Don’t forget to vote on or before Nov. 4. You can request a ballot in the mail if you wish to vote ahead of time. This is an important election. We have to watch that our freedoms are not eroding away while we think everything is fine.
Bräts & Brew Fest is coming up this Saturday, Oct. 25, at the Cottonwood Community Hall. A great time is planned and we have some really nice auction items courtesy of generous people in this area. A clock made from an old gear was donated by the late Ernie Jennings. It is one of a kind. A cooler full of beer, several metal art designs, a cowboy picture and 18 holes of golf are just a few of the items. Come and see for yourself. Advance tickets are $20 each. Reserve a table of eight for you and your friends. If you call for tickets ahead of time, you can pick them up at the door and not pay extra. Call the library at 962-3714 to reserve tickets or tables. See you there!
There have been wolf sightings recently south of East Road which is southeast of Greencreek. Witnesses report seven wolves in the pack. That many wolves could do a lot of damage to a herd of livestock. Ranchers don’t need something else to worry about.
Hasn’t the fall weather been beautiful lately? We could use some rain though. It would settle the dust and maybe put out the last of the forest fires.
