Edgar farmer gives insider look at NE Corn Board

Edgar farmer gives insider look at NE Corn Board

RITA BRHEL | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Edgar farmer John Greer discusses the Nebraska Corn Board and how everything works and runs within the organization.

Harvest may be done, but the careful interplay of the commodity grain markets is still very much at work.

Among those behind the scenes, striving to keep the global demand strong for U.S. corn, is a farmer from Edgar.

“If you’re not a member of commodity organizations, you need to be,” said John Greer, who is in his fifth year on the Nebraska Corn Board. “You can’t take your family to McDonald’s for what it costs to join these organizations. They’re our voice. The organizations really do help promote the products that we raise.”

For a bit of nostalgia, do you remember the song “Scarborough Fair” by Simon & Garfunkel? The lyrics began:

“Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

“Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme

“Remember me to the one who lives there

“For once she was a true love of mine”

It is a lyrical English ballad in which the singer asks a friend if he is going to the fair at a Yorkshire town. He suspects the friend may run into one who was a once a true love. He asks that the friend offer terms for her to again be a true love. The girl must make a shirt without seams or needle work. She must wash the shirt in a dry well. She must find an acre of land between sea foam and sand–impossible stuff. He is soliciting a bribe–a quid pro quo, if you will-for the girl to again be a “true love of mine.” And let’s not even get into the spice thing.

Harvard TeamMates looking for mentors

The National Mentoring Partnership reports one in three children will go through life without a mentor. TeamMates believes all children, no matter their life experience, can benefit from a relationship with a safe, caring adult.

You don’t have to be an expert. You just have to be there. That’s why Team-Mates’ vision is to reach the gold standard of school-based mentoring programs and serve 12,000 youth by 2020.

The goal of our Harvard Chapter is to serve at least 30 children by 2020. We currently have 22 students matched with local mentors who come into the school once a week to talk, play cards and games, do crafts, and other fun activities with the students. We still have many students on the waiting list who would love to have TeamMates mentors!

Exciting football happenings

RAMBLES

No matter how you word it there is a winning team and a losing team when it comes to football playoffs.

There is a team who celebrates with their community and classmates at center field, cheering loud and proud.

There is a team who, with heads hanging low, walk off to be greeted with hugs and pats on the shoulder with a “you did good,” following behind it.

No matter how hard a team worked to get to playoffs, there’s a chance they could be the losing team who’s season ends and who’s seniors have taken their last march onto a field and into a game they’ve spent countless hours working on.

County board talks wages with roads dept, extension office

Wages were the hot topic of this week’s Clay County Board of Supervisors.

Two departments—the Clay County Highway Department and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Service at Clay County—met with the Board on Nov. 19, at the courthouse in Clay Center, both seeking changes to employee wages.

“We are either right at or above most of the other counties,” Tom Roemmich, Jr., County Highway Superintendent said, “but I guess my opinion is, I’d like to see Clay County above everybody.”

For the county to stay competitive in attracting and retaining employees, he suggested the Board consider if there needs to be adjustments made not only in his department but other county services.

“If we’re going to set that bar, let’s set it,” Roemmich said.
