Hummingbirds get ready to head south

Hummingbirds get ready to head south

Enjoy them while they are here because in a couple of weeks they will have flown away.

We are talking about hummingbirds. This bird has lots of admirers wherever they go, for they are small but beautiful creatures.

Many people put special feeders out for them during their stay in Nebraska. Migration extends into early October but by mid-October most have left the state, according to Joel Jorgensen of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

Did you see as many hummingbirds at your feeders this year as in the past? The neighbor’s feeders didn’t seem to attract them as much this year until the past few weeks.

Filling PC’s need for Assisted Living

Filling PC’s need for Assisted Living

For many years, Pawnee City has desired to one day have an assisted living facility in the Pawnee County area. All NCIP county surveys and Pawnee City Housing Studies have shown that an assisted living facility is the number one need for the area. With that vision in mind, the Pawnee Assisted Living Corporation, or PCAL, was incorporated in January of 2012. The facility would be located at 330 12th street, which is located across the street from the nursing home facility. The facility would consist of 22 apartments ranging in size from 334 to 571 square feet, which includes both studio and one bedroom apartments sizable for couples. Complete care services from the Pawnee County Memorial Hospital/Rural Health Clinic along with Premier Estates and long-term skilled nursing facility would be provided. The total cost of the facility including land, building construction and fixtures is $3,387,000.

Assisted Living may seek financial help

The Pawnee City Assisted Living (PCAL) Board of Directors may seek a loan to help pay their first payment on the loan that built the facility.

At the last City Council meeting the city entered into a loan agreement with PCAL.

PCAL has to come up with $161,000 by Oct. 19. This is its first payment to the USDA on the loan that made the facility possible.

PCAL got a boost last Friday when Pawnee County Promotional Network wrote PCAL a check for $10,000.

John DeFreece, Board Chairman, said he doesn’t know how much the city will have to chip in at this point. He did say it could be around something like 50-50 with PCAL paying half and the city paying half of the $161,000.

Old Library Shop Open House is Oct. 6

The Old Library Shop will have its Open House Oct. 6 from noon to 5 p.m.

It is situated in the old library, the Carnegie Library, that used to be the home of the Pawnee City Public Library. That building has been here since 1907.

Teresa Wymore bought the building from a well-known artist from Fairbury and then she started to brainstorm what she could do with the building. And the Old Library Shop is her creation.

It will have things like woodworking, jewels, women’s safety products, antiques and candy.

She said she wants this shop to show her support for the community with something unique to offer.

Patriotism is alive and well in Pawnee County! Just a week after the article in the Republican asked for public opinion concerning the purchases of new flag poles, money to purchase them had been pledged. The poles have arrived and eyelets are being welded on by the Pawnee City school shop class.

The Committee appreciates your prompt response and plans to have them in use for Veterans Day.
