COTTONWOOD The snow is melting pretty fast except for the drifts or piles of snow that the tractors made. I wasn’t home the day the three- foot drift outside my kitchen window went away. The wheat fields seem to have survived the snow cover for two and one-half months. Cottonwood Ski Butte still has lots of snow so you still have a chance to go skiing and not have to travel a long distance.

Junior high teams traveled to Boise for the Hallisey Tournament last weekend. The Tri-Parish girls team won it all with a lay-in at the buzzer and came in first place. The boys team won four and lost two and came in second. The Summit Academy girls won and lost two and came home with the sportsmanship trophy. The teams all played hard and did their best. All the coaches are very proud of them.
