A dead locust tree fell across State Road near the Scottish Bakehouse Tuesday evening, where it blocked traffic until it could be chainsawed and hauled to the shoulder of the road. Fire Chief John Schilling said the incident did not trigger a fire or EMS response. A motorist told The Times that police were on hand to direct traffic around the impediment.
