Knights Ferry News for October 7, 2009

POSTED October 6, 2009 3:20 p.m.

At the Knights Ferry Community Club meeting, Sheriff Adam Christianson was the speaker. He gave an update on the budget; 10 million dollars were cut from the budget. They have 600 employees in the department and instead of cutting personnel, the department cut costs. The Sheriff helicopter is parked, too costly to run. Adam himself took a pay reduction. Sheriff Christianson discussed the early release of prisoners, not a great thing for the communities. Also on the agenda was the awarding of a scholarship to an Oakdale High School student, and it was decided to raise the donation to $250. The annual Knights Ferry Pumpkin Roll, to be held on November 1st, was discussed. Saturday at 2:00 p.m. the crafters can set up in the clubhouse. Next meeting, November 5th will also be a pot luck meeting with Birgit Fladager, District Attorney.

The Sixth Graders at KFS went to Outdoor Education Camp. They had a good naturalist and had a hands-on education on Geology and Ecology. They enjoyed the Blind Walk, the night walk and making fire as the Indians did. This is a great program. Teacher Paige Jones enjoyed her first time experience. Before attending camp, the sixth graders learned about the Stone Age, some students ate a Stone Age diet for a week, think roots and berries. Some students made spears and fire, and all played a hunting and gathering game.
