Community Builders,

The NWK KS Leadership Center team is scheduling three NW Kansas Leadership Skill-building Workshops at the end of March in Bird City, Colby and Goodland. These workshops will include introductory leadership skill-building concepts by KLC teachers and coaches. These workshops will also address the logistics of establishing leadership training programs, choosing curriculums and measures to sustain leadership training into the future.

The dates, times and location of these sessions are:
Tue., March 30, 8:30 to 11:30 AM, Goodland at Northwest Technical College (Lyons Room)
Tue., March 30, 3:00 to 6:00 PM, Bird City American Legion Hall
Wed., March 31, 3:00 to 6:00 PM, Colby Community College (Room 106)

Please spread the word regarding the opportunity to obtain leadership training in the future. I personally believe that the leadership classes held from 2007 to 2012 in Cheyenne County helped initiate growth and positive activity in Cheyenne County in the last 15 years. I hope you will join this new effort to re-establish leadership training in Cheyenne County and northwest KS!

Take this opportunity to learn new and improve your existing leadership skills. If you enjoyed the previous leadership classes, take advantage of these professional workshops in our backyard. Teachers and coaches are traveling from Wichita to lead these workshops.

Practical Application of the Qabalistic Tree of Life
The Tree of Life has long been a tool for Spiritual growth and understanding but its comprehensive symbolism can be applied to any arena. In this analysis we will focus on the subconscious and work through how this ancient system can help heal that dark and rather scary place within all of us.

First we will overview the Golden Dawn interpretation of the Tree to understand how the various components evolve and interact. We will start from the bottom because that is where the process starts for
RURAL OPPORTUNITY ZONE (ROZ)
The Rural Opportunity Zone or ROZ was originally established by the Kansas Legislature as a tool to increase population in Rural Areas of the State.

The Cheyenne County Board of County Commissioners authorized participation in the Student Loan Repayment Program for Calendar year 2021 via Resolution No. 21-05.

At this time, Cheyenne County does not offer financial assistance for the program, but allows Cities, Employers and Foundations within Cheyenne County to participate in the program.

Sometime last year, many of us felt the crushing weight of social injustice as George Floyd’s life was extinguished in front of a crowd, slowly and painfully by those officers sworn to serve and protect the public. It was the last straw for many, after Eric Garner, Sandra Bland, Breonna Taylor, and so many more suffered needless deaths at the hands of law enforcement. It heightened the emotional subject of racial disparity and discrimination, to a recognition of
Amendments to the Kansas amusement ride act which could affect carnival rides at the fair.
House Bill 2389 is scheduled to be heard, I think on Thursday and Friday in Topeka. This may or may not affect the carnival rides at the fair, but looks like it may. I would suggest people contact Representative Adam Smith and maybe e-mail any concerns, so this doesn't have a negative affect on the community.

Here is a link to the information page on the Kansas Legislature site:

Hand Woven Textile Show at Quincy Street Gallery
If you are like me and love to see the symmetry of the very small then you will be delighted when you go into the Quincy Street Gallery. Every woven piece has a different woven pattern, each is perfect, whether it is one color or many, each piece is a mastery of intricate symmetry. Textiles must be seen close up and felt to be truly appreciated. Give your skin and your eyes a treat, a few hours just for them. They work hard for you, right? Check out the display from the Topeka Hand Weavers. Se
Our Afternoon at The Crow Haven Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch
Our Sunday afternoon was filled with train rides, good food, climbable hay bales, slides, missing chickens, a corn maze, and everything Autumn-y and pumpkin-y. We spent the afternoon @ The Crow Haven Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch in Bird City. A family owned and operated event which celebrates everything Autumn.

Open on weekends throughout October, The Crow Haven Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch is a must visit for the family. Everyone easily found hours worth of entertainment with all of the varied thi

Proper fence is needed for grazing livestock in a rotational grazing system. As mentioned before, a rest-rotation grazing system is essential for properly managing grazing systems in the western Kansas area of short grass and mid-grass prairie.

Many perimeter fences are 3 or 4 strands of barbed wire. Interior cross-fences are usually a single smooth wire. The interior fe
