Dobyns said many of his arrowheads are in collections from here to England.

Pendleton High School awarded graduation diplomas to 189 students Wednesday night, but one graduate earned a standing ovation. Holley Dames, who had been told after an October 1988 accident she might never walk again, used a walker to reach the stand where School Board Chairwoman Debbie Hawkins handed her an award. Most of the approximately 2,000 in attendance stood and cheered as Dames, who started this school year in a wheelchair, retrieved her diploma.
