Banner County News


Good morning Banner County, friends near and far. Things have warmed up some what this week but it sure feels like we are about to enter into our seasonal fall weather pattern. I am ok with that and it is my favorite time of the year.

The goat heads and sand burrs are sure in their prime right now and many of them seem to find their way into the house. They hide out somewhere and jump out in front of me just so that I can step on them and push them as far into my feet as possible. I have lost count of the times we have sprayed around here this summer, and the hail destroyed trees, shrubs, garden and flowers, but the obnoxious weeds carry on!

I heard on the Denver news channel at the beginning of the week that it was their first day of school and that there was about a month of summer left. Maybe, only according to the calendar since over night temperatures have already dropped to and below freezing around LaGrange.

Students at the Banner County School have put in two full weeks as of this Friday. We have approximately 165 students, 16 in kindergarten and nine in pre-school. High school volleyball and football games will first be played the first week of September. There will be some volleyball here at home in September, but we won't see a home football game until October. However, junior high teams will play here on the 10th of September, football only I believe.

This week we are thankful for the continuing recovery of Larry Malm. Also, having a birthday this week are Sherry McKnight, Linda Johnson, Lisa Cox, JB Bohnsack, Karen Wayman, Noah Gifford, Whitnie Olsen and Francelia Johnson. Happy Birthday!

Congratulations to anniversary couples Mr. & Mrs. Rick Lind, Mr. and Mrs. Chris Olsen, Mr. and Mrs. Kyle Boetcher, Mr. and Mrs. Lee Malm, Mr. and Mrs. Rod Van Pelt and Mr. and Mrs. Bo Reichenberg.

My sisters and I recently got together to help celebrate our Aunt laura Eich's 88th birthday. The next day we had a barbecue and enjoyed some corn and tomatoes that they had bought at road side markets. Delicious!

The Senior Center in Kimball is still accepting donations for their annual Rummage Sale which will be held Friday, Aug. 28, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and again Saturday, Aug. 29, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Their address is 107 S. Oak, and Saturdays' sale will be a bag sale. Do some fall cleaning and donate for a good cause in the process.

Well folks that is it for this week, short and sweet. I hope you have a great week and continue to send your news to me at 308-436-7152, 308-641-1335, or Take care until next time. Barb Cross (Mrs. Rod).
