  • Halloween was well celebrated in Mora last weekend.

    There was the haunted house on Sunday. The Little League players, board members and parents went all out to make a spooky haunted house at the elementary gym. The lobby was even spooky with a witch at the popcorn machine and a ticket taker beside her.

  • No matter how much things may change, some things just seem to stay the same. As I write this at the late date for change of seasons topics, I wonder what comes next in out crazy weather cycles.
