Elk City News: Ball mill is all ready to be installed

ELK CITY — The community has lost the longest living resident in Elk City. Joe King died Friday. He was born in 1939, came here as a baby on a stagecoach via the old Elk City Wagon Road and was raised by his grandmother. He went to school here, having Gertrude Maxwell for his teacher for most of the grades. He worked in the logging industry, at the saw mill, and various other jobs in the woods over the years. Pray for comfort for the family.
