Fires have struck buildings in Wichita County over the past couple of weeks. First, the historical Livestock Sale Barn which was located just to the south of the railroad tracks went up in smoke. Early this past Sunday morning, a 9 1 1 call came in that one of the Seaboard's hog farms was on fire. Much was lost in both fires. On a good note, ground just broke for new Seaboard Hog Farms in Greeley County this week. If I am not mistaken, they will be located in the northern part of the county. These new farms bring new much-needed jobs to our area in addition to new revenue. It is good to see positive growth in our neck of the woods.
