An Honest Business

Dear Editor,
I want to thank Oakdale Recycle Center for being so honest the other day. I decided to clean up around the ranch as I do two or three times a year.

Knights Ferry News for July 29, 2009

The mountain lion was sighted again, this time Bryce Hobbs, son of Bridgette and Dusty, was walking the dogs on the Rushing Rapids Trail near dusk (south side of the river) when he heard some sound like yelping and the lion stepped onto the trail. Bryce held the dogs and then the lion went into the brush. The Fish and Game were going to look into this, as maybe the sound was young lions or maybe the lion's dinner! Bryce was really scared!
