Comments from the Canyons: Quay tree tradition lives on

Lynn Moncus We have a number of Christmas traditions in our county and can trace many of them back to other countries and times before our county came into being.

Cold gets old

Russell Anglin Don’t you just hate the cold? I really do. In fact, there’s nothing about it that I particularly care for. I would just as soon skip the chilliness of winter months.

Holiday more than gifts

By Chris Schmaedeke, QCS managing editor Christmas season has a different feel to it in current times. The country is in an economic recession and unemployment is as high as it has been in many years. It seems like everybody you talk to speaks about how money is tight. It is too easy to get [...]
