We still haven’t heard from the owner of a class ring found at the Brush Creek Park earlier this month. The 2002 man’s ring has the name Roke Valasco engraved on the inside of the band. It is here at the newspaper office, located at 108 West Second Street. Tell us the high school it’s from and the color of the stone, and we will be happy to reunite it with its owner.
The streets of Eagle will be a whole lot quieter today, with elementary kids beginning the 2014-15 school term. Middle school students returned to classrooms Tuesday and Eagle Valley High School students started school Wednesday. Best wishes to all students and staff for the school terms ahead.
