Harvard football...The road to Cody

By Tory Duncan

Cody, NE, according to the 2010 census, has a population of 154. It’s nestled in the northern sandhills of Nebraska, some 45-50 miles west of Valentine in Cherry County, just a hop, skip and jump south of the Nebraska-South Dakota border. Cody is the next stop on the magical ride that is Harvard football this season. This past Friday night’s playoff win over South Platte marked the first time since Oct. 30, 2003, that the Cardinals’ program has won a playoff game. On that date in 2003, Harvard rolled past Diller-Odell 56-20, before bowing out of the Class D-1 eight-man playoffs to Falls City Sacred Heart on Nov. 5, 2003.

The busy stretch of the fall season

By Tory Duncan

Annually in late fall, the time of year to gear up for the end of the fall sports season, it quickly slaps me in the back. It’s hard for me to believe that as of this Friday, the regular season of the high school football season is over! My oh my, time flies when you’re having fun.

Adventures with a two-year-old

By Ashley Swanson

 

This past week, I took a vacation, and let me tell you how weird that felt. The fact that I was on vacation didn’t sink in until my twoyear- old niece, Aubree, and I were finding a parking spot at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha. For my vacation time, I decided to spend some time with Aubree, and I felt this was the perfect time to do it. She was old enough to understand things and was in that super curious stage, and she wasn’t in school quite yet.

Pondering thoughts of upcoming election

By Tory Duncan

 

Monday night, after taking in a couple of meetings and after listening to the second presidential debate, or should I say gritting my teeth through the debate, I found a little information that kind of helped me sum up what I’ve been thinking over the past half a year or so...maybe longer. As I infuse my own thoughts, I keep saying in my own mind, don’t get into a political debate, because we all have our thoughts, and best of all, because of the country we live in, we ALL have the right to our own thoughts.

Bragging rights initiated

By  Ashley Swanson

 

This week is National Newspaper Week, and I think I’m going to have to brag a little bit about my coworkers. They are the very reason we can get a paper out to you, our wonderful readers, every week. From the moment I arrived, to the here and now, they’ve guided me, given me advice, followed with me on some crazy story idea I came up with, and helped me in more ways than just being my coworkers.

Community newspapers surviving culture

By  Tory Duncan

This week marks the 76th year in which the United States celebrates National Newspaper Week. It also marks the 40th issue of the 131st year of existence for the Clay County News. For the past seven years and four months, I’ve been a part of the long standing history of the Clay County News, and all of its newspapers that have been produced for its readers throughout Clay County. It’s no secret that in some areas of the newspaper world, changing times have taken a toll on our industry, just like it has within any business. Some papers, mainly daily newspapers, have either folded, such as the Rocky Mountain News, and yet others have stopped producing a print edition and gone solely to an online edition, such as the Ann Arbor News in Michigan.

Keuhn shares thoughts about Department of Corrections in NE

By Keuhn

 

A number of significant problems in the Nebraska Department of Corrections were brought to public attention in 2014. From sentencing miscalculations that resulted in the early release of criminals and system-wide overcrowding, to staffing complications requiring mandatory overtime of corrections workers, every month seemed to reveal another issue. In the last 18 months, a major prison riot, escape of two prisoners, and a number of staff assaults have dominated headlines.
