February 1, 2012 Rainbow Acres Golf Tournament #3 Quartzsite- Twenty-five avid golfers gathered at Rainbow Acres Golf Course on January 26th for a great sunny morning scramble.

The 2nd place team was the team of Jackie Petross, Russ Leininger, Gary McGowan, & Bruce Scott turning in a 37. The 3rd place team included Dar- win Aitken, Bud Key, & Robert Bar- nard who shot a 38.

The closest to the pin winner for women on #2 was Linda Taylor and Dwayne Farmer was clos- est for the men on #9 with a hole in one. Our next tournament will be on Thursday, February 9. All golfers are welcome and registration is at 9:30 with tee off at 10:00. Entrance fee is $6 per person. Come on out and make some new friendships. Vendor Permits up over last year According to Quartzsite Town Manag- er, Alex Taft, vendor permits were up this year. Last year to date, (Jan. 25) 1278 vendor permits were sold. As of Jan. 25 this year, 1327 were sold, an additional 49 over last year. "I expect the numbers to increase, as there are still more shows and vendors are still arriving in town," said Taft. Vendor permits are available online under the "shows" category. "If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf." ~ Bob Hope Page 37 WWW.DESERTMESSENGER.COM for Deadline Schedule and Current Rate Card. YE OLD TIMERS MINERAL CLUB holds rock auction Quartzsite - The Ye Old Timers Mineral Club (YOTC) held their annual fundraising auction full of lots of incredible finds on January 19th. The social club is recognized by, but not sponsored by, the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies. The first meeting was held in February 1941. Club members are from Germany, Eng- land, Canada, Australia, New Zealand as well as hundreds from the United States, including Alaska. The goal is to establish an opportunity for oldsters (50+ years of age) of the mineral, gem and fossil collect- ing hobby to communicate with others of like interests. Also to promote good fel- lowship through field trips, to support local shows and Federation shows. A $300 check was given to the Senior Center to help with their delicious lunch program. Another $300 check was given to Quartzsite Food Bank for the food baskets. DEADLINE is WED. Feb. 8 for Feb. 15th issue of the Desert Messenger Email: Phone: 541-218-2560 WHO IS JENNY MILLS? Her online resume looks good, but she forgot to disclose that she currently works for Richard Oldham. Hmmm? She wants to be mayor and this requires her to enforce town codes and ordinances and yet she herself does not abide by them... She allegedly is operating an online business without a license. Sounds like someone else you know in town. Hmmm? Wake up voters!!! Do your homework. Vote responsibly!
