Lots of people from our area took advantage of the opportunities they had to enjoy the County Fairs in Prowers, Cheyenne or Greeley Counties this past week.  Our grandson Kyle and I went to Tribune Saturday evening for the Ice Cream Social and parade.  Well, it rained on our parade - sheets of rain for about an hour.  They received around 2".  We had 6 tenths in Towner and it was certainly welcome.

Have you ever trusted in someone or something and been disappointed or let down?  The Psalm writer wrote in Psalm 20:7 "Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord of God."

Lee and Maxine (Peck) Blooding celebrated their 70th Wedding Anniversary with family and friends in Fort Collins Saturday afternoon.  The Bloodings organized the Prairie Queen 4-H Club in l948 so there are still some adults in this community who lovingly remember them and the life changing lessons they taught us.

Our communities would like to express their condolences to the family of Gerald Nix, who passed away recently.  Gerald was a teacher at Plainview School for several years.  From there, he taught in Tribune, KS, where he resided until a couple years ago, when he moved to California to be nearer his youngest son.  His services were Monday morning in Tribune, KS.

"Generosity isn't just about money. Giving, not getting is the way.  Generosity begets generosity", Jesus said.  So let's start giving to others and see what happens.

Once again, the 4th of July fireworks display; potluck dinner, parade and tribute to our flag ceremony were a huge success at the K A Hall in Sheridan Lake.  A large crowd of community members, bicyclers and harvest hands enjoyed the evenings activities.  A big thanks to everyone who made it possible.

Harvest is back in full swing again and most everyone is happy about the high yields, but not the price.  I can remember years ago when we would have been in seventh heaven for the yields and the price.  Such is farming!

Hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July. Normally we are deep into harvest on the 4th, but the rains have brought the harvest to a standstill. The moisture is great, but the farmers would rather it held off until harvest was over.

Recently, Jim and MaryAnn Richardson traveled to Oklahoma to visit Jim's brother Bob and wife Betty; grandson Josh Richardson and family, where they met their new great-granddaughter for the first time; son David and wife Linda and MaryAnn's brother, Dr. John Christiansen and wife Kay.

"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another".  Proverbs 27:17   The Lord allows our rough edges to be smoothed over through the sandpaper of life.

We welcome Pastor Mark and Deb Imel to Eads and their pastorate at the First Christian Church.  They moved here last week from northern Kansas.  Sunday afternoon they led the chapel service at the Weisbrod ECU and what delightful people they are with great singing voices too!
