Vandals turned their attention to Elgin over the weekend as a number of streets signs were either broken or stolen.
According to Antelope County Sheriff Bob Moore, 11 street signs from various locations in the community were vandalized or stolen sometime between midnight and 4 a.m. early Saturday morning. Replacement costs of the signs will likely make the spree a felony.
The City of Elgin is offering a $200 reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the damage and theft. If you have information, please contact the Antelope County Sheriff’s Department at (402) 887-4148 or message them through their facebook page.
Information may also be given to Vicki Miller at City Hall at (402) 843-5822.

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).

At Monday night’s Elgin Community Club meeting, Janet Koinzan asked the club to support an Elgin “wants” survey. Above is the survey she is distributing in the community. Please note: several of the items are events that are independent of the City and Community Club (ie Fly In Breakfast). Additional suggestions are welcome! Please print out and share….. UPDATE: You need to “right click” on the document and save it to your computer.

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.
