Winter is still holding on for dear life in Denton. I am sure you all are ready for the wind to stop blowing for a change. Cousin from North Dakota called to say she found my underwear that blew off the clothes line. Ha! One thing you can count on in Nebraska is ... taxes and the wind! I was talking to some friends and got to laughing, come August when its 110 when we want a breath of wind there won't be a single breeze.


Things are going well here in Denton. The Denton Historical Society is busy at work. At the February meeting we toured the Denton Churches. Mike Cvitek gave the tour of St. Mary's Catholic Church and Marilyn Giles and Jane Reinkordt gave the tour of the Methodist Church. Denton has some very active churches and welcome anyone to attend services.


At their last meeting they discussed the upcoming Denton Historical Society Tea on April 28. This year's theme will be "paper dolls." If you have any paper dolls you would like to share on display let Charlene Hobelman know.


The Historical Society Meeting will be April 16. If you would like to attend the meeting, please feel free to join us. We will be doing pillow cleaning and you have a chance to purchase new pillows on April 13. We are also having a Craft Show and Tell on March 27, doors open at 1 p.m. followed by business meeting at 1:30 p.m. This will all be held at Denton Community Center. You can contact Charlene for more information at 402-328-9689 or 402-430-3651 or e-mail her at


On March 4, Denton Legion welcomed Gunnison Drive Band back to town. The Legion was hoppin' that night and everyone had a great time. The GDB guys are awesome for our little town and put on awesome show. We will have them back again on April 21.


With Lent in full swing, Denton Legion is a great place to stop for a Fish Fry on Fridays. Legion has Catfish, Cod or Pollock as well as a full menu for you non-fish eaters. Club opens up at 5 p.m. If you are bringing in a group over 12 people, please call ahead at 402-797-2535.


We had our town board meeting recently and one thing that we are continuing to see in Denton is a lot of speeders on West Denton Road. I know everyone is a hurry to get where they are going, however we are looking to keep our town and everyone safe. When traveling thru Denton the speed limit is 25 m.p.h. If you are coming from the west into town, here's your warning, the speed limit signs drop fast. Goes from 45 to 25 in a very short distance. This is a prime place for the "county mounty" to get 'ya. I don't want to see anyone get a ticket, but as of now its our only way of controlling the "Earnhardts" through Denton.


As before, I always say laughter is best medicine. So here's a joke for the week ...

Q: What did the duck say when he bought lipstick?

A: "Put it on my bill."
