Fairbury was in a giving mood last Tuesday night versus Thayer Central.

Unfortunately too many errors by the Lady Jeffs proved costly in their three-set home loss to the Lady Titans.

Thayer Central took advantage of Fairburys miscues to post a 25-10, 25-19, 25-14 victory.

Fairbury Lady Jeffs Coach Ryan Evans felt the difference in the match was the number of errors that the team committed.

The team continues to struggle with errors. In the first set we scored 10 points, while we committed 10 errors that gave Thayer Central 10 points, Evans said. In the second set, we earned 17 points, however we continued to have miscues which resulted in us giving them 17 points. In the last set our team scored 14 points, but we gave up 14 points. We have to cut down on our errors.

When it rains it pours.

That summed up the opening quarter for Fairbury in their home opener 46-6 loss to Auburn Friday night.

Fairbury Jeffs coach Derek Garfield felt the team made too many mistakes along with penalties and turnovers which put them in a deep hole they couldnt get out of.

Friday night against Auburn the first quarter kind of unraveled on us. We quite frankly had too many mistakes with penalties and turnovers. It makes it awfully hard on yourself when you keep shooting yourself in the foot, Garfield said. After looking at film, I feel like some of the plays were there if we could have kept the penalties to a minimum. Turnovers really hurt us as well.

Magazine Call Scam

It has come to our attention some local people are receiving phone calls from a Lincoln number saying they have been chosen to receive watches, trips, gift certificates or savings bonds, and when it comes down to it they want your credit card for magazine purchases, so please be mindful if you receive a call like this.

No one is sure if this kind of thing has ever happened before.

Saturday, Sept. 14, Fairbury Police Officer Stanly Colby was arrested in Lincoln County for stealing a police cruiser.

The arrest happened about six miles south of North Platte, at mile marker 68 on U.S. Highway 83 near Lone Star Road. Reports indicate Colby, 40 years old, was wearing his uniform at the time of the arrest.

He was first spotted about 6 p.m. near Lexington and a short time later Colby was seen in North Platte.

Lincoln County Chief Deputy Sheriff Roland Kramer said he was informed at 6:40 p.m. Saturday that the North Platte Police, Lincoln County Sheriffs Deputies and that Nebraska State Patrol troopers were chasing the stolen cop car.

During the chase, Colby apparently avoided spike strips used in a failed attempt to stop the cruiser.

Grandparent/Grandfriends Success at Central School

Grandparents and grandfriends were honored by staff and students at Central School on Monday, September 9. I was very happy with the turnout, said Principal Jeremy Christiansen. We had 350 people registered to come and the turnout was over that number.

Grandparents and Grandfriends are very special to children. The day was organized to recognize not only the importance of our heritage but most importantly the relationship across generations.

The day was split into two sessions in order to be sure to have room for all the attendees.
