Scott Naccarato and Tristan were going to Alex and Jean’s home late Saturday night when they came upon a large mountain lion on Cemetery Road. He sat there for a while then jumped the fence to the Martinelli pasture. Scott said it was very big! Be on the watch!

Aleesha Harden liked putting up the decorations. Madison Page and Julia Nilsson liked making the stuffing. Brendan Finn liked helping the community. Cassy Padilla liked serving the food.

While taking a break from typing this column, your reporter went to the kitchen and a small bird was flying at the window. It was a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet (I had to look it up). It is a tiny olive gray bird with a scarlet crown patch that is usually concealed. When excited, the ruby crown is erected. This bird kept hitting the window and displaying its red head. This was the first time I had ever seen this bird, at least with the red showing. Drove the cat crazy!
