Neligh to Host Immunization Clinic

October 22, 2009 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Goldenrod Hills Community Action will hold the Neligh Immunization Clinic on Thursday, November 5th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Abundant Life Christian Center, 1101 L St., Neligh. For an appointment please call (402) 529-3513.

GHCA’s Health Services Program will provide lead screening to children 12 months to 5 years of age at our Immunization Clinics. Children may get lead poisoning from paint of homes built before 1978, tap water, food, pottery, dirt, dust and even from the air we breathe. Elevated blood levels can cause irreversible damage to the brain and nervous system; it can harm the kidneys and digestive system; and because lead reduces the ability for the body to produce red blood cells, it can cause anemia. Children with elevated blood levels of 10 or higher may suffer dulled hearing, stunted growth, reduced eye-hand coordination, behavioral problems and delayed learning skills.

The Immunization Clinic is open to the public, and there are no income guidelines. Each child should be accompanied by the parent or guardian. 

Past immunization records are required. Proxy forms are needed when a parent or legal guardian is unable to accompany the child to clinic. Proxy forms may be obtained by contacting the Wisner office at (402) 529-3513. A suggested donation of $20.00 per child would be appreciated to help defray administrative costs. If a child only receives one immunization, then the suggested donation is $13.50.

Pumpkins to Again Fly at Petersburg

October 22, 2009 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

The weather begins to be a little chilly with cool mornings and some snow recently. The leaves turn their many shades of yellow, orange, and maroon garnering a splendor of spectacular colors. Fall harvest is in progress. The end of October nears, and what does that mean? It‘s time for Petersburg’s Annual Punkin’Chunkin’TM.

For the past five years, Petersburg’s Community Club has sponsored the annual Punkin’ Chunkin’TM. It is held in conjunction with the World Championship Punkin’ Chunkin’TM Association. Punkin’ shooter winners in the local contest are eligible to compete in the national competition.

Machines can shoot, launch, throw or fling a 6-12 lb. pumpkin. Community volunteers or club members drive four wheelers through the corn or soybean fields and measure distance shot by a Global Positioning System (GPS). Longest distance shot in 2008 was 3,071 feet from an air gun. 

There are four divisions: air gun, mechanical, trebuchet and catapult. A $500 award is given for the longest distance. 

Petersburg State Bank puts up $500 for a chance to win during the accuracy contest. There is no entry fee, and safety rules apply. There is a high school division where a trophy is awarded. No explosives are allowed.

Crowds cheer on their favorite teams and approximately 2,000 people attended last year’s event.

The action begins at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 25, one mile east of Petersburg. There is free admission, and many free activities are available for the whole family. A shuttle service is available from the parking lot, so bring your favorite lawn chair and come and enjoy the day. In case of inclement weather, the storm date will be the next Sunday, Nov. 1.
