Early Evening “Flash Flooding” In Elgin

August 1, 2014 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Trucks, cars and kids found several Elgin streets a bit trickier to travel on for a while. A sudden downpour, mixed with pea-sized hail, hit Elgin late in the afternoon.  Lasting about one half hour, street drains around town couldn’t keep up with the heavy rain (we received 1.80″ in our personal rain gauge) and several streets and sections of Highway 14 were under water for a while.  You can see a couple of more photos of the street flooding on our facebook page (The Elgin Review).

New Thrift Store Coming To Elgin

The recipe to running a successful business requires many ingredients, especially when that business is volunteer-based. Several Elgin ladies will be mixing together volunteer workers, donated items and shoppers looking for good items at very reasonable prices to cook up some profits to be given to various charities.
Scheduled to open in mid-August, Elgin’s Bargain Box will be located in the old Blair Motors showroom building.

Meeting To Decide Future Of Goose Lake

July 25, 2014 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

The public is encouraged to attend a noon meeting next Monday, July 28 concerning Goose Lake.
When the Nebraska Game and Parks took over management at Goose Lake, speed limits on the lake were lowered to 5 mph, effectively ending any water skiing at the rural Holt County recreational spot.
Many area residents learned to ski at the lake and would like to see it re-opened to the activity for families to enjoy once again - along with fishing.
Nebraska Game and Parks Director Jim Douglas and UENRD General Manager Dennis Schueth will both be on hand to address concerns and answer questions that the public may have.
The meeting will be held at Sunny Brook Café (north of Knievel’s Store) or 1 mile west and 1/8 mile north of St. John’s Catholic Church of rural Ewing.
