Spring is in the air in Barbour County, with fundraisers set

Hello to you all from Barbour County!

The big news around the area, and even the state, this past week has been the teacher strike.

It didn’t last as long as the one last year, and I’m glad that the teachers stand up for what they believe is right. We all should do that in our own personal lives as well.

Spring is in the air! One way to know for sure that spring is almost here in Barbour County is that the Dairy King opens back up for the year.

First day of the season will be March 1! Yum!
