A large crowd attended the Snowcoming activities on Friday evening. The Plainview cheerleaders started out the evening with several rousing cheers. Then we heard from the ball players and their coach. After the pep rally, the Senior class held initiation for the students wishing to participate. Then everyone enjoyed a brisket dinner in the cafeteria. Dinner was followed by a bonfire out on the baseball field and more cheering. On Saturday, the day started around 10 am with basketball games with Plainview, Lone Star and Eads teams competing. At the beginning of the Plainview/Eads girls’ game, the parents and grandparents were recognized by their student in High School. At half time, they held the Senior Class/sponsor slave sale. At half time of the Plainview/Eads boys’ game, they had the crowning of the Snowcoming royalty. Benje Davis was crowned King and Brittney Wilson was crowned Queen. Cauy Stum was crowned Prince and Brianna Wilson was crowned Princess. Congratulations to all! The Snowcoming dance followed the games. Everyone had a good time.
Weekend before last, Linly and Sherell Stum; Monte and Linda Stum and Kirbi Stum's children traveled to Rocky Ford to help Elsie Janes celebrate her 5th birthday. Happy belated Birthday Elsie. Monte and Linda have been busy taking care of grandkids and traveling to Denver for the birth of their new granddaughter Taylinn Stum. Congratulations to Kirbi and Shay Stum on the arrival of their daughter, Taylinn.

A good scripture verse to guide you, Reader, in the New Year is: Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and He shall direct your paths.
Our communities extend their condolences to the family of Bernice Tuttle. Bernice passed away last Thursday in Sharon Springs, KS where she resided at the Nursing Home there. Bernice had called Towner her home for many years with her husband Harold and their family. She was my neighbor for the past several years. She was very active in her church and she and my mom never missed anything that was going on out at Plainview School for as long as they could drive and get there. She will be missed by many.
