Finally! Following last year's temporary closure of the Knights Ferry post office, the post office was officially granted an annual contract rather than a month to month temporary contract. Postmistress Dolly Haskell made countless phone calls, completed numerous paper packets, performed scores of negotiations, and fulfilled many modern improvements required to keep our post office open.

The community yard sale was the hottest sale in town! The blistering heat didn't scare families from bringing their goods downtown although it did chase many of us away before two!

The first Sunday in town is fast approaching! Breakfast Sunday at the Odd Fellows hall is a monthly tradition for many families. I love seeing the old, the new, the out-of-towners, and the locals enjoying the each other's company across the tables every month. This is a great Sunday to eat breakfast because the community yard sale is on the tennis courts, there will be flu shots available on site, and the Wandering Barista will be parked on Main Street for the morning. Our town is always buzzing with activities for the whole family and that's one thing ...

At the Oakdale Rural Fire Protection Board meeting held in town, the board voted to man the Knights Ferry station full time for the duration of the 2017 fire season. The Fire Chief-recommended decision is positive for our town but it wasn't an easy decision for the board. For quite some time, the Knights Ferry and Valley Home's fire departments have been manned only part time. The change will temporarily close the Valley Home station in order to keep the Knights Ferry station open full time. Dolly Haskell said, "It is important for Valley Home and Knights Ferry ...

Many residents heard shots fired around 11:30 p.m. Sunday before last but very little information was released until late morning the next day. An officer involved shooting in the rafters parking lot had the road coming into Knights Ferry from the highway closed for several hours. The area was full of Sheriff vehicles and investigators gathering evidence for most of the morning.

The Community Club meetings are home to one of my favorite small-town customs, potlucks. Everyone brings a dish to share, some bought and some homemade. This monthly meeting is my favorite meeting in town because it includes some of Knights Ferry's long-established residents who make Jell-O dishes and other homemade dishes. This month's meeting highlighted various activities over the next few months including possible garage sale, flu shots, Jazz Up the Cemetery day, and Love Knights Ferry day. These things are not all organized by the Community Club but it's a group effort! Dolly Haskell is exploring ...

It has been a pleasure to write about the Ferry, covering births, deaths, weddings, birthdays, school activities, MAC meetings, rattlesnakes, mountain lion sightings, Pumpkin Roll and fires. A big controversial coverage was in 1999 when Sierra Conservation Center proposed 9-mile pipeline from the prison to the Stanislaus River just above Knights Ferry. The pipe would carry treated sewage water from the prison. The river intake for Knights Ferry water was just downstream from where they wanted to dump their effluent. Knights Ferry was up in arms and attended many meetings. The prison found another place to dump their water.

With the fire danger so high here are some California Division of Forestry uses of equipment rules: While operating mobile gas powered tools a person must have a 46-inch round point shovel and an appropriate fire extinguisher within 25 feet of them at all times. Any equipment with an internal combustible engine must have a spark arrestor. The fire July 10 on Horseshoe Road was the result of a piece of equipment not having a spark arrestor. A person can be charged and can be held responsible for damage and fire suppression costs if the fire spreads. Since the East ...

This hot weather can stop! The fires have been horrible. Matt and Rossi Glover had property burned, about 90 acres, that was started by dragging chain on a vehicle. The big fire plume in Butte County can be seen from Jeff and Lisa Shearer's ranch in Loma Rica. Numerous small fires in this area have been quickly put out before they get big. Be careful!

Pat Ramont Johnson, Barb Burroughs and Ellen Wearin recently returned from a Christian Women's Retreat held in Bend, Oregon. They took a day trip to Smith Rock, a mini Grand Canyon. They also went to Redmond and Sisters to go antiquing. The lava flow from Black Butte that stretched 17 square miles was awesome. The weather and company was great! They connected with old friends from other retreats. A quick visit with Barb's daughter Megan and her husband Jay in Eugene was a perfect end to a great trip. They can't wait for next year's adventure.

A big round of applause goes out to Dakota Voortman on her act of kindness. She baked cookies and took them down to the river where the family of the boy missing in the river was holding watch. Way to go Dakota!
