Government shutdown is hurting Americans

RAMBLES

Ashley D. Swanson

ccnashley@gmail.com

Our country’s current partial government shutdown is on its way to becoming the longest in history. As of Jan. 8, the shutdown was on day 18, tied with the second longest shutdown in government history in 1978.

The longest shutdown was in 1995, which lasted 21 days. By Saturday, we’ll have exceeded that.

A wall in the amount of more than $5 billion started the shutdown. After the president was not granted his billions of dollars to construct a wall on the southern border, and no compromise could be found, the government went into partial shutdown, as, thankfully, several areas of the government’s funding had already been passed.

However, some areas had not, such as the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department, and the Department of Agriculture, to name a few.

Cardinals roll past Warriors, fall to Kenesaw Blue Devils

ASHLEY D. SWANSON | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Sophomore Ben Okraska drives in for two of his 10 points in the Cardinals’ 54-14 win over Red Cloud Friday, Jan. 4.

Harvard earned a huge win over Red Cloud Jan. 4, taking the 40-point win, before falling to Kenesaw, 63-28, Jan. 5, leaving the team at 6-3 on the season.

Harvard’s gymnasium was filled with the sounds of intense pounding throughout the first quarter, as the Cardinals and Warriors consistently fought for the ball, resulting in several turnovers and pushing the boys in a constant run up and down the court.

Despite Red Cloud’s urgency to grab and sink the ball, the Cardinals used runs of 10-0 and 20-6 in the first half to secure their strong lead. Adding to Harvard’s handle of the ball were 30 rebounds; rebound leaders were Noah Okraska with eight, and David Reazola and Steve Brand with five each.

Going into the second half, Harvard’s advancement in points showed, as the team posted 15 points in the third, compared to Red Cloud’s five.

The three-point shot mental block

BULL

Tory Duncan • ccntory@gmail.com

Three-point shots in basketball can certainly be a huge game changer, and while I didn’t play high school basketball in the era of the three-point shot, I can only share what I see and think about what it does and doesn’t do...from my perspective.

There is no doubt that the shot has had a big impact on the game, and IF a team has players that can shoot it with reasonable accuracy, it truly is a huge weapon, if you will. Saturday, as I was watching some youth basketball in Lincoln, namely watching my nephew Rowen, it occurred to me with some kids how the three-point shot is ruining the game, or more specifically, how it is impacting individual kids in a negative way and ruining their form because of the way so many kids have to shoot it from nearly 20 feet away from the hoop.
