The Adams County Record Editor's Notebook Wednesday, December 5, 2012 !i! Page 5 A victim of timing In this issue I is a story I wish I wasn't a part of in any way, but I was. On "Ihursday evening I left home, driving to New Meadows to band practice at 5:30. On the curve at the north end of the long straight stretch of highway at Strawberry, there was a rock about a foot in diameter sitting squarely in the middle of the southbound lane. It was another result of all the rain and saturation of the ground by all the rain. Those who drive to work at the Tamarack sawmill from around Council know all too well how the road banks release rocks onto the highway in the canyon when the ground loosens from water saturation. I wish now that I had stopped and kicked the rock out of the road. My excuse was that there was no good place to pull off, and I worried about stopping and/ or walking in the highway in the dark with the prospect of a truck coming around the corner at any moment. So I pulled out my cell phone and waited for a place where I had a signal. That place turned out (as I knew it would) to be Tamarack. I called 911 and told the operator about the rock and it's location. I hated to imagine what would happen if someone hit that rock. It could have thrown a vehicle right off the road. I figured it was just the right size for a car to ride up over it and go out of control like a skateboard on top of a soccer ball. Probably about the time I was calling 911, my fears came at least partially true when Helen Glidden came driving around the corner where the black rock lay waiting for her on the black pavement in the dark. You can read her account of what happened next in her "Rock Monster" story in this issue. Thank You Parks & Rec Board Meeting First Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm at City Hall.
