The Tidings was a newspaper published out of Howell in the early 1900s. G.L. Adams, publisher and editor of The Fowlerville Review, would republish many of the articles that would pertain to the Fowlerville/Howell area. There have been other articles regarding the spotting and killing of moccasins and blue racers in this area.When the above article, regarding snakes, caught my eye, I tried to think back if I have heard of any snakes spotted in the area. I have to admit I haven't taken any walks in pastures -- they may well still be there -- so, now I ask, have any of my readers come across large snakes?
