Veteran’s Day holiday to affect
paper delivery next week
Some mail subscribers of The Imperial Republican will see a delay in their paper delivery next week.
Co-Publisher Russ Pankonin said the post office will be closed next Wednesday due to the holiday. As a result, papers will not be handled by the post office until Thursday morning.
He said that means local boxholders will not receive their paper until Thursday, instead of late Wednesday.
Subscribers on local rural routes should receive their paper as normal next Thursday.
Papers to out-of-area subscribers will not go out until Thursday afternoon instead of the regular Wednesday afternoon schedule.
Local vendors will receive their papers as usual on Wednesday afternoon.
Honor those in military
service: be a blood donor
This Veteran’s Day, the American Red Cross encourages eligible individuals to make an appointment to donate blood as one way to honor military veterans and active military personnel.
Chase County Schools will be the site of a Bloodmobile collection next Wednesday, Nov. 11, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Longhorn gym.
School Nurse Angie Paisley is coordinating the Bloodmobile and said they have a goal of 60 units. She can be contacted at 308-882-4228 to make an appointment. Walk-ins are also welcome.
First started as a relief effort to provide blood products for soldiers during WWII, the American Red Cross Blood Services now collects and distributes nearly half of the nation’s blood supply.
Efforts of the Red Cross serve more than 3,000 hospitals in the nation, including the VA Medical Center in Omaha and the VA Greater Nebraska Health Care System.
Snowy October finally over
A total of 15 inches of snow was recorded in Imperial during October. It’s likely area residents are glad to see the month gone, in hopes that November is more like autumn. However, the snow did bring nearly three and a half inches of moisture last month.
This past week, 8.5 inches of snow was recorded last Thursday, as residents and farmers were forced to dig out again. The snow was preceded by several hours of rain.
Daily high and low temperatures: Oct. 28—40 and 32 with .28 inch moisture; Oct. 29—40 and 26 with .54 inch moisture; Oct. 30—44 and 26; Oct. 31—64 and 32; Nov. 1—65 and 35 with .02 inch moisture; Nov. 2—48 and 34; Nov. 3—64 and 26.
