Elvis up­date. He re-ap­peared last week af­ter be­ing gone for 10 days. He showed up a cou­ple of times to eat and drink and he is gone again. We be­lieve he has a sec­ond lo­ca­tion that he is get­ting food and wa­ter from that must be a fair dis­tance from town. At this point we be­lieve it is some­where straight east of town. How­ever, it re­ally could be any­where. If any­one knows his sec­ond lo­ca­tion it would be help­ful for us to make sure he stays safe. Con­tact Traci Rasmussen or Carolyn Larsen Faqcett if you have any info.

As al­ways, sub­mis­sions can be made to stan­dard­newz@gmail.com or to Pas­tor Dyanna Cou­ture at 403-644-3998. Please try to have your sub­mis­sions in by early evening on Sun­day!
