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...
It’s not my week to write this column, but there is some updating necessary. First of all, the La Sal Elementary kiddos program has been moved up a day to Tuesday, December 21. It starts at 6 p.m. sharp. These folks somehow ignore La Sal Standard time. Next, a report on the first (hopefully...
