Leading the best

From that very first drive to Sandy Creek Public Schools, taken back in the fall of 1978, Russ Ninemire had no way to predict what his future would look like moving forward.

Little did he know, that almost 40 years later, his name would be a leader in the world of girls basketball, not only in the state of Nebraska, but nationwide.

Ninemire will serve as the head coach for the West Team in the annual McDonald’s All-American basketball game, slated for Wednesday, March 29, at the United Center in Chicago, home of the Chicago Bulls. This will be the 16th year for the girls game. Tipoff is slated for 4 p.m., and will be televised live on ESPN2.

Bauder: ‘Aim High’

Ask Butch Bauder what hunting has been like since he gained the passion of hunting and you’ll get a wide variety of responses. Mention the involvement in the sport of upland bird hunting with his grandsons Drew Steinhauer and Griffin Bergen, along with his son-in-law, A.J. Bergen, as well as hunting partner Noah Johnson, and Bauder’s face lights up. “It’s not just about the hunting,” Bauder says. “When I was a kid, we had pheasants everywhere; you’d fill your limit in no time. Now, you have to work harder to fill your limit.”
