Survivors all


Reporter/Mike Brown Reporter/Mike Brown Cancer survivors gathered at Apache Pass Saturday for the annual Relay For Life, and what more appropriate place for a group photo than in front of another prominent ‘survivor,’ the 102-year-old Worley Bridge, which has been refurbished and set back on its original moorings. Front row (seated L-R) Bill Gregory, Tammy Storey, Harold Biar, Tiffany Parker, Carol Tucker, Carolyn Bailey, Jana Beckhusen; second row, Olivia Taylor, Elaine Quinney, Amos Quinney, Darlene Biehle, Julie Patin, Emily Hinojosa, Donna Robinson, Geraldine Biar, Kay Lagrone, Norman Leschber, Cathy Ormsby; back row, Vermel Bland, Carrie Kiesling, Durwood Tucker, Lova Davis, Candelario Jimenez, Arthur Payne, Claude Lagrone, Gracie Cargill, Jimmy Keen. The annual event raised more than $50,000 for cancer research and education. See page 1B.
