As the East dominated the play against the West last Sunday, a quick check on the definition of the word Argonaut seemed necessary.

Congratulations are sent out to Chad Sorensen and Melitta Walgenbach, who were married on Saturday evening at the Stettler Hall. The newlyweds will reside in Big Valley.
