Congrats to Justin Hardy for earning third place in the state wrestling championship in 2A at 170 pounds. Great work, Justin!
And kudos to the Meeker High School boys’ basketball team for their conference championship this year!
Hooray! February — the month when business is slow and spring seems a long, long time away — is almost over.
What to look forward to in March? St. Patty’s Day, of course, on Saturday, March 17. By the way, if you don’t think leprechauns are real, we have one here in Meeker and we’re all hoping he makes another appearance this year.
This year the first day of spring, the Spring Equinox, will occur on Tuesday, March 20. Plan a spring fling! Sure, there will probably still be snow on the ground, but we can celebrate anyway, right?
Happy birthday this week to Taylor Merriam, Lindsey Miller and Alicia Watt, Feb. 23; Trina Cox, Feb. 24; Hadley Franklin, Feb. 25; Marian Merritt, Becky Meyer, Iola Hicken, Robby Jensen and Bill Kracht, Feb. 26; Katie Stewart and Clay Caldwell, Feb. 27; Matt Jensen, Denver Hayes, Melayni Wangnild and Hannah Borchard, Feb. 28. And a happy birthday to Leap Year baby Meg Bettis, wife of Herald Times publisher Mitch Bettis.
Celebrating anniversaries on Feb. 29 are Brad and Jessica Wikoff and Gus and Christine Halandras.
