Focusing on Clay County

In July we (as in the CCN) will be printing a section specifically focused on the many businesses we have in Clay County.

The idea behind this section is to focus on everything the county has to offer, either for new people moving into the county or to simply remind everyone as to what we have.

Of course we have restaurants and auto repair shops and grocery stores, but all of those places are unique to our county because of the menu, the personality of each place, and the people who run them.

RITA BRHEL | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Dr. Dale Grotelueschen, GPVEC’s director and a University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor, commented on GPVEC as a “unique program with its focus on food animals.”The building was officially dedicated in 1990.

This lab features a life-size model of a cow to give the opportunity to practice with animal models before live animals.

It’s so prestigious that college students from across the nation vie for their chance to study here.

Located between Clay Center and Glenvil, on the western edge of the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center campus, the Great Plains Veterinary Educational Center (GPVEC) is the only one of its kind in the world.

“It is a unique program with its focus on food animals, especially beef cattle,” Dr. Dale Grotelueschen, GPVEC’s director and a University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor, said.

A giant step in the right direction

Ever since a large gathering for a town hall meeting was held in Sutton in October 2018, the Sutton Community Home and the Sutton Community Home Foundation have been hard at work coming up with a feasible and financially viable plan and upgrade to the Sutton Community Home and the Hillcrest View Assisted Living facilities in Sutton.

That hard work and dedication to keep the Sutton home a strong and lasting part of the community has come to life with the announcement last week of a new three-tier assisted living facility. This will be the eventual home of the 32-unit facility at its current location, 1106 N. Saunders Ave.

As many of you read in our last edition, the proposed facility will not include a skilled nursing care center, which has been the financial drain of the facility for the better part of three to four years now.
