COTTONWOOD The Summit Academy Patriots edged out Rockland to win their first athletic trophy in the Idaho Class 1A Division II state tournament Saturday at Caldwell High. The score was 51-47 in the consolation championship game helped along by Tyler Krogh’s 22 points. The teams were never more than six points apart, and were tied at halftime. The team and fans showed great school spirit, led by Tommy Rose as the mascot and all the little girls as cheerleaders. Good job, Patriots!
There will be a penance service at 7 p.m. at St. Anthony’s in Greencreek. Next week the penance services will be at Grangeville on March 17 and Nezperce on March 18. In this year of mercy the pope is inviting everyone to come.
Daylight saving time begins on Sunday morning, March 13. You can get up at 2 a.m. and change your clock unless you change it before you go to bed.
The saying, “Early Easter, early spring” seems to be true this year. The daffodils have buds on already. We have lots of little calves running around. I have even seen tractors in the field getting ready to plant.
The Keuterville parish dinner was good as usual. Many people come together to help out with that. Proceeds go to the upkeep of the church.
My grandson, Lane Wassmuth, came out in sixth place in the spelling bee at Lewiston. We are very proud of him.
