and cornstalks covered in moisture.

Weather-related harvest trouble been brewing since summer

BY RITA BRHEL

It’s not hard to imagine how the latest stretch of wet weather has delayed Clay County’s farmers yet again. Combines sit stranded in fields abandoned midway through cutting, and the grain elevators have been eerily quiet for early October.

But the truth is, this fall’s biggest harvest troubles hasn’t been the rain. This past summer’s weather was setting up crops for challenges long before the fields dried down.

#CancerSucks BrookeRocks

By Ashley D. Swanson

When you’re young, sometimes you don’t truly understand the gravity of any given situation. Most of the time, you sit there in silence or ask a ton of questions, only to be given half answers or blank stares.

My family, like so many others, is plagued with cancer. For the generation growing up now, and for our parents and remaining grandparents, I truly hope we don’t develop it because I know and have seen what it can do to a person and those around them.

Winter district action to be a distance race

By Tory Duncan

October is just one week old and I’ve already got my mind on the month of February. As you read the Bull this week, some of you are going to be thinking in your head, “Duncan, why are you already talking about district wrestling and boys and girls basketball?”

Well.....Here’s why! The Nebraska School Activities Association came out with the district wrestling set up for Feb. 8-9, and the 2018-19 sub-district boys and girls basketball. I’ve got to say, for us here at the Clay County News, we’ll be running!

Soybean yields good despite harvest challenges

By RITA BRHEL

Between stained seed, flat pods, pod shatter and lodging plants, soybean farmers have had enough to worry about this harvest.

Yet despite these obstacles and weather-related worries of trying to get the crop out of the field, this summer’s timely rains appear to have given potential yields enough boost to possibly offset this year’s challenges.

Women’s Honor Flight humbling, unforgettable for Sutton’s Higby

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

At 2:30 in the morning, most people would not want to hear a band playing at top notch, nor would they want hordes of people cheering. For the 135 women attending the 12th annual Honor Flight, however, this noise hit their hearts and brought tears to their eyes as they boarded a plane for a once-ina- lifetime trip.

For 10 hours, these women veterans entered areas of Washington D.C. where intricate, heart-affecting memorials were designed in honor of many.

The Sept. 24 flight, hosted by Bill and Evonne Williams, featured veterans, pilots, crew, and media personnel, all strictly women.

The decision to host an all-women’s flight came just three days before Christmas, 2017—in less than a year, contacts were made and the flight became a reality for several women veterans across the U.S.
