Former Eagle signs with the Pioneers of Montana

March 14, 2012

Lone Pine’s Seth Gilmore has been signed by Miles Community College baseball team.
The Montana college’s head baseball coach, Jeff Brabant, announced the signing of shortstop Gilmore, currently a resident of Powell, Wyo., to a National Letter-of-Intent for the 2012-13 school year.
Gilmore can play either position on the left side of the infield as he earned All-State honors for the Powell Pioneers in his first season after moving to Wyoming from Lone Pine. “We will graduate our left side of the infield so we expect Seth to come in and compete for a spot,” said Brabant.

It’s crunch time for 11-year-old Chalfant Valley resident Corie Elizabeth Campbell, who launched a vigorous fundraising campaign in September to earn $8,000 by May 1 to finance a People to People Student Ambassador tour of the United Kingdom.
Two ongoing raffles with prizes to be announced in April, chores for hire and a hand-painted mug sale have helped Campbell to get half way to her goal so far.
On April 1, two raffle prize winners will take home either a Sturm Ruger 10/22 rifle or a Remington 870 .12 gauge shotgun. The first-place ticket-holder gets first choice.

But he can be forgiven.
Sherpa was born in a small village in Nepal, not far from 29,029-foot Mount Everest, where anything below 15,000 feet is considered the foothills.

Broncos’ track teams strong in opener

The Lady Broncos took the meet win, 81-60. The Broncos lost 48-82.
Coach Rick Behrendt was pleased with the results, noting that he has only nine returning athletes on his very young teams.
