This seems to be a really popular time of the year for folks to do some serious cleaning, and along with that usually comes some serious trash. If you're like me, you've amassed quite the collection of 'stuff' over the last several months, and it's just taking up space in your garage, basement, closets, or random corners of your house. Now is the time to figure out what can stay and what needs to go. If you live in Newburgh, you might want to start making those decisions sooner rather than later.

A gentleman who goes by Bob Lob Law on Facebook recently posted what was meant to be a nice public service to the other members of the private group, Life in the Burgh...Newburgh, to let them know traffic was backed up on a road in town due to a car that had found its way into a ditch.
