PCHS One-Act State Runnerup

Humphrey St. Francis was first and Pawnee City High School was second at the State D1 One-Act competition. Pawnee City lost by a rank point and cumulative point, so very close.

There were several awards handing out to PC kids. Outstanding Performances - Kodenn Koester, Reyanna Tegtmeier, and Eve Beethe. Beethe was D1 Outstanding Female Performer.

“I feel good! We're a little bummed that it was 2nd and not 1st, but not enough to not realize what an accomplishment it is and to be grateful for the opportunity to perform at state,” coach Laura Bloss said.

Recalling a relative that was at Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941 Sharla Sitzman

On December 7, 1941 at 9:48 a.m., the attack on Pearl Harbor began. It was led by 358 Imperial Japanese planes, coming in two waves. Their main targets: eight battleships at dock. All eight were damaged, four of them sunk. It was all over in 90 minutes.

My dad’s cousin Art Dupree, a farm kid from near St. Joe, was on the USS Arizona. Cousin Art was one of the 2,335 military men who died that day. Virtually half of them, almost 1200, died with cousin Art on that ship. His name is on the huge list of names at the Arizona Memorial. I never knew him. He died before I was born.

I did know my mom’s uncle Raymond McBeth of Brownville. He was on another battleship, the Maryland, the “Fighting Mary.” When asked about it in his last years, he would tell what happened that day, carefully choosing his words and speaking as if he actually were looking into that distant past and describing what he was watching.

New Ag Facility may be coming to Lewiston

A new Ag Facility may be in Lewiston Consolidated Schools’ future.

The school’s Foundation is currently raising funds for the new facility, but a construction date has not been set. They will continue to raise funds until they have enough to put the project before the school board.

The school recently added a new building to the school, but was unable to fund a new Ag building at that time. It was on a list of future projects and Foundation President Steve Knoche said they are now actively moving on the idea.
