By Ray Kappel.
 
Eric Clapton made a brief appearance at the ZCBJ Hall Saturday, and then quietly disappeared into the night. Maybe it wasn’t really Eric Clapton. Insiders at the Hall know who it was, it was just another brave soul having his first try at Karaoke. Let’s call him Eric for the sake of the story.

By Ray Kappel.
 
“How much does it weigh?” Pawnee City Public Library Director Lola Seitz asked the fourth graders gathered at the library Wednesday, April 16. The students from Pawnee City, Lewiston, and HTRS were at the library to pick up their Golden Sower Awards. The question was about the Sower on the State Capitol Building. No one got the answer; it was the toughest question afterall. The reporter couldn’t answer it either and was surprised to learn it weighs 19,000 pounds.
