New Commissioners Take Office Jan. 5

Good morning, saying Goodbye to 2022 and Welcoming 2023. Wishing a Happy New Year to your house from me.

This past year has seemed to fly by, especially the past three months. I have spoken with several people who feel this same way. Maybe this year life will settle down a little bit and calm down. That would be OK with me.

However, at this point who knows? For all of you who wanted a white Christmas, we sure had that!

I still am driving through a tunnel of snow in order to get to the house.

During Christmas break one of the kids was riding a side-by-side over the drifts and having a grand ole time.

We have been stuck more than once here lately, in the yard and in the pasture. Fun times for sure.

I really do hope that at the end of it there will be some moisture in the snowmelt; we all need that.

So here comes 2023, ready or not.

Another reminder that the folks in LaGrange welcome you to Family Karaoke Night and Ball Drop on December 30. This will be at the Community Center between 6 and 10 p.m. and the ball drop is planned for 9 p.m. I’ve checked this date several times and the 30th seems to be correct, not the 31st, so bringing in the New Year a little early, but that’s OK, right?

The Ignite Youth Group at Harrisburg Community Church will resume on January 11th, when the college students return from break, and there will be church services on the 1st. Everyone is welcome.

Although school does Not resume until January 3rd. there will be a home high school boys basketball game on Thursday, December 29th verses Hay Springs. More high school boys basketball on the 30th at 2 p.m. verses Cody-Kilgore on their home turf.

School resumes on Tuesday, January 3rd and more boys basketball. Both junior high and high school teams will play in Sioux County, and games begin at 4 p.m. Good luck to all of you and safe travel.

The next Banner County Commissioners meeting will be on January 5th at 10 a.m with the swearing in of the new commissioners. Everyone is welcome.

So I am assuming that soon after all of that, our lives will get back to a somewhat “normal” schedule. If such a thing exists.

So whatever is happening in your life, I wish you well.

Until next time stay safe. Barb Cross at 436-7152.
