Banner County News


Good morning to each of you and here is hoping that the world is treating you well!

Last week was the first of March and it started out acting like a lamb, but by the end of the day we had snow, so your guess is as good as mine on how we will bring April in. Personally I am ready for Spring.

Remember to spring forward this coming Sunday as it is once again time for the time change. I really do not look forward to loosing any sleep and it takes me about two weeks to adjust.

The elementary students celebrated the wonderful works of Dr. Seuss this past week and ended the time with the entire high school as they paired up in the big gym to read with the younger ones. They each had chocolate cupcakes decorated with white and red stripes at the end of the day, like Cat in the Hat’s hat.

There really is not a lot going on right now, however the girls basketball teams are having the talent show tonight at the school beginning at 6 p.m. This is to raise money for summer camps. If you did not get a ticket they will be available at the door. Free popcorn will be included and the program is expected to finish at about 7:30 p.m.

Students will be home early on this Friday, March 11 as the third quarter of school comes to a close. They will head for home at 1:50 p.m. and staff will remain for a regular scheduled work day.

Some students will be heading to Washington D.C. and New York City as part of their Close-Up Trip with teacher Angie Hilbert. They will be gone March 13-20.

The school board will hold their regular meeting on Monday, March 14 at 7 p.m. and as always you are encouraged and welcome to attend.

The local driver’s testing person will be available at the Banner County Courthouse on Wednesday, March 16th from 9 a.m. until noon. Good luck with that one.

Birthday folks this week include Marci Isom, Pam Mooney, Jenna Whelchel, Lee McGowan, Mark Knaub, Kenny Stauffer and Linda Barrett. Happy Birthday!

Anniversary couples are Mr. and Mrs. Dwayne Muhr, Kurt Baker, and Ryan Norman. Congratulations!

The Kimball Public Library will host an Open House on Monday, March 14 from 2-6 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Also in Kimball this week, the final Lenten Luncheon for the season will be held as always at the Presbyterian Church located at 600 west 7th street and hosted this week by the First English Lutheran Church and Kimball Baptist Fellowship Churches. A non-persishable food item is your entry fee and a free will donation is appreciated. Devotions begin at 12:10 wilh lunch served from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.

At the Midwest Theater in Scottsbluff this week, the Omaha Symphony Chamber Orchestra will be bringing the sound of music from the Mozart era into town. The concert will be held on Thursday, March 10 beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Well like I said, not a lot going on and I might add that I really don’t mind because there are always a dozen things like orthodontist appointments or something else going on also.Like my friend says, stay calm and have a piece of chocolate.

Have a great week and take care. Barb Cross (Mrs. Rod) at 436-7152, 641-1335, or
