Bob Schneider and Tes Ferguson, two Weston mountain young gladiators, engaged in an altercation on the streets of Weston Thursday morning.

The trauma of a house fire threatened to darken the holiday season for Sonny and Vicki Morris and their four sons. But the Pendletonians endured, and had a joyous Christmas, thanks to a caring community. A house fire on Nov. 15 destroyed the family’s clothing, furnishings and heirlooms. The American Red Cross provided a hotel room and meal vouchers for one week. For a happier Christmas, Denny’s Restaurant employees raised $320 through cash donations and quilt raffle. They delivered nonperishable food from St. Mary’s Outreach Catholic social services. “There are so many people in the community who did so much,” Vicki says. Many benefactors were unknown to the family beforehand.
