  • Kiowa County Commissioners met in regular session. No budget cuts are planned for 1999 county budget.
  • Wild Horse Roundup- Curtis Schrimp: Marty and I found a balloon in the trees in the creek with the name Britany. Wish she had put from where it came from so we could see how far it traveled.
  • Nursing Home News- Nellie Nickert: The nursing home is taking full advantage of the dentist in Eads. Don’t be misled because he is willing to serve in a rural community, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have his hands on the latest equipment.
