Banner County News


Good morning Banner County! After a week of horrible strong winds, this one has been quite a lot nicer. I know many of you who had property damage due to the wind last week and we had our share so now we have those messes to clean up. Did you see the pictures from out at the Scotts Bluff National Monument of the cattle pulling the covered wagon? Mother Nature doing some ‘cow tipping!’ Seriously though, I hope there was no serious damage.

For real cattle, this past Saturday was beef weigh-in time for 4-H and FFA members who are planning on selling at the next County Fair in August. Our kids already have their work cut out for them as they could show next week, weight wise.

The Central-Banner County 4-H Club met last Sunday at the school cafeteria with 18 members present. Old and new business was taken care of and the date for the next meeting was set. Quality Assurance will be on tap at the next meeting and dues are due!

Congratulations to grandma and grandpa, Annette and Mark Knaub on the recent arrival of grandson Jaxson Charlie Loutzenhiser. Jaxson was born January 27, weighing 6lbs. 9oz., and 19 1/2 inches long. He joins big sisters Kassie and Kambrie and is welcomed by mom and dad Kelsey and Josh, and grandparents Mike and Cheryl Loutzenhiser.

Celebrating birthdays this last week of February are Robin Parsons, Shawn Fulk, Ben & Roger McGowan, Jim Nelson, Tina McKeehan, Renae Hobby, Riley (Smith) McNees and Wyatt Reichenberg. Happy Birthday!

Anniversaries this week are celebrated by Mr. and Mrs. Don Cashlier which is on the Feb. 29.

Whoot whoot for leap year, the year we are supposed to be making up for the time lost over the last four years by adding that extra day.

This one is rated R and is about a young woman who is kidnapped and held for years in the backyard of her capture in a very small enclosure. Eventually she has a child and they escape. I did not see were this was based on a true story, but do any of you remember a story like this several years ago? Somewhere west of us I think.

Well friends, have a great week and take care until next time. Barb Cross (Rod) at 436-7152, 641-1335, or
