    I just sat on Highway 35 south of town close to Jerry’s cabin for 45 minutes. People were turning around and coming back south telling everyone in line that one of the new bridges has collapse. Has anyone heard this? I had to get on County line Road and come across the center crossing road up to Williamsville to get back to Kosciusko.
