Sutton seniors down Fairbury, Pleasant Dale

Coming off of their big tournament win in Alma May 27 and 28, the Sutton Senior Legion baseball team rattled off two more big wins during early action, claiming a 7-2 win on the road over Fairbury May 30, followed by a 3-1 squeeker over Pleasant Dale, in the home confines of DLD Park in Sutton.

The wins improved the Post 61 Seniors to 6-1, leading into a Sunday night game with Dannebrog-Cairo- Boelus (DCB) in Boelus.

The trip to Fairbury would start a little shaky for the Sutton crew May 30, as both teams remained scoreless through the first four innings of play, before Fairbury claimed a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning on a pair of singles.

Sutton came to full life in the top of the sixth inning however, exploding for all seven of their runs in the frame.

Edgar Dice Run has great turnout Sunday

The 12th annual American Legion Riders Dice Run, hosted by the Edgar American Legion Post, welcomed a huge turnout for the annual event, with 222 bikes taking part in the event held, June 4.

The dice run, which is similar to a traditional motorcycle poker run, but instead of cards, the dice run format features riders picking up beads at designated stops.

When each rider returned to the Edgar American Legion Club, each rider rolled dice multiple times, with the total of their dice helping to decide the top three winners in the annual event.

This year’s winners of the dice run included first place recipient Jason Merryman of Hastings.

Merryman scored 110 points, while second place winner Jeff Schriner of Orleans scored 109 points. Edgar’s Kalen Shuck finished third overall scoring 106 points.

Effective government to grow Nebraska

You’ll often hear me say that the vision for my administration is to grow Nebraska. While private sector job creators are the economic engine of Nebraska, state government helps provide the framework and infrastructure that can either support or hinder growth.

Over the past two years, my team has worked to make state government more effective, more efficient and more customer-focused to help grow Nebraska. Whether it’s launching our first-in-the-nation reemployment program, or putting more services online, our team is making state government work for the taxpayers of Nebraska.

Our first-in-the-nation reemployment program has been producing real results in the year and a half since it’s been launched.

A look back at the 2017 legislative session

At the conclusion of the recent legislative session a reporter asked senators to describe the session in a single word. I chose “misinformed”. The Legislature addressed a number of extremely complex policy topics, including a major tax reform package, developing a new budget in light of slowed revenue growth, several programs that made changes to existing property tax authorities and deductions, as well as education issues. A shocking amount of misinformation was disseminated to voters through email, social media and even inaccurate content in some mainstream media.

Relay For Life of Clay Co. set for Saturday

There are several reasons to be a part of Relay For Life, the most important being a member of a group that is continually fighting back against cancer, and supporting those who are or have had to go through it.

Of course, there are other reasons—it’s a great form of exercise and Relay brings communities together. For those on the Relay For Life of Clay County Event Leadership Team, there are many more reasons as to why they continue to do what they do.
