How about that winter we're having this winter? I know some of you are getting tired of the white stuff we've experienced since early November...but you've got to admit it's given us ample opportunities for some awesome "Kodak moments."
However tired you may be of the snowy interruptions to your regular life, you have to admit that we've had the chance to enjoy some absolutely beautiful landscape scenes this winter. And while I am grateful for those winter scenes -- I am also absolutely grateful to the Klickitat County Road Department for working so hard to keep the roads plowed, graded and sanded for safety this winter! Thanks guys!
The TLG boys and girls basketball teams have been busy playing make up games before district competition kicks off in Goldendale this Wednesday. The TLG girls are seeded second going into district play while the boys' standing was not final as of press time.

Bo-Deen Arnold coached the girls team including Amy Keithly, Dave'y Lumley and Mariah Smith. Toni Troh served as the cheerleading advisor to Julia LaVallie. Best wishes everyone for successful district competition!

The Spies family has been flying the friendly skies lately. Dustin was home on a short leave from his job in Hawaii the week before last. Extended family and friends got together for a feast prepared by Grandma Lois Dechand, and a snowmobile ride while Dustin was in Glenwood. Darrell and DeeDee flew to San Diego, Calif., to visit Darren, Devin, Daegan and Donavin this past weekend. Their plans included a visit to Sea World and a school carnival while they were in California.
Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery are sent to Les Blair.
