Rough 2018 for Ag in U.S.

Agriculture had a rough year in 2018.

Local producer Don Bloss said this is the fifth year in a row farmers have had to deal with low commodity prices.

“To make it even more disappointing, Ag is catching the blunt end of trade wars where there have been significant tariffs placed on the products we raise,” he said.

Julie Slama State Senator for District 1

Governor Pete Ricketts has announced the appointment of Julie Slama, a young professional and fifth generation Nebraskan from Peru, to fill an upcoming vacancy in Legislative District 1.

“Julie will push for property tax relief, help create policy that supports strong families, and work to grow agriculture,” said Governor Ricketts. “She will be a fierce advocate for rural communities and will help bridge the urban-rural divide in the Legislature. I look forward to working with her to help move our state forward and grow more opportunities for the next generation of Nebraskans.”

“It is such an honor to serve and represent Southeast Nebraska in the Legislature,” said Slama. “I look forward to working to cut property taxes, protecting our pro-life values, and creating more opportunities for our farm families. I will always be a listening ear and vocal advocate for the communities across the five county area.”

Good 1st semester for Pawnee City Schools

By Brian Rottinghaus
PC Superintendent

In its first semester of the school year, the Pawnee City Public School system has accomplished many things and has much to be proud of. The students, staff, administration and school board continue to strive to keep their focus on improvement. That involves an ongoing assessment of 1) Did we get better? 2) Did we do our best? and 3) What can we do to continue to improve? To best achieve these goals, we feel it is important to provide special acknowledgement of success for both students and staff.

County Road Department completes 5 projects in 2018

It was a good year for the Pawnee County Road Department overall.

Superintendent Chris Rauner said they got several projects started and plan more this year.

They completed five CMP sites. CMP stands for corrugated metal pipes and they replace small-sized bridges. They were able to open a closed bridge Northeast of Burchard Lake. That road had been closed for a couple years and was limiting access to farm ground.

St.Anthony's more than half way in raising funds to repair its bells

The three bells in the east church tower of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church are in need of repair.

There is now a fundraising drive by the church to raise the $40,000 needed to make the repairs.

The bells were installed when the current church was built in 1926. The bells were mechanized in 1951 and since then have rung for a variety of uses: Angelus, Sunday Mass, First Communions, Confirmations, Weddings, First Masses, and tolled for funerals.

S.H.A.R.E. doing good

Safe Haven Animal Rescue Effort (S.H.A.R.E.) of Pawnee City, NE has saved many lives since establishing the non-profit organization in February of 2016. From bearded dragons, to birds, dogs and cats we have saved them all! We have received outstanding reports from the United States Department of Agriculture every year for the last three years. So far, we have rescued 27 dogs, six cats, one bearded dragon, and four birds.

I would like to take a moment to recognize and thank our volunteer board members: Donna Henson, President; Barb Jackson, Vice President; Nita Maddocks, Secretary and Treasurer; and Katie Schlund, Media Manager. Without their efforts, none of this would be possible and there would be even more animals without a forever home! Some volunteers that help with our fundraisers that deserve big thanks are: Jan Derby, Yvonne Williams, Jeff Osborne and many more!

Out with 2018,ready for 2019!Happy New Year!

“Receiving the Pawnee Republican is like getting a letter from home,” remarked a subscriber years ago. The newspaper recently passed its 150th year in publication. We are taking time to reflect on this accomplishment. It is the oldest continuously published weekly in Nebraska and the oldest continuously run business in Pawnee County.

Ron and Bev Puhalla bought the Republican on Nov. 1 in 1990 and the Tecumseh Chieftain on July 1 of 2005. At retirement age, they sold the Chieftain last year and are looking for someone to take over ownerhip of the Republican. They hope to keep the ownership local.

The Puhallas still remain very active in the running of the Republican, however, and show little signs of slowing down. Since reaching retirement age they are looking forward to a time when they can kick back and say “job well done.”

An Amish School Christmas

Last Saturday, students at the last one-room country school in the county held their annual Christmas program. It is the Taylor Branch country school, an Amish school that is only a couple of miles southwest of Table Rock as the crow flies. The school about doubled in size this year because the second Amish school closed. There are about 35 students in Grades 1 to 8. Many of the students come to school on horseback or three to a carriage drawn by tiny ponies.
