[b]Spring Snow hits area [/b]

Posted by Nicole
Two quick moving spring snow storms went through the area over the weekend dumping five inches or more of snow across the Lyman County area.

While amount varied, Charles Bowar, National Weather Observer from Kennebec, recorded about a inch of moisture between the Friday evening and Sunday evening snow.

Lyman County deputy sheriff Steve Manger reported that emergency personal responded to numerous vehicles in the ditch along I-90 during the storm due to ice and snow.

Early Saturday morning about 1:00 a.m. a delivery truck went off Highway U.S. 83 about 2 miles north of Vivian then two semi trucks with cattle trailers became stuck trying to travel north on U.S. 83 at the same location. It took until about 4 a.m. to get them all out and going again, stated deputy Manger.

Lyman School had an one hour late start Monday morning due to the icy road conditions.

Posted by Nicole
Members of Reliance Area Community Development (RACD) concluded their 12th annual Dinner Theatre with the third performance Saturday, March 4 at the Legion Hall in Reliance.

Pam Reis directed the three-act play Faraway Eyes by Ray Sheers produced by special arrangement with Heuer Publishing, LLC, Cedar Rapids, IA to three sold out audiences Feb. 25, March 3, and March 4. Cast members included; Sherry Lulf, Shane Reis, April Reis, Warren Karlen, Chris Eymer, Joyce Hoffer, Danny Elwood, Donnie McManus, Gayle Mohr, Bruce Eymer, David Reis, Heidi Reis, Tessa Tatro, Jessica Hyde, Lori Marsh, Will Reis, Joel Olivier, Leslie Reuer, and Christina Hoffer. Assisting back stage were Will Reis and Brenda Reis. Other RACD members helped prepare and serve the dinner prior to the performance.

The RACD group works to promote the town of Reliance. The dinner theatre is one of their major fund raising events of the year.
In 2005, RACD took an active role in the planning and organization of the Reliance Centennial celebration. RACD has also given financial support to area individuals and families for various catastrophic and medical expenses. The group has helped with the Reliance cemetery project including the gazebo and the veterans memorial. In addition to other cemetery maintenance work.

RACD plans to continue working on the cemetery project in 2006 under the leadership of David Reis, president; Shane Reis, vice-president; Leslie Reuer, treasurer; and Heidi Reis, secretary. A cemetery plot map will be developed and placed inside the gazebo allowing visitors helpful information in finding locations of grave sites. The club also intends to update the mowing equipment used at the cemetery.
