“I accepted a deputy position with the Atchison County Sheriff's Office in Kansas last week, so my time in Pawnee is coming to an end.

Article Image Alt Text

With a few days to go till bids are opened, bricks fell from the Cornerstone Community Building Friday night.

Mayor Deb Klein got a call Friday that several bricks had come down and she was joined by members of the City Council to inspect.

The building is a renovation project for the city and bids for the renovation will be opened Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 2 p.m.

The bricks between the two upper windows on the front have come down. The City blocked off half the street due to some of the bricks landing near a parked car.

Klein said it doesn’t appear any more bricks fell Saturday or Sunday. She said the building is sagging more and the cracks are bigger.

Pawnee County Fair 2019

Article Image Alt Text

Every year, the Fairview Golf Course in Pawnee City turns into a magical place as the Pawnee County Ag Society, 4-H’ers, and local groups work together to set up the Pawnee County Fair. The 139th Pawnee County Fair included tractor pulls, a parade, rodeo, donkey polo, 4-H livestock shows and exhibits, midway shows, carnival games, kids’ entertainment, and the ever-popular mud volleyball.

Many followed the parade to the fairgrounds on Thursday to enjoy the chicken barbecue, the tunes and humor that comes with the Greg Blecha Trio, and the presentation of the Pioneer Farm Family awards. This year six families received Aksarben awards for keeping their farm in the family for 100 or 150 years. Loren Joe Stehlik shared the histories of each family and Fair Queen Lauren Moser presented plaques to the families of Jim & Virginia Chittick, Vernon Rinne, Bill Petrashek, Lucille Schaardt, Glenn Beethe, and Ed Workman.
