With sympathy
Sympathy is with the family and friends of Bruce McAlister. Bruce died Dec. 26, 1999, following a lengthy illness. Bruce had been a resident of the Little Snake River Valley before moving to Craig, Colo., a few months ago. No services are currently planned. Cremation has taken place with interment to be at a later date. Survivors include two sisters in Craig, Kris Balleck and Bea Roe.
Reception held
A reception was held Dec. 26 honoring the Rev. John Frary, Vicar at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Dixon. "Father John," has served the Snake River community the past 12 years. His parishioners honored him upon his retirement and gave their thanks.
Higher education
Carbon County Higher Education Coordinator Christy Stocks has sent out new brochures for the upcoming class schedule. We hope you will take a moment and check it out, education is never a waste of time or money. If a class is not being offered you are interested in, contact Christy. Remember, volunteer activities are also listed and suggested, so get involved in the community.
High school basketball
High school basketball will resume Jan. 7. The Rattlers will travel to Hanna with games beginning at 4 p.m. The Rattlers will host the Hayden girls at 5 p.m. on Jan. 11 while the boys travel to Hayden to play at 5 p.m. We hope you'll show up and cheer on these teams as they are doing great thus far. Good luck, Rattlers.
Left behind
We understand things were a little hectic for Debbie Myers when she got left behind in El Paso while the rest of the community church group headed on to Mexico. We look forward to their return home and to hear about the trip. I'm sure Debbie will get most of the attention.

New Year's Eve
Plans are under way for the celebration of the upcoming New Year. The Dixon Club will host a dance at 9 p.m. with "Down Home Country."

Whatever your choice may be, we wish you a joyous holiday and remember to be careful. Happy New Year.
