Shooting sports support
Members of the Delta County Shooting Sports Program and parent advisors visited the county commissioners last week to say thank you for county support of the program. The county’s crews provided installation services last summer for a water tap at the 4-H shooting sports range west of Eckert. The water connection and materials for the physical tap were provided by Orchard City. Shown above are (standing from left) brothers Andrew and Brandon Ness, their dad Mark Ness, 4-H shooting sports Council president Kathy Welt, Evan Welt, Tri-River Extension Youth Agent Jackie Goza, Amy Baier, instructor George Baier, and Jacob Black. Seated are Commissioner Bruce Hovde, Keaton Sanders, 8, and Logan Sanders, 4, and Commissioner Mark Roeber. Commissioner Doug Atchley, also a strong supporter of the program, could not attend the presentation.
