Earth Day was used to clean up Pawnee City

 

When they started really thinking and organizing who would do what for Earth Day, Christina Hilger, the Pawnee City High School art teacher, said her immediate thought was how great it would be to do a mural. Mary Moser originally asked her if she could paint the bathroom at the south park, and she thought she meant that she wanted us to paint the inside, but instead Hilger responded "can we paint a mural on it?" She awesomely contacted the city to make sure it would work. “I was really proud of the work of all the kids who helped with the mural; James Iverson,

Alanna Ray, Nikki Owens, Jordan Porter, Cameron Kalin, Tyler Packett, Christina Young, Macey Brown, Rachael Ray, Tristen Bradbury, Olivia Gottula and Reyana Tegtmeier,” Hilger said. Pictured from left, are Alanna Ray, James Iverson, Christina Hilger, Tristen Bradbury, and Reyana Tegtmeier.

Preview of Pawnee County Treasurer Race-May 15 primary

Cindy Johnson

Why are you running for County Treasurer?

My name is Cindy Johnson and I am running for Pawnee County Treasurer. I am running for office for two main reasons. First and foremost I have worked as the Deputy County Treasurer for twenty years, twenty one in May of 2018. So not only am I qualified with an understanding of the office and all it entails but I am ready and excited to become your new County Treasurer. A new County Treasurer’s training is a one day seminar but because of my years of training I will be able to facilitate a smooth transition from Cheryl Dahlgren to then myself when elected. I feel as if I took the right steps to become your County Treasurer, I have worked hard and learned the state and federal systems.

Local grain producer sees tariffs as threat to prices

By Ray Kappel

Grain producer Don Bloss of Pawnee City said that the tariffs proposed by President Trump are the wrong way to go about stabilizing a trade imbalance.

President Trump has slapped tariffs on incoming products from China like solar panels and washing machines. The Chinese have retaliated by promising to put tariffs on U.S. exports. Already they have imposed a 178.6 percent hike on sorghum for instance. Bloss is one of the few farmers who raise sorghum in this area.

City Council sets up 3 paving districts

By Ray Kappel

Pawnee City City Council set up three paving districts at its meeting Monday night.

This is a requirement of USDA before that organization can loan money for a street project. It is really just a formality.

Bids are out on the project and we will have to wait for those to come in before it is known just how much the project will cost. Bids are due around the first of May.

Carl Linnerson retires from HTRS after coaching speech, mock trial

By Ray Kappel

Carl Linnerson is retiring from HTRS after 32 years of teaching. He will retire at the end of the school year.

Linnerson is kind of a famous person in this area because his Speech teams and Mock Trial teams have been very competitive against the state’s best.

Linnerson, originally from Genoa, Nebraska, became interested in history as a kid. He used to watch James Burk and his “Connections” show. Burk tried to show that the things of today are connected to the things of the past.

Nebraska Legislature fails to act on property tax reform

By Ray Kappel

“It’s a sad thing they can’t get anything done,” Dennis Schuster said on his return from the legislative battles over property tax reform.

He attended the legislative sessions Thursday and Friday where two bills we talked about in a previous issue of the Republican were passed over.

The speaker of the legislature has three hours to work with a bill and in that time calls a bill up for a vote if it has a chance of passing. Gov. Ricketts has been backing LB 947 which seeks to give a property tax credit on your income tax. That bill called for $50 million to come out of the Reserve Fund to fund it.
