Country Road to See Repairs After Sinkhole Snafu

Rockpile Road is finally getting some much-needed attention this week. The rural road's condition has worsened in the five decades since it was last repaved and painted, and after Farmer Grimesby's tractor was swallowed up by what town officials are calling "an unsettlingly deep fissure", room is being made in the budget to see to these pressing problems.

Repairs are expected to begin next month and carry on into the new year. In the meantime, those who would normally use Rockpile Road will have to use the service road that passes through Cruncher Hill, or travel on foot by way of the Old Woodsman's Path.
