Suds Turkle is shown in this recent photograph taken after picking up his new glasses from Clear Vision Optical on Main Street. Although not cleared to drive a motor vehicle, The motor department issued Suds a temporary walking permit. “That’s all I need to make it to the Pub,” he said to this reporter. Sud’s walking permit was revoked a month ago when the local authorities determined he was a danger to himself. “Suds and walls kept meeting up,” the Traffic Warden said referring to the many teeth Suds lost in wall collisions. “We will see how things go with his new prescription.” Although many local townspeople claim it was Sud’s fondness for the local distilled spirits that caused the collisions Suds always maintained his ability to “hold his liquor”. Stop by the Northern Line Pub on the south end of the rail yard to give Suds your best wishes. You’ll find him there most days between 2:00 P.M. and 11: 00 P.M.
