Northern News

NORTHERN NEWSby Maxine Deeter It is now official – the La Sal branch of the San Juan County library opened for buisness yesterday.  I hope a lot of folks head on down there and take a look (and a book or two). I guess Good Friday is not the best time for a grand opening pot luck.  Last...
NORTHERN NEWSby Maxine Deeter But, will it last?  I was thinking last week that one of the best ways to preserve some things is to freeze them.  So, thinks I, this Christmas card scene produced by last week’s snow should last as it was followed by sub zero temps. Last Sunday morning as...
NORTHERN NEWSby Maxine Deeter Naw, not that kind of falling down – not the “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” kind.  Rather, it is the falling down on the job falling.  Seems I failed to go out and witness the “Trunk or Treat” on Halloween, as I should have as a good reporter. Now, it might...

NORTHERN NEWSby Maxine Deeter Monticello received a couple of nice showers last week. Not so La Sal. Mother Nature only sent a couple of teasers last week. Looks like rain, but no wet! Heck, we even had our Pioneer Day celebration on The Mountain last Saturday night, and even that did...
NORTHERN NEWS By Maxine Deeter Okay, I hope this item does not keep my friends from talking to me now and then. I ran into Margaret Garcia at the post office last Saturday. It had been awhile so we did some catching up. Her grandson Lelo (a favorite young son of La Sal) is learning to...
