Haigler Happenings - July 5, 2010

Haigler was blessed with around an inch and one half of rain over the week-end.   The cooler temperatures were also welcome.  On Sunday evening the fireworks being set off from the ground around town were challenged later by the flashes of lightening and the booming thunder from the sky.
The wheat harvest began for some farmers last week but the week-end rains put a stop to that for a few days.  For them the rain was not especially a blessing in that respect.
Dwight Wall came down from Lewellen, NE to visit his mother, Laura Pearl Wall during the week-end.  They took a long drive on some country roads as far as Chase  County, seeing country they had never seen before.  MerryLu and Bob Simmons stopped by for a few minutes on Sunday then went to Denver to visit their family there.  MerryLu had been over for a visit with her mother on Tuesday.
Lois Zuege's daughter, Lori, and granddaughter, Rikki, from near Nashville, TN are here with Lois.  Her son, known as Shorty, will be coming in a few days.  There will be a graveside service at 11:00 A.M. at the Haigler Cemetery on the 10th of July; which would have been Stan's 90th birthday.
Albert, Jr. and Ginny Zuege visited Sophia during the week-end.  Laura Pearl had dropped by a few times during the week. 
The Faylors have been visiting family in Kansas, returning home on Monday, the 5th.  Others have taken advantage of the long week-end to celebrate with families elsewhere.  More details next week, hopefully.
Sherri, the Haigler Blogger, posted an interesting message from Tom Wall who resides in California.  Those of you who have access to the internet can read it on the Haigler blogspot -  or ask someone to get it for you.  He ends his message with these lines: Please write more in the Haigler Blog, I would like to know what has happened to the folks from the class of 66, 67 & 68, and their families. I have noticed from photo's that many buildings are gone. I'd like to know who is still there and who has moved on. Take care everyone , I'll watch the Blog. Tom Wall.  (Maybe he needs to subscribe to the local paper.)
News items are needed to keep the Haigler Happenings alive.  Call 297-3605, drop off at 338 Wasington Ave or e-mail


  1. O.K. I'll bite!
    What local paper?
    I hope this isn't another invite to a snipe hunt!
    Why can't someone take a minute to answer some of my questions in the comments? The barber shop was gone the last time I came by, so I know your time isn't tied up in watching haircuts.
    All the best to you, Tom Wall

  2. I think she means The Benkelman Post OR The Wray Gazette OR the St. Francis Herald where Haigler Happenings is published every week.

    I have found that people read the blog, but very seldom leave comments. I too would like to hear more comments.
