Knights Ferry News Week of January 22, 2014

Your reporter was looking out the kitchen window enjoying the morning cup of coffee when something caught my eye in Jim Rotelli's pasture. Thought it was a yellow dog until it turned sideways. It was a mountain lion! It was just ambling along, looking around. The dogs were inside so I put on my slippers but by the time I got outside it was in the berries and gone. I couldn't believe it, just as plain as day walking so close to our place. Now I watch outside every moment I get, knowing that I will not see ...

Pajama clad children, with blankets and pillows, enjoyed movie night in the Ferry. All the children and some of the parents were in their nightclothes. Hot chocolate and candy cane sticks were slurped and licked as the Muppets provided the entertainment. The theater chairs at the clubhouse for the adults were moved to surround the area full of children. It was an enjoyable night. Your reporter and hubby missed it because granddaughter Claire Krippner was in a basketball tournament playoff. Claire scored 4 baskets out of 5 for the second place trophy in the Lutheran League.

At the MAC meeting last Thursday Christie Dowd from the Stanislaus County Planning Department presented the tentative parcel division of the Thompsons. They want to divide 932 acres into 24 forty-acre parcels behind Horseshoe Road. Approximately 750 acres are now planted in almonds. The project proposes access to the property through a publicly maintained 30-foot wide easement off Horseshoe and they need a secondary access, proposed to Rodden Road.

Your reporter went out to the backyard to see what the cat was looking at in the iris clump. As I got closer I heard the rattle then saw the rattlesnake. I shooed the cat away, got the dogs in the house, yelled SNAKE-SNAKE to Lee and grabbed a shovel, all in about 10 seconds! I jumped up in the flowerbed and pinned the snake between the iris rhizomes and the railroad tie. Lee arrived as I severed the snake into three parts! It had three buttons. I wonder if it was the same snake that was out front? Are ...

Knights Ferry School got off to an interesting start - two days without school because of the water main break in town. The pipe was by the new bridge and the Community Service District helped dig up the pipe and replace it. County health officials put a boil your tap water before drinking in place for two days. All the town restaurants had to close until the water passed the health department's tests. By Friday all was back to normal.
