Named one of the five “must see” groups in America and described by the New York Times as “a vocal kaleidoscope…unique to the human voice,” Tonic Sol-fa has been highlighted in Newsweek magazine, performed with Jay Leno and appeared on NBC’s Today Show. Tonic Sol-fa leads the vocal music world as the nation’s premier a cappella group.

There will be plenty to talk about when members of the Elgin Community Club hold their regular monthly meeting on Monday, Oct. 20.
Due to schedule conflicts, the club did not meet in September.
Monday night’s meeting will be held at The Steel Steed Steakhouse & Saloon and will begin at 7 p.m.
The mobile food pantry, sponsored by various churches in Antelope County, will be dispersing food again on Tuesday, October 21, from 4:30-6:30 p.m., at the American Legion Club in Neligh.
The goal is to provide free food to those whose needs are great and resources are limited without being restricted by income guidelines.
Items include canned goods, fresh fruits and vegetables, pastries, and desserts. Gates open at 5 p.m.
Workers are needed to help unload the truck and set up tables at 2:30 p.m. All other workers are asked to be there by 4 p.m. that day.
“It’s a big game for us.”
Six little words, 16 letters in all. But it has a huge meaning for members of the Wolfpack varsity football team.
After starting out the season with three losses, Elgin Public-Pope John has rebounded with three straight victories and will play for the D1-7 District title Friday night at Elgin Field.
Standing between them and a championship are the Neligh-Oakdale Warriors. The Warriors are riding a four-game winning streak after dropping their first two games of the season.
“I’m pretty sure these kids (the Wolfpack) are going to be ready,” said Eisenhauer, in his second season as head coach of the Wolfpack.
“They’re (Neligh/Oakdale) going to spread us out. They’re quick hitters and everything is kinda like last year. Hopefully, our kids will answer. I think they will.”
The Wolfpack enter Friday night’s game averaging nearly 32 points per game on offense while the defense has given up 27 points per game, but just 12 points per game during their winning streak.
The Warriors are averaging 44 points per game on offense. The Warrior defense has given up an average of 35 points per game.
The schools have played two common opponents. The Wolfpack posted a 30 to 6 victory over North Central. When the Warriors played North Central they previaled in a high scoring affair, 49 to 45.
The other common opponent was Niobrara/Verdigre whom the Wolfpack defeated 48 to 6. The Warriors defeated the Cougars 56 to 14 earlier in the season.
The winner of Friday night’s game will not only win a district title, but will qualify for the Class D-1 State Football Playoffs. The loser will not be eliminated from the playoffs, but would have to qualify as a wild-card entry.
The Wolfpack and Warriors have each posted victories on their home field against each other over the last two season.
Friday night’s game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
They will be asked to stand in front for all to see. The auctioneer will do his cadence, money will exchange hands. It’s a scene that goes on every year about this time and will do so again on Friday night at the conclusion of the Wolfpack/Neligh-Oakdale Warriors football game.
It’s the annual Elgin FFA Labor Auction. The rules are quite simple. To the highest bidder each FFA member will be sold. In exchange for money, members will work for eight hours at the time and place of the buyer’s choosing.

Monies raised from the auction go to support chapter activities and student leadership development throughout the year.

They will be split into a girl group and a boy group. Funds raised from this sale will go directly to help pay for their trip later in the year.
