Keeping Nebraska Safe...

by Governor. Pete Ricketts
 
Nebraska has been a welcoming place to people from around the world for years, and my administration is committed to continuing to make our state a great place to live, work and raise a family. In light of the events in Paris, it is critical, however, that the Obama administration consider the safety of Americans first before moving forward with plans to resettle Syrian refugees.

It Amazes Me...

by Tory Duncan

I’m always amazed, to say the least, when I kick back long enough to “re-hash” the prior week before I pen the Bull column as to how some weeks I work my brain pretty hard to share my personal thoughts for the week. Some weeks, however, I work the ole gears in my head overtime in wondering what to share and yet other weeks, like this week, I find myself wondering just how in the world am I going to fit all my thoughts into just 21-inches?

While The Coworkers Are Away

by Ashley Swanson

The world is currently in a distressed state (more than usual), so hopefully, this “lighter mood” can give you a good chuckle or two. There have been many times over the past almost-year, when it’s been just Scoop and myself—either after hours or on the weekends. When I’m by myself, I love to blare music...any kind of music and it’s usually pretty loud. Not disrespectfully loud, just....well, loud.

State Volleyball, 2009...

by Tory Duncan
 
Seems just like yesterday... to ME, that the week of state volleyball had three of our four county schools in the 2009 state championship tournaments. Clay Center, Sandy Creek and Sutton all advanced to the big show at the end of the 2009 season.

Talented Students

by Ashley Swanson
 
One of the things I love about my job is being able to witness the immense talent the students in this county have to offer. I have always loved One Acts...well, just plays in general, because they give people the opportunity to be someone else for a while. You get to dress up in clothes you wouldn’t normally wear (or maybe you would. No judgement). And you get to bring the words on pages to life in creative ways.

Social Media

By Ashley Swanson

Social media has become a huge part of our every day lives and, for many, it’s something we can’t live without. On Tuesday, as I made my way up to Sutton’s school for an assembly, I told myself I would stay for 20 minutes and then leave. After all, it was press night and I still had stuff to get done. Well, after being there for five minutes, it was clear that I was going to stay for the entire speech. The assembly was based around social media and how to properly use it and the dangers of using it.

It’s What I Do...

By Tory Duncan

What happens in a day in your life? Is it eventful? Is it challenging? Is it mundane? I would have to share that, in a day for me, no single day is the same, never has been, never will be as long as I hold down my current career. Without a doubt, each day, while the routine is the same... Monday is wrap up writing and ad sales. After our deadline hits at 5, layout time begins for each weekly paper. Then on Wednesday, it becomes “catch your breath day,” at least a little bit. Thursday and Friday...and of course the weekends, nearly always have something going on that carries all of our staff around the county trying our best to get everywhere.

An Eventful Weekend

By Ashley Swanson

This past weekend has been one to remember, at least, it has been for me. On Friday, the Sutton Mustangs worked hard to shutout Superior. There were a few times where Superior just got a little too close to their end zone, but were quickly stopped or pushed back by the Mustangs. Saturday morning and evening was packed with a vendor show and the Haunted Road Rally. The vendor show offered a wide variety of items, and it looked as if people were enjoying talking with others and scoping out the goodies on tables.

Lighter Mood...

By Tory Duncan

I had quite the experience late last week, ending my work week (at least in the office) on Thursday before heading to Milford for the Southern Nebraska Conference volleyball championship match between Sutton and Sandy Creek. Then, I went on to Lincoln for board.meetings on Friday and Friday night with the Nebraska Press Association. With that much drive time over the course of two or three days, it lent me time to reflect upon just how lucky I truly am in getting the luxury of covering successful schools not just athletically, but more importantly, the fact that I truly do feel lucky to follow and cover school districts that are successful across the board in terms of educational experiences and extra curricular activities.
