Ed Raper has been making appearances for the last two years in a special uniform and reciting a poem called The Toast to the Flag. The poem was written in 1917 and was memorized by Raper over the course of two to three months. He recites it at Veterans Day performances, but will recite it for any group that asks for it. It is a dramatic rhyming poem about the wonders of the flag of this country.

PCHS One-Act on to state

By Ray Kappel

It’s on to state for the Pawnee City One- Act cast. They topped a tough district Monday afternoon at Tri-County. Second place went to Nebraska City Lourdes and third went to Nebraska Lutheran in a tight race. Coach Laura Bloss is pretty pleased with her group. “It feels great. It's hard because just like most teams at districts, we always put so much time and energy into the season's production, but only one team walks away with the opportunity to move on. There were easily 5 teams from our district that could have competed at state this year. Super tough. So, it's both a mixture of that realization and understanding how those teams feel and also relief that we were the lucky team to walk away on top.”

This is the start of something big

By Ray Kappel

On an overcast day last Tuesday, Nov. 22, the ground was broken for the Assisted Living Facility in Pawnee City. It was a tremendous day for Pawnee City and a statement about what volunteerism is all about. This building came to this start because so many people gave of their free time and talents. It should go down as a proud day in the city’s history. You don’t really see shadows when the sun isn’t shining, but there was one large shadow over the proceedings, and that is the shadow of the late Alan Richard. He was the one person who got the project going some 10 years ago. He was mentioned by Chairman John DeFreece, among the many others he mentioned for commendation for their efforts. On hand for the ceremony, was Richard’s son Joe and his Alan’s wife Martie.
