10 YEARS AGO (Taken from the Thursday, Aug. 24, 2006 issue of the Hancock Record.) Buddies Bar and Grill may be just one step closer to opening in Hancock. That is after the Hancock City Council approved a building permit for the new business last week. The Hancock School Board has decided to take a wait and see approach to sports pairing. the board discussed the possible pairing arrangement at their regular meeting and decided not to take action right now but rather to continue to monitor the numbers and look at it again when they see a trend warranting pairing.
Last spring I took on another job, doing summer cleaning at the school. I had no idea what I would be doing through this job but on the first day they had me washing windows which was kind of what I did for the next several days. On the last day of school, the teachers and students move most of the lighter items in the classrooms out into the hallway. Then the janitors, along with the summer help, moved the larger items out. Soon everything in the classroom was out in the hall.
It's fair time again. I have listed my items to bring. As things change over time, so does entering items in the fair. We now send a list by computer to the Extension Office and a list is sent back by email.
The warm summer day, the sound of deep fat fryers sizzling, cotton candy spinning and the smell of popcorn and mini doughnuts...it's fair time. No matter what your age or what your budget is, a day at the Stevens County Free Fair can be a great one. This is a very busy time for 4-Her's, and their parents( I remember,) but also a very fun time. If you would like your child to learn more about the 4-H farm animals go to one of the shows or ask one of the 4-H kids. They are usually happy to introduce you to their own animal and answer any questions you may have.
Hancock is just down the road from Cyrus where Hilary Lindor grew up. In fact she spent a great deal of time in Hancock but never imagined she would be teaching there one day. Lindor's parents are Larry and Heidi Lindor. She has a sister, Nicole and brother Andrew who played Legion baseball with the Hancock team thus bringing the family to Hancock for games quite often. She attended school at West Central Area and graduated in 2012.
Where will all the water go? That was a question the Hancock City Council had to answer, or attempt to answer, at their meeting Monday night. The water in question was in the Eastview Addition where road work is set to begin later this week.
Toward the end of July, my husband and I spent a great deal of time with our grandchildren. We had them at our house and we also spent time with them at their homes or campers. It was a wonderful time, filled with great memories.
