This year, recently, I have been thinking of even more for which I a...

    The Kimball junior high winter sports is still underway and entertaining you fans, but the Kimball High School sports is ready to bust loose this next week with the basketball teams headed to Gering and I am not sure what format they will use. I know last time we went it was more like a scrimmage with no score kept on the score board, or in the book. The teams wore their practice uniforms and unless you knew the players, you were in the dark as to who was doing what. The girl’s game will start at 5:30 this Monday-November 26th, and the b...
