Sunny day for consignment sale in Table Rock

It was consignment sale day in Table Rock, always the third Saturday in March. Some years have seen snow, some ice, some glorious Spring days with flowers sprouting. The outcome this year was unpredictable with recent heavy snows, but the day turned out gloriously sunny. But the ground was soaked flooding north, west, and east of us the topic of conversation.

New firehall, architect discussed

A new fire hall and a new architect for the Cornerstone Community Building were discussed at the Monday night Pawnee City City Council meeting.

Fire Chief David Glynn and Assistant Fire Chief Mike Habegger were at the meeting to see if the Council would be interested in the idea of a new fire hall. A new one is needed for space reasons. Glynn said the trucks are getting bigger and right now they have to park the ladder truck across the street from the present fi re hall.

The idea is only now being examined. SENDD will help see about what state funding is available to help pay for it.

The Council was in favor of the idea but no action was taken. The firemen are going to look into the matter further.

Lent begins our time of reflection

March 6 is Ash Wednesday. The ashes are traditionally the remnants of last year’s Palm Sunday palms. In Jesus’ culture it was common to put ashes on the head as a symbol of mourning or of regret. Ash Wednesday is a day of introspection, prayer and confession as we consider our imperfections and admit that Jesus suffered and died for each of us.

Traditionally Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent. Christians focus on the temptations of Jesus during the forty days he fasted and prayed in the wilderness in preparation for his ministry. We consider Lent to be the forty days before Easter, not counting Sundays. (Every Sunday is a mini Easter celebration of resurrection)

Troopers chase vehicle in Pawnee Co.

A Nebraska State Trooper attempted to stop a vehicle for speeding at 78 miles per hour in a 55 miles per hour zone on Highway 8 near 627 Avenue at approximately 11:00 a.m. Thursday, February 28. The trooper started a pursuit when the suspect vehicle, a Toyota 4 Runner, refused to stop and turned onto 627 Avenue. Shortly thereafter, the vehicle drove into a pasture and continued northbound in the field before it became stuck more than a mile into the field. The suspect then fled on foot. He was apprehended about 90 minutes later by Johnson County Deputies hiding on 712 Road.

Because he had fallen through ice in a creek file fleeing and was then found hiding in the snow, the suspect, Richard Walker, 51, of Savannah, Missouri, was taken to the hospital in Tecumseh for treatment. He was cited and released for traffic violations and flight to avoid arrest. NSP was assisted by the sheriff’s offices from Pawnee County, Johnson County, and Richardson County.

Harold Lloyd film fest includes Burchard stop

He dangled from a monstrous clock high high high above a busy city street. The façade of a building slammed forward onto him, leaving him surrounded by a window. He climbed the sheer side of a skyscraper. He was the boy next door. He got the girl. He was silent film star Harold Lloyd, an equal of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. And, as most of us know, he was born in a tiny home in Burchard in 1893. Last weekend, Beatrice paid our Harold Lloyd’s memory a great honor with a three-day film festival. The film festival was put on by Gage County Historical Society's Gage County Classic Film Institute partnering with the Beatrice Public Library and the Beatrice Community Players Theatre. It was presented in conjunction with the Harold Lloyd Museum in Burchard, which is owned and run by the Pawnee County Promotional Network, and the Welsh Heritage Centre in Wymore, where guests also traveled.
