Gibbon hosts POW/MIA Ceremony

The Gibbon American Legion Riders hosted the annual POW/MIA Ceremony at the Bradley Buck Post #310 on Saturday, September 16.John Arias, past Post Commander and Rider member said, “We have been hosting the ceremony since 2012 when I organized it as a High Performance Leadership Project for Toastmasters.  This is the second year that the Poker Run has been held in conjunction with the POW/MIA Ceremony.”

Legion Rider, Denise Fenster, said, “This year we had 27 participants in the Poker Run and each drew playing cards at each stop and the best hands at the conclusion of the run were recognized: Brenda Middleswart won first place; Larry Fenster, second; and Frank Spotanski received lowest score.” Read more in this week’s Clipper!




Eagles’ Nest continues to soar at Husker Harvet Days

Since 1994, Wood River’s Eagles’ Nest has graced a spot at the annual Husker Harvest Days extravaganza just west of Grand Island.

“It’s actually amazing,” says Jodi Rauert, the current president of the Wood River Boosters, the organization that owns the building and its business, as she reflects on the pure dedication, devotion, cooperation, and community spirit on display every year.  This year the Husker Harvest Days spanned Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, September 12, 13, and 14.

The yearly project literally involves everyone in the Wood River school, including all students, along with all school personnel, and including the faculty and staff.  It’s definitely a togetherness thing that yearly pulls in a number of adults and community members who want to be involved as well.  “A lot of people don’t even have a kid in school and want to come work anyway,” said Rauert.

The staple offering of the Eagles’ Nest centers around hamburgers and cheeseburgers, brats, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, and pulled pork sandwiches, to say nothing about the personal pan pizzas and fresh-baked sweet delights.  And then there are all the usual items for drinking as well, all of which are designed to suit every taste and preference. Read more in this week’s Clipper!

Healthy Harvest

Nebraska Corn reminds ag workers, rural residents to be safe this harvest season

As farmers begin harvesting their crops this fall, the Nebraska Corn Board and Nebraska Corn Growers Association encourage farmers, as well as rural residents and visitors, to take a moment for safety near farming operations to avoid serious accidents or injuries. To help promote farm safety, “National Farm Safety and Health Week” is taking place this week, September 17-23, 2017. This week-long farm safety promotion has taken place every year since 1944 and occurs during the third week of each September.

The theme for this year’s farm safety promotion is “Putting Farm Safety into Practice.” According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the agricultural sector is the most dangerous industry in America. In 2015, there were 180 reported fatalities of agricultural workers, which was up 22 percent from the previous year. While “National Farm Safety and Health Week” will help remind farmers, rural residents and visitors about the importance of farm safety for seven days, it’s also important for people to be cautious on or near farm operations throughout the year. Read more in this week’s Clipper!


Centurion volleyballers extend winning streak

Not only have the Lady Centurions won their last five outings on the court, they have done so in the minimum number of sets in all but one game.  It took four sets to get past St. Paul at home Tuesday, September 12, but the broom has been kept busy since then.  The win at Kearney Catholic two nights later was a three-set sweep, and the three wins at the Gibbon quadrangular Saturday, the 16th, were all two-set sweeps.

The streak lends credence to the number-four ranking among the state’s Class C-2 volleyball teams that Centura is enjoying.

In the first home game of the season the Centurions took the first set by five points over St. Paul, then dropped the second set by four, but rebounded with 13-point and  six-point wins in the next two sets for the game win. Read more in this week’s Clipper!


Bulldog XC runners excel at meet added to schedule

In Coach Matt Walter’s words, “In the past few years we have had an open week, so I decided to add a race.  When the Minden Cross Country Classic came open I jumped at the chance to enter us.”  The meet was run Tuesday, September 12, and differed from the normal meets in a couple of ways.

The meet involved just two visiting teams.  Kearney Catholic joined Shelton and Minden.  The other difference was the distance.  Normally, a cross country meet involves a 5,000 meter (3.1 miles) course, but Minden was a 3,000 meter run (1.86 miles).  “We set goals for times we wanted each of our kids to run,” explained Coach Walter, who had nothing but praise for his charges.  All eight runners turned in times better than the goals they had set. Read more in this week’s Clipper!
