Fishing Derby still happening

The Eastern Sierra Second Summer Derby is still going on, with many fish being caught and checked in for prizes. I checked with Dan at the Walker Country Store, which is the check-in location, and he said there are still eight tagged fish out on the river to be caught. A tagged fish will get you a larger prize when checked in, so since the fishing has been pretty good lately, keep on trying to get one.

A special place

I recently learned about the Cancer Resource Center at 1535 Medical Parkway in Carson City. This center and the volunteers who operate it are very special. They are there to help cancer patients with a wide variety of needs, such as wigs for those needing them after hair loss, as well as many other items that one might need. In addition, they can give a gas credit card for those coming to the Center for their repeated radiation treatments. The cards are only available by virtue of donations the Center receives from the public, so it would seem to me that this is a great place to make a donation and help those in need of a little assistance. Their phone number is (775) 445-7500 for any information you might want.

Coleville High football

The Wolves had been rolling along with huge victories this year, but unfortunately, they met the team from Carlin last week and lost by a score of 58-28. Hopefully, this won’t happen again soon, but they are facing a tough Virginia City team this week for their homecoming game starting at 1 p.m. Let’s all try to get there and root them home a winner again.

This and that

The Antelope Valley Women’s Club will be holding their 44th annual Christmas bazaar Nov. 20, at the Community Center in Walker. There will be a roast beef or turkey dinner from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and craft booths, door prizes, raffles and gifts available beginning when they open at noon. There will also be a silent auction of ranch memorabilia by Marilyn Summers, which should be really interesting, with all proceeds going to the club’s scholarship fund.

The sentiments and dissatisfaction caused by Art Paniagua’s departure from the Topaz Ranch Medical Clinic haven’t quit. As a matter of fact, feelings seemed to heat up again after a recent letter from Carson Valley Medical Center was received by clinic patients. My phone has been ringing with calls about the letter. Unfortunately it didn’t seem to address the patients’ issues to their satisfaction at all. We can still hope that Art will be somewhere available to the many who want to continue with his good care.
