Plans Complete for Cherry County Fair
Wednesday, 13 July 2016 15:01
Plans are complete for the 2016 edition of the Cherry County Fair and Rodeo the week of August 8th through the 14th, with the main run Thursday through Sunday of that week. This year's theme is "Kick Up Your Heels". Regular events are planned, including the trade show, stage entertainment, rodeo, parade, and carnival. New this year will be a very special exhibit, "Remember our Fallen", a traveling photo memorial of Nebraskans who have fallen in service to our country. Wild pony races and a wood carver are also some of the new features this year. Premium pamphlets will be out in the July 20th edition of Midland News. Also, at Monday night's meeting, the Valentine State High School Finals Rodeo Association presented the board with a check for over $12,000 which represented the remaining funds in their account. The money is earmarked for new restrooms on the south side of the rodeo arena.
Golf Course Update
Tuesday, 12 July 2016 09:15
The Valentine Golf Course Board met last evening to discuss progress on the new community golf course. Unusually heavy rain on a few occasions over the past year, have caused some erosion and run off problems which are being addressed on an ongoing basis. The wash out from the old city landfill is the first issue to be addressed with repairs and preventative measure being taken at this time. The construction is behind where it was expected to be at this time, but is still under the projected budget thanks to volunteers. The board will host a public showing of the course on July 24th from 11am until 2pm for anyone who would like to look. They will offer burgers and hotdogs and free putting on the practice green. The course will not be open for play. More information will be discussed with golf course board members on the KVSH Comment program this Thursday at 10:15.
At this time they are looking for some part time summer help at the course. Applicants must be 16 or older and have a valid driver’s license. All positions are subject to a veteran’s preference. Applications are available at city hall.
