Congratulations to Mikayla Schmidt on graduating from FHSU on May 13th.  Mikayla is living in the area and is working at the TBK Bank in Tribune, KS.

Weekend before last, Connie Weber was down to visit with her parents, Denis and Theresa Weber.  All of them attended the graduation at Plainview School on Sunday and the parties that were held after graduation.

In May, many teachers, families, and some friends of the school have attended three big banquets, a Kindergarten graduation, and the wonderful spring concert. The Academic-Athletic Awards banquet was especially outstanding where every teacher and head coach acknowledged high grade point students in their classes and the coaches related highlights of the sports year.

Irma has it figured out. She's a bona fide, egg-laying member of the "Production Red" hen sorority and she knows her rights.

This is really remarkable when you consider the braincase of your average barnyard chicken is wedged between some feathers and those big expressionless eyes and has about the same capacity for rational thought as that of an amoeba. But somehow this hen of mine has figured it out.

The sunlight triggers it, I believe. Sequential logic.

I don't really have any news this week. Between Mother's Day and Graduations, no one is home to get news from. Dick is home from having knee replacement surgery last Monday. Tom and I went back to Pueblo and brought him home on Wednesday and it's been a pretty rough time for the last few days.  He is getting sassy, so I think he's finally on the road to recovery. We had only been home on Wednesday about an hour when the big rain hit. I've heard of 2" to almost 4" in the area. Moisture is always welcome when it is not destructive.

Marvin Pincus is not the kind of guy to let spring slip through his fingers. Oh, when he was a young man, sure. But now, with the coming of spring to the world and autumn to his life, he'll take every chance that comes along to grab life by both hands and spur it into a run.

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.

When Harley Jacobsen came into Doc's office the other day for his physical it was a treat for Doc.

Harley is one of Doc's favorite people. Harley is a farmer. A 24/7 farmer.   Ol' Harley can make hair grow on a bald head and wheat grow on rocks.

When he'd been thumped and bumped and listened to and pumped up and partially drained, Harley asked Doc for the verdict.

"Not bad at all for someone your age, Harley," Doc said, grinning. "But you look tired.  Take some time off and go fishing or take Gladys to the beach."
