Attention Cattlemen: The Barber County Extension Office has just received the 2015 IRM Red Books. These pocket record books are an invaluable record keeping tool as well as having some excellent SPA performance analysis templates. There are a limited number of books and they are available free of charge on a first come, first served basis courtesy of the Barber County Extension Council.
Stop by the Extension Office to pick up your Red Books or contact Tim at (620) 886-3971 or tmarshal@ksu.edu if you have any questions.

NUTS: The Gyp Hills Pilot Club has a new shipment of nuts: pecans, walnuts, cashews, tropical mix. These may be picked up at the Lincoln Library. 620-886-5746.

LEISURE CENTER: The Leisure Center is reaching out to the community to ask for help in delivering meals and driving the bus. 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.

NOTICE: AA meetings are Tuesday nights at 8PM at the Presbyterian Church.

Whether a prairie flower or a wagon driver, a cowboy or a cavalryman, he would like to encourage everyone to write them down and give them to Jan Wade at the Lincoln Library.

NOTICE: To obtain a burn permit, go to the City Office before burning. There is no charge and it is good for 30 days. Also, please remember to call the Sheriff’s Department and let them know the address of where the burning will take place.
