Our communities would like to extend their condolences to Plainview School Superintendent, Melissa Parks and family on the loss of her Mother and Uncle over the past few weeks. They both lived in Oklahoma.
Sorry about no news last week. We didn't have any power from Sunday morning to Monday afternoon due to the snow storm that hit our area. It seemed like everything I went to do on Sunday, took electricity. We take so many things for granted until we don't have them.
Week before last, Plainview Prom was held at the KA Hall in Sheridan Lake. Around 65 people enjoyed a delicious dinner and dancing. The After-Prom party ended early due to the incoming storm, but everyone had a good time that evening.
Cora Coffman went to Cheyenne Wells on Friday to watch her great-grandson Weslee Kern in his track meet. She spent the night and attended the track meet on Saturday to watch her great-granddaughters, Kadence, Ilee and Brystn Kern compete.
Weekend before last, Carol Shalberg and her daughter-in-law Linda Shalberg went to Las Cruces, New Mexico to watch her grandson Dalton Shalberg play ball. Dalton pitches for New Mexico State University. They had a hard time getting home due to all the road closures from the storm. This past Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Carol attended track meets in Cheyenne Wells to watch her grandsons, Kyler and Case Shalberg compete.
Last Tuesday, Vern and JoAnn Harris were in Las Animas and their great-grandson Ryker Pryor came home with them to spend the night. On Wednesday, his mom Trista and brother Reagan came to spend the day visiting and took Ryker home with them.
Cheri Hopkins attended the Loyalty Day Livestock Show in Tribune this past Saturday. Her grandson, Layton Hopkins was showing his steer and heifer. On Thursday, Cheri went to the Elementary track meet in Cheyenne Wells.
Dawna Peck and Susan Greenfield went to Garden City to do some shopping on Friday. That evening, Susan joined Jeanie Smith and her mom and grandmother for supper at Shorty's in Granada, Colorado, to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
Linly and Sherell Stum; Lane and Tammy Stum; Chris and Jennifer Stum and children; Jay and Tara Stum and children; and three of Misty and Sean Harkness's children enjoyed fishing at the Holly Pond on Sunday. They caught a bunch of fish.
The High School Track team and their coach traveled to Limon for a track meet on Saturday. They will be going to the Holly Track Meet this Friday. Baseball playoff games are going on now for a state berth. We wish all of them the best of luck. Kyle informed me there are only eight school days left.
Dick and I are traveling to Pueblo real early in the morning. He is having knee replacement surgery at 8:00 a.m. Monday morning.
Have a good week!
