Geologists make trip to this area

By Sharla Sitzman

 

Everyone knows the two pink quartz boulders that are on 626 Road southeast of Table Rock. Two of them sit there where 713 Road intersects. Where did those boulders come from? Originally? They came from near the village of Corson, South Dakota, which is near Sioux Falls at some point not more than 2.58 million years ago. I learned that from one of the geologists who recently took a field trip around the Table Rock, Dubois, and Humboldt area.

Olivia Weinman, Dean Poskochil put new life in old houses

By Ray Kappel

Putting new life into old houses is the aim of Dean Poskochil and Oliva Weinman of Pawnee City.

They have been fixing up homes in Pawnee City for about 10 years. Their first house was for Dean’s brother Leon. He had health issues and needed a place to live. They refinished the floors and mostly painted it all. He was able to live there several years until he went into the nursing home.

They have purchased five houses since 2009 and have also worked on the home they live in. They have kept all but one for rentals and sold one. They have gotten much praise for this, especially an appraiser who told them, “What a wonderful thing you are doing, breathing new life into these old houses.”

By Ray Kappel

As all fair goers know, it is a true treat to watch kids and their animals, and the care they show in competing. One of those regular competitors, Kody Daily, bounced back from some bad news when she got ready for the Pawnee County 4-H Fair.

She had a new horse, a 5-yearold Appendix breed, called KD’s Magnum Prince. Appendix is a mix between a quarter horse and a thoroughbred. Even though he has thoroughbred in him, he will calm down in stressful situations.

EPA approves Sorghum Oil Pathway

WASHINGTON, DC—Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler approved sorghum oil as an eligible feedstock under the Renewable Fuel Standard during a signing event at EPA headquarters in Washington, D.C., with National Sorghum Producers leadership and Senators Jerry Moran (R-KS) and Deb Fischer (R-NE) and Congressman Roger Marshall (R-KS).

Fair weather, keen competition marked the Pawnee County 4-H Fair

By Ray Kappel

Wasn’t that an exciting 4-H Fair? We were blessed with good weather and a lot of spirit around the Fairgrounds. The whole week was filled with keen competition and drama. For instance, there was the conclusion of the Beef Show.

4-H veterans Clay Schaardt and Dana Christen squared off with their animals for the title of Supreme Champion Market Beef. Schaardt had a Charolais mix steer that had an end weight of 1288 while Christen had an Angus heifer that had an end weight of 1308. As they turned their animals to walk past the judge you could see he had a tough decision to make.
