The house at 1138 G Street is down. Pawnee City City Council condemned the property after declaring it a nuisance property. After a long process, the city workers have been tearing it down and finally have the entire house dismantled. The shed, which was part of the deal, still has to be torn down. City workers have been loading scrap into a dumpster and are about on their third one. There will be several more loads of dumpsters before the crew is done. Neighbors complained about the house and even came to the City Council meetings to complain. The owner of the property, Jeff Gaston, appeared at one meeting to defend his property and to ask for more time.

Christ is Risen Indeed

Pastor Duane Westing When I lived in South Dakota, I wanted to make the growing season longer so I would make a hotbed to plant my seeds in. To prepare a hotbed I dug out about two foot of soil, then put in a foot of horse manure and covered this with good enriched top soil. I then laid rail road ties around it with windows one top. When the sun came out the soil inside would warm up quickly, as well as the horse manure underneath. Then during the cold nights the horse manure would keep the hotbed warm. During the day the environment inside was nice and toasty, and at night, warm and moist, a perfect environment for seeds to germinate quickly and grow fast. This would happen so fast that some seeds would sprout and appear in just three days

Hannah Davis state champ in speech

By Ray Kappel
Pawnee City has produced another state champion. Senior Hannah Davis won the Serious Prose division in Class C2 at the state speech contest in Kearney Friday and the  team turned in their best performance of the season, their coach Laura Bloss said. “You can’t ask for more than that, I’m very proud of them – not only their finishes, but also just their behavior, sportsmanship, and representation of PC,” Bloss said. “I’m not sure how to describe my reaction,” Davis said. “Of course I was really excited. I was kind of relieved becauseI’ve been working so hard these last four  years and it finally paid off. As soon as they  announced second place I just broke into tears. Not just because I was happy, but I had dedicated all of my performance that day to my cousin who had passed away just two days earlier. He was my motivation to win.” .
