Traveling the Nebraska byways

By Tory Duncan

 

Nebraska is certainly a state with many sights to be found, and this past weekend, while making the 300-mile trek to Cody last Friday to cover the Harvard/ Cody-Kilgore Six-Man playoff game, I always seem amazed with what one can see, even if we’ve traveled the roads. I traveled through, or nearby 23 towns along the trek.

Thanksgiving vs. Christmas; the showdown

By Ashley Swanson

 

November is the month to give thanks for everything we have in our lives. At the end of the month, families come together for a hearty meal and some good company. But wait, what is that I hear in the distance? Jingle Bells? Frosty? Silent Night?

An exciting night, high spirits at Harvard

By Ashley Swanson

One of my favorite part about Harvard is their spirit. No matter what activity is going on, no matter what the score of a game is, the spirit level is at maximum. Harvard’s football season, thus far, has been exciting, for the athletes, coaches, crowd and certainly those from the CCN who cover them, and at every game, that well known spirit is never lacking.

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.
