Clay Co. to see many contested races on General Election Tuesday

Several signs sporting candidates names and the position they are running for have been seen adorning front lawns, edges of cornfields, and on the sides of streets for weeks. The amount of time spent on marketing themselves will show on Nov. 6, as Clay County comes together to vote.

Much like the May election, there are many contested races placed on the November ballot.

Clay Center to vote on pool propositions next Tuesday

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

Two propositions from Clay Center will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot.

Proposition No. 1: Bond issue for new pool; Proposition No. 2: 1/2 cent sales tax to service the bond for the pool project.

The current Clay Center Pool is 60 years old, being constructed in 1958, and was originally designed to last about 25 years before updates would be needed.

Along with excessive water leakage, the pool has a number of issues that have come with age, including the need of a filter system replacement, where the parts are obsolete; the pool currently does not meet ADA accessibility standards; and the decking is beginning to sink, causing extra safety issues.

Fillies trip Sandy Creek, fall to Superior in C2-3 sub-district tourney

BY TORY DUNCAN

The season for the Sutton Fillies and Sandy Creek Cougars came to a close Monday night for both teams in action at the C2-3 Sub-District tournament, hosted by Adams Central High School, west of Hastings.

Sutton, however, would rebound from a three set loss to Sandy Creek just a week ago, as the Fillies, before a straight sets, 25-9, 25-14, 25-21 loss to second ranked and top seed Superior, would avenge a 25-23, 20-25, 17-25 loss to the Cougars on Oct. 23 and take down the Cougars 25-16, 25-15, 19-25, 25-21, to advance to the bout with Superior Monday night.

Mustang defense plays big

Sutton improves to 9-1 with 22-7 win over Battle Creek in C-2 opener

BY TORY DUNCAN

It didn’t take long to figure out that the opening round of the Class C-2 state football playoffs was going to be an old fashion battle out by the woodshed when the 14th seed, Battle Creek Braves, showed up to challenge third seeded Sutton Oct. 26.

Sutton’s defense would be the difference maker in a 22-7 win over the Braves, as three interceptions to stop three strong Battle Creek drives by Cade Wiseman, Dusty Stone and Jordan Davis, along with a monster night from the Mustang defensive line and line-backing group, held the Braves to a mere 99 rushing yards and 87 passing yards in the Mustangs 15-point win.

Sandy Creek, Sutton students attend National FFA Convention

BY KARLA FEHR

A little over 700 miles and 12 hours, nestled in a vehicle full of blue jackets, the Sandy Creek and Sutton FFA Chapters embarked on a convention they will not soon forget.

Six students and two advisors from Sandy Creek and 12 students, one advisor and one sponsor from Sutton took the trip to Indianapolis, IN, last week, Oct 24-27, for the 91st National FFA Convention.

Each school also had one member selected to be part of the National FFA Choir. Sutton senior Megan Fehr and Sandy Creek senior Rami Hinrichs were both selected for the prestigious, 85 member National Choir.

SC students attending the convention included juniors Connor Crumbliss and Neika Buschkoetter, sophomores Jason Brockman and Hunter Cox, and freshmen Caitlin Rempe and John Brodrick. They were accompanied by new co-advisors Mattison Sullivan and Jacob Goldfuss.

Time for a change in Nebraska’s playoff system?

By Tory Duncan

Nebraska in many ways, regarding high school football, is very unique in some aspects...in other ways, we’re just like most other state’s playoff systems, but something really made me think after the first week of the NSAA playoffs for all six classes.

First off, the D-1 and D-2 playoffs with still having 32 teams advance to the playoffs is far too many teams. This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned this, especially after the C-1 and C-2 playoffs backed off from 32 teams to 16.

Class C-2 was the only class this year that didn’t have a team with a losing record advance.

Halloween is a haunting time

By Ashley D. Swanson

Loetta and I spent Saturday in Clay Center preparing for the community club’s second annual haunted house.

This year our mission was to scare people worse than last year, which sounds mean, but it was all in good spirit.

A majority of the day was spent setting the 4-H building up—with the amazing help of the Piper family. Then 5:30 p.m. rolled around, which meant it was time for makeup.
