TIME TO CELEBRATE

Adults weren't the only ones ceremonially breaking ground for the new Smith River School gymnasium Thursday, as students also got into the act, above.

The audience, right, numbered close to 100 for the event celebrating the

beginning of the end of an effort that started with community

fundraising in 2004.

County Supervisor Mike Sullivan and Principal Paige

Swan were among those who took to the podium.
