    Kirk Carlson, Special to The Record-Times|Updated Sep 7, 2023

    REARDAN - For most Lincoln County locals, the iconic concrete grain elevators stand to define our home towns. When one is lucky enough to fly over the area, they first look to the elevators to identify which town they are flying over. The six at Reardan have stood there for nearly 70 years.
