As of Tuesday, March 6, 2018
Well March came in like a lion and I think we have experienced every season we possibly could this last week. Hold on, spring is coming!
Correction from last week, the exercise classes are on Monday and Wednesdays, not Friday as reported before. Sorry for this.
Upcoming meetings and activities for this next week will be the SRAG will hold their meeting on Thursday, March 8, at 10 a.m., then on the 10th, they will be holding their March Mini Madness at Hoot’s Café. This all starts at 8 a.m., running until 3 p.m. Nothing more than $50, all from our local artists.
The evening of the 8th, starting at 6 p.m., the chamber’s open house will be at the IOOF Hall. This is for all patrons, organizations and businesses to come and voice your inputs as to what the chamber can do to help promote your activities, and maybe join the chamber and help make a difference in our town.

City Council meeting is on the 14th at 6 p.m.
Then, here it comes, Daylight Savings will be this Sunday, March 11. Remember to set those clocks ahead one hour and the days will start becoming longer.
The fire department had a training course last Thursday evening, holding a class on smoke mask usage. They also looked into a new fire truck, but now are facing a dilemma…they are looking for a place that is heated to store it in. Does anyone know of a place? If so, contact Brian Lowe or Rob Beeson.

TidBits: Top 10 reasons farm trucks are never stolen:
They have a range of about 20 miles before they overheat, break down, or run out of gas.
Only the owner knows how to operate the door to get in or out.
It is difficult to drive fast with all the fence tools, grease rags, ropes, chains, syringes, buckets, boots and loose papers in the cab.
It takes too long to start and the smoke coming up through the rusted-out floorboard clouds your vision.
The Border Collie on the toolbox looks mean.
They’re too easy to spot. The description might go something like this: The driver’s side door is red, the passenger side door is green, the right front fender is yellow, etc.
The large round bale in the back makes it hard to see if you’re being chased. You could use the mirrors it they weren’t cracked and covered with duct tape.
Top speed is only about 45mph.
Who wants a truck that needs a year’s worth of maintenance, u-joints, $3,000 in body work, tail-lights and windshield.
It is hard to commit a crime with everyone waving at you.
