A local La Salian, Sierra Bull, is ready set the world on fire. And she is only six years old. Here area of expertise – motocross. Sierra has the opportunity to race at the world’s most prestigious event, the Loretta Lynn AMA Amateur Motocross Championship in Tennessee August 1st through the 6th...
Well, if the wind would stop blowing, we’d think it was Spring. Every year some folks say they think it is blowing harder this year. I’m inclined to agree. The temperatures are nice, but the wind, ugh! Okay, so it would not be Spring here if there were not wind. If it is Spring, the local gals (and...
This time of year, the wind blows in fiercely one day and blows on the next. That has certainly been the case this Spring. Last week, “Hollywood” did much the same in our village. They blew in one day and after a furious round of activity, were just as quickly gone. It all started one day with a...
After a hiatus of a couple of years or more, the infamous La Sal Dynamite Shoot is back! Course, a lot of things have been absent for two years as the world went through a pandemic. But as far as I know, there is only one dynamite shoot and it’s ours. Okay, there are probably others out there...
Truth be told, I’m discontent every winter. I don’t like cold or snow or wind. I threaten to move back to Southern Arizona each year. I was recently talking to a friend about how I hated wind and cold. He says, you hate wind and cold, but you live in La Sal? Our winters really aren’t that severe,...
A couple of events occurred this week within the time warp – me writing, you reading. Such is the reality of a weekly newspaper.  Sunday night was the March meeting of the La Sal Literary Guild.  I know that’s a strange night for us to meet, but there was a short deadline in getting our books...
We’ve had many days recently that feel like spring. Then last week we received some muchneeded and much-prayed-for snow and some frigid temperatures. This week however, we are slated for the return of springlike weather. By then we should be able to enjoy a wonderful mud event too. I take comfort...
As soon as the Holidays are over, I’m yearning for Spring.  I’m not a winter person!  That’s when the seed and plant catalogues start arriving in the mail.   I think the first one came on January 2 this year.  Heck, it was only two weeks into official winter.  I keep telling my spouse that he...
Several decades ago, the Kyle family moved to La Sal.  In all the years they lived here, they were active in community affairs and an integral part of our village.   In the ensuing years, two of them have passed to their eternal reward.  Two, Merlene and her daughter Sue, have moved to Moab into...
December 21 was the night appointed for the annual (except for last year) La Sal Elementary School Christmas Program. After being skipped last year due to COVID, there was a lot of anticipation for the program’s return. Scheduled for this year was the play “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Parts...
