Pine Bluffs Post - Serving all of Eastern Laramie County since 1908

Banner County News


Good morning Banner County, neighbors near and far This week here in the burg things have settled down quite a lot. The junior high girls will have volleyball practice in the gym at the school. I am thinking that those involved and the parents are aware of this because there is no information available as to time, etc. If you are unaware and would like to attend please call the school at 308-436-5262.

Some folks will be celebrating birthdays this week include: Curtis Grubbs, Shaun Jones, Robby Cross, Helen Hein, Tyler Darnall, Brenton Soule, Jacqueline Stauffer, Kadin Smith, Ayden Mitchell, Ashley Harrison, Roger McGowan lV, Kyle Boettcher and Emily Block. Happy Birthday!

Congratulations on another anniversary to Mr. & Mrs. Jay Peterson, Mr. and Mrs. O.G.Linn, Mr. and Mrs. Dustin Lind and Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Thompson.

Yes, things are slow and easy here for now, however this past weekend was a whole different story. Historical Day was June 13th and it could not have been a more beautiful day for all of the folks and activities which were held. The temperature was just about right and the humidity was way too high, but no wind, and no rain. The fire hall started serving pancakes and more around 7 a.m. and the Fun Run was well underway at about the same time. I saw many of you there and hope you enjoyed the day. The Quilt Display was a huge success as approximately 38 quilts were on hand. There was one that was dated in the early ‘30s and one that Bev was sure was older, but uncertain of the date. Young and old they were all beautiful. J.R. Smith with his tales and cowboy poetry entertained us and I am sure every single person in the packed museum was able to relate to more than one reciting. The parade, always one of the favorite events, was pretty darn good, lunch was good also, and so was the cotton candy, sno-cones, and bottles of cold water provided by the Central-Banner County 4-H Club. There was also a talent show, which I was regretfully unable to attend, and the BBQ cook-off, which I have no results on at this time. Everything smelled wonderful though.

Our friends and neighbors in Kimball have an interesting event going on at the Oliver Reservoir Recreation Area. Friday and Saturday, June 19 -20, the Rocky Mountain Observatory will host Bioblitz. This event will begin at 1 p.m. on Friday and finish at 3 p.m. on Saturday. Participants will learn first hand about birds, insects, fish, plants, reptiles, bats, and astronomy. Camping or staying for sessions of your choice is your option for this FREE event for your entire family to enjoy and learn from. Sessions are subject to change due to our unpredictable weather. Preregistration is encouraged and a list of supplies to bring as well as a list of what will be provided is available by calling 660-619-8453. To learn more go to or

After Historical Day last weekend we headed to Kimball for the 7th Annual Ranch Rodeo. We were told that this was their biggest one ever, and I do believe it. Thirteen rodeo teams were listed plus ten individual bronc riders. That is a lot of cowboys, a few cowgirls, lots more horses and cattle. It was a beautiful evening and several local cowboys were part of the competition. Buck Hottell, Josh Stauffer, Brady Cross, John R. Faden, Trevor Soule and Kyle Boetcher and the Rodeo Queen, Paige Cross. Thanks everyone for the entertainment.

Enjoy your Fathers Day weekend with them, or in memory. Well, that is all for now folks. Have a fantastic week and take care.Until next time contact me at 308-436-7152, 308-641-1335, or Barb Cross (Mrs. Rod).
