Threatened

Employees of the Clay County Courthouse in Clay Center had a big chill tingle throughout Tuesday morning when a bomb threat was called into the Clay County Clerk’s office.

According to Clay County Sheriff Jeff Franklin, the call came in between 10:30-11 a.m. to the clerks office. Franklin noted that when his office made a call to the Nebraska State Patrol’s bomb division, one of the bomb technicians felt that it could have been a “robo-call,” as the description given to the state patrol led them to believe that it was a digital recording.

Wheel-a-thon takes Rollins from Hastings to York

For anyone who’s ever been diagnosed with a body-crippling disease, the road is never- ending and constantly poses new challenges.

Setting course on an 80-mile journey—Hastings to Sutton, Sutton to Henderson, and Henderson to York—Dave Rollins, 52, took on the ultimate challenge to raise money for Relay For Life and the Make a Wish Foundation, pushing a wheelchair along the way.

“Normally I wouldn’t do something like this, but my dad passed away because of cancer; it’s a good tribute to him,” Rollins said. His dad, Frank, passed away on Dec. 20, 2016.

His reasoning behind pushing a wheelchair stems back to his younger years when he was diagnosed with Perthes, a disease that affects the head of the femur, which involves the blood supply to the growth plate of the bone to become inadequate, resulting in the bone softening and breaking down.

Fighting back one step at a time

Why I Relay?

“I Relay for the 19 years I have been cancer free...for all the patients and families that I have taken care of that have had cancer...because my grandma died of lung cancer... to hopefully help in finding a cure one day...because of friends and family...for myself to get the courage and strength to keep going further...for the many family members who have died from cancer...for my mother-in-law, who passed away from ovarian cancer and my brother, who passed away from lung cancer...because no child should ever have to watch their parent die of lung cancer...because of my grandma and other family members and friends who have been diagnosed with cancer...because I have lost a lot of my family to cancer and I just want to be there for others and there’s no better way than to Relay.”

There are many reasons why people Relay—these are some of the ones the Relay For Life of Clay County Event Leadership Team members continue to do what they do each year.

Setting her apart from other similar businesses in the area, Godtel said she offers a lot of different services.
