Happy Birthday wishes to Ken Schultz on his 82nd birthday on August 22.

Dry conditions persist in our district, generating an early harvest this year. If the Byemoor ball tournament can’t bring on a rain, nothing can.

A note for those interested in astronomy — a total solar eclipse will occur on Monday, August 21 as the earth, moon and sun are in perfect alignment. Although the best views will be in the United States, the view here will likely be quite amazing as well, as the sun is blocked from view. The last time a total eclipse occurred was in 1979.
