  • Wildcat Wyatt Reichenberg Wins Three Matches, Places Second At State

    Barb Cross, The Observer|Feb 22, 2024

    Good morning and welcome to the last day of February, seems impossible! We do have one extra day this year, so there is that. Congratulations to Banner County wrestler Wyatt Reichenberg for his 2nd place win at state! Does not appear to be much going on at the schoolhouse this week. However, tomorrow, February 23rd, will be a regular day of school with no sports, just to give everyone a breather. The Gering Library will host Board Game Night that evening at 6 p.m., and the Midwest Theater will...

  • Wildcat Wyatt Reichenberg Wrestling At State

    Barb Cross, The Observer|Feb 15, 2024

    Good morning! Lovin' Nebraska with flashes of near 60 degrees one day and 6 inches of snow the next!! This last blast of winter brought some pretty good moisture though, so that was appreciated. Interesting to see what the rest of the month will bring us. Here today, midway through February, the 15th, there is a Homeschool program out at the Wildcat Hills recreation area beginning at 10 a.m., and here at school there is an early OUT. Students will head home early for parent-teacher conferences....

  • Phil's Forecast Would Be Different In Nebraska

    Barb Cross, The Observer|Feb 1, 2024

    Good morning! It’s February but feels like May! Least for awhile, and how about that Punsutawney Phil? If he were here in Nebraska I do believe his weather predictions would be quite different, but I still have high odds for more winter. Safer that way. Well, here at home on February 1st we have the annual spelling bee at the school at 12:30 p.m. and everyone is invited to go watch. Also the high school wrestling team will be competing at a MAC conference tournament in Bridgeport. That evening the Western Nebraska Art Center will host an...

  • January Sports Winding Down For Wildcats During Our 'Heatwave'

    Barb Cross, The Observer|Jan 25, 2024

    Good morning! I hope you are enjoying this heat wave that we are having, nothing below zero, at least as  far we can tell for now. Personally I have never been very fond of January, partly due to the weather. After the 1st, it seems to go on forever! Even with all of that, it is hard to believe that this is the last week before February says “hello!”  However, starting this final week, tonight January 25, the Midwest Theater will host a musical comedy as the Three Redneck Tenors perform at 7 p.m. It also is Adult Anime Night for Adults...

  • Family In Nevada, Missouri & Oklahoma Getting Weather Like Ours

    Barb Cross, The Observer|Jan 18, 2024

    Good morning, and wow has it ever been cold! From here in Nebraska where we are accustomed to extreme weather, I have been in touch with family in Nevada, Missouri and Oklahoma – and they have all been experiencing weather much like ours. With that said, it still doesn’t make me feel much better about it all! Thankfully, I am one of the lucky ones who does not HAVE to go out, and I do not have animals that are out there and needing care. For those of you that do have to be out, please take care. I think that we are looking to have somewhat...

  • PUPPY LOVE

    Jan 4, 2024

    While out for a New Year's Day ride on her motorcycle, Claudyne Jones' daughter Shelly Myers stopped on a bridge by Broadwater to take a photo of her bike. Enjoying the view, Myers heard puppies yipping and barking below the bridge. She found three small cold and scared puppies. Eventually she was able to rescue them, and her daughter came to pick them up. They were taken to a rescue and found new homes quickly. By Tuesday afternoon, all of the puppies were adopted....

  • Trust Me, Big Horn Sheep Are Crossing Hwy. 71

    Barb Cross, The Observer|Dec 14, 2023

    Good morning! Wow, has that wind been getting after it, and the tumble weeds are not just tumbling, they are taking flight! I know we need the moisture, but personally I hope it holds off until the holidays are over. It would make travel a lot easier. Have any of you ever seen the Big Horn sheep that make the Wildcat Hills their home? I see them a lot, and have happened upon about a half dozen accidents involving them. Well, a few days ago as I was headed north, one of them streaked across Hwy. 71 headed west. He was really moving as he...

    Good morning! I have to say that so far December has been great. The sunrise Monday morning was stunning. Hope you were able to see it. After the snow on Sunday and my near miss with a stop sign, slush and ice, I definitely appreciate dry roads, and I am sure you do too! We are sorry to hear of the passing of Lyle Huffman, long time Banner County resident, and our sympathies are extended to his family. Here we go with another busy week.

  • GOTTA HAND IT TO THESE QUILTERS

    Daria Anderson-Faden, The Observer|Nov 9, 2023

    Ironically, all of the current Senior Center Hand Quilters picked up the hobby later in life. Gretta Shoenemann, in her mid-90s, picked up quilting about 20 years ago. She said they did a lot of hand work as a child, but quilting was not one of them. She started quilting after her husband passed away in 2001. Claude Jones, a regular senior center quilter, began quilting after she retired in 2005. Each individual stitch is hand-done through every layer, making the back of the quilt design almost...
