Well, such a springtime in the Rockies can be spring-like. “When it’s springtime in the Rockies, there’ll be six feet of snow or it’ll be 40 below.”  We do take spring a day at a time in this part of the world, where Ma Nature gives us a spring day here and there. We’ve had more than a few nice...
I’m not talking about high school seniors either, although we do have several of those in our village this year. Gauge Johnson, Tyler Beshoner, and Macy Badger are all – or were – seniors at Monticello High this year.   The guys finished their school requirements by the end of the winter quarter...
 And you know I am not talking about tile squares either.  Nope, it’s the TP. No more large, fluffy luxurious wades of whiteness with which to do the job. Now I’m trying to judge the minimum for completing the task.   I’m also still trying to figure out a lot of things in the current, unprecedented...
I often tout the greatness of our community of Sierra La Sal. Also, I think I mention from time to time that “it takes a village...” in this case, not only to raise a boy, but evidently to help a young man complete his Eagle Scout project.  If you drive into La Sal from the west, you will now...

NORTHERN NEWSby Maxine Deeter Our local volunteer fire folks were called to the Mountain Shadows Subdivision, aka Hangdog, late last Saturday night.  As often happens, someone was burning debris in the area to protect property and structures against fire when this control burn got out...
by Maxine Deeter Two-year-old Adonijah Foster passed away Saturday at his home in Hatch Rock on Hatch Point due to an accidental fire that started in his bedroom while he was sleeping.  Adonijah was burned and inhaled too much smoke to continue breathing.  His mother and sister were...
NORTHERN NEWSby Maxine Deeter Christmas and New Year’s have come and gone.  It’s on to a new year.  Hopefully, for most the holiday season was a good one.  La Sal received a surprising White Christmas.  Although, returning home from the “north”, we noticed that the heaviest depth of...
