Girl Hit by Vehicle and Dies

Girl Hit by Vehicle and Dies

This is something everyone dreads to hear.

Sunday evening shortly before 7 p.m. 7-year-old Krista Medina of Fairbury was struck by a motor vehicle and killed at 816 H Street.

She was found lying unresponsive in the lawn of the home and EMT and Paramedics with the Jefferson County Ambulance Service No. 33 transported the child to Jefferson Community Health Center. She later died of her injuries.

Fairbury Police say 69-year-old Joseph Hynek was driving northbound on H Street when Medina apparently walked in front of his car. Police report Hynek was not able to stop and hit Medina.

Hynek was also taking to the hospital but has since been released.

Speed and alcohol are not believed to play a factor in the accident, which is still under investigation.

Because the accident was fatal, Nebraska State Patrol is assisting Fairbury Police with the investigation.

Sound Waves in Music

The sounds of music can be heard coming from the 5th grade classroom at Tri County Elementary, but these 5th graders arent just listening to the music, they are learning about sound waves and how our ear works.

There were many different songs played as the 5th grade students learned about sound waves, frequency, decibels, and wavelengths during a recent Distance Learning Science Lesson with instructor Derek Niss. The 5th grade students were able to see sound waves being produced by a light that was hooked up to a speaker. As the different notes in the song were played, the different wavelengths of the sound were picked up by the light and shown on the board. Students were enthralled to see the many different sound waves displayed on the board. As the experiment progressed, students saw the different wave patterns in low frequency sounds compared to high frequency sounds.
