In fall 1997 the city council had commissioned the drilling of a new well up in Pinon Canyon. They struck water, but it tapered off after a day and didn’t recover. Drilling anew meant some financial risk for a town with a $220,000 budget; a major project would require floating a bond, and there were no guarantees they’d find any water.
Cec Gaudette was a gifted athlete. Her living room was filled with trophies and awards she earned during her sports career. At age 13, she played ball with a girls’ team for 17 year olds.
