By Simone Wichers-Voss

Last Saturday, over 300 people in four sittings embraced their Norwegian heritage and came to the Cranfills Gap School to partake in a traditional and idiosyncratic seasonal meal with its culinary roots deep in Scandinavia.

Winter Wonderland

Snow flurry, Christmas trees provide treat for MES kindergarteners

By Simone Wichers-Voss

It’s the perfect way to start the Christmas spirit flowing: a field trip with a hay ride, picking out the perfect Christmas tree, and choosing an ornament.

Groovy Ghoulies

By Nathan Diebenow

Halloween must go on! And so it did despite the threat of heavy rain in Clifton Tuesday evening, October 31. For the first time in its 22-year history, the Clifton Main Street Program held its annual Trick or Treat with Main Street at the Clifton Armory. The final decision to move the event from historic downtown Clifton to the former National Guard site came as afternoon showers increased the possibility of traffic collisions

Weather forecasts over the weekend had given a high probability of storms starting the night before and continuing through All Hallow’s Eve. As it turned out, attendance at the Armory was still huge – even with cold conditions and periodic showers during the evening.
