— Finally, we get some sunshine! We went for a drive yesterday in the Kooskia area and saw more than 200 deer, turkeys and pheasants. So, they must have survived the winter okay. I’ll bet they are as happy as we are to be rid of the snow.

Remember that the Cottonwood Community Cleanup for the City Of Cottonwood is going on until June 1. Residents, businesses, organizations, and schools are encouraged to participate.

Yesterday at St. Mary’s Church in Cottonwood, a group of second graders received their first Holy Communion. Their little faces were radiant with joy to have Jesus in their heart. Congratulations to all of you.
