BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

The level of emotions exhibited at any given speech meet is something not only felt by the student, but their team and others around them. State speech, although the stakes are higher, is no different.

Thursday and Friday four students, one from Harvard and three from Sutton, earned a spot on the podium during the state speech competition at the University of Nebraska-Kearney.

Thursday, during the C1 competition, Casey Van Kirk and Megan Fehr earned third place in Duet Acting, with teammate Karis Andres earning sixth place in Entertainment Speaking.

PF Banquet gives back to others

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

The Henry Golden Boy 22 Mag proudly sports the Pheasants Forever logo on the stock, splashing spots of a shiny, gold covering at various parts of the gun, and was purchased at a high price.

During the annual Pheasants Forever Banquet, several items, such as photographs, coolers, guns, outdoor items, and much more were auctioned off to the hundreds of people attending the event.

Money from each item auctioned off usually goes back to the organization for training and equipment purposes. The funds raised from the Henry Golden Boy, however, went toward a different purpose this year.

When the Henry Gold Boy gun was presented, Auctioneer Colt Pope announced the passing of Sutton resident Jessica Nuss earlier that morning, March 17. She had been battling cystic fibrosis and other medical issues for several years.
