Fall Season is Upon Us

As of late, it’s been getting chillier by the day, especially in the morning and in the evening when the sun starts dipping below the hills. Fall season sort of sprung on us this year, and while I am not a fan of the colder weather that’s sure to come, I am a fan of what fall brings.

Marty Lane...

Just the title alone, some of you might be saying to yourself, “Oh my, what’s Duncan got going on in his head this week?” Well, in all actuality, while having some downtime Monday night before hitting the sack, my mind was running full of moments in life that really have formed me as the person I have become.

Always Impressive...

Once again, as it has happened so many times, the people of Clay County continue to  impress me.  Sunday night, as communitiesthat support Sandy Creek Public Schools came together to help one of their own students and families out, I walked around chatting with folks, gazing at the support for a little guy and his family. I just stood in amazement at the outpouring of help and assistance the communities of Edgar, Fairfield,

CONG NEWS

By Nina Weese
 
Another two weeks have gone by and we’re all still here. No really bad weather has happened in this area, although we are dealing with a lot of humidity, which makes for steamy days. Just a normal Nebraska summer… These past few weeks, Marlene Shirey has had her great-grandchildren visiting. This week, it was Faith Williams of York and she plans on having Tyler Williams overnight this week to come. With school coming back in session, we all had to let the little ones go back home.

Take A Bow

by Ashley Swanson
 
I’m not really sure how it happened. I had gone to the first day of the Allegro Wolf Broadway Academy on Monday, July 27, to take photos for last week’s paper. It didn’t take longer than the 30 minutes of me being there to be sucked into their world. Maybe it was their energy or maybe it was the love they had for theatre and music...either way, I was hooked. And for the remainder of the week, I continued to go back to Allegro whenever I had the chance.

It’s A Small World...

by Tory Duncan
 
As I took one of the first getaway since I have moved to Clay County...not counting trips to Lincoln or Omaha for state sporting events, I had one of those “It’s a Small World” moments Thursday night during a stay in Thedford, NE. My tour of the Sandhills began with a trip through Halsey National Forest. I then checked into the motel in Thedford, with dinner plans at the “Lonely Grill,” as it is called, right next to the motel.

District 38 Senator Kuehn’s Part Three of Property Taxes

While the valuation of property subject to taxation by a political subdivision is dictated by market conditions and subject to the Uniformity Clause of the Nebraska Constitution, the amount of tax collected per$100 of valuation, called the tax levy, is set by each political subdivision annually. An examination of your property tax statement lists which political subdivisions you are paying taxes to and the levy rate. Expressed as a decimal figure, the rate is calculated as a percentage of total valuation collected in taxes.   n
