Lawn refuse should be kept out of the streets

By Ray Kappel News Editor

Don’t blow your grass clippings, leaves or other worthless vegetation into the street, the city asks. If you do you are likely to get a visit from the County Sheriff for littering. There are two ordinances that cover lawn stuff being blown back into the street. You risk getting a ticket if you are caught. That was discussed at the Monday night Pawnee City City Council meeting. Foreman Clint Johnson said that lawn refuse being blown back into the street has always been a problem, but added that the problem seems worse this year.

Pawnee County 4-H Fair getting ready

By Ray Kappel News Editor

The Pawnee County Extension Office is revved up to high gear as the Pawnee County Fair gets closer. The 4-H part of the Fair will be held July 23-28. The Republican asked Extension Educator Karly Black what her thoughts were as we get closer. “Summer is always a busy time in the

Extension Office as we have summer workshops and fair to prepare for. The long hours and hot weather are just a few of the things I do not always enjoy about summer, but county fair is my favorite time of the year. It is place for youth to showcase their hard work, try new things, and gain valuable life skills. The youth-adult partnership and connection to the community is something which transcends just county fair,” she said.
