Two PC First Lego League teams are state bound

Four-sixth grade teams of Pawnee City Schools and one after-school team participated in the First Lego League challenge. First Lego League is an international competition organized by FIRST for elementary and middle school students (ages 9–14 in the United States and Canada, 9–16 elsewhere). Each year in August, First Lego League introduces a scientific and real-world challenge for teams to focus and research.

This year’s theme for the challenge is HydroDynamics. The HydroDynamics challenge asks participants to come up with a way to fix part of the human water cycle. Students competed in three aspects of the challenge; project, robot game, and core values. The project has students research a topic to come up with a solution to improve the human water cycle. The robot game has students program a Lego robot to perform tasks on a course. The core values show students how working together, solving problems, and facing challenges are done together for the good of the team.

Table Rock photographer loves recording farm scenes

By Ray Kappel

Photography has been a hobby of Harry Griebling for 30 some years.

He recently opened a gallery for photography in Table Rock called, quite simply, The Gallery. It is located next to the bar his sister Judy Stockholm will soon be opening, hopefully sometime in February. He has been helping out with the renovation of the bar, being a jack of trades and master of none, as he put it.

He made his living as diesel mechanic and drove trucks in Colorado. He is a veteran of the Korean War. His tie to the area is his sister Ethel Ann Stillinger, whose family used to own the bank in Table Rock. He came out to work on her house one fall and liked it enough to move here.

The future of Pawnee County Transit

 

What would you do if you suddenly found yourself without a vehicle or other means of personal transportation? Living in rural southeast Nebraska this could present a problem, even for those who live within a community that provides a local grocery store, health care, beauty/barber shop, pharmacy, financial institution or other types of services we all need and rely on. Not only does Pawnee County Transit provide services within Pawnee City and throughout the County, but regular scheduled rides are available to communities such as Beatrice, Lincoln, and Omaha.

The low-cost Transit program is operated under contract with Pawnee County and is available to the general public.

2017 a thing of the past

By Ray Kappel News Editor

The year of 2017 has slipped from our grip. There is one way to look at a year like that: backward.

This is the yearly Year in Review where we pause to remember all the great stuff that happened to us but also to recall some of our heartaches. January It is announced that the Pawnee County Memorial Hospital/Clinic was named one of the best in the nation. The reporter visited the hospital this summer for a dislocated middle finger. He thanks the staff for putting his finger back in place, a finger that is vital to his job; he means typing of course. The First Lego League kids got a team into the state tournament.

This is the school project where the kids solve some problem using robots. They are highly innovative and entertaining and we can only imagine what this year’s edition will look like.

Producers look for Farm Bill in 2018

By Ray Kappel News Editor

In the new year, it is likely that discussion will heat up over the 2018 Farm Bill.

Local producer Don Bloss said there will probably be small modifications in the bill from the 2014 Farm Bill. No major changes are coming, he believes. He had the opportunity last summer of speaking about the Farm Bill with the two Nebraska Senators and the three Representatives at the State Fair. He was part of the Sorghum commodity booth and all five of the politicians came by. “

They were taking notes, getting info,” he said.
