Page 10 Wednesday, May 2, 2012 Indian Valley '- & Mesa News What Happens in Halfway. When it came to getting the story of the Knit-Wits big adventure, there was lots to tell, but somehow I have a feeling that with this wild and crazy group, most of the story could be summed up with "What goes on in Halfway, stays in Halfway!" From Mary Rininger and ]ackie Dowdy, I did get that ten members went down in two vehi- in Cambridge on Sunday afternoon. Both were very impressed with the won- derful turnout and love shown for their pastor. There are many through- out Indian Valley and Mesa that wish him and his wife, Karen, well on their journey, for he truly is a very special man.

It was when they said they went to lunch at Wild Bill's and there was a horse running loose down the main street of town that the story got a bit shady. I guess we will never know the entire "rest of the story!"

Wildland Firefighting Refresher BY FRAN VILLANO Although the 2011 fire season was basically non- existent, it is anticipated that the 2012 season will be just the opposite, and all area fire departments are on alert. In fact, it was reported that Midvale and Indian Valley have both experienced their first wildland fires this year and the season has yet to begin. To ensure prepared- ness, Tracy McClary of the Midvale RFD conduct- ed a refresher course in wildland firefighting at the Indian Valley fire station on Tuesday, April 24th.
