   These are the stories you will find in this week's newspaper:
  • Unforgettable experience: Forest Service officer Chris Holland knew something seemed strange when he came across a man digging a shallow hole in the woods three years ago. What he discovered was unforgettable.
  • Suicide prevented: Thanks to police and mental health workers, a man who stood on the edge of the Spanish Creek Bridge for more than two hours didn’t jump.
  • Dig could be delayed: The sheriff said he will discover what lies at the bottom of a Meadow Valley well — he’s just not sure how to pay for it or when it will happen.
