The Trout Lake Festival of the Arts is coming July 14 and 15. Over 50 artists, many of whom are local, with wares ranging from painting and photography to pottery and jewelry. Hosted at Dean and Rosie Hostetter's historic 1890s farm at 490 Sunnyside Rd. There will be activities for the kids and face painting. Delicious food from Otto's Sausages, Cheri (of Heavenly Grounds), Maryhill wine and Double Mountain beer, and ice cream to beat the heat.

The music line-up is one to enjoy in and of itself. There is plenty of free parking, so come out and grab a spot in the shade to hear some great tunes while pondering which new piece of art you can't live without. Hours are Saturday, 10 to 5 and Sunday, 10 to 4. Take a look at

Twelve graduates of Trout Lake High School were honored with over $100,000 in merit based aid from colleges and universities across the country. In addition, the Trout Lake Community Foundation handed out over $30,000 in merit based scholarships to graduates of the class of 2012 and also alumni of the school who are continuing to pursue their bachelors, masters or doctoral degrees. These efforts by the foundation are greatly appreciated and are evidence of the generous support of the community for its K-12 school.

New this year were awards in the amount of $2,500 given out by the Trout Lake Abbey. There was no application for these awards, but they were given to students who had potential to make significant contributions to our world. In addition, these students, when financially secure, were challenged to "give back" financially to a younger student that they may come in contact with later in their life.

Skyline Hospital will be offering free sports physicals to high school students in the area on Aug. 2.
