Lighting Up Holidays

By Carol Spicer.

Despite having to be rescheduled, the annual lighted Christmas parade lite up downtown Clifton on Thursday night and filled lots of kids with laughter and candy. The parade was down in size, as some floats never got finished due to the recent ice storm, and other floats were being managed by those that got sick – but the city still had many show up to the delight of all those who came to watch.

By Carol Spicer.

The one and only West Shore First Responders’ vehicle was lost Friday morning while trying to get through the ice on an emergency call in The Canyons. Dennis Kruse reported that he was unable to get up one of the hills, and had gotten out of the 20-year-old four-wheel drive unit to engage the 4-wheel drive at the hubs, when the ambulance went by him. He turned around and headed back to Laguna Park, when he caught smoke rolling out from under the hood.

Ice freezes out much of Christmas tour

By Carol Spicer.

With the start of the icy weather on Thursday night and the thermometers dipping well below freezing, the first portion of the annual Norwegian Country Christmas Tour in Clifton, the parade and evening open houses were all cancelled. The parade was re-scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 12, at 6:30 p.m. Come Saturday morning, with ice covering everything in sight, the day started off slowly as everyone wondered what was – or was not – open for the annual tour. The two homes on the tour, both well outside the city on country roads were reported to be open, while the Old Rock Church and Our Savior’s Lutheran Church were closed.

Zion United fills for annual sausage supper

By Carol Spicer.

For many, the holiday season started with the annual sausage supper at Zion United Church at Womack on Saturday, Nov. 30, when the community, families from near and far, and friends gathered in the holiday spirit. After 51 years of planning, organizing, and orchestrating the annual Zion United Church Sausage Supper, it seems that it would be easy; however, when one takes into consideration the last week of preparations the task seems insurmountable.
