Knights Ferry News for September 23, 2009

POSTED September 22, 2009 3:19 p.m.

Congratulations Knights Ferry School Student Council officers for this school year: President, Andie Jones, Vice President, Sophie Jones, Secretary, Meghan Caron and Treasurer, Kaitlin Burke. Have a great year!

*****

Condolences go out to Larry Leach and his family on the death of Gail Leach. There was a very nice memorial service overlooking the river at the River’s Edge on Saturday.

*****

The Knights Ferry School Junior High cleaned the back yard of Ed and Doris LeDonne as part of their community service. They are learning to give to their community and be a part of it.

*****

Congratulations Carla Doshas on your appointment by the Board of Supervisors to the Municipal Advisory Council.

*****

The River’s Edge is open for Monday Night Football, with tailgate food on the menu. Also, it is open Wednesdays and Fridays at 5 p.m. for dinner. They have a nice salad, soup and beans bar and menu items for your dining pleasure.

*****

Happy retirement wishes go out to Angie Wulfow, U. S. Army Corp. Park manager.

*****

KFS Kindergartener Breanna Banks especially likes Ice Cream Day at Knights Ferry School.

*****

The Oakdale Rural Fire Board met in the Ferry last Thursday. The fire department only gets 11 cents on the dollar from property taxes and the State wants to take 8 cents more, leaving the fire department with 3 cents on the dollar! Three firepersons have been let go and brown outs at Station 2 and 3 will be happening starting in October. It looks like a two day a week brown out, but that could change up or down.

*****

As your reporter was taking care of two skunked dogs, I thought the recipe for the de-skunking solution should be printed (again) for others in the same situation. Mix one quart of hydrogen peroxide, 1/3 cup baking soda, and 1 tablespoon liquid dish soap, scrub dog, leave on for a minute or two and then rinse off. Do not apply water first, as water sets the smell. It really works!

*****

Congratulations go out to Sara Harris on receiving her Masters with Honors from the University of Arizona.

*****

Luke Pouncey and his friend Chad Truhett were seen riding their bikes around the town, enjoying the last days of summer.

*****

Elmer and Loretta Raphael celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Congratulations!

*****

Justin Doyle celebrated his birthday with a party at the Ice Cream Parlor and an army scavenger hunt around town.

*****

Lee and Mary Sue Shearer, daughter Patti Sandoval, daughter Victoria Krippner and son-in-law Scott and grandchildren Alex and Claire Krippner went to Stockton to see the PBR Challenger Bull Riding produced by son, Jeff Shearer. This event allows bull riders to advance to the “big times.” Alex Naccarato had some of his bulls there. Seems the bulls were in good form and tossed off many of the riders. One rider made it to next weeks PBR in Ontario, Ca.

*****

Reminder - this Saturday is the Zero Party, doors open at 5:30, potluck dinner starts at 6:15.

*****

Hope you are cleaning your closets and cupboards for the October 4th town yard sale on the tennis court. There are 14 spaces reserved already!

*****

Save the date - October 16th for the 50’s Dance, sponsored by the Knights Ferry Grammar School Foundation. Tickets will be available for the grand prize, a week in a condo for two in Hawaii, plus up to $1,000 in airfare.
