Looked Up To...

by Ashley Swanson

Friday, I was privy to a senior walk at Harvard. A little after 9:15 a.m., elementary students lined the hall and waited for the soon-to-be Harvard graduates to walk down the hall. They were excited, to say the least, even more so when the teachers told them they could give the seniors high fives, wish them luck and clap for them.

The Column About Everything

By Ashley Swanson

There’s so much going on, it seems almost impossible to focus on just one thing. First off, it’s Nursing Home Week and Older Americans Month, and I have had the pleasure to spend time at a couple of my favorite places—Sutton Community Home and Harvard Rest Haven.

Well the obvious thing you will see in this week’s issue of the Clay County News is that it is graduation for all three high schools in the county this weekend. It’s always a fun celebration bringing to a close the elementary, junior high and high school years for graduating classes each year.

The May Rat Race...

by Tory Duncan
 
And so it begins.... Mother Nature slowed down the start of the May Rat Race this year, letting loose of some much needed moisture over the weekend and end of last week, but the timing really STUNK!!! Just sayin’!!! You can plan, get your schedule all set in stone and then BOOM, it’s all out the window.

What is Happiness?

by Ashley Swanson
 
Happiness is this little feeling we all get when something unexpectedly touches our hearts. It wells up inside you until it can no longer hold itself in, and then bursts across your face in the widest of smiles. Happiness is waking up to a note or text message with a paragraph of words that just makes you want to jump out of bed and jump for joy.

Different Perspective

by Ashley Swanson
 
Friday night’s keynote speaker during the annual Nebraska Press Association Convention, this year in Kearney, was a World War II veteran. In June of 1944, 19-year-old Morley Piper was climbing down a rickety rope ladder into a higgins boat just 10 miles off the shore of Omaha Beach.

Memories Abound...

by Tory Duncan
 
Each year, when members of the Nebraska Press Association and Nebraska Press Advertising Service gather for conference time, I always find myself perhaps learning more from my peers and other leaders of this business we call the newspaper business. Of course, we attend to soak in new ideas and information from sessions, as well as from other people in the business. But by in large, the true gathering is to recharge the batteries through conversations and ideas shared, while standing in a group of news people or just having a one-on-one conversation.

Dancing & Music

by Ashley Swanson
 
This past weekend was filled with dancing and music—my favorite kind of weekends. Friday evening, I watched as the Deshler choir kids put on their musical, “The Little Mermaid;” my cousins were involved in it.

April 15, 1994.....

by Tory Duncan
 
While digging through a few momentos this past Sunday, I ran across a letter from my father, yes, a real letter, mailed and all, not an email, but a letter. The letter, dated April 15, 1994, preceded what would be my dad’s final Nebraska Press Association Convention held that year in Lincoln.

Regulation Rewind Rolls On...

by Rep. Adrian Smith
 
The Obama administration just finalized its fiduciary rule, an overbearing regulation which would hinder access to financial advice for nearly seven million Americans and create new hardships for small business owners. As with many regulations issued by the Obama administration, input from stakeholders was ignored when churning out this new red tape. Unfortunately, the fiduciary rule is only the tip of the regulatory iceberg.
