Spring Ranch Adventure

by Ashley Swanson

A little bit ago, Tory had this story idea to do this series on lost towns in Clay County. I decided to head down to Spring Ranch for our first town—mostly because I find the history of the “hanging bridge” interesting....unfortunate, but interesting nonetheless.

Ronnie’s Day...

by Tory Duncan

It is with a heavy heart, but certainly with a big heart, that I remember a man that glowed like no other, this week. Perhaps Harvard’s most well known man, Ronnie Schwindt lost his battle with cancer this past Friday.

All Lives Matter

by Ashley Swanson
 
I’m sure you’ve heard the line, “Black Lives Matter,” numerous times. That statement has been posted everywhere from posters, to newspapers, to television and everywhere in between.

Thankful for...

by Tory Duncan
 
I was asked last week to jot down the top 10 things I’m most thankful for. It really made me do a lot of thinking, and, while I’m not sure this is the answer that the person who asked me about this was looking for, I’m going to give it a go anyway. Even if Thanksgiving is over, I’m going to share a few thankful thoughts.

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.
