  • Conversations with God

    Updated Sep 19, 2019

    Hello God, it’s me, Mara: You know, Lord, a long time ago there was a ‘story’ about the local economy in a small-town having troubles so they invited a successful businessman to come speak to them. Picture the scene: the ‘speaker’ places a large piece of white paper on an easel and makes a red dot in the center of it; then asked the group of folks, “What do you see?” One person responds, “I see a red dot.” The speaker said, “Fine, but what else do you see?” Others chimed in, “A red dot.” The speaker asked, “Don’t you see any...

  • CCHS off to 3-0 start

    Updated Sep 19, 2019

    CCHS took care of business against conference opponent Culbertson last Friday night at Rowley Field. Again, Blue's ability to run the ball offensively and stop the run defensively were paramount to victory.

  • Blood drive yields 24 units

    Updated Sep 19, 2019

    Last week’s blood drive in Ekalaka fell short of goal, according to coordinator Darlene-Carter Rose. The drive yielded twenty-four units of blood from 22 donors, one number shy on both accounts.

Both were factors that contributed to the drive not reaching it’s goal, Carter-Rose said. The drive was moved up one week due to scheduling conflicts. As of Tuesday, a door prize winner from...

  • HAT TIPS

    Dean Meyer|Updated Sep 18, 2019

    Hello, Did I ever tell you about my military career? If I did, I’m sorry, because you are going to hear about it again. You see, I was in the Guard. The National Guard. A long, long time ago. Back in the day. As cowboys say, “Back when the chutes were wood, and the men were steel.” Bob was, and is, a close friend of mine. Since we were both farm and ranch guys, we often partook in events following drill that made us a bit slow in the morning. I apologize, but it happens. One Sunday morning we were a bit tardy for roll call. N...
