Pleasant Hill's own, Seargeant Todd Burris, had a goal to ride the trail from Pleasant Hill to St. Louis. A video of him ringing the bell that signaled the completion of his trip was sent to the Time by his mother along with a picture of Burris on his bike. He completed the trek last Sunday.
The Big Boy train came through Pleasant Hill this week on Tuesday at about 2:45 pm. About 2 to 300 people came out to see the train in all of its glory. It was an eventful afternoon. There were photographers looking for a great shot and talking cameras, and there was even talk about starting a Pleasant Hill photography club.

Vicky Hartzler was the speaker at this week's Pleasant Hill Chamber meeting. There were several new members present and Hartzler spoke about current events.
