Knowing when enough is enough

By Ashley D. Swanson

There are some people in this world, myself included, who think they can do everything for everyone and be some sort of superman/woman without any consequences.

What these people (most of the time) don’t realize is that constantly being on the move and never taking time to just be still and not worry about how they can fix other people’s problems or never say “no” to favors is actually hurting them.

They need to know when enough is enough. That it’s OK to say you can’t take anymore on your plate, that you can’t help someone with something, that you just need a break.

Oh my how 10 years have flown by

By Tory Duncan

Sometimes time can drag on, and yes, I’ll admit that over the past 10 years since beginning with the Clay County News, it has! But...as I began a reflective past couple of weeks, a lot has changed in my life over the these 10 years with this newspaper.

I decided to take a little deeper look, thanks to an online calendar calculator. It’s kind of eye opening when you take a look like this. There have been 523 weeks worked since I walked into the front door of the news office on June 1, 2009. That equates out to 3,654 days and 87,696 hours, which means this rendition of the Bull is the 523rd in my career at the Clay County News.

Some have been good, some have been emotional, some have been goofy and yet some have seemingly been just so-so, if that!

Students rate SC high in belonging, culture

BY RITA BRHEL

Sandy Creek’s students think very highly of their school in some ways, while other aspects present opportunities for improvement.

SC secondary principal Jason Searle presented the results of the online YouthTruth survey during the South Central Unified School District #5’s Board of Education regular meeting on May 20, at Lawrence-Nelson High School in Nelson.

YouthTruth is a tool that schools can use to aid in needs assessment and strategic planning. All SC middle and high school students completed the survey earlier this year, rating the school in the areas of academic rigor, belonging and peer collaboration, college and career readiness, culture, engagement, and relationships.

Brown’s Thrift Store ownership changing

ASHLEY D. SWANSON | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

On July 1, Mark and JoAnn Brown, pictured at right, will hand the title of owner of Brown’s Thrift Store over to Ty and Anna Itzen, at left.

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

Since 1949, Sutton has had a grocery store located at the corner of Saunders Avenue and West Grove Street, first belonging to Forrest and Verna Brown, before being passed down to their sons Mark and Alan in 2007.

In 2012, when Alan passed away, Mark became the sole owner, running the store alongside his wife, JoAnn.

Today, the store is well known and heavily used by Suttonites and area communities, and on July 1, the changing of owners will once again take place.
