“Perhaps you sent a lovely card, or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a funeral spray, if so we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say; perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you so much whatever the part. “

By the family of Phillip Pelster

Many Thanks to everyone in the Elgin area and beyond who supported our Calendar Lottery fund raiser.  We wish you “Good Luck”, and remember, watch your mailboxes each day of 2010! Thanks for your generosity,

“Friends of St. Boniface”



Wolfpack Era in High School Sports Begins Thursday

December 2, 2009 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

What has long been anticipated is about to take place. Beginning Thursday night, athletes from Pope John Central Catholic and Elgin High Schools will compete together on the same athletic teams.

School colors of orange and black (Elgin High) and blue and white (Pope John) won’t soon be worn again in sporting events. Instead, they have been replaced with the Wolfpack colors of red, black and silver. Each school is well represented on the wrestling team as well as boys and girls basketball teams. The boys basketball team will be coached by Pope John’s Tory Gilson. He will be assisted by EHS principal Jimmy Feeney III.

The girls basketball team will be led by Randy Eisenhauer from Elgin High School. Joining him on the bench will be assistant coach Brad Cornell of Pope John. Both the boys and girls teams will open the season on the road at Verdigre Friday night.

The wrestling team will be under the guidance of long-time EHS wrestling coach Doug Jones. Mike Zegers, last year’s head coach at Pope John, is just one of the assistant coaches on the team. The wrestling team will open the season Thursday at a double dual at Randolph. A preview of the sports teams begins on page seven.

Broad Appeal to Perform Sunday in Albion

December 2, 2009 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

The Albion Area Arts Council will present a concert by the vocal trio Broad Appeal on Sunday, December 6th at 2 p.m. at the Zion Lutheran Church in Albion.

The three women who comprise Broad Appeal, each an accomplished performer and vocal instructor, capture the essence of the 1935-1959 musical era through the glorious melodies of ‘Your Hit Parade,’ the popular show that brought the week’s top songs to eager audiences gathered around their radios and televisions. Through an intermix of a cappella arrangements and lively recorded band accompaniments Broad Appeal brings the hits — and the stories behind them — to life. 

From the obscure ‘Little Shoemaker’ to the wildly popular ‘Sincerely,’ Broad Appeal charms diverse audiences with their rich harmonies and seamless blend.

Admission is $12.50 for adults and $5 for children with Arts Council members admitted free-of-charge. Anyone having questions may contact Paul or Lori Hosford at 402-395-6727 or at www.arts2008@frontiernet.net.

The Nebraska Arts Council, a state agency, supports this program through a matching grant funded by the Nebraska Legislature, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.

Taking Control of Diabetes

December 2, 2009 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

In November, Antelope Memorial Hospital sponsored “Taking Control of Diabetes” presented by Tim Fisher, of Missouri and a member of the A1C Champion Program. In addition, Gayle Carlson, AMH Lifeline Coordinator, and Barb Tichota, AMH Wellness Director, gave tips for preventing falls and for strength building, respectively. Over 60 area residents from surrounding communities attended the free presentations. The attendees enjoyed free snacks, door prizes and a mini-health fair with representatives from Hilltop Drugs, the Willows, Neligh Eye Clinic, Creekwood Chiropractic and the AMH Lifeline, Wellness and Diabetes Education Programs. Money for food expenses was donated by the Neligh Lion Club. 

Mr. Fisher shared his personal experiences and challenges of having diabetes. He offered tips for maintaining a relatively normal lifestyle while enjoying good health. He stressed the importance of taking care of oneself and closely monitoring one’s blood glucose levels throughout the day.
