Council mulls Cornerstone

Architect John Deacy was at a special meeting of the Pawnee City City Council Monday night to talk about options. He is Senior Associate Architect for Carlson West Povondra, the firm handling the renovations at the Cornerstone Community Building.

The Council is aiming for the figure of $256,000 for total cost of the project. They plan to do the exterior first and then the interior after that. But both aspects of the building could come in phases. It remains open what will be done.

They all decided to spend the week thinking of the options and then perhaps decide something at the regular meeting next Monday.

Deacy told the Council that the Historical Preservation people are on board with what is being planned so far. The bricks continue to be the primary concern for exterior renovation. He presented a cost of $60,000 to $120,000 to tuck point the present brick and then put on a finish that would have a historical look.

Colton Schaardt comes to Farm Bureau

A familiar name to the area has taken over as Farm Bureau Agent in Pawnee City. Colton Schaardt started his new duties April 1.

He has only been out of college three years but has packed on a variety of experience that will help in his job. He graduated SCC with a degree in Ag Business the spring of 2016. He grew up in a farm as the son of Dennis and Kim Schaardt of Table Rock. He was very active in 4-H and was one of the top competitors before he went off to school. He didn’t forget his little brother Clay when he went through 4-H as he was always on hand to advise him about his animals.

Colton was in Rep. Adrian Smith’s office for seven months, first as an intern and then as a staff assistant. While there he worked on several issues: health care, social security, tax, and agriculture.

Table Rock’s Circus Act spellbound many

As Memorial Day approaches, I like to think of the people who are buried in and near Table Rock. After all, I see more than tombstones. As a curator of the Table Rock Historical Society’s photograph collection, I get to see pictures of many of them. And I read and hear about them. Here’s an example.

A few years ago in the Table Rock Cemetery, I parted a mass of peonies and found a plain tombstone. ANDERSON, it says. Then there are two names. Mae, 1873-1932. Gardy, 1875-1936. Husband and wife, one would think. Who were they, what were their lives like? Little did I know, then, that I had a photograph of them.

Here it is. It wasn’t labeled. I assumed it was a publicity show for an act at the Table Rock fair. I assumed that these were people by the name of Cody. As the sign says, THE CODYS SHOOT GENUINE REMINGTON RIFLES AND SOLID BALL CARTRIDGES. The woman with the gun reminded me of my tough-as-nails grandma, Ines Roberts, but dressed as Mata Hari.

Karli Cabrera to sing at Royals game today

Karli Cabrera, a 2014 graduate of Pawnee City High School, will sing the National Anthem at a Kansas City Royals game today, May 2, at 1:15 p.m.

”It was a simple audition process. I sent in a video to their organization and was then asked to come for a live audition at the stadium. After that they confirmed that my audition was approved and I just had to wait for an open game,” she said by email.

Cabrera has been furthering her singing career ever since leaving high school. She graduated last year from Hastings College with a Bachelor of Music degree in voice performance. She is currently in her first year of the Master of Music degree in voice performance at the University of Kansas. At KU, she is getting involved in an opera, Benjamin Britten's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

SE Nebr. Community Band still going strong

Think back 26 years to January 1994. Roughly a dozen people met at the high school band room in answer to an ad placed by Linda Hodges. That ad asked for people who were interested in playing their instruments again. Since that time, well over 200 people have been members of the group that became known as the Southeast Nebraska Community Band. The Band has done over 400 performances over the last 25 years and has had 8 regular directors and several more who have stepped up when the need arose.

The Band has done performances from as far north as Boone, IA to as far south as Branson, Mo. The regular seasonal performances keep them mainly in southeast Nebraska, with a couple of forays into Iowa and Missouri. The usual performances are for local summer events or festivals, but the Band has opened for The Irish Tenors, played for a Community Band festival, played for anniversaries and retirements, and this year will perform for a wedding reception.
