Sacred Heart to repair stainedglass windows

If you have ever attended church at Sacred Heart in Burchard or just driven by, you are aware of how beautiful of a church it is.

Right now, the stained-glass windows need repair and they can use any donation, large or small. Their fundraiser scheduled for the Burchard Community Building has been postponed.

There are 27 stained glass windows in the church. Repairs needed include removing each window and rebuilding its framework and installing storm glass on the window exteriors. There are several windows with cracks in the stained glass itself and repairs to most damaged glass will be carried out as funds permit. A bid of $40,000 has been submitted for these repairs and they have raised $37,000.

Two local races in primary

There are two local races on the primary election ballot: Commissioner District 1 and Pawnee City City Council. This is our first story about the local election. More coverage is planned when we get closer to the election date.

The Commissioners became a wide-open affair when Incumbent Dennis Schaardt announced he was running for legislature. He cannot run for Commissioner again this time because of the election rules.

Three candidates for Commissioners have filed, all Republican. Former Lt. Gov and former State Senator Lavon Heidemann has weighed in as a candidate as have Ben Laun and Kenny Edwards. Laun is the current Mayor of Table Rock and Edwards is on the Village Board. Edwards was the top vote getter among Village Board candidates in the last election.

That means that race will be decided in the primary as there are no Democrats on the ballot.

PA Juli Habegger has nominated him for a prestigious award at UNMC which you can read about below. There was a packed lobby at the hospital/ clinic for his Open House and much humor and a few tears were part of the afternoon. This is her Habegger’s letter to UNMC)

Table Rock building in trouble

Table Rock building in trouble

Sunday afternoon at around Noon, a loud sound was heard in Table Rock. Nobody knew what it was for a short while. Then they saw the east wall of the Odd Fellows building. That is the building at the southwest corner of the Square, the other corners being occupied by the Argus Museum and the State Bank of Table Rock. The wooden structure that sheltered the cast iron steps to the old Odd Fellows lodge on the second floor had broken loose, as had the outer sheathing of the brick wall. Bricks continued to pop off in the afternoon.

Beethe Prairie a symbol

Driving Highway 50 toward Tecumseh you might have missed it.

Setting off to the right as you go north near the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church is the Verlyn Beethe Prairie.

So?

Well, if you are into conservation and the natural beauty of our area it is an important piece of land. Saving our prairies should be a priority with everyone. The prairies tie us to our forefathers who came here to make a new life. They broke ground and we lived to tell about it.

So, we are telling.
