On edge

Josh Supinski, eight, practised his boarder moves Friday afternoon at the overpass hill. The sliding hill has been busier this season due to the larger snowfalls here.

Cassidy and Samantha Clinton enjoyed the ride as their grandpa, Gerry Rousseau, pulled the toboggan around the east end of town on Friday.

Sliding howls

Troy Woolsey and his nephew, Adam George, enjoyed a day of tobogganing down the side of the overpass here last Thursday. The hill was packed with kids of all ages enjoying the holiday break.

Muskies then and now

Alumni goalie Megan Bob thwarted Muskie Lauren Krukoski as Ashlee Whalen and Taylor Meyers watched in the background. A late goal by Cortney Caldwell lifted the alumni squad to a come-from-behind 8-7 victory last night at the Ice for Kids arena in the inaugural Muskie girls’ alumni game.

Mexican Christmas

Acting out “Las Posadas,” a traditional Mexican candle-lit procession symbolically commemorating the cold and difficult journey of Mary and Joseph from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of shelter, Fr.

Hamper smiles

Capt. Angel Sandoval of the local Salvation Army handed Marlena Gaune her Christmas hamper last Thursday at the former St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church here. With the support of district residents and businesses, the Salvation Army gave out nearly 200 hampers this holiday season.
