August 31, 2011 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

The District 18 Board of Education will hear public comments on the proposed 2011-2012 budget prior to the start of their regular board meeting on Sept. 8.

Superintendent Steve Dennis said two public hearings will be held in connection with the proposed budget. The first hearing, scheduled for 7:10 p.m. in the distance learning room at Elgin High School, will be to hear public comments on the proposed budget. The 2011-2012 proposed budget calls for a tax requirement of more than $2.27 million for the general fund and just over $121,000 for the special building fund. Combined, the total tax asking would be $2,391,431.29.

Fans of Husker football will have the opportunity to attend a tailgate party here in Elgin on Sept. 24.

Words cannot express our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for all the prayers, phone calls, visits, cards, memorials and food given to us at the time of LaVern’s passing. We especially thank hospice and the staff at the Norfolk Veteran’s Home for the great care LaVern received while there. A very special thanks to Fr. Jim Kramper and Fr. Ross Burkhalter for their kind words and wonderful service. We were honored to have Mark and Julie Dwyer and the St. Boniface choir sing. A big thanks to the St. Boniface ladies circles 1 and 2 for providing the wonderful lunch for us. It meant so much to have the VFW post 5816 and the American Legion Post 229 provide military rites. We very much appreciated the St. John’s Christian Mothers for the snacks and refreshments after the burial. Finally, thank you to Tony Levander and staff. We were extremely impressed and touched by your professionalism and genuine concern for all of us.

And families

Many thanks are due everyone who thought of us in any way these past many weeks – we aren’t sure anymore just how many.  The last time life seemed normal was back in early spring.   What happened to the summer?

Thanks to family:  our wonderful children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren for your gifts and visits, and your love and help in so many ways.

Thanks to this community and beyond:  whether you remembered us with get well wishes, personal visits, delicious candies and baked goods, succulent garden produce, caring phone calls and hugs, or in your minds and hearts with prayer; we appreciate it all.

Thanks to the staff of area hospitals for your excellent care and concern:  Antelope Memorial, Faith Regional and Boone County Health Center.

Thank you.  May the blessings of the Lord be upon you.

Kenneth and Lori Krause
