We received this info from Brandon Brogan:

"A memorial service will be held for Carolyn in the pavilion at Grace Lawn Cemetery on Saturday, August 4th at 10 AM.  There will be a reception held for family and friends in Howard after the service, the location of which has yet to be determined.

Family and friends wishing to attend should RSVP by Friday, July 20th in order to accommodate them and their families.  Please be sure to specify if you will be attending the reception as well as the funeral.  Please contact Brandon Brogan via email at to RSVP and for expressions of sympathy."

We got this request from Barbara Thompson from Denver:

Dear Elk County Forum,

I am hopeful that you may be able to assist me in locating work by an
artist - Arthur W. Hall (1889-1991) who resided in Howard, Kansas
from 1922-1942. Hall was an artist who supported himself and his
wife (also an artist) Norma Bassett Hall, with the sales of their art work
and also his salary from his work as a court reporter for the 13th Judicial District.

I am writing a catalog about Hall which will accompany an exhibition
of his work in 2016 at the Wichita Art Museum.

From old letters and news clippings I know that residents of Howard as
well as others in nearby towns purchased his paintings and prints.  I am
hopeful that some of these prints still remain in family collections and
that their owners might lend them to the exhibition and/or to be photographed
for the catalog. Titles of some of the prints - Fleak Farm, Jontra Farm and
Pond at Severy might be familiar to Elk County residents.

The other pieces of Arthur Hall's history in Howard that I am hoping to
find are: photographs of the home he rented - 194 North Pennsylvania,
possibly the name of the home's owner, and any information that might
confirm which building he rented in downtown Howard for his art studio.

Thank you. I have pasted a few examples of Arthur Hall's etchings below.
The Howard Library also has several of his prints on display.

Please contact Barbara if you have any info.

I'm sure it's just me, but have the birthday dates gone from the calendar? Also, isn't Thanksgiving on the 28th this year? Maybe it's just the east coast air.

Upcoming birthdays are only visible on the forum index page at the bottom.

As you probably have noticed, we have changed the layout of the forum.

The reason for this has to do with a software upgrade and the old design was not compatible.

Features are the same as before, plus that we have added an ignore or buddy list:

Buddies/Ignore List

Inevitably, there will be times when members get along great and times when personalities clash. This forum provides a way to handle both instances. The buddy list allows members to keep track of users they enjoy talking to, while the ignore list hides users they do not want to see.

    Edit Buddies - Members may add or delete other members from their buddy list.
    Edit Ignore List - Members may add or delete other members from their ignore list.

You can maintain this list in your profile.

Facebook and Twitter Icons

If you want to post a link to your Facebook or Twitter page, this can now be done in your profile settings. Adding your ID will enable an icon to show up under your avatar in your posts and your profile page.

If you have any questions, let us know.

To every member of this forum~
Teresa and I have noticed an increasing number of posts where things are getting a little too personal. This occurs for the most part in the political section and now is occasionally running over into other threads and topics. The whining and sand box fights are happening on both sides of the aisle, and more and more are becoming involved and getting their 2 cents thrown in, in a negative manner.  As forum owners, this means we have to spend time being babysitters to a bunch of sand throwing "adults". And frankly, I'm not liking it much.

I realize that politics can become personal and very emotional. Heck, I deal with this every day in my job, so I DO understand!  I also feel frustrated and emotional many times on issues and the personality's surrounding them.  I also realize that some individuals spend most of their social life online either by being themselves or living out a different persona simply for entertainment value, which also includes stirring the pot. Then when the pot starts boiling over, they stand back and cry foul. I also realize that if you clash with a certain person or personality,  anything they say can get under your skin. But we ARE adults!  Each of us need to filter through all this and sometimes, as hard as it may be, simply ignore the people who get under our skin. There are those that nitpick and jab ..and there are those that continually whine and play victim.. BOTH are detrimental to what this forum was supposed to be about. I built it and gave it to this county to be used for a fun and informative place to share, gather, debate, talk and find out what is happening on a local level and a national level. We have had many people tell us that without this forum, they would never have been properly informed of what is happening in and behind the scene in our community and county. We also have people telling us that it is getting way too serious and cut throat, and the bickering and whining has driven them away.
Regardless of differences on topics, please NO PERSONAL ATTACKS ON A PUBLIC FORUM! Post what you want in the manner you want and debate, argue, disagree...but leave all the slander and personal name calling and the "you said it to me so I'm going to say it back to you" crap out of here.

Do not make personal attacks anywhere on our forum. Comment as much as you want on content, but not on the contributor. Personal attacks do not help make a point; they only hurt our community and deter users from reading and posting. I don't like to do this but I will. Derogatory comments about another contributor may be removed by any moderator. Repeated or egregious personal attacks may lead to blocks or banning of all parties involved or in the worst case, closing the entire forum.

Thank you,
Kjell H

We had some issues with our main server for a few days. Decided to install a new drive and a new operating system.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Yes, there has been some clean up and I think I made mention of that in my post.
