Last minute memories

Flowers were set on the stage, ready for the traditional rose ceremony as 15 GHS seniors took their final steps to become graduates on Saturday, May 23. However, the day wasn’t all sunshine and roses as this year’s event was far from traditional. The coronavirus pandemic, which closed school and moved classes online since mid March, limited the crowd size […]

Book ends

Seniors took a final walk down the hallway at GHS last week as they cleaned out lockers and checked in books. Class valedictorian Hunter Eide (Shon and Gerri) smiled during his quick trip down memory lane through the school as he started the process to mark the end his high school career.

Pop of color

This bright oriole added a pop of color to a backyard on Commercial Avenue in Gettysburg last week. The Baltimore Orioles are in the area as the spring migration gives bird watchers lots to look at while feathered friends tour town. 

Walls going up

Wearing hard hats, safety glasses and vests, and masks, Rena Robbennolt and Kim Sheehan were some of the hospital steering committee members to tour the new Avera Missouri River Health Center in Gettysburg. On Monday morning, Wes Heinricy with Journey Construction  showed the small group the progress with the new hospital building. The rainy weather on Monday didn’t slow down […]

Window treatment

Little cousins Sam Lemler and Lane Cline, along with Sam’s aunt Shelby Lemler and Lane’s mom April Cline, visited Grandma Shari Bowden through the window of her room at Avera Gettysburg Hospital.

Folks driving around Gettysburg on Easter Sunday were egg-cited to find several decorations all over town. Between the Potter County Library bunny hop and the GIA egg hunt, windows and yards were filled with colored eggs to give families something fun to do by driving around and “collecting” Easter eggs by counting how many they saw. Even though the weather […]

Parade waves

Under the shadow of the American flag, Rolleen and Jerry Hauck, wearing winter jackets to fend off the chilly wind and face masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, waved at the line of emergency service members who drove past their home. Local law enforcement, EMTs, and firefighters drove through the streets of Gettysburg on Saturday afternoon, April 4, […]

Spring into action

Blue skies and sunshine were a welcome sign of spring on Sunday, March 29, as the temperatures reached close to 60 with virtually no wind. It felt like summer to kids who had been feeling cooped up with the school closure, so many put on their shorts and took to the streets to ride bikes, go for walks, play some […]
