Thanksgiving!

As we all know, Thanksgiving is a time of festive family gathering and joy. We eat, visit, maybe partake in family traditions like decorating the house for Christmas or like watching (or playing) a favorite game together. Then we eat some more – often until it hurts. If we get along well within our family dynamic, we experience a blessed time of rest and relaxation, - all very refreshing for life before we get back to the rigors of our daily life.

Savannah Nider on her way with recording contract

I was sitting in a pew at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Steinauer watching the church kids put on the Living Stations of the Cross a few years ago. I couldn’t see her, as she was in the balcony behind me, but that voice of hers was so stirring I haven’t forgotten it. It literally floated out over the audience and into everyone’s heart.

I wanted to know who that was and it turns out it was Savannah Nider, then a student at Pawnee City High School.

Lady bow hunter, son get two bucks

By Julie Pierce

Two exciting days of hunting came back to back for me this year. The first, my son harvesting his first bow buck. The second, me letting an arrow fly and bagging my second bow buck ever.

The afternoon was overcast and gray. A light breeze was blowing through the timber that is nestled next to a bean field. After crawling into the stand, Justin and I reviewed scenarios that might play out if a deer would come in. We discussed distances and when to draw. He was so confident, even saying, “I’m going to get one tonight.”
