Governor Ricketts stops in Pawnee City for Town Hall

By Ray Kappel

 

Gov. Pete Ricketts, incumbent Republican, was in Pawnee City Thursday morning to hold a Town Hall with voters. They met at the Union Bank and Trust. Steve Nelson, president of the Nebraska Farm Bureau, was making the road trip with Ricketts. Ricketts is battling Bob Krist, Democrat, in the fall election. Ricketts made statements about his policies before opening the meeting up for questions. Ricketts spoke on a variety of topics, starting with trade and the development of new markets. In introducing the governor, Steve Nelson said Gov. Ricketts has led several trade missions that have resulted in more Nebraska products being sold overseas. Agriculture is of vital importance to the state as one in four jobs directly or indirectly is tied to Agriculture.

Living History Day teaches many students

Pawnee City fifth grade teachers and sponsors salute the flag being raised at the Table Rock park. Pawnee City fifth grade teacher Hadley Sejkora gave this report on Living History Day held last week. "We had 23 5th grade students attend Living History Day in Table Rock this year.

This is my third year taking the 5th graders over, but the first year we had a run in with the weather.

The kids were able to make it to all the displays that were inside but we missed a few in the afternoon due to the rain. The kids still seemed to really enjoy the day and I think the rain will make a lasting memory. It is always fun to listen to the kids talk about what their favorite exhibit was. The best one is never unanimous, it seems that all the exhibits get picked as a favorite by at least one student. The 5th graders really learn a lot and I hope that they continue to put it on in the future."

Table Rock Fair low key but fun

By Sharla Sitzman

Many little towns once had a fair. Elk Creek had a fair. One year there was a special train scheduled from Table Rock to Elk Creek for fair goers. Dubois had a fair. My favorite picture is of the float bearing the Lad Trecek Band, including Nettie Stehlik at her piano. Humboldt and Pawnee City have hosted county fairs for years.

And then there is the Table Rock Fair. It is the modern incarnation of fairs going back to the Old Settlers Picnics of the 1880s, to the Midsummer Frolic, and to the decades of the Table Rock Free Festival. The Midsummer Frolic? That was in 1927 and the name not lightly given, there having been a contest to name it. It was quite a day in Table Rock, with merchant ads inviting customers to come in out of the heat and enjoy the electric fans. And local boy Dave Johnson took on Jimmy O’Day’s Wrestling Bear, to the enthusiastic cries of “Come on, Dave!” and “Come on, Bear!”
