Mother deer will leave babies for up to 12 hours a day

3:30 am. That's the time the baby crows start squawking for their morning meal. Welcome to summer in the north. Between the raucous of the crows, baby black-capped chickadees flapping their wings while twittering in the mayday tree and tadpoles lapping against the shore at Silverthorne Lake the earth feels alive with life.

Houston Secondary School graduation

The ceremony was a two-part affair - with a grad class of 34 students, the first part consisted of each grad seated in the gym with the appropriate physical distancing. And then a parade that started at Steelhead Park and through town so local residents could cheer the grads on. The parade ended at the Willow Grove Golf & Country Club where the grads then in an outdoor setting of picnic tables spaced appropriately apart, enjoyed a take-out supper from local restaurants. More pictures will be in June 24 issue which will include the grad supplement of both schools. (Angelique Houlihan photo)
