NEW STORYWALK - It’s a joyful message anytime but especially in light of recent events as it celebrates the world's vast diversity from a kid's point of view! The children can start their Tuesday with the FREE Lunch Program at the Grade School at 11 a.m. and then walk over to enjoy the StoryWalk Kickoff! It will be up for 3 weeks, so if you can't make it Tuesday, you still have plenty of time to take the kids for a leisurely walk around the USD 254 Central Office block to read this beautiful book together!

IRS SCAM: is one of the scams now prevalent in the area. Please remember to never give out any important information or numbers over the phone, ever. Ask for a call-back number and seek advice from a trusted individual before answering any questions. If the caller is threatening or pushy in any way, just hang-up. Hanging up is not bad manners; it is protecting yourself against scams.

SATURDAY HOURS: NBCRC Wellness Center will now be offering Saturday hours of 8 - 11 a.m.

NOTICE: The Barber County Sheriff's Office is asking that if you need fingerprinted for Concealed Carry, Teacher, or for any other reason, please do not fill out the fingerprint card.

One day a week (excluding Saturday and Sunday) is all you would be asked to do. If you feel like you cannot commit to one day a week then sign up as a reserve driver or deliverer. If you should need to be off, someone will fill in. This is a wonderful service for our community and certainly helps people who do not feel like fixing a meal or just can’t because of health reasons. The saying "many hands make light work" certainly applies to this situation. Drivers need a valid driver’s license. Please call 886-3466 if you are interested.

Moran stops in ML

While on his Kansas Listening Tour, U. S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) stopped at Medicine Lodge on Thursday, July 21st and met with citizens at Hibbard’s Prescriptions Plus to listen to their concerns and answer questions.
