The big Creston ATV poker run is scheduled for Saturday, September 24 with signup from 9 A. M. 'til noon at the Community Building. Come and have a great time. It is a 44 mile ride on which one can see Blue Stem, turkeys, deer, squirrels, amphibians, great blue herons (when running the route one was seen with a fish in its mouth), rock formations, deep woods, oil wells and scenic fishing streams, etc. Along the route there are mud holes for those who want to test their chariots and a few places where the use of caution would be wise. There are sections where most riders have never been before. Of course there will be door prizes, food, 50/50, etc.

Folks are reminded that the big governor's special election will be held Tuesday, October 4 at a polling place near you.

Now the big eared one wants to have a second "stimulus" even though $10 billion of the first one must be spent by October 1. No doubt wise decisions will be made b y those who have the best interests of the nation in mind.
