GOODBYE TO THE OLD SWEENEY GYM!
On Monday, February 27th, the first steps in the demolition of our old Sweeney Gym were taken in preparation for the building of the New Convention Center. Mayor Larry Delgado manned the bulldozer for the first bite out of the old building. There was a large crowd of onlookers and press. Most were excited to start on what will be a lovely and significant addition to downtown, but many, like myself, were a bit nostalgic at saying goodbye to a place that was such a source of excitement and happiness in our younger days--basketball games for the Mighty Demons (Dwight being in the thick of the battle), proms, dances, assemblies and even our graduation. Some memories will be forever blue and gold..........
Cousins, they're n0n-identical cousins all the way! And that's Bob Keesing of the SFHS Class of 1967--who also came to say goodbye to some great memories. (I couldn't bring myself to crop him out!) Posted by Picasa

COUNCIL SEND-OFF FOR MAYOR LARRY DELGADO!
At his last City Council meeting as Mayor, Larry was treated to a sincere demonstration of affection and respect. There were testimonials from the Councilors, Indian dances, a Mariachi Band, cake and lots of well wishers. After sixteen years serving this city Larry and Angie deserve a pat on the back and a lot of admiration for a job well done.
