above, brought several young boys and girls who were ready to get muddy.

The turtle races gathered a large crowd as dozens of turtles competed to be the fastest. Some youngsters painted their turtles in various colors and designs.

Digging for treasure isn’t for everyone. This little lady preferred scooping water from a mud hole over digging for coins in the sand pit.

ABOVE: A group of kids got the tug of war started on Saturday morning during Clifton’s annual celebration.

LEFT: Youngsters crowded around and on top of the sand pile after the turtle races to dig and search for coins hidden there. Some kids were still searching for treasure nearly an hour later.

Township road in jeopardy

A portion of river bank near 2nd and King Roads is sliding into the creek. The earth slides are now at the edge of the gravel road. The cost to fix the issue is significant.

Sheridan Township board members are faced with a big problem: Earthslides have eroded a river bank near 2nd and King Roads and now threaten a gravel road. The cost to fix the most immediate erosion issue and save the road is more than $100,000; the township’s annual budget is only $47,000.

Washington County Road and Bridge Supervisor Justin Novak told the News that the township’s most affordable option would be to purchase land from the crop field owner on the south side of the road and move the road slightly south. He said the road is a township road, so no county funds are available to help with the issue.

Sheridan Township board clerk Phil Olson said the township board considered applying for some grants to help fund the work needed to stop the earth slides, but all of the grants required the township to pay a minimum of 25 percent of the total cost “and that’s not in our budget,” Olson said.
