Southeast Nebraska Community Band built with common threads

Over the last twenty six years, well over two hundred people have been a part of the Southeast Nebraska Community Band. While all of those people share a love for music and performing, they represent a wide variety of careers and backgrounds. There have been medical professionals including a doctor, a physician’s assistant, a nurse, a physical therapist, and a pharmacy tech. There have been a number of teachers representing various subjects and age groups from elementary to college level, including several music teachers. At one time there were three postmasters and a retired rural carrierall in the same section. Science has not been left out with representation by a biologist, a chemist, and an astrophysicist.

Positive behavior re-enforced at school

The first month of the 2019-20 school year has been busy but productive for students and staff at Pawnee City Public Schools. Students in all grade levels are now participating in the “PBIS” (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) model this year. PBIS is a program that a school custom designs to best improve social, emotional and academic outcomes for all of its students, and the PBIS model is endorsed by the Departments of Education of the U.S. and all 50 States. This will be the third year for PBIS in the elementary building, and is in its first year of full implementation in the secondary building. Also this year, our new Amplify Science curriculum for grades K-8 is underway. Our teachers have had great success using this new curriculum to apply hands-on investigations, literacy-rich activities, and interactive digital tools.

Ruth Stephens, Hospital Administrator shared, “One of the most challenging pieces of recruiting is finding physicians who understand small towns and are willing to forgo the conveniences of the city. When you can find someone with a local tie to the area and a passion for small town life, you hit the jackpot. We are excited to have Abby join our medical team.”

Dennis Schaardt takes aim at issues

Dennis Schaardt says one key to the future of the area is to bring back the young people. He said too much emphasis is placed on going to Lincoln or Omaha to get a degree when the kids could go to trade school.

He says let them earn a trade to be plumbers or butchers or whatever the area needs and come back to live here.

Right now, this isn’t happening, he said. We are losing our youth to the cities and that is why the population in the area is shrinking. Schaardt, owner of Den’s Country Meats in Table Rock, is running for a Legislative seat for District 1 against incumbent Julie Slama and newcomer Janet Palmtag of Nebraska City.

He said what separates him from the two women are experience. He said he has been a businessowner for 34 years and will bring that business mentality to the Legislature. He has a wide variety of experience in local government from Commissioner to Village Board Chairman. He has served on the Fire Department and Rescue Squad.

Crop forecast is good for county

Local producer Don Bloss said the corn crop is coming along, especially in the past few warm days.

“I think overall we’re going to have a good corn crop depending on when it was planted and when it pollinated. We may have to wait quite awhile for the later planting corn to dry down or we may have to dry it as we harvest it,” he said.

Bloss said soybeans are going to be a very good crop as well.

“We had nearly ideal weather for soybeans during August which is when the soybeans generally make their yield. Again, we need several weeks of warm weather to finish up the later planted soybeans so they can beat the first freeze,” he said.
