Cemetery face lift

The Anderson Cemetery, located south of Battle Mountain on County Road 710, recently got a face lift. The graves in the cemetery had become obscured due to the overgrowth of sagebrush and weeds. Thanks to all who helped, the headstones are now visible. We hope everyone will notice the excellent job by these citizens.

Is it a bird?

It’s a bird, no it’s a plane, actually it’s Little Snake River School music teacher Carl Baxter. Baxter has been seen recently flying over the valley in his ultra-light. It seems like he is having fun. Wouldn’t it be great to fly, too?
