[April 19, 2008]  Our mischievous cow is still on the loose. Constable Nate Miller has enlisted the help of local farmer Steve Irwin to help capture this elusive bovine. Join us on May 10 at 719 Wyatt Ave. for the second annual "Cow Chip Bingo" fundraiser to see if our cow has been captured. The fun begins at 12:30 p.m. with free hot dogs and chips, contests and games for kids and adults, a magician and balloons, and much, much more. Remember to mark your calendar with a "moo!"
