Reflecting on MLK Day

Martin Luther King Day is Monday, January 21. It commemorates the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., an American civil rights leader who worked to end racial discrimination.

On a recent trip to New York City, several young men in Times Square tried to get me to stop and talk about their cause, almost certainly to get money. Their approach was hardly sincere. “Don’t be afraid of a Negro,” one said, trailing along for a bit as another attached to my sister, “I’m a Negro, don’t be afraid of me because I’m a Negro!” I just laughed and kept walking.

Architect talks to City about dental building

Jerry Berggren of Berggren Architects was at the Pawnee City City Council Monday night meeting to talk about the plans for the former Kobza Dental Building.

Berggren has submitted a minimum estimate of $310,254 to fix the building. That amount would be paid for by the ReUse Fund money that is available through the Nebraska Department of Economic Development. SENDD is involved in that process.

That amount has been approved by the ReUse Fund Committee, but it appears it may not be enough. Berggren stressed the $310,254 figure was only a starting point, the least amount they could get by with. To do the building in a comprehensive manner may take toward $600,000.

The city needs to come up with a detailed plan of repair and when it does will resubmit the plan for approval by the ReUse committee, which is made up of local people Jim Kubik, Joe Stehlik and Mayor Deb Klein.

Rough 2018 for Ag in U.S.

Agriculture had a rough year in 2018.

Local producer Don Bloss said this is the fifth year in a row farmers have had to deal with low commodity prices.

“To make it even more disappointing, Ag is catching the blunt end of trade wars where there have been significant tariffs placed on the products we raise,” he said.

County Road Department completes 5 projects in 2018

It was a good year for the Pawnee County Road Department overall.

They completed five CMP sites. CMP stands for corrugated metal pipes and they replace small-sized bridges. They were able to open a closed bridge Northeast of Burchard Lake. That road had been closed for a couple years and was limiting access to farm ground.

St.Anthony's more than half way in raising funds to repair its bells

The three bells in the east church tower of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church are in need of repair.

There is now a fundraising drive by the church to raise the $40,000 needed to make the repairs.

The bells were installed when the current church was built in 1926. The bells were mechanized in 1951 and since then have rung for a variety of uses: Angelus, Sunday Mass, First Communions, Confirmations, Weddings, First Masses, and tolled for funerals.
