Finally Harvest Time

October 23, 2009 by lmorgan · Comments Off 


The clouds finally went away and the sun came out over the weekend to allow the fields to dry so area farmers could get into the fields to continue the fall harvest. Temperatures rose into the 60s Monday as everyone who was able was in the fields. It was a family operation in this corn field as Ben Meis operated the combine and his mother, Jodine Meis, kept up in the grain cart. There were long lines at the local elevator Monday evening as grain trucks were waiting to unload one more time before heading home at the end of the day. E-R photo

Tips for a Safe Halloween

October 22, 2009 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

The Antelope County Red Cross offers the following safety tips for the approaching Halloween celebration.

They are:

• Walk, slither and sneak on sidewalks, not in the street.

• Look both ways before crossing the street to check for cars, trucks and low-flying brooms.

• Cross the street only at corners.

• Don’t hide or cross the street between parked cars.

• Wear light-colored or reflective-type clothing so you are more visible. (Remember to put reflective tape on bikes, skateboards, and brooms, too!)

• Plan your route and share it with your family. If possible, have an adult go with you.

• Carry a flashlight to light your way.

• Keep away from open fires and candles. (Costumes can be extremely flammable).

• Visit homes that have the porch light on.

• Accept your treats at the door and never go into a stranger’s house.

• Use face paint rather than masks or things that will cover your eyes.

• Be cautious of animals and strangers.

• Have a grown-up inspect your treats before eating. Don’t eat candy if the package is already opened. 

Remember, small, hard pieces of candy are a choking hazard for young children.

For more information, contact the Antelope County Red Cross, 105 E. 2nd, Neligh, Ne. 68756.

Cedar Rapids Tigers Spoil Homecoming for Elgin Eagles

October 22, 2009 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

ELGIN — More often than not, size matters in high school football. Cedar Rapids used their size advantage to post a 66 to 30 victory over the Elgin Eagles Friday night.

The Tigers scored 46 points in the first half as they used their size advantage to power their way to the endzone.

That may have been the ultimate outcome. But, on Homecoming Night, the Eagles put a charge into their fans on the game’s first play from scrimmage. 

Lining up on their 16-yard line, freshman quarterback Nick Heithoff dropped back and threw the ball deep, into the hands of senior Tyler Johnson who got behind the Tigers’ defense and scampered 64 yards for the game’s first touchdown.
