He has plans to have another horse and oxen pull. We are trying to raise money to move the old East Knox School up by Shirley Bessey's place.

Mount View alumni game
The games were pretty good. The ladies' green team won over the younger team, 40-28. Miranda Doughty was really playing a great game. She snapped two 3-point shots like it was nothing at all. She had more points as well. Great going to all the ladies. The men's game, the younger guys won, 58-37. They had a good game, although it got a little rough. Winning the four-wheeler was Lucky Skidgell, lawn mower was won by Hunter Tibbetts, the chainsaw and goodies went to Roger Parker. I didn't get names for the other prize winners. There was a real good crowd that attended. The cheerleaders from years past were pretty good as well. Gas prices
