Certainly been having a mix of weather lately. Sure glad we didn't get the terrible winds they had up along I-25. The ice this morning wasn't pleasant, but we do need the moisture.

Our communities would like to extend their condolences to the family of Cora Coffman, who lost her sister Cathy, this past week. Cathy lived in Illinois, but grew up in the Sheridan Lake area.

Welcome to 2017.  Don't know where 2016 went, but it surely seemed to fly by fast.  Maybe it's because I'm getting old and slow! The weather has been really cold lately.  I hope most of you survived and didn't have frozen pipes.  We weren't so lucky at the Community Hall, and we're still waiting on a plumber to come fix the broken pipes. 

Hopefully this week we will get everything taken care of.

"Happy New Year, Readers: Betty Shotton taught me one of my favorite songs, "Gentle Shepherd, come and lead us, for we need You to help us find our way"..."come to feed us...help us face another day".  Those words are my prayerful and hopeful prayer for 2017.

Lance and Taya Jagers took their children, Cassidy and Corbin, to the Arizona Annual Goat Show at the Arizona State Fair Grounds last week where they both place in the top four in the Show.

School is out for the holidays for most people.  This past week was filled with School and Church Christmas programs.  We also had the Christmas Holiday Basketball Tournament in Lamar, although the weather was pretty bad for people coming from a distance on Saturday morning.

Despite the cold, snowy weather on Wednesday, the Senior Citizen Christmas dinner at Plainview School was well attended.  The meal was dellicious and the 2nd and 3rd graders had made cute snowmen favors . 

Everyone had a very enjoyable time.  A big thank you to all that made it a very special occasion.

Psalm 37: 4 God wants to be good to you, so tell Him "the desires of your heart".  Then thank Him and the answer will come in His time!

There were two marvelous musical shows in Eads last week.  The first was on Thursday at Eads Elementary School Christmas program under the direction of Mrs. Monica (Fell) Uhland.  The Eagle's Nest Pre-School youngsters taught by Mrs. Jill Williams and Mrs. Kayla McLoud charmed the audience with their darling songs.

This past week was the beginning of basketball season for the Plainview High School boys and girls.  There was a large crowd that turned out for the games.  They host Lamar Monday evening and then are on the road the rest of the week.

The Christmas Craft Fair at Plainview on Saturday was well attended, with lots of different types of vendors offering their wares to the buyers.  I don't know about anyone else, but I hope this becomes an annual affair.  Congratulations to PCC for doing a great job.
