  • No Miss Reardan program this year

    The Record-Times|Updated Apr 11, 2024

Organizer Gretchen Neal, who has overseen the program since 1999, said a flyer was placed at Reardan High School with anyone interested asked to meet organizers at the downtown fire station one Sunday in February. No one showed up, Neal said. A lack of funds after no fundraising since the COVID-19 pandemic is another factor in the program’s way, Neal said....

  • Bargain Hunting

    Pastor Josh McLachlan|Updated Apr 11, 2024

We enjoy the hunt; we enjoy the anticipation; we enjoy the thrill of walking away with a “treasure” someone else didn’t want! People have left thrift stores with famous works of art, valuable card collections, or even just a missing piece to the dinnerware or golf bag. They’ve left stores with a cartful of items they got 90% off of. Wherever they shop, the goal is...
