      February is known for being heart month so show your heart some love by staying active. There are a couple of free options in Kimball at the Main Street Market and Kimball Health Services’ North Campus.

      Both locations in Kimball offer space to walk when it’s windy, rainy, snowy, icy, or you just plain don’t want to walk outside! Many Kimball community members have been taking advantage of indoor walking at the hospital’s North Campus and Main Street Market.

      At North Campus, eight trips around gets you a little over one mile. At Main Street Market, twelve laps around will get you one mile. The journey to a happier and healthier “good life” begins with one step.

      Walking is the single most powerful thing you can do for yourself. We make time for the things that matter most – our families, their future, and our to-do list. Walking is an easy way to make sure you are healthy enough to keep it all together. And it’s simple. Just Step and Repeat.

      The Kimball Active Living Advisory Committee is coordinated by Panhandle Public Health District and comprised of community, local business, school, county, and city representatives. They’ve been meeting monthly to implement strategies identified from a planning meeting last spring.

      Indoor Walking Available

      Be sure to join the Activate Kimball Facebook group and any interested community members are welcome to attend the next monthly meeting on March 9 from 1:30-3:30 pm at the Kimball Elementary School. The committee will be discussing a sensory hallway at the elementary school and a grant funding opportunity to enhance the work.

      Panhandle Public Health District is working together to improve the health, safety and quality of life for all who live, learn, work and play in the Panhandle. Our vision is that we are a healthier and safer Panhandle Community.

      Nate Entingh led all scorers in all divisions over the two weekends with a 967 handicap total, outpacing second place Ryan Bourlier’s 885 pins and 854 pins by Greg McDaniel. In addition to cash prizes paid on a 1 of 6 ratio, all three men won $50 bonus cash for turning in the highest scores in their particular session.

      In support of the cause, Entingh, Bourlier and McDaniel were among about a dozen bowlers choosing to donate at least a portion of their winnings back to the Foundation. In all, 67 bowlers supported the Foundation tournament to help raise funds for a new heart defibrillator/monitor for the emergency room at Kimball Health Services, many of them bowling multiple games.

      The bonus cash fund was sponsored by Regional West in Scottsbluff.

      McDaniel rolled four perfect 300 games over the two weekends while Mitch Brown and Sonny Porter, both of Kimball and Clay Keane of Sidney each had two. Other perfect games were turned in by Jacob Bofus of Lyman, Lisa Becker of Scottsbluff and Paul Parsons of Cheyenne.

      Becker’s 300 helped her take first place in women’s singles with an 897 handicap total, followed by Monica Garcia of Scottsbluff with 852 and Shellon Anderson of Kimball 785. Becker and Garcia combined to take first place in women’s doubles with 1619, followed by Patty Yanaga and Bonnie Risk with 1428 and Nancy Garrett and Teresa Anthony with 1373.

      Bofus’s 300 helped him and teammate Chris Dougles of Scottsbluff take first place in men’s league doubles with a 1640 handicap series, followed by McDaniel and Kelly Garrett of Kimball with 1634. Garrett later combined with Lynn Anthony of Kimball for third place with 1555.

      In mixed doubles, AJ Parsons and Mary Parsons, both of Cheyenne, took first with 1992. Sonny and Kathy Porter of Kimball took second with 1720, followed by Mitch Brown and Shellon Anderson with 1691.

      Other division winners included Derek Rodgers II and Tessa Leicester, both of Gering with a 1517 series in youth league doubles, Zane Anthony of Kimball and Macie Rolls of Sidney with 696 in non-league doubles, Zane Anthony with 686 in men’s non-league singles, Ananstasia Manley of Gering with 456 in women’s non-league singles, Derek Rodgers II in youth league singles with 803, and Ethan Koehn of Kimball in youth non-league singles with 524.
