MEOTA — It tried in vain to rain Sunday, but will have to try again if it wants to be of any help to the crops going in. The fields throughout the area are covered with geese of every kind, mainly white snow geese. The Paynton Ferry is operating again, taking light loads, if you like to use the shortcut across to Lloydminster country.
