appreciation to citizens during
Lake Columbia survey
Beginning in February 2006,
archeologists from Horizon
Environmental Services, Inc.
(Horizon), of Austin conducted
an archeological survey of the
Lake Columbia reservoir site
(formerly known as Lake
Eastex) in Cherokeeand Smith
Archeologists surveyed the
proposed reservoir area to
search for prehistoric and
historic archeological sites,
native and historic eemeterie s,
historic standing structures, as
well a s other cultural resources,
in order to record any cultural
sites that occur within the
limits of the proposed Lake
The archeological survey
was performed on behalf of
the Angelina & Neches River
Authority (ANRA), the agency
that is sponsoring the proposed
As of June 2006, this phase
of the archeological field effort
has been completed, and Hori-
zon would like to express our
heartfelt thanks to the fine
people of Cherokee and Smith
counties for the encourage-
ment, assistance and good
cheer they offered us during
our fieldwork. The many people
who contributed to our effort
are too numerous to name indi-
vidually, and any attempt to do
so wouldbe doomedto failure in
this limited space. Suffice it to
say that we deeply appreciate
everybody with whom we came
I would, nevertheless, be
remiss not to thank a few
specific parties for their ongo-
ing support. The people who
own land within the Lake
Columbia project site were,
almost unanimously, extremely
enthusiastic about the lake
project and our archeological
work, and generously offered
our field crews everything from
information and lunch to gate
codes andridesback to our field
vehicles. Many people offered
substantial insights about the
local archeology, connections
to others with knowledge of
the area, and informative com-
ments during the USAGE'S
public meeting in Jacksonville
in August 2005.
The ¡proprietors and staff of
the Weston Inn and Suites in
Rusk were most kindduring our
stay in the area and provided
us with everything we needed
with humor, patience, andgra-
ciousness. We would also hke to
thank the Cherokeean Herald
for their interest in the project.
We enjoyed talking with your
reporter and showing him the
"ins and outs' of our work.
Again, to all of the mem-
bers of the local communi-
ties of Jacksonville, New
Summerfield, Rusk, Troup,
Tyler and all points in between,
thank you warmly for your
enthusiasm, your interest, and
all of the support you provided
throughout this archeologi-
cal field effort. Without your
involvement, this project would
not have proceeded anywhere
near as smoothly as it did or
been half as enjoyable for us.

Norway couple seeks
KASPER ANDE KARISIMONSEN
About three years ago we lost
contact with our relatives who
used to live near Rusk,
They are Kasper's cousins,
Mrs. Tordis and Earl Cum-
We visited them with our
three boys back in 1989 and
stayed with them for some days
at their ranch near Rusk.
Before she retired Tordis
used to work as a teacher and
Earl was a pastor. He used to
give morning prayers on a local
radio station in/near Rusk and
he enjoyed playing golf.
Our Christmas letter to them
in 2002 was returned to us after
some time - marked by the post
informing us they had moved
