She said that the road will be open as usual, and that it will be kept plowed as done before.

Keep going, Wolves!Thanks go to the MWTC Marines, their families from base housing, and local residents for their work in maintaining the grounds and interior at Coleville High. The state’s budget did not allow for the hiring of a groundskeeper, so all of those who stepped up and did the work for our school deserve our sincere thanks.Lynne Katusich can be reached at email@example.com or (530) 495-2552.
