Spaghetti Dinner To Benefit Wrestlers


The Longhorn wrestling team hosts its annual all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. this evening (Tuesday) in the Rim Country Middle School cafeteria.

Chef Mark Fumusa will be on hand to cook a dinner of spaghetti, salad and toast that promises to be a tasty meal.

Proceeds from the annual fund-raiser benefit the wrestling team.

Tickets available at the door or from any team member are $5 for adults and $3 for children. Family passes may be purchased for $15.

Think snow

Sunrise Park Resort opened one of its three mountains to skiing Dec. 14. A limited number of trails were open to the top of the mountain.

Days prior to the opening, Sunrise received 13 inches of new snow. By Monday, Sunrise had a snow base of about 26 inches midway up the mountain. Snowmaking machines continued to work throughout the weekend.

Sunrise was the only skiing venue in the state now open. Arizona has other sites at Arizona Snowbowl near Flagstaff, Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley near Tucson and the Williams ski area.

All three were awaiting more snowfall before opening.

Sunrise, located east of Pinetop in the White Mountains, is the largest of Arizona's ski areas.

Owned and operated by the White Mountain Apaches, the facility when fully operational features 65 skiable trails located on three mountains Apache Peak, Sunrise Peak and Cyclone Circle.

The park has double, triple and quad lifts capable of moving more than 15,000 skiers per hour up the mountain. Other facilities include a 100-room full-service lodge, a rental/sport shop, ski school, restaurants and child care.

Lift tickets for all day are $37 for adults and $21 for juniors ages 12 years and under.

Call (520) 735-7660 for most recent skiing conditions.

Looking for a gift?

A great Christmas gift for any avid Arizona Diamondback fan would be a limited-edition ceremonial first-pitch baseball from the 2001 world series.

The ball, offered by Lakeside Sports of Wood Lake, Minn., bears a full-color American flag in place of the World Series logo.

Lakeside officials say replicas of the ball were used in pregame events by President Bush and other dignitaries.

The ball is available for $24.95 by calling Lakeside at (877) 932-2257.
