Banner County News


Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather, if not a little on the hot side sometimes. I surely would rather hear complaints about the heat instead of complaints about the cold! Can you believe that it is July already? Too darn hot to be working outside unless you can get out there early in the morning. I need to clean out two chicken houses. So far the weather and my time have not cooperated.

I suppose that most of you have made some sort of plan for the 4th of July celebration. We have kinda-sorta. Do you know that feeling? It will depend on several situations and the fact that we all work the day before and after sure makes a big difference. I am pretty sure that there are celebrations everywhere, but for the life of me I could not find any information to pass on to you. I know LaGrange has fireworks on the 3rd and Bridgeport will have two nights of rodeo and fireworks that begin at 7:30 p.m. So all I can say is enjoy your day/evening and remember to thank our military for their part in keeping us free.

Here on the home front there will be a Baby Shower at the Harrisburg Community Church on Thursday, July 29th, TODAY from 9-11 a.m. for Carissa Marler. Baby girl is on her way!

Birthdays here this week include: Jayden Marx, Jerry Morris, Thea Mae Carlson, Bronson Smith, Rowdy Baker, Brady Jones, Tawanna Ansley, Jamie Farro, Mason Fulk, Kraig Baker, Tammy Brown, Benjamin Andrew McGowan, and Russ McKeehan. Happy Happy Birthday.
