I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to state Sen. Jim Brewster for all his hard work and efforts to get Bunola River Road reopened as soon as a permanent power source is secured.

I was told by PennDOT that they were tired of having someone charge the solar-powered signal light every day, and they were tired of spending money to repair Bunola River Road. I asked why we could not have an electric signal light and was told it was too expensive.

(If Bunola Road was permanently closed) the ambulance service and the fire department would have to detour approximately eight miles to reach us. I wonder how many people will die because the ambulance won’t reach them in time to save their life.

I am so happy and thankful that Senator Brewster cared enought about us to take the time to help us.
