Albin News


Kids love puddles. The magnet between them and water is only enhanced with a little dirt. So it was surprising when the youngest Smith was happy to see the big perennial puddle at the end of 5th Avenue smooth and dry. Even without a maintenance person, the Town of Albin seems to function pretty well. The dumpsters are empty, streets are clear and the burdens that aren’t top of the list are maintained. However, as much as our councilmen are able to keep our town looking nice and functioning, it is not right or good to continue to tax their time without payment.

It is past time for us to find a full time maintenance person. Out of all of those folks who could benefit from a job, there must be someone who would be a great candidate for us. There are a couple houses for sale around town. Some young couple or perhaps an older person just looking for a new place to land. If the council can step up and volunteer to take care of the chores for a while, the least we can do is ask our friends for a couple of candidates. Think of it as a puddle, act like a kid and jump right in.

But you have to stop being a kid May 2, and exercise your right to vote. The Sixth Penny Projects are on the ballots as well as our council members terms and new members. You will need to stop by the community center in Albin to vote for our council and then head to a poll place in Burns, Pine Bluffs or Cheyenne to vote on the Sixth Penny Projects. Albin’s polls are open 8 a.m. until 7 p.m.

It wasn’t that long ago Kayla Krakow was a little kid busting mud puddles and hanging out in the community center kitchen. She has grown into a beautiful and kind young lady who celebrates a birthday May 3. Happy birthday, Kayla.

Sometimes all the parents get all most of the mud off their children and dress them as pretty as spring flowers. This will happen Thursday May 11 for the Albin Elementary Spring Concert which starts at 6:30 p.m.

The town council meeting will be after the concert, about 8:15 p.m.

Spring mud puddles dry up and the messy growing season moves on to outdoor living for a few months. Many of you have already stated cleaning up your yards. The Albin Cleanup Day is scheduled for May 13 from 9 a.m to noon. The council is encouraging anyone who wants to help to meet at the community center for coffee and cinnamon rolls on that morning. There are posters up at the center and post office for more information or call the town hall to see what will be accepted.
