Column of a lot of topics

RAMBLES

Last weekend I was able to join several members of the Allegro Wolf Arts Center Board, a friend from New York, and community members for a Murder Mystery Dinner called “Easy Money.”

This was the first time I had ever done a murder mystery, and it was amazing!

My character was Detective Jesse Van Eck, who came to investigate the murder of my sister, Vee. It was fun watching all the suspects—who, in my opinion, were all crazy—mingle and try to sway the opinion with attendees of the dinner.

Thank you everyone who came out to support Allegro Wolf and our summer Broadway Academy!

A personal reflective week ahead

BULL

This is a week for me that always takes me back over the years as I was growing up in my family’s community newspapers in Shelton and Gibbon. It’s the 145th annual Nebraska Press Association’s convention, and this year, because I’ve been “around the block” just a few years, it’ll be a strongly reflective year.

As I’ve shared many times in this log of information I call the Bull, my column title is not original to me....It was my dad’s column title for over 30 years that he penned the Bull.

I revived the title when I returned to the business in 2009. This year also marks the 25th year since my father received one of NPA’s most distinguished honors, the Master-Editor Publisher award.

As I walk the halls of the Kearney Holiday Inn and take in sessions, I’ll not only walk and learn with my dad on my mind, but I’ll also be surrounded by many that have molded my life in this business, both in person and in spirit.

Sutton CTE program continues to flourish

BY WHITNEY WINTER

As the Career and Technical Educators at Sutton Public School gear up for their last year for the reVISION grant, they continue to open their school to outsiders for tours and a chance to learn about their Career Pathway Program.

Sutton Public Schools started the journey of converting their curriculum to what it is now, back in 2013-14. There was no program that existed at the school prior to Secondary Principal Brandy Thompson starting at Sutton, that she knows of.

Thompson and SPS’s Guidance Counselor Sharon Zoucha consider 2013-15 to be the planning period before any significant changes were made. During this time, Zoucha and Thompson visited and observed schools that had career pathways and shared the Career Pathway Program with the superintendent, Curriculum Committee, and the school board.

Local farmland values decline, reflecting state of farm economy

This is a hard time for Nebraska farmers.

For the fifth year in a row, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln survey has found that the state’s agricultural land values have declined—a continued reflection of increasingly tight profit margins.

Statewide, average farmland values have dropped approximately 20 percent since reaching a high of $3,314 per acre in 2014, according to the 2019 Nebraska Farm Real Estate Market Survey.

Sutton sends 6 to state

TORY DUNCAN | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Senior Lee Carlson works over Logan View’s Martin Valencia during the 126 pound district title match Saturday afternoon in Albion. Carlson will take a perfect 44-0 record to this weekend’s state meet, following three big wins at Boone Central High School.

The Sutton wrestling team opened the C-2 District meet on fire, having all but one of their nine wrestlers reach at least the consolation semifinal round, but a tough final two rounds would cut the number of Mustangs from eight possible qualifiers to a very strong group of six state meet qualifiers.

Led by senior Lee Carlson’s district title in the 126 pound class, Sutton would capture the fourth-place spot in the team race, scoring 117 team points. David City outscored second place Logan View 235.5-196.5, while Wood River finished 10 points ahead of the Mustangs.

The district title for Carlson at 126 didn’t come without a challenge, after a first round bye, Carlson disposed of Twin Rivers’ Beau Zoucha in 1:13, before having to deal with a pesky Daniel Escandon of Gibbon in the semifinal round.
