Meridian Tribune

 

Hank the Cowdog, head of ranch security, heard that kids lose reading skills during the carefree summer months. Consequently, Hank will be in Bosque County all summer long on a mission to solve “The Mystery of Summer Reading Loss.”

Hank figures he has to make it easy for the kids to get good ol’ stories. So he got together with the local newspapers, The Clifton Record and Meridian Tribune, and they promised to print a chapter per week of a fun story. So look out for the first chapter of “The Kitty Cheater,” in next week’s paper.

Backyard chicken session Thursday

Kate Whitney gets up close and personal with a baby chick at Clifton Feed and Service Center last week in preparation for the upcoming Backyard Chicken brown-bag luncheon set for Thursdy, April 4.

This past week, only a couple of people showed up at Clifton Feed and Service Center for the seminar and so David Winkler and Kate Whitney decided that the best thing to do is put if off until Thursday, April 4.
