June 25 late p Buckshot Butcher, see
June 25 late p thanks PT for
emailing over the Obit.
June 25 p We haven't heard a word on
Widen Days or even if it is going to be held this year. Not a peep. Please
email if you have up to date info.
June 25 p People are asking, why
didn't you post Buckshot Butcher's Obituary.
June 25 p Answer: we haven't seen one
June 25 p Weather casters issued a
flood watch Thursday evening for County Clay which was scheduled to last
thru June 23rd.
June 25 p The 23rd marked the
1 year anniversary of the Great Wash Out of 2016
June 25 p Keep in mind a "watch" is
far different from a Weather Service "warning". None the less,
Clayberry got all jittery just at thought of the possibility.
June 25 p Events were canceled
June 25 p True the Elk River was high
and muddy enough to plow, Saturday and today were perfect sun filled days
with low humidity.
June 25 p This week we saw the rebirth
of Clay County Development Authority (CDC). By laws were brought up to
date. The annual meeting was held and no one threw rocks or got in someone's
June 25 p With the fresh start, it's
now time to fill Board positions with capable, thinking people.
June 25 p Interested in helping the
county grow? CDC Board applications are available in their office
June 25 p We know, we know, a lot of
people lost nearly everything or everything, one year ago this weekend
during the flood.
June 25 p But! truth is, millions of
dollars came into the County of Little from the Feds.
June 25 p For instance, we need jobs
and new money for this place to grow. Before the flood, plans were in place
to tear up the old railroad tracks and create just a walking trail up Buffalo
Creek. That would be OK but in no way would a trail generate the tourism
dollars a steam train could generate.
June 25 p Since the flood and just
now coming together, it looks like several million FEMA dollars are on
the way to reconstruct the tracks, ballast, and bridges.
June 25 p With several miles of the
right of way to be rebuilt, the chances of building some kind of scenic
train ride are better than ever.
June 25 p 24 years ago when the BDA
was first formed, the first two projects were, create river access points
and build a steam train ride.
June 25 p Four access points were built
by BDA volunteers and DNR constructed two more but the train was
just too costly.
June 25 p Now, with Federal help, we
might get lucky this time around.
June 25 p With a train and or
rail car ride, access points for boaters and fishermen, Spread Park serving
as a hub for the activities, and the right promotion, we might just have
something to build on
June 25 p Enjoy the nice weather one
