Earth Day is a nationwide celebration held on April 22 that promotes environmental goodwill throughout communities and emphasizes the importance of protecting our environment and natural resources.  The Natural Resources Conservation Service Earth Team is a volunteer program that uses volunteer time, talent and energy to help accomplish the NRCS mission of helping people help the land.  This year marks the 12th year celebrating Earth Day through the local NRCS Office with Earth Day Coloring Contest Worksheets.  This year focus was on Colorado Agriculture and the top 10 Commodities of which Cattle/Calves is number one.


Haxtun BOE makes cuts to balance budget Some difficult decisions were made around the table at the most recent Haxtun Board of Education meeting. Due to continued cuts in State funding and the negative factor, Haxtun School District was forced to come up with at least an extra $180,000 to operate and maintain a budget for the coming school year. It is estimated that the Haxtun School District has lost $300,000 per year over the past few years in reductions in State funding due to the negative factor.


Svoboda charged following Logan/Phillips Fire On March 6 numerous local fire departments, law enforcement personnel and first responders responded to a large grass fire that due to very high winds quickly spread over 32,000 acres. This grass fire burned numerous homes, out buildings, vehicles and farm equipment in both Logan and Phillips Counties. Although we are very thankful that no human life was lost in this fire, hundreds of cattle along with other livestock and wildlife died or had to be put down as a result of this fire.
