State Basketball was on the minds of many folk last week-end. Our Lady Eagles played three days in the State meet. Our neighbors, the Kit Carson Girls are the State Champions as well as the Holly boys are the Champions. The Kit Carson Boys team won over Fleming Saturday for third place.

The Lamar girls are also State Champions. They are coached by Erik Melgosa an Eads graduate.

Can you believe that we will be turning our clocks ahead next Sunday to Daylight Savings Time and Spring is just a couple weeks away.

We've already had quite a few Spring days, hope we don't have too many wintry days come Spring.

Around 50 friends and family gathered at the Eagles Lodge last Saturday to help Mary Huddleston celebrate her 95th birthday.  A nephew and two nieces from Topeka and Hutchinson surprised Mary when they arrived to help her celebrate.  Mary would like to thank everyone who came and helped make it a very special day for her and for all the cards she received in the mail.

"Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith." I Corinthians 16: 13 The best way to escape temptation is to run to God.

The Weisbrod Hospital Auxiliary members had their business meeting and lunch at J J's Ranch House in February. They will be meeting on Wednesdays rather than Tuesdays in March 8th and April 12t at 11:00 a.m. since the J J's owner, Jennifer Schofield, will be having cancer treatments on Tuesdays. This is the reason J J's will be closed on Tuesdays for a while.

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves."  Philippians 2:3    

Random acts of kindness:  I saw Jo Shoemaker on Valentine's Day, when she was handing out pink and red bags to people along Maine Street.  They contained a pretty pink glazed heart-shaped sugar cookie that she had made.   What a sweet treat!
