Gary and Sharon Page had a fire at their home last Monday. It damaged the upstairs bedroom and bathroom. The chimney was thought to be the cause. Before the fire engines even left, the vans of the fire damage restorers were coming up the driveway, handing out their cards. Glad it happened in the daytime where it was spotted soon.

The Knights Ferry School Board meeting was jam packed with parents at the Thursday meeting. The Board had to limit speakers to three minutes each. Kim McCarthy spoke on being able to pass out fliers for a class for a fee. The Board wanted more time to discuss the matter. On the budget, Pat Pfefferle asked why the $145,000 left over from a grant was put into the general fund for funding retirement pay instead of for the teachers. The Board conducted a self-review and the audience had comments on that subject, need a way for public input. Tasha Sweet and others read 6 of 29 letters written concerning the dropping of test scores, spending, fact finding, treatment of the teachers by the administration, and letting a teacher go and possibly the aides. After the meeting, there was a closed session. Your reporter happened to fall on the way to her car and broke her foot!
*****
Speaking of breaks, Carmen Frymire is getting along nicely after breaking her leg and Cathy Murray is not getting along after breaking her foot, she had to have surgery and a plate put in her foot.
*****
Remember April 29th is the annual Peddler’s Faire at the Army Corp Park. This is always a great event. The vendors have antiques and hand crafted items that you just must have!
