  2. Chris, I am sadden in learning the passing of Jim. I will always hold a fond memory of Jim and my relationship with the Manning family. I offer to you and your family all my respect and sympathy. Dewey Dean, New Bern, NC

  3. Our family hiked the Lil Rattler yesterday then went to the top of Teeofrnodt . What great views from up there . When friends come to town I always take them to the top of Tenderfoot for a look see . Just another reason I think Salida is the best place to live .
