Lunch prices to increase at Haxtun Schools Lunch prices at Haxtun Schools will increase by 10 cents this fall. The Board of Education made the decision to increase lunch prices during a meeting last week. Even with the 10-cent hike, Haxtun remains below the State average for food costs.

Climbing to heights

NEW LIFE Outdoor Adventures set up its climbing wall during Haxtun’s 27th Old-Fashioned Saturday Night held this past Saturday evening. The company, owned by Aaron and Amanda LaGrange, operates out of Grant, Neb. Amanda LaGrange said they can haul the climbing wall, which reaches 25 feet into the air, all over the area and have gone as far east as Kearney, Neb., with Haxtun being the farthest stop to the west thus far. The wall offers five levels of difficulty depending on the weight of the climber, with a 40-pound minimum. Workers set the wall up at 4:30 p.m. and climbers lined up non-stop throughout the evening. More information about the wall can be found at www.newlifeoa.com.
