Can you believe this weather? 80 degrees and no wind, it doesn't get much better than this. On March 13 at 2a.m. we go to Daylight Savings, then we can enjoy longer evenings of daylight.

Our communities would like to extend their condolences to the Delmas Beaman family and Shannon Votruba family on the loss of their loved ones the past few weeks.

Last Tuesday, Cora Coffman and I attended the funeral services for a dear friend, Doris Thompson of Lamar. She was a very fun and lovable lady and will be missed by many.

The Precinct Caucus held Tuesday evening at Plainview School was very well attended. The County Caucus will be March 21st at the Cobblestone Inn in Eads. Plan to attend.

Thursday evening, Susan Greenfield hosted a Pampered Chef party, given by Amanda Koeller. Guests were: Amy Schmidt, Cora Coffman, Rebecca Beason, Cynthis Lewis, Lori Healy and myself. Lots of good things to buy and food to eat.

Kelli Kern and fiancee Sonny, from Cheyenne Wells, were Friday supper guests of Cora Coffman.

Cora Coffman and Susan Greenfield went to Holly on Friday to attend to some farm business and then they did some shopping and ate lunch.

On Friday, the Plainview Junior High Knowledge team, consisting of Japhet Frey, Olivia Specht, and Kyle Scott with their coach, Ruth Fees traveled to Manzanola for a meet. They didn't place, but it was a great learning experience.

Evan, Jen, Layton, Julia and Lincoln Hopkins went to Woodston, KS over the weekend to visit with Jen's dad, Larry Poore.

Cora and I went to Colorado Springs on Saturday to attend the Regional Basketball Tournament at the Olympic Training Center. We saw some really good games, with 1 point being the deciding factor between winning or losing in several games. We certainly got our moneys worth of entertainment. Cora's granddaughter Jordan Coffman joined us for a couple of the games and lunch. The teams advancing on to the State Tournament are: Kit Carson boys and girls; Holly boys; Cheraw boys; South Baca girls; and Sangre De Cristo girls. Good Luck to all the teams.

Lexie Knutson, Quinton Weber and a friend, Madi came down from Denver on Sunday to visit with Quinton's dad, Jerry Weber.

We are glad to hear that Bernice Tuttle is home after spending several days in the hospital with pneumonia.

Last weekend, Freda Schmidt and Bryan, Dorcas and Abby Berggren traveled to Buhler, KS to see Jim and Esther Caywood. The Berggren's went on to Inman, KS to stay with friends, Russ and Lori Willems. On Saturday, Esther and Freda went to visit Freda's sister-in-laws, Ruby Schmidt of Hutchinson and Alice Schmidt of Heston. That evening, Freda, Jim and Esther attended the sub-state basketball tournament and watched the girls team from Elyria, where Esther teaches, win and advance on to state playoffs. They also watched the Central Christian boys team win and advance on to state. On Sunday, Bryan, Dorcas, Abby and Amanda Berggren and Mikayla Schmidt joined Freda Schmidt and Jim, Esther and Andrew Caywood for dinner and visiting.

The Sheridan Lake Bible Church hosted a Senior Citizen dinner Monday, March 7th. A large crowd attended and everyone enjoyed the good food and visiting. A very big THANK YOU to everyone who worked on this.

From March 10th at 4p.m. to March 21st at 8a.m., the Plainview students and teachers will be enjoying "Spring Break". Our grandson Kyle is going to Winfield, KS to spend time with his family.

Don't forget the Ladies Retreat at the Sheridan Lake Bible Church on April 1 and 2. Also, the 1st Annual Spring Fling/Craft Fair coming up on April 9th at the Plainview School.

Have a great week!!
