Removed two external links going to the Flume, as they've
retroactively put all their content behind a paywall, requiring visitors to obtain a subscription. Removed:
February 17, 2012 - Pancake Breakfast Draws Estimated 90-plus in Guffey(external link)
January 27, 2012 - Firefighter Dinner Held In Guffey (external link)
Deleted Wordpress blog. It's been supplanted by the Facebook page.
The blog proved more popular with Russian spammers (referer)/skript kiddies, than
members of the district. The cool images Randy provided for the image
carousel are saved and will likely be incorporated into the main page.
Posts deemed important enough for the effort will be posted to Facebook,
or reposted as PDFs to the proper sections. Links to the blog (all
under Press Releases, with one exception) removed. I know I shall feel the
unpenetrable anguish of no longer indulging in the constant fight of
trying to secure Wordpress against the malcontents; whatever will I fill
the hours with? These are the blog titles (as posted) and dates removed (all archived):
