Avenue of Flags Cancelled Nov. 11

Display of the Johnson County Avenue of Flags on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, 2019 has been cancelled. The Veterans Day display has encountered bad weather in recent years and has had to be cancelled at the last minute. This continually causes unnecessary expense and confusion for the Auxiliary ladies who serve the morning and evening meals.

At the March 2019 meeting of the Memorial Committee, the situation was recognized and it was approved to display additional days at Memorial Day and 4th of July to compensate and allow viewers more time to pay respect to the Memorial Flags of the deceased Veterans.

Sterling 4-H Club Cleans Headstones to Honor Veterans Buried in Cemetery

Sterling 4-H Club Cleans Headstones to Honor Veterans Buried in Cemetery

The newly organized Sterling 4-H club, a combination of Spoons & Spools and Sterling Livestock, met on a blustery Sunday afternoon to work on a community service project designed to honor Veterans who are buried in the Sterling Cemetery.

Over time, as headstones are exposed to the elements, they have a build up of moss, lichens, and mold. The group used water, D2 Biological Solution, and some elbow grease to remove the build-up and whiten the stones. This same cleaner is used in Arlington National Cemetery to keep those headstones white. They did a final spray of D2 before leaving which will continue to work until rinsed off by rain and snow. The group plans to return in the spring and continue working.

Boldt Family and Friends Enjoy Hunting Seasons on the Farm

Boldt Family and Friends Enjoy Hunting Seasons on the Farm

Saturday, October 26 was a beautiful fall day for the 2019 Opening Day of Hunting Season. Reds, tans, browns, greens and gold painted the beautiful landscape on a bright sunny day as area hunters, dressed in orange caps and vests, walked through the timber and cropland to hunt for quail and pheasants along their path.

Approximately 15 family members and friends entered God’s country as they gathered at the Boldt Family Farm near Sterling on Saturday to participate in the traditions of hunting, sharing stories and enjoying the camaraderie of opening day of the bird hunting and deer hunting seasons. Galen Boldt and his nephews, Luke and Levi, invite their neighbors, Ron and Larry Rathe, their children and grandchildren and other friends and relatives, to share in the hunt and the spontaneous fun and laughter.
