Valley Home News for June 6, 2012

Our Valley Home Silent Film devotees enjoyed an afternoon of "old time" movie fun on Sunday afternoon as we watched Ronald (Buster Keaton) do his best to win the love of his college days, Mary, who is being pursued by his competition, her jock boyfriend, Jeff, who takes her hostage in her dormitory room and tries to get her to marry him. Mary manages to contact Ronald by telephone, who, in a sudden show of athleticism, sprints to her Dormitory building, pole vaults into her window, and fights off Jeff by throwing household objects at him. Mary agrees to marry ...

We couldn't ask for a nicer day weather-wise than what we enjoyed on Saturday afternoon when volunteers gathered at the Valley Home Community Park for a tree planting. Bud Ferreila drove his truck carrying a power auger and parked next to our Community Park, then went to work digging a spot for the planting of the Colorado Blue Spruce which is now the official Valley Home Community Christmas Tree. The tree was a gift from Morris Nursery which was donated to the park last December where it quickly became one of the highlights of the Valley Home annual 4-H ...

Valley Home News for March 21, 2012

We always enjoy taking a step back in Valley Home history when winter doldrums seem to arrive in our community. Let's take a giant step back into 1944, serving during World War II in the month of December to be specific, and take glimpse of what some of our young male residents were doing during that time period. We found some of our Valley Home young men involved in the War action, both during the western and European action. Sgt. Paul Wieber, son of Mr. and Mrs. Otto Wieber and a graduate of Oakdale High School had already served ...

What a thrill to see our Valley Home Community almond tree orchards burst out in a gorgeous array of blossoms the past couple of weeks. The almond trees weren't the only beautiful trees flaunting gorgeous blossoms. Ornamental plums, Magnolia trees and flowering shrubs rapidly followed suit adding to the array of color. The sight of all the flowering trees is one of the many things that make living in Valley Home such a great pleasure.

In this week's column we pay tribute to a very special man...our friend Mark Dickens. Mark was a true Valley Home boy who grew up to be one of the kindest and most generous friends a person could wish for. One could write pages and pages trying to describe the effect Mark had on the people of Valley Home, Oakdale, and the many places he visited. He was a special man who made a difference in so many lives. You could meet Mark one time and realize he would forever be your friend. He had a firm, but ...

Valley Home School Math teacher Cory Reid held a very informative meeting regarding the new approach to Mathematics at the sixth grade level. Common Core, as it is known, will be more hands-on and in-depth. Rather than rushing through each lesson in order to meet standards, teachers will be able to slow down a bit in an effort to ensure that each student is learning and understanding the concept. Tests will now be taken online and are reported to be very difficult. Although there are challenges ahead we have high hopes that Common Core will bring positive results. We are ...
