Corner Deli ‘awesome addition’

White Bird News

We are smack dab in the middle of our fifth fire season. Hopefully it’ll be done soon. That’s all I’ve got to say about that. The summer is coming to a close. School starts Aug. 27. For me, this summer has just gone by in a blink. I can’t believe we’ve already got to start thinking about a routine. Yuck.

Prairie’s harvest under way

Cottonwood News

Harvest started on the Camas Prairie this week. It seemed like all of a sudden it was in full swing. Eric Wassmuth was putting his new combine to the test. It is a New Holland with a 36-foot header. It seems to be doing a good job and makes short work of a field. Yields are good this year.
