I need to make a correction on the article from last week. The Rosburg Store will be serving hunters breakfast beginning at 6 a.m., not 5 a.m., I apologize for any inconvenience.
If you are interested in some good old fashioned sourdough, white or wheat bread, check out Norm Bolton’s fresh baked loaves now on sale at the Rosburg Store. The sourdough makes a delicious piece of French toast. A great breakfast treat and from a local store.
The Grays River Valley Library and Community Computer Center are now open with their regular hours for the time being.

We had a delightful weekend with friends from California and then took the opportunity after they left to head down to Duffy’s Irish Pub for an evening of reggae music, meeting a few members of the community that we had never met, and visiting with a few we knew. It was a great time even though the weather was a little damp.
