Cottonwood News: Westoff retires from NICI after 30 years

What a welcome rain we had during the weekend! I know some of the farmers are not completely finished with harvest, but I’ll bet they don’t mind too much. The rain should help the fire situation. We live in the country with lots of fresh air. We should not have to breath the smoky air like they do in the cities. Some schools have already started and the rest will be starting soon. Where did our summer go? Good luck to those going off to college for the first time.
