  • Jeffs Earn Medals At State
    Tuesday, May 22, 2018 6:03 PM
    Each one of Fairbury’s three state placers had their own taste of adversity at the state track meet on Friday in Omaha.
    And they each overcame their own challenges to leave Omaha Burke Stadium with a medal around their necks.
    The Jeffs lone returning state placer, Jessa Eden, returned to the discus ring with a seventh place medal already on her resume from a year ago. The fact didn’t show early on, as the junior scratched her first two throws in prelims. Eden’s true colors then shined bright, securing a spot in the finals on her final attempt.

    Tuesday, May 22, 2018 5:59 PM
    Losing was a foreign feeling to Tri County’s Creighton Niemeyer all season long.
    He never lost a race in the mile throughout his 2018 track campaign entering the state meet’s 1,600-meter race on Saturday and he made sure that wasn’t about to change.
    The two-time returning state medalist in the event took off from the double waterfall start and gained the lead by the time all runners past the first curve of the race.

    You are most likely reading this on a Wednesday or a Thursday. However, I wrote it on a Tuesday, and because this Tuesday was Primary Tuesday, I wrote it wearing one of those little “I Voted Today” stickers on my shirt. Voting is, of course, a civic duty, and most voters wear those stickers proudly.

    We all know the old saying, where there is smoke, there is fire.
    There has been some hints of smoke in the air over the local police department merging with the sheriff’s department. This is nothing new and has been a discussion point for several years, most recently 2012.

    There are certain rules about writing one must obey. I’m not talking I before E except after C and all that jazz. When you write the kind of stuff I write, there are certain subjects you simply must address. Rule number one: if you know someone who ever worked in a circus or a carnival, you MUST write about that person.
