That must have been some bookcase because it turned into a successful career in architecture. The 1978 graduate of Pawnee City High School received recently the medal for Alumni Master at the College of Architecture at UNL.

Beans all in, corn harvest at 98%

The corn harvest is 98 percent done and the beans are all in, according to Jeff Wehrbein, manager of the Southeast Cooperative at Burchard. Wehrbein said the corn yield has been between 120 and 150 bushels an acre with it hitting 160-170 in isolated spots. That's dry land results. The Burchard facility doesn't handle the irrigated crop harvest. That grain is taken further west. Bean harvest was 30 to 60 bushel, Wehrbein said, with isolated patches
hitting 70 bushels.
