Spring has arrived in Stiles

The temperatures have been on the rise lately.

We may safely be able to say that spring has finally sprung in Stiles!

As a result of the milder temperatures, the Ironton Rail Trail has been seeing a lot of pedestrian and bike traffic. Hopefully, the harsh cold and windy days of winter are behind us.

Whatever you decide to do in the more seasonal spring weather, enjoy yourself.

April 15 is tax day and its just around the corner.

If you still have work to do on your taxes, there is time left. However, you should get started soon.
