Williams receives new ladder truck By Andrea Moore

It was an exciting day for the crew down at the Williams Fire Department February 19, when their new ladder truck finally arrived after months of waiting. “We’re like a bunch of kids at a candy store,” laughed Fire Chief Jeff Gilbert. While exciting and new, this engine will make doing their job just a little easier... and safer. “It’s going to be a real asset to the west side,” said Gilbert. Already, heavy training is underway, and they are continuing to outfit the truck with all needed tools and supplies. Personal touches on the truck include the saying “Professionally staffed by volunteers.” This was a way for Gilbert to recognize all the hard work, dedication and the sacrifices his volunteers make, to ensure the safety of others. The new addition to the department will help keep the firefighters safer as they battle blazes on the newer, light weight homes where the roofs aren’t as solid as in the past and also for buildings up to 4 stories high. As Williams continues to grow, so will the demand on the WFD, now they will be able to meet more of the needs of the community.

Brews & Brats Cont. “Customer service and quality products keep my patrons coming back,” Carolee says. She and her right hand gal Sue Shultz, welcome every customer with a cheery hello or sometimes a “Good morning, Sunshine.” Welcoming the guest is pretty standard in the food and beverage business, but the customer gets an optimistic and sincere send off, as well. “I know I look on the bright side of each day, and I want my customers sent off with that same attitude,” Carolee says. The key is to make it sincere, and Carolee has just that sound in her voice that makes the day. But don’t think this show is over with breakfast. About mid-morning they start to shift gears toward lunchtime preparation. Did I tell you that this is a multi-purpose establishment also offering a great luncheon fare, starting with soup, salad, and a number of different brats? Whether bratwurst, sausage, wiener, frankfurter, or hot dog, this quality meat on a bun keeps them coming back. The fries and onion rings are great and with over a dozen different styles of mustards, you may always try something new. Just load up your brat with all the fixin’s from the salad bar and enjoy. And remember to save room for one of those fantastic coffee extravaganzas. Stop by for something really special, and just say gooday!
