The bridge was completed on 08-27-04 and we are now opened back up for visitors from all directions. Come back to town for a visit soon.
Here's a couple more photos to give everyone an idea of how the construction is coming along with the new bridge at the river park in Goldfield. Alan tells me they have it almost complete except for the walking bridge along the side. Not sure where the aerial photo came from but it gives you a good look at the entire span of the new bridge.

Father's day alumni! I got a chance to play in a golf tournament today
with 3 of my fellow class of 1984 alumni. Pictured from left to right

We didn't win but it was great to see some of my classmates. The picture
below represents almost 1/3 of our graduating class!
Class of 1964 held their 40th year reunion this past weekend in Goldfield.
They had all but one graduate in attendance. It was a very fun filled
you compare these photos Alan just sent me to the ones in the last news
