Knights Ferry lost a neighbor, friend and extremely sharp person when Bill Frias died October 12th. His financial genius helped the Oakdale Rural Fire Department, Knights Ferry School District, Knights Ferry Odd Fellows, OID, and the Knights Ferry Community Church and Knights Ferry Community Club. A celebration of life will be Friday at 10 a.m. at the Living Hope Christian Fellowship in Oakdale, graveside services following at Burwood Cemetery and then a luncheon at the Knights Ferry Community Club. Bill is dancing with Evelyn as I type!

Gary and Sharon Page's grandson Sam Page is the quarterback for the Sonora Wildcats and Sam saved the game against Hilmar with a last minute dive across the goal line for a 2-point conversion that won the game. Way to go Sam!
Orange Blossom Road was the scene of an accident, on the turn by the Shook and Dias homes. Seems a truck hauling two trailers of almonds took the turn too fast and the back trailer overturned, spilling the load of almonds into the ditch. The critters (two- and four-legged) will enjoy the almonds.

Your reporter had a rattlesnake experience! Walking to the back door, a rattler was slithering from the flowerbed to the back door also! Grabbed a shovel and pinned it to the ground just short of the porch and called (more like screamed) for Lee. He cut its head off with the pruning shears. It was about 2 feet long and was very fat! Came from the same place as last year's rattler. I am sewing now, not working in the yard!
Fred and Lisa Dolling have returned from vacationing in Oregon where they visited friends. They went to Eagle Lake where they helped judge the Fourth of July parade. They went to Klamath Lake and did water aerobics and went to a bar-b-que. When they got home they babysat three grandchildren!
