Barbara Hamilton, our loved dedicated librarian of 20 years, has lived here her entire life. She was raised up river east of town, and raised her own family west of town, where she and her husband, Oscar, still live today. She has a rich life here, and two sons, both of whom are in the medical field, four grandkids, and two great-grandkids. For many years, Barbara and her husband dry-land farmed winter wheat and beans. She shared that back in the days of more abundant moisture they yielded on average 8 bags of beans per acre, but since the drought their yield decreased to 3 bags per acre, so they no longer farm beans. The good news is, that Barbara and Oscar are still growing winter wheat. In case you aren't aware, Barbara contains a fascinating wealth of history of this area, and loves to share.
