More Problems For The Roads Dept.

More roads have been closed since an incident happened on 562 Ave. north of highway 136 between Fairbury and Gladstone. To avoid further accidents, the roads are being worked on to ensure safe driving conditions.
Bryce Huss, an employee for the roads department was working on 562 Ave. attempting to repair the flood damaged road and the motor grader sunk into the road. 
The accident happened at the edge of a bridge where the road had been “undermined” giving way under the weight of the grader. Undermining is when a lower layer of the road is washed away during flooding, but the top layer is left, making the road look safe to drive on.
Bill Hansel, Highway Superintendent for Jefferson County stated, this is a good example of why we close and barricade the roads, it may look safe, but that is not always the case and someone could get seriously injured if they drive on a closed road.

That was the case for the West All-Star volleyball team versus the East in the Southeast Nebraska All-Star Volleyball match played Friday evening at the Truman Center on the campus of SCC-Beatrice.
The East squad started out strong in each set, but had no answer for stellar comebacks by the West.
As a result, the West came out victorious in straight sets over the East, 25-18, 25-21, and 25-19.
In the first set, the East raced out to a 12-7 lead only to have the West string together a 4-0 run to slice the East’s lead to 12-11.
The East bumped its lead to 14-11, before the West tallied three straight points forcing the East to call timeout with the score tied at 14.
A kill by the West’s Fillmore Central’s Tracey Maloley and an ace serve by Meridian’s Blair Hofstetter stretched the West’s lead to 23-18, as the East called timeout.
