Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Blue Skies And Spring Is In The Air

Good morning Banner County! Blue skies and spring in the air, every few days anyway. Hopefully melting some of this snow.

This past week ended with the Super Bowl – yeah Chiefs! – and the potluck and annual meeting at the Harrisburg Community Church. Both local events were well attended with a lot of great food and conversation.

This week hopefully the Ignite youth group will meet on Wednesday, at 6 p.m., weather permitting. The school week will be a short one, but still active. Today, February 16th school will be dismissed at 1 p.m. to allow for parent/teacher conferences which will be held between 2 and 5 p.m. and between 6 and 8 p.m.

However, in spite of these, there will be high school girls subdistrict basketball and high school state championship wrestling matches. The state wrestling tournament is in Omaha the 16th to 18th.

For more information on the basketball playoffs, please call the school at 436-5262. There will be NO School on Friday – a p/t re-coop day – on February 17th.

The speech team will be busy over the weekend as they travel to Gering on Friday the 17th and to Hemingford the following day.

There will be NO School on Monday the 20th, but boys high school basketball subdistrict play will begin and continue on the 21st.

On Wednesday the 22nd, there will be MAC speech at Leyton.

We are sorry to hear of the recent passing of Warren Gifford and our condolences go out to the family. As I remember, he was a great wrestling enthusiast and Wildcat supporter.

Many places will be closed Monday the 20th in observance of Presidents Day, so do not be surprised if you have no mail.

The next Commissioners meeting will be on Tuesday, February 21st at 5:30 p.m.

The Steven Spielberg movie “The Fabelmans,” will be playing at the Midwest Theater on February 17 & 18. This 2023 Golden Globe winner is rated PG. Malxom X will play on the 21st at 6:30 p.m. He was an Omaha native who was assassinated February 21st, 1965.

Well folks, that is all for now. Have a great week and take care until next time. Barb Cross at 436-7152.
