CLARK COUNTY — Smoke is still hanging out in the skies over our county. We did get some wind at the end of the week and weekend that cleared up some of the smoky skies. Despite those weather events, there was a rodeo as planned on Sept. 11. Clark County remembers that day with their annual Memorial Rodeo for local residents who have passed on. The 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks will long be remembered.

The smoky skies have hung over the Kilgore area. That has not stopped the hunters, vacationing people and/or the local agriculture visitors and locals.
