3rd-8th Grade Girls Basketball Camp
Start 'em Young -- There were 4 baskets in use for this drill at the CHS gym this morning as the skills camp for 3rd-8th graders started under the direction of Coach Kelly Clarke.
Retaining Wall Now Part of "Extended" S-Curve Plan
It wasn't part of the original design but is now part of the plan to hopefully wrap up construction of the widening of Main Street associated with the S-Curve realignment project started years ago. A retaining wall is being built on the south side of Main Street between 14th and 17th Streets due to the severe elevation change into front yards/driveways in that section of the project. The top photo shows the initial blocks being added in front of Reynolds Funeral home which has had to move it's main entry from Main to 15th Street instead. The side photo shows the stepped base for the wall looking east from 16th. -- Ted 6/20/2012
"Old" Library News
Susan Babbit sent me some photos May 23rd from Library's May 19th kickoff event for the summer reading program and they got lost in my news shuffle. Will include just a sample below with the sea lion inflatable. Sorry for the delay. Check with the library for more info on the summer reading program. -- Ted 6/20/2012
