Knights Ferry News July 30, 2014

POSTED July 30, 2014 11:59 a.m.

When your reporter started writing the Knights Ferry News in August of 1999, it had to be typed (on a typewriter) on 8 by 6 inch newsprint supplied by the Leader and put through the mail slot on Sunday evenings. Now it is all computerized and so much easier!


Diane Boyer was the recipient of the “Birthday Song” at the 50’s roadhouse last Wednesday.


The lines have been painted on the newly slurried streets in the Ferry and look so nice and clean.


With August around the corner here are some dates for your calendar: Sunday, August 3rd, is Breakfast Sunday at the I.O.O.F. Hall from 8:00 a.m. until noon. The museum will be open also. August 7th is the Knights Ferry Community Club meeting. It will be a dessert meeting at 7:00 p.m. at the clubhouse. August 12 is the meeting of the History and Museum Associates at 9:00 a.m. in Millers Hall. August 14 Knights Ferry School starts. If you have a child that is not enrolled call the school at 881-3382 after August 3. Also that night is the Knights Ferry School Board meeting at 5:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. August 28 is the MAC meeting at 7:00 p.m. in the clubhouse.


Lee Shearer went into the hospital for an angiogram because he was having trouble breathing and had no energy so decided to get his heart checked. His heart was fine, his bypasses looked good BUT he had a hemorrhagic stroke (brain bleed) because of the angiogram. It affected his vision and he cannot read. Plus he was very anemic, that was the cause of his symptoms. Now they will be looking for internal bleeding in two weeks. He is home and trying to find something to do, as he loved to read. Thanks to all who were concerned, especially Leslie who smuggled bacon to Lee. Hopefully the bleed will be absorbed and his eyesight will get better. Granddaughter Claire Krippner was visiting as her parents were on vacation and had to spend her time in the hospital. We had lots of activities to keep her occupied and she did not complain.
