Can a dream lead to realism?

Dreams, they often times are just that, dreams. The Merriam-Webster online dictionary deems a dream as: “a series of thoughts, images, or emotions occurring during sleep.”

Well, this past weekend I had a dream that has taken up a big part of my outside-of-work efforts, along with a group of other believers in Sutton, that being the future of the Sutton Community Home.

As I woke from the dream Saturday morning, I recall waking up in the dream to look outside and see across the street a new nursing home facility, done and serving the community and area.

I can say that over the course of the past 3-4 months, since the Sutton Community Home and the Sutton Community Home Foundation hosted a town hall meeting to discuss the future of the home, a lot has gone on; some changes have been made and progress is being made.

In the next 4-6 weeks, new schematic plans will be in hand and we’ll be taking off to gain the future of the new facility.

Cougars sink Thayer Central 62-58 for 2nd win of the season

A big night from four Cougars would guide the Sandy Creek Cougars to their second win of the 2018-19 basketball season, as Wyatt Mach, with 27 points, along with 13 points from Josh Shaw and 10 points each from Conner Crumbliss and Micah Biltoft, helped Sandy Creek to a 62-58 win over Thayer Central in Southern Nebraska Conference action, Thursday, Jan. 17.

The two teams battled evenly throughout the game, as they opened with an 18-18 tie after one quarter of play, and with an 11-10 run in the second. Sandy Creek held a narrow 29-28 halftime lead.

Second half action led the Cougars to a 33-30 scoring edge to claim the four-point win and improve to 2-11 on the year.

Fillies back on track

By TORY DUNCAN

After a long and tough six-game losing streak, that dated back to a 53-31 loss to Aquinas Catholic in the finals of the David City Holiday Tournament, the Sutton Fillies found their groove on the court this past week, winning three straight games, with a pair of road wins and a big home win.

Sutton broke a 27-27 tie with Ravenna at the end of the third quarter and used a 16-10 fourth quarter rally to down the Bluejays, 43-37, to end the six-game skid and would go on to trip up Fairbury, 36-33, on the road and return home to dominate the Heartland Huskies, 52-37, to improve to 7-9 on the year.

MURMAN’S CORNER

Dear Neighbor,

The first session of the 106th Legislature convened on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2019. It’s my first session serving as your state senator and I want to thank you all for giving me the opportunity to do so.

The 106th Legislature is composed of two sessions. This being an odd-numbered year, we will have a long session lasting 90 working days, which is scheduled to wrap up in early June. In even-numbered years, the short session lasts 60 working days and typically ends around mid-April.

The first 10 days of session is the only time that a senator can introduce a bill. The bills are then referred to the appropriate committee. Every bill that is proposed in the Nebraska Legislature will be given a chance to be heard in committee, and if it is fortunate enough it’ll move onto the floor for discussion with the entire body. This year I have chosen to introduce a handful of bills, allowing me to devote plenty of time and attention to each.

Time for yet another busy stretch

By Tory Duncan

Late January through early March, for the past 30 years or so, have always been a fun but hectic time of year for those of us who have chosen the newspaper business as their careers.

In a conversation through email with a colleague of mine that I’ve valued as a friend and “go to guy” for advice, Willis Mahannah of the West Point News, this time of year, while there are many busy stretches in our schedules, is perhaps the most enjoyable hectic time of year for the newspaper business.

Outside of the meeting schedules, weather changes and such, when conference basketball tournament time and conference wrestling time comes around each year, it becomes that time when the coffee pot/maker, or a can of Mountain Dew (right, Willis?) becomes your best friend, as long as our hearts can handle the caffeine fix.
