Showstopper excellence

It’s a peaceful Thursday night and everyone is fast asleep, when suddenly at 2:30am the sound of a pager goes off. After that, all too familiar sound has stopped, it is announced that there is a two vehicle accident with injuries out in the county.

The dedicated members of the Pawnee City Volunteer Fire Dept. and the Pawnee City Ambulance wake up, and leave their families to respond to this emergency, not knowing what they will run into on this call. This is just one example of the countless number of unexpected emergencies that these brave men and women are faced with throughout each year.

Should You Check for Radon?

Radon is a gas which seeps out of bedrock and into your home. How can you tell if your home has too much radon?

There is only one way--test for it. Certain areas of the country have higher levels than others do, but that is only a generalization. In areas of high risk, some houses can have low levels. Likewise, in areas of low risk, some houses can have high levels. There are many reasons for this. Some houses overlie outcroppings of rocks that are releasing greater amounts of radon. Some houses are more likely than others to allow the gas to seep into the house, generally through cracks in the foundation and holes for plumbing pipes

By Ray Kappel News Editor

 

Elaine Sheldon has been with Premier Estates for 27 years. She was a CNA when she started and worked at that job for two years, then was put in medical records for 23 years. The last three years she has been Activities Director.

The job, as you can imagine, keeps her hopping. She leads the games the residents play and arranges music and other programs for them. She is in charge of the religious services, having several area churches trade off on conducting the observances. She gets to know the residents so she can better meet their interests. To do that, she interviews each one to see what kind of activities they will like.
