Come get your wood chips! They are for your use if you need mulch for your trees, gardening or landscaping. They are from the trees being removed along Highway 63 as part of the Alvo North reconstruction project. Thank the Nebraska Department of Roads for donating them to the people in Alvo.

   

Nebraska had the first tornado warning over the weekend - near Thedford. We are now in the spring severe weather time, so pay attention to TV, radio, your cell phone, tablet or desktop. Invest in a weather radio with a battery backup for those power out situations.
