November 10, 2011

Today in Clay is kind of an in-between day. The county is gearing up for Veterans' Day (and also the highly anticipated 11/11/11) tomorrow, so today, we're preparing accordingly.

The Clay County News just played host to some Sutton cub scouts this afternoon, as they are learning about communication. The group toured the news office and learned about how the newspaper is a valuable part of communication in the county and beyond.

As stated, tomorrow is Veterans' Day and our former service men and women will be recognized in a few different settings tomorrow. Sandy Creek will hold a breakfast at 7:45 and an assembly at 8 a.m. Harvard and Sutton schools will hold their Veterans' Day programs at 10:30 a.m. The city of Fairfield will also be bringing in Naval Ammunition Depot Historian Walt Miller for a program in the evening.

Tory and Kris have also put their minds together on the 2011 Fall Sports All-Clay County volleyball and football teams. Our selections, which were admittedly tough, will appear in next week's issue.

The Nebraska Public Power District also released a statement today regarding the rate increase proposal. The press release states that the increase was approved for 2012. Look for more information on this in next week's issue.

Apologies for missing the last two days' Clay Today. We'll be better.

For those bank and other employees who have tomorrow off from work, have a great weekend! For the rest of us, remember to thank a veteran and we'll see you tomorrow.
