Hello Hand Hills…..this weather is hold­ing up for the farm­ers and is mak­ing for a very nice Novem­ber. The crops are in the bins and it is truly a bless­ing with the weather that we have been given. Hope that we do not pay for it too much come win­ter.

I was over to the Neu Muehl Colony when they were fin­ish­ing up their har­vest and there were 8 JD Com­bines go­ing in one field when a neigh­bor­ing colony came to help fin­ish har­vest. That was quite a sight to see. The Farmer boss, Tom Entz, sure had his hands full or­ga­niz­ing all of those ma­chines and op­er­a­tors. Sure made quick work of a ¼ sec­tion field.

If they have their way, things will be chang­ing in the Hills. A Ger­man Com­pany wants to set up a So­lar Park in the neigh­bor­hood. A Pub­lic Con­sul­ta­tion is be­ing held at the Hand Hills Club­house on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 24, 2016 from 7:30 pm –9:00 pm. This is to dis­cuss the de­vel­op­ment of a So­lar Park on Coy­ote Lake Farm in Spe­cial Ar­eas 2. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Kronos So­lar Lim­ited will be avail­able to dis­cuss the pro­posal. Con­tact amanda.barderas@kronos-so­lar.com for fur­ther clarifications. Come and let your voice be heard.

That same night there is a meet­ing in Delia in re­gards to the wind Tur­bines. I will try to find out more in­for­ma­tion on that meet­ing.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Tyson White and Can­dis Ni­chols on their re­cent en­gage­ment. The Hand Hills is look­ing for­ward to the party! Tyson works for Echo Sands Ranch and Can­dis is em­ployed at Hanna Chrysler. They live on the for­mer Ce­cil Ernst place which is now owned by Doug and Helga Price.

Shiloh Ranch did it again! A few weeks ago the Hanna Cham­ber of Com­merce choose Shiloh Cat­tle Com­pany as the re­cip­i­ent for the 2016 Spirit of Agri­cul­ture Award. This past week they won at Far­mFair In­ter­na­tional 2016 in Ed­mon­ton. They are off to Agri­bi­tion next and this writer is sure their show cat­tle will con­tinue to do well. Con­grat­u­la­tions!

Come cel­e­brate the year at the Ranch­ers’ Ball this Satur­day. Phone and book your ta­ble and en­joy an evening out. Har­vest is done, calves are weaned, we had lots of rain, so it is time to kick up your heels and have a good time. If you can vol­un­teer please do so by phon­ing Day or Mar­i­lyn.

The monthly meet­ing of the Club is a week ear­lier than nor­mal due to the So­lar Park Meet­ing on Novem­ber 24. See you this Thurs­day, Novem­ber 17 at 7 pm. Please plan to at­tend.

Till next week…all the farm­ers have a big smile on their faces, so be sure to put one on your face too!
