Congratulations to Nathan Van Ryn and the Academic Decathlon Team at Oakdale High School, they finished 8th in the State of California competition! The OHS district housed the team at the Hyatt in Sacramento while they competed. The team’s goal was to finish in the top 10, something they had done only once before, and they did! Nathan brought home a personal medal, bronze, in Social Science. Yea Team!

Saturday morning dawned with cannon fire, and rain. It cleared some and the battles took place around the Covered Bridge. The Spaghetti dinner that evening, put on by the Knights Ferry Community Club, was a big hit. They fed over 250 people. The tables were decorated in red cloths and the flower bouquets by the Garden Club. It looked very festive. The over 100 raffle prizes drew many ticket holders. Many community members helped to make this evening a success. Thanks to all!

Sunday morning dawned with rain and wind and destruction. The wind was horrible during the night and the Civil War re-enactors pulled up stakes on their tents and left. It rained all Saturday night and Sunday and they canceled Sunday’s show. Larry Hayes said the wind blew his dog kennel away. Cliff Howse had two riverside trees go down, taking the fence, and lost part of the flowering pear in the parking lot. Phil and Lisa Frymire lost their Orange tree. Laura and Dave Simons had their boat cover blow over. The Burroughs on Orange Blossom had a large tree fall on their property. Lawn furniture and garbage cans were blown about. The river is rising. What a storm!
