UNK teletherapy reaches out to rural Nebraska

Sitting at her computer, a little girl will learn how to say her Ls. Using his computer, a stroke sufferer will work to regain language capabilities.

The University of Nebraska at Kearney RiteCare Clinic is reaching rural children and adults in need of speech and language therapy.

Our goal with this program is to reach individuals in rural areas who would not otherwise be able to receive therapy, whether thats because of their location or funding or lack of insurance, said Laura Moody, speech and language pathology lecturer and RiteCare Clinic supervisor.

The Department of Communication Disorders partners with Scottish Rite of Nebraska to operate the RiteCare Clinic in the College of Education with capabilities of providing teletherapy to individuals across Nebraska.

Bowls for Backpacks Fundraiser at First Home Game

The fifth annual Bowls for Backpacks will take place this Saturday, Dec. 7 at the Fairbury High School commons area.

This is the only actual fundraiser for the Backpack program. This year the program supplies 55 backpacks to eligible children and families each Friday. Enough food is packed to supply three to four meals for over the weekend.

Fairbury community has responded so well, Jeremy Christiansen, Director of Student Services, said. We have people, organizations and churches who routinely will plan to donate each year and that means so much to our program.

Christiansen went on to explain that he has talked to other programs in the area that have been in existence as long as Fairbury and they continue to struggle each year. With the growing number of families that continue to qualify Christiansen feels very lucky to be in as generous community as Fairbury.

Community Churches Pull Through for Food Pantry

Photo caption: This Photo Can Be Purchased at FairburyJournalNews.comPhoto by Jim Headley/Fairbury Journal-News These shelves a month ago were almost bare, a person could easily see the walls behind the food. But with the effort of 13 churches and the kind hearts of many more people in Fairbury BVCA no longer has that problem. It feels so good to come in here and look around, Bailey said.

There were 13 local churches who participated in an annual food challenge and together they brought in 4,841 pounds to the Blue Valley Community Action (BVCA) Food Pantry.

During the month of November local churches challenged each other to a fun competition to see who could donate the most to the local food pantry. In the long run it wasnt who won because the real winner is the food pantry and people who they help.

Lincoln Did Not End Slavery Will you grow a DecemBEARD?

Photo caption: Project organizers Abby Hasselbring and Nathan Glaesemann display the DecemBeard buttons and mascot.

Its December again.

For some of you that means a season of gift giving and receiving.

For an estimated four million people around the world it means another day of suffering.

These sufferers are the victims of human trafficking.

Of those four million upwards of one million are believed to be children.

Not just any children, but a staggering 17,500 plus are victims in our own country.

No country, state or city is immune to this horrific injustice.

Ive been in the Fairbury area since birth and have owned Therapeutic Touch Massage & Body Therapysince 2007.

Being in a small town I wasnt even aware people were still being bought and sold.

I thought slavery died when President Lincoln ended it years ago.
