PAGE 2 December 29, 2016 We hope you enjoyed last week's 32-page Christmas issue of the Tri-County News. We put a lot of work into it, and so did elementary students at both Kimball and Eden Valley-Watkins Elementary schools. Our Christmas issue featured a number of these students' draw- ings, sponsored by local busi- nesses. Thank you, both students and sponsors! We made two mistakes, though. We misidentified one drawing, and left out another. Both girls were gracious and understanding. But we promised to reprint them, and set it straight. Below is the real drawing by Lorelei Lorentz. This was next- in-line for a third-place award. Below that is the drawing we fea- tured last week, by Payton Finger (not Lorelei). Both girls won prize money, and will receive corrected letters of congratulation. Thank you for your patience and grace, girls! ....... ......... , Hundreds of students at bothdrawings to select several to be Every student who submit- the Kimball and Eden Valley-run as business ads for sponsor- ted a drawing is a winner in our Watkins elementary schools made ing local businesses.
