Patrons in the Nes Tre La Go school district voted to close their
elementary school in Utica at the end of the 2004-2005 school year.
The school stands on the sweeping gravel-covered curve just a few
blocks off Kansas Highway 4, about 40 miles southwest of WaKeeney.
Brandon Jasper, 12, on bicycle, Nicholas Jasper, 6, right, and Star
Jasper, 4, all will attend the school this fall.
