Trillium closes three nursing homes in Nebraska

The future of Premier Estates in Pawnee City may be secure.

That’s despite the company that owns it, Trillium Healthcare Group, closing three nursing homes in Nebraska recently. Trillium is based in Bradenton, Florida and notified residents and staff at nursing homes in Crete, Fremont, and West Point that it plans to close their facilities, according to a story by Matt Olberding in the Lincoln Journal Star.

The nursing homes in Crete, Fremont, and West Point are due to close in August after a process where they try to find nursing homes for those residents.

Shelley Bang, nursing consultant for Trillium said to the Republican, “Pawnee City will remain open and will continue to provide care and services to the elderly populations of our community. “

Clown visits Table Rock

Plans for Table Rock’s fair continue. Will people be able to take it all in? Probably not! That’s the idea! There will be so much to see and do, especially for kids. As most know by now, the Table Rock Community Club abandoned fire works and embraced buskers. Yes, buskers – street performers! Clowns, magicians, jugglers, barbershop singers, Wild West outlaws, and more. The garden tractor pull and the Giddyup pony races will also return. All are privately sponsored, at least in part. Sponsorships are $250 and the Community Club pays any difference above that. Sponsors include mostly families, but also groups like Table Rock’s ZCBJ lodge, the Pawnee County Arts Council, and the Pawnee County Promotional Network.

PC football numbers game

Pawnee City High School is waiting to see if they have enough boys come out for football this season. The school hoped to co-op with HTRS for this year’s football season. But both schools were denied that request at a recent meeting of the Nebraska School Activities Board of Directors. The schools were unable to get out of their second year of their assigned schedules done by the NSAA.

They are hoping to co-op for 2020 and 2021. Both schools are suffering from declining numbers.

This will be a topic of discussion for both schools in the coming months, according to Pawnee City Schools Superintendent Brian Rottinghaus.

He said one concern about a future co-op is that the combined boy enrollment numbers would likely put them in Class C-1. The co-op team could opt to play Class C-2 11-man football or it could also opt to play 8-man football, according to Rottinghaus. He also said that team would be ineligible to participate in playoffs.

The recent rains washed away the bank of one of the tracks leading past the town. They call it the subgrade and it was damaged and noted by a train inspector at 3 a.m. several days ago. He saw that the train on the track at the time leaned to one side.
