Last year's Cedaredge Bruins girls' basketball team had a marvelous season and finished with one of the best records in Class 2A basketball, 20-4. Three of the four losses came against league foe Paonia.
Delta boys' head basketball coach Von Mitchell knows this could be a rewarding season for basketball at Delta High School. With just two seniors, Easton Metcalf and Jonny Ponce, listed on this year's varsity roster, the Panthers will be building a more experienced team that potentially has the ability to finish high in the 4A WSL.
Since the early part of the 20th century, seeing movies on the big screen has been an American tradition. The big screen came to Paonia in October 1928, when an enterprising citizen named Tom Poulos opened the Paonia Theatre on Grand Avenue.

The parade entry that best expressed the event's theme of "A Cowboy Christmas" was created by the Best of the West 4-H Club.
