Nat. Guard and crews from all over the state are working around the clock to help people with sandbagging and building levee's etc. to beat the clock for the great flood. Now talk of even 200,000 cfs possible release, but for now only up to 150,000 cfs on June 14. Up to 800 places going to flood and possible ruination with no flood insurance on most, because they were told they weren't in the flood plain.

45th Reunion a Wonderful Success!
We had a nice time at the reunion, even though it was hotter than blazes! There were classmates attending whom we hadn’t seen since the 60s! Several teachers were there as well as parents. The best part was the visiting and laughing. Everyone left talking about having a 50th – a good sign!
Check out our reunion photos!

The T. F. Riggs High School Class of 1965 40th Reunion was a resounding success!
The mixer on Friday was wild. A couple of
teachers showed up! The 60's DJ was excellent and everybody rocked until
way past bed time. Saturday we hung out at the Legion Cabin, by
the big tent we had set up. Tom Noble and Paul Mitchell gave motorcycle
rides to take people by the house they grew up in--nice touch.
Here's a little something for the strays among us!
