Steinauer busy with projects

The Village Board of Steinauer is probably pretty happy they hired Suzanne Borcher to be clerk back in 2016.

Borcher has been grant writing and the Village is seeing the benefit. (The Village Board is made up of Byford Schmit, Paul Schmit, Craig Borcher, and Kristen Herrick.)

First, there is the new park equipment and base. She learned that some other community got a Game and Parks grant and she decided to go after one for Steinauer. They got that one but just last week they learned they got a Civic and Community Center Finance Fund grant to also help pay for the project.

They got $46,602 from Game and Parks and $65,809 from the CCCFF grant. They also got $5,000 from PCPN, $2,000 Lodging Tax grant; $2,000 from their breakfast fundraiser; $1,175 from the Schmit Garage Sale Concession Stand; and $200 from a donation.

Local fishermen go south to fish

We have a fish story for this week.

First we start with a little background: Wikipedia says - The Spoonbill, or American paddlefish (Polyodon spathula), is a species of basal ray-finned fish closely related to sturgeons in the order Acipenseriformes. Fossil records of paddlefish date back over 300 million years, nearly 50 million years before dinosaurs first appeared. American paddlefish are smooth-skinned freshwater fish commonly called paddlefish, but are also referred to as Mississippi paddlefish, spoon-billed cats, or spoonbills. They are one of only two extant species in the paddlefish family, Polyodontidae. The other is the Chinese Paddlefish in China.

Bloodmobile today

Give back to the community with Red Cross blood drive!

The Bloodmobile will be here in Pawnee City at the Poteet Hall on Thursday, April 18th, from 12 noon to 6:00 p.m.

The Red Cross blood drive coincides core values of giving back to the community. Blood is a perishable product that can only come from volunteer blood donors. With someone in the U.S. needing blood every two seconds, blood products must be constantly replenished, according to the Red Cross. With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor.

Eve Beethe: One-Act wonder and Speech champion

I have some sad news for Pawnee City High School Speech and One-Act fans: Eve Beethe will be graduating this year.

Not really sad, of course, but the Pawnee City High School senior has been a joy to watch since coming on the Speech and One-Act scene as a freshmen. She will be missed by fans and Coach Laura Bloss alike.

“She is any coach’s dream--motivated with high expectations, she shuns the drama, she pushes herself, she leads by example, and she's all about doing what's best for the team. Eve understands the details and is easily coached. One-act and Speech are all about making tiny changes to minuscule details when it gets down to what puts one good team over another. Eve understands that and is very coachable. Some kids do the same thing over and over, but she understands directions very well,” said Bloss.

Before going on, let’s go over this student’s achievements.

Palm Sunday meditation

Who would celebrate death? Perish the thought! Death is the result of sin. The Lord told Adam, “In the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die.” The curse of sin is death so why would anyone celebrate it? Yet that is what we do on Palm Sunday - the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem - truly a great day. Many believed in Him but were soon to be thrown into utter shock when Jesus was crucified. Others despised Jesus and were elated when He was condemned. However, as we look back to the day of Jesus’ arrival in the ‘city of peace’ (which is the meaning of the name Jerusalem) we rejoice in the arrival of our Savior.

City approves Bob Miller to oversee renovation

Bob Miller was hired as Project Coordinator for the new City Hall. He is already the Project Coordinator for the Cornerstone Community Building.

He was appointed by Mayor Deb Klein and approved by the City Council.

Mayor KIein said he will be paid $35 an hour for each project. There is no cap on what he earns as Klein said they don’t know costs yet. She said he has to deal with the historical preservation people for the projects and that can’t be estimated.

Neither she nor the Council felt the need to advertise for the position, she said. She felt Miller was a good choice because as she put it he can get the job done. She said he worked to get the other buildings fixed and this made him a good choice to continue on the buildings.
