Banner County News


Good morning Banner County, friends near and far. What a beautiful fall morning it is.

November already and, of course, signs of Christmas have been in the stores for a while now. I keep getting these countdown days until Christmas on my computer and quite frankly, I do not want to know just yet. I am still working outside and just not ready for the hustle and bustle.

The varsity volleyball girls are preparing for district competition which will begin today, Thursday, November 3. I have no further information so please call the school at 436-5262.

Sunday, November 6, we end Daylight Savings Time for another six months. Boy, am I excited about that one. I can’t wait to have more dark to work in in the morning and evenings that begin at 4:30 in the afternoon and go on forever. Yep, and they say that we all need the sun in our lives to keep us from being depressed. So let’s take away the daylight. It makes me depressed just thinking about it! Fall back one hour on Sunday and you won’t be late Monday.

Monday , November 7, the junior high wrestlers will be traveling to Lingle for matches that will begin at 2 p.m. and Tuesday, November 8 is the day we have all be waiting for, Election Day.

The FFA students will be selling goodies as a fund raiser in the courthouse lobby. Is it just me or has this been a really odd political race? In my lifetime I do not remember a non-politician running for office of the President, nor a candidate that is not in prison for acts that if committed by you or I would result in just that...prison. Weird, but not so much that it will keep me from voting and I hope it won’t hold you back either.

We are thinking of Marvin Thompson and wishing him well and glad to hear that Ruthie Brown is on the mend.

Birthdays this week include Justin Bright, Judy Heilbrun, Larry Hopkins, Alan Elsen, Rick Caudillo, Denny DeNovellis, Tristan Talkington and Tawnie Kling. Happy Birthday!

Anniversary congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Terry Brown, Stan McKnight and Jordan Knaub.

Safe travel and good luck to the volleyball teams and junior high wrestlers.

Friends of the Kimball Library will host “Wine, Chocolate, and Coffee” at the Kimball Event Center on Saturday, November 5. This event is open to the public from 5-7 p.m. Once inside, you will sample Nebraska wines, fair trade chocolates and fair trade coffees.

Veteran’s Day is fast approaching and the students at Kimball will present a program in the high school auditorium on Wednesday, November 9 from 10-11:30 a.m. Banner County students will honor Veterans on November 11 and I will provide that information next week.

Although the month of November is barely getting started, the holiday craft shows have begun. Nice for early shoppers.

Friday hours will be 5:30-8 p.m. and Saturday hours will be 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. No cost to shop.
