    Jack H. Smith, Three Forks Voice|Jun 7, 2023

    A few days ago, the Three Forks High School conducted a ceremony for the Class of 2023. I wish all the graduates well in the future, whether moving on to college, the workforce, taking some time off, or not having a clue what they will do, which is perfectly fine too. While it certainly does not feel like yesterday, I cannot believe that I graduated from high school nearly 30 years ago, which makes me sad. Where did the time go? I spent a few minutes trying to reflect on my graduation day, but my recollection is probably not as straightforward... Full story

  • Coaches Corner by Ellie West: What brings you 'Joy'

    Jun 7, 2023

    What brings you joy seems to be a simple enough question, but when was the last time you considered your level of joy? Some may find that they are out of balance and wondering how to fix it. Although we all strive to be more positive, few of us know how to bring more pleasure into our lives while pushing away negative thoughts and worries about how things should go. Life happens, and we sometimes fall into the trap that a happy life means every day must be perfect. For most people and me, that joy you feel deep inside lies within the tiny...
