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.

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.

"Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!" Psalm 8:1

After five days or more of cloudy rainy days, it was just glorious Friday to wake up to bright sunlight and to watch my gardener friend, Mike Arth as he moved his weed eater and lawn mower around my yards. The big clump of Grandma Jenny Crow's yellow roses are blooming early across from the City Hall, and all about town the irises that usually bloom in late May have been blooming since April as well as white spirea bushes are gorgeous about town.

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.

I Thessalonians 3: 12 "May the Lord make your love for one another and for all people grow more and more..."

April 27th was such an important day of other happenings in Eads America! For three days, leaders from the Northern Cheyenne and Arapaho Native American Tribes from Montana, Wyoming, and Oklahoma met at the National Sand Creek Massacre site.

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend.  I didn't have an article last week, because I didn't want to bother people when they had company and me and the Easter Bunny had other things to do.

Dick, Kyle and I joined my mom, Mary Huddleston; my brothers Mike and Larry and a niece Kerri Bayne and her family for lunch in Lamar on Easter Sunday.

Kelvin, Amy, Alex and Mikayla Schmidt and Freda Schmidt were Easter Sunday dinner guests in the home of Bryan and Dorcas Berggren.
