Conquering Through Change

By: McKensi Uecker & Rachel Shackelford

On April 27, the Sandy Creek journalism class competed in the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) State Journalism competition in Norfolk, NE. The students have been working all year to produce submissions and prepare for events at state. The journalism class had a total of 14 students that competed in a variety of events. Overall, they had 23 submissions that contributed to a runner-up finish. Krista Johnson, who competed in editorial cartooning and sports/action photography, said, “I loved the atmosphere of state journalism. It was a great experience to be there, and it was a great opportunity to go and be able to compete against other talented students.”

Game in Progress for SC Journalism

By: Krista Johnson & Erika Harms

From day one, we, the Sandy Creek journalism students, were already hard at work preparing to publish the school yearbook. This year, we voted on the theme “Game Over,” which integrates popular imagery from vintage video games. The layouts feature graphics from classic games like Mario, Donkey Kong, Pac Man and Tetris. We wanted to make this yearbook unique and give it a fun vibe. “Creating the yearbook theme was really time consuming, but it was fun to see how all the layouts fit together. The last three years, I have been a part of the graphics team in journalism. It’s taught me to appreciate all the time that goes into not only the yearbook, but other graphics projects as well,” said senior Natasha Anderson.

Postal Delivery Service Needs Major Overhaul on a National Level

You’re going to find me a pretty unhappy camper this week! We received a handful of calls and emails this week about several “lost papers.” This certainly hasn’t been the first time, and it won’t be the last time, I am quite certain, because of the real issues at hand here.

As a follow-up to the “soapbox” on shingles the last time I wrote, I took my own advice. Shirley Nelson and Donna Mc- Cartney went to the Clay County Health Department the next day and received shingles shots. We are still “preaching” foreveryone to get the vaccination. Darrel McCartney has been out of the hospital for two weeks now and even though the sores are drying and the swelling is down, he is still in pain and now the itching has started. We didn’t realize how long the recovery period would be and he’s finding symptoms that others described just now surfacing. Steve and Merry Ablott celebrated Easter with a family gathering at their home on Monday after Easter. Those attending were Kevin and Carissa Uhrmacher, Cale, Xander and Emilia; Brad and Amanda Ablott and Taylor and Isaac. Don and Barb McCartney of Nelson were visitors in the Darrel McCartney home several times during the last few weeks.

Well, we finally got some moisture this past weekend. Everything is really getting green and it’s already time to start mowing again. So much nicer than snow. Marlene Shirey has four of her great-grandchildren staying with her for a while. She’s a lot stronger than I am! Dan and Leeanna Reed attended the Memorial Service for their brother-in-law, Chuck Erwin, this past Saturday in Sutton.Carla Erwin is a sister to Leeanna. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Carla and family in this trying time.  Les McClatchy was in town for a short while on Saturday afternoon.He returned to Colorado that evening after attending  the service in Sutton.

Avoiding Certain Clothes

by Ashley Swanson
 
I’ve never been one for superstitions—black cats crossing my path, certain symbols meaning bad luck—but when there was a fire every time I wore a skirt or dress to work, I started to be a little more careful.
