Falmouth is one of only two communities in the state that lacks a filtration system for its drinking water supply, and that’s a concern for local health officials.&nbsp;</em></p><p><em>There’s some money on the way to get a system in place. But it’s not scheduled to go online until January, 2017.

Not that long ago, it was somewhat exotic to see foxes and turkeys around our house. No more. One day earlier this summer, as I was walking out to the garden, I turned the corner of the house, and there – less than 15 feet away – was an adult turkey standing beneath our bird feeder. She was obviously gleaning the seeds that had fallen onto the ground. On seeing me she moved away – “”raced” or “fled” would be too strong a word.
