Hassler honored with Quilt of Valor at state fair

Butch Hassler, of rural Sutton, is no stranger to the military or 4-H way of life, and due to his involvement in both, was honored with a Quilt of Valor at the Nebraska State Fair Monday, Sept. 3.

His father joined the Navy first, then careered out in the Air Force, resulting in both Hassler and his brother, David, growing up as “military brats,” moving frequently.

Hassler served in the Air Force in 1977, serving his enlistment stateside, mostly at Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, UT, as a crew chief on the Air Force F4 fighter jets.

Along with his brother being enlisted in the Navy, Hassler also has a niece serving in the Coast Guard.

Clay Center future pool facts presented at Back-to-School Bash

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

During the annual Clay Center Community Club Back-to-School Bash Monday, a rendering for the possible future pool in Clay Center, along with information about the project was available for attendees.

The current pool is 60 years old, being constructed in 1958, and was originally designed to last about 25 years before updates would be needed.

Along with excessive water leakage, the pool has a number of issues that have come with age, including the need of a filter system replacement, where the parts are obsolete; the pool currently does not meet ADA accessibility standards; and the decking is beginning to sink, causing extra safety issues.
