Carl Linnerson retires from HTRS after coaching speech, mock trial

By Ray Kappel

Carl Linnerson is retiring from HTRS after 32 years of teaching. He will retire at the end of the school year.

Linnerson is kind of a famous person in this area because his Speech teams and Mock Trial teams have been very competitive against the state’s best.

Linnerson, originally from Genoa, Nebraska, became interested in history as a kid. He used to watch James Burk and his “Connections” show. Burk tried to show that the things of today are connected to the things of the past.

Nebraska Legislature fails to act on property tax reform

By Ray Kappel

“It’s a sad thing they can’t get anything done,” Dennis Schuster said on his return from the legislative battles over property tax reform.

He attended the legislative sessions Thursday and Friday where two bills we talked about in a previous issue of the Republican were passed over.

The speaker of the legislature has three hours to work with a bill and in that time calls a bill up for a vote if it has a chance of passing. Gov. Ricketts has been backing LB 947 which seeks to give a property tax credit on your income tax. That bill called for $50 million to come out of the Reserve Fund to fund it.

Delaney Rottman wins bike at Shrine Circus

On March 8, 2018, the Pawnee City 3rd graders took their annual field trip to the Shrine Circus. As the students entered Lancaster Event Center they were excited about the circus. To their surprise, the students were given a program that was purchased by a community member. Inside each program was a chance to win a bike.

Then during intermission, the ringmaster would announce the winner of the bike. When intermission finally came the students had forgotten about winning a bike. They were too excited talking about all the cool acts they had just watched. Then out of the blue, the ringmaster announced Delaney Rottman you are the winner of a new bike. Delaney tore from her seat with excitement to go claim her new bike. Each year the circus is a trip to remember but when you win a bike it is a memory that will last forever.
