County bridge project

County bridge project

A historic Lincoln County limestone bridge was recently restored and preserved by Bluestem Quarry and Stoneworks of Lucas. Jon Pancost and his crew replaced and repaired stones and mortar in the bridge over Trail Creek in Lower Denmark during August and September, overcoming difficulties with mud. The crew somehow managed to miss storms that could have washed away their progress. The bridge was a WPA project completed in 1940 and located about one mile west of the Denmark church.

Post Rock Disc Golf course gets new pads

Post Rock Disc Golf course gets new pads

In April of 2018, the ribbon was cut and the Post Rock Disc Golf Course was officially opened. Originally the course had grass pads. According to organizer Adam Boyd, grass pads are adequate when the course gets limited traffic. However, as a course becomes more popular, the grass pads wear, leaving dirt spots. That makes it difficult to play when the ground is muddy, and thankfully, the Lincoln course has had enough use to have creat-ed this problem.
