Cold temperatures, wind and snow greeting the Elgin area today (March 1st). One event (PJCC Speech Meet) was cancelled but the little kid’s wrestling tournament went on as scheduled with a good turn-out! Maybe the “February thaw” will be coming for us in March! E-R photo

The Q125 history book is almost a done deal for Elgin. The book committee will be receiving their final proof from the printer any day now to give their okay to. Once it has been received the green light, they will be providing the printer with the number of copies to print.
If you have sent in your form and payment, everything is set for your book.
On the other hand, if you haven’t sent in your payment (with the form from the brochure) its almost too late!
The committee will receive final orders with payment until Friday, March 7, 2014. If payment is not received by this deadline, any unpaid order will be disregarded.
A very limited number of extra copies will be ordered above the number of paid books on file. If you haven’t paid and reserved a copy, the extras will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis and once they are gone, they are gone since this is a limited edition.

Another large donation has been received for a new community sign here in Elgin.
Anne Parks, secretary of the Elgin Community Club, announced Monday night that the Richard Kalvelage Trust has awarded the club $2,500 for the purchase of a new electrical sign. The announcement was made at the February meeting of the community club.

A truck hauling a car caught on fire shortly after 11 a.m. this morning. EVFD responded to the call at 11:15 and spent just over an hour on the scene. Truck owner, Ron Hoerle of Chambers, was near the Wheeler/Antelope county line on Highway 70 when he noticed a fire inside his cab. According to EVFD Chief Jim Kittelson, Hurley attempted to put out the fire himself. The FD quickly got the fire extinguished upon arrival and monitored the dry grass in the area to make sure no grass fires were smoldering. Kittleson believes the fire started in the electrical wiring and he stated that the truck was totaled.
