New Iron Horse boat dock vandalized

By Ray Kappel

The new $15,000 boat dock at Iron Horse Recreation Area was vandalized two weeks ago. It has since been repaired and was back in operation last weekend.

About $1,520.70 worth of damage was done to the dock.

Nemaha Natural Resources District spokesman Scott Nelson said it appears someone took a sledge hammer to break the concrete decking tiles.

The damage was done on a weekend and not discovered until the following Wednesday by NRD staff.

For liability purposes the dock was closed for repairs.

New Blazin' Bull owners settling in

By Ray Kappel

Things couldn’t have gone better for Josh and Trisha Hemmer, the new owners of the Blazin’ Bull.

They took over April 10 from previous owners Mitch and Kenzie Turnbull. Trisha said the community has been awesome in accepting them and the Turnbulls have been very helpful in the transition. Mitch is coming in Friday, for instance, to help out while the Hemmer’s daughter has her dance recital.

The new place is doing great business under the new owners, like it had under the Turnbulls. The Hemmers couldn’t be happier about the way things have gone.

“We couldn’t have asked for better people to buy it from than Mitch and Kenzie. They have helped us figure out a lot that we didn’t know,” Trisha said. “And the community has been very supportive of us.”

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.
