Karli Cabrera to sing at Royals game today

Karli Cabrera, a 2014 graduate of Pawnee City High School, will sing the National Anthem at a Kansas City Royals game today, May 2, at 1:15 p.m.

”It was a simple audition process. I sent in a video to their organization and was then asked to come for a live audition at the stadium. After that they confirmed that my audition was approved and I just had to wait for an open game,” she said by email.

Cabrera has been furthering her singing career ever since leaving high school. She graduated last year from Hastings College with a Bachelor of Music degree in voice performance. She is currently in her first year of the Master of Music degree in voice performance at the University of Kansas. At KU, she is getting involved in an opera, Benjamin Britten's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

SE Nebr. Community Band still going strong

Think back 26 years to January 1994. Roughly a dozen people met at the high school band room in answer to an ad placed by Linda Hodges. That ad asked for people who were interested in playing their instruments again. Since that time, well over 200 people have been members of the group that became known as the Southeast Nebraska Community Band. The Band has done over 400 performances over the last 25 years and has had 8 regular directors and several more who have stepped up when the need arose.

The Band has done performances from as far north as Boone, IA to as far south as Branson, Mo. The regular seasonal performances keep them mainly in southeast Nebraska, with a couple of forays into Iowa and Missouri. The usual performances are for local summer events or festivals, but the Band has opened for The Irish Tenors, played for a Community Band festival, played for anniversaries and retirements, and this year will perform for a wedding reception.

New Architect for building

Carlson West Povondra has been approved as the architect for the Cornerstone Community Building.

That approval came on a 4-0 vote at the Pawnee City City Council at the regular meeting Monday night.

Bob Miller, who is the Project Coordinator for the building renovation, recommended the Council approve the Omaha architectural firm. He said the contract with them is a good deal for the city. One reason he says that is the fee. The firm will be paid no more than $38,000 for their services, no matter what the final bid for the project is. That is about half what the first firm they selected was asking. Preliminary cost of the project has been put at $256,000, but that could change when it is finally bidded.

Another reason Miller likes them is that they are anxious to do things the way the city wants them. Mayor Deb Klein commented that the deal was going to be good for the city, too.

Garden tips from an expert

This is an interview Ray Kappel did with Nicole Stoner, Nebraska Extension Educator, about what do with your garden and lawn this time of year.

Q: What should people be doing right now in the gardens to get ready to plant?

A: Don’t get too excited to clean up garden beds this year. I think we are hopefully through the worst of the cold weather, but if cold weather returns it could damage plants that were recently uncovered. If plant material was left around the plants through the winter, it acts to insulate the crown of the plant. If the plant material is removed, cold weather can damage the plant. If you already removed your plant material and a late frost or freeze warning comes through, just push extra mulch back over the plants for the evening hours to protect it. When the temperature warms up the following day, uncover the plant again to allow sunlight to it.

Happy Easter 2019!

THE CREEDS

Christians profess in The Apostles and Nicene Creeds that they believe Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion and burial. In the same Creeds Christians profess their belief in the resurrection of their own bodies after death. These resurrection beliefs have come down through the millennia from the eyewitnesses who recorded what they saw in the Bible’s four Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles.

JESUS' RESURRECTION
