The Elk City slide on State Highway 14 as it looked last week.
As of Tuesday, March 1, 2016
ELK CITY The community also owes a debt of gratitude to the individuals listed below for helping get the groceries into the store last week: Dave Anderson, Justin Anderson, Mark Thornton, Kim Rendleman, Debbie Rendleman, Bob Taylor, Debbie Taylor, Todd Armstrong, Mary Armstrong, Shelby Armstrong, Maddie Armstrong, Phil Ruzicka, Sage Stibal, Darrell Vanderbur, Cobie Allen and Randy Phillips.
Eric Nitz and Teddy Manes have been helping with bringing the freight in from Josh’s warehouse as well including bread, chips, liquor and pop. They deserve a big thank you also. Mark Thornton and Cheryl Sims brought the store’s beer order in on Wednesday along with everyone else’s.
Free Movie Night at the Elk City Baptist Church, War Room – Prayer Is A Powerful Weapon! From the award-winning creators of Fireproof and Courageous comes War Room, a compelling drama with humor and heart that explores the power that prayer can have on marriages, parenting, careers, friendships and every other area of our lives. Everyone is invited to have an enjoyable evening out at the movies. Free movie, popcorn and fun, Saturday, March 5, at 6:30 p.m.
Call or e-mail and encourage the county commissioners, as well as ITD, to create a bypass on Highway 14 around the slide once the apartment-sized rock is safely removed. We know that the alternate route we are now using will not hold up much longer. The following are the commissioner’s e-mail addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org. ITD has made a route over the slide, possibly just for equipment movement, although there is no ramp as of yet on either side going down to road level (see photo). Looks like they are starting to remove trees from the top of the slide (see photo).
Kim, the vet, is scheduled to come up on March 8-9. Guess that will depend on the road issues. Give her a call.
Don’t forget the community Easter dinner is in the works for Easter Sunday, March 27, from 3-5 p.m. at the VFW Hall.
Meetings: EMT on March 8 and American Legion on March 9.
Birthdays: Jessica Boyd, Remi Hunt and Alie Carpentier.
