Dr. Dokken writes about when he was in Cornerstone Building

By Dr. Steve Dokken

I occupied the building from 1967 - 2009. It was always a challenge to maintain it, but I always felt that it occupied a VERY important corner of the historic Pawnee City downtown and it pleases me greatly that the community has shown the wisdom and commitment to restore it.

If memory serves, the building was constructed in 1881 and was occupied by Farmers State Bank and for several years the upstairs housed law offices. Pinky and I lived upstairs for 4 years after remodeling the former law offices into an apartment.

SENCA ends meals program

The SENCA Pawnee County meal program has been struggling financially on and off for the past several years and last year ended with a deficit of just over $10,000. This has been due to multiple factors which include declining number of diners eating at the Center, increased food costs, and increased overhead costs. Due to these circumstances, the SENCA meal program will close effective January 3, 2020.

SENCA’s management is exploring a possible agreement with an area provider to continue the meals on wheels option. The public will be made aware as soon as an agreement is reached and will hopefully see little to no interruption in meal service for those taking meals on wheels.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night

This time of year, we see a lot of decorations that have nothing to do with the true meaning of Christmas. We see Santa Claus, reindeer and elves. There are plenty of gingerbread houses, snowmen and bells. Tinsel, wrapping paper, ribbons and bows show up in every store window. The true meaning of Christmas sometimes gets lost.

Occasionally you will see a sign that says Merry Xmas. Sometimes people become offended, saying they are taking the Christ out of Christmas. I want to go on record as saying I don’t believe that is so. The X is actually the Chi in the Greek alphabet. It is the first letter in the Greek word for Christ (ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ). Sometimes in churches the Chi is superimposed over the second letter which looks to us like a capital P. It is the Greek letter Rho. The Chi Rho is one of the earliest symbols for Christ.
