Wit’s End to Host Veterans Appreciation Night, Friday

Every day, 22 U.S. Veterans commit suicide. That’s one every 65 minutes. Since Sept. 11, 2001, more than 100,000 veterans have taken their own life; the average age of these vets is 60 years old. It’s not necessarily young soldiers returning home from Iraq or Afghanistan committing suicide—it’s just as likely to be men and women who also fought in Vietnam. Aside from that, 2,500 active duty personnel have committed suicide since 2001. When these soldiers leave the war to come home, they bring the trauma of it with them

SC Grad Lindsey Hinrichs Named 2015 Oregon Trail Rodeo Queen in Hastings

What makes a rodeo? That is one of the questions often asked in a rodeo queen competition. I was lucky enough this past weekend to attend the full Oregon Trail Rodeo competition in Hastings, NE. Lindsey Hinrichs was the one I was there to watch. When a rodeo starts, you get to hear a great introduction; they often play a video of Paul Harvey’s “God Made a Farmer.” Then the queen rides in on her horse, with the American flag flying.
