The weather the last couple of months has been a roller coaster ride to be sure. With the arrival of summer last Saturday the temps rose to toasty levels. But what about this wind? Okay, I admit defeat. This does seem to be a windier-than-usual spring. Now, an update and a rest of the story on my...
Our neighbor!  What is that man doing “floating” up there?! Well, here’s how the situation sort of came about. The neighbor’s son is building a new home in West La Sal. The wide expanse of his roof was covered by a thin sheet of weather barrier.   Spring winds had precluded the installation of the...
Usually this time of year I am writing to tell you all about the year end happenings at La Sal Elementary School. As with most things in our world at present, the “virus” has affected the norm.   There was no end-of-the-year get-together at our local one-roomed schoolhouse to show families and...
 It is an interesting year to say the least for seniors graduating from high school or other educational institutions. Besides only being able to enjoy a “virtual” graduation, some missed out on other extra spring activities.   In lieu of graduation, my offering for them this year is a biographical...
Well, such a springtime in the Rockies can be spring-like. “When it’s springtime in the Rockies, there’ll be six feet of snow or it’ll be 40 below.”  We do take spring a day at a time in this part of the world, where Ma Nature gives us a spring day here and there. We’ve had more than a few nice...
I’m not talking about high school seniors either, although we do have several of those in our village this year. Gauge Johnson, Tyler Beshoner, and Macy Badger are all – or were – seniors at Monticello High this year.   The guys finished their school requirements by the end of the winter quarter...
 And you know I am not talking about tile squares either.  Nope, it’s the TP. No more large, fluffy luxurious wades of whiteness with which to do the job. Now I’m trying to judge the minimum for completing the task.   I’m also still trying to figure out a lot of things in the current, unprecedented...
I often tout the greatness of our community of Sierra La Sal. Also, I think I mention from time to time that “it takes a village...” in this case, not only to raise a boy, but evidently to help a young man complete his Eagle Scout project.  If you drive into La Sal from the west, you will now...
NORTHERN NEWS Sing along with me: “See them tumbling down, pledging their love to the ground, lonely but free I’ll be found, tumbling along with the tumbling tumble mustard.” The elements came together this Spring to provide the perfect conditions (whatever those are) for a bumper crop of tumble...
by Maxine Deeter At approximately 10 a.m. on August 2, a highway construction worker employed by LeGrand Johnson was involved in a one-vehicle accident on Highway 46 east of La Sal.  Kayonnie Rodriquez, 43 of Blanding, was the sole occupant in a large dump truck when it tipped.  First...
