Photo caption: Dylan Nippert

Fairbury businessman David Stenson was charged with four counts of manufacturing and possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine but a written plea agreement was reached Jan. 2 in Jefferson County District Court. Stenson withdrew his not guilty pleas to the four manufacturing charges and pleaded no contest to one count of criminal attempt to manufacturing methamphetamine, a class III felony which is punishable by 1-20 years and/or a $25,000 fine. His house has been condemned as part of this and it will likely take legal action to get his house back, according to his defense attorney Joseph Murray. The State will recommend Stenson be placed on probation at the time of sentencing on March 6.

Public Health Solutions Condemns Darren Cloyds Mobile Home

In January 2013, Darren Cloyd was acquitted on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine.

He thought the case was in the past but last week representatives from Public Heath Solutions, with the assistance of the Fairbury Police Department, condemned Cloyds vacant mobile home, the place that prosecutors believed meth was made.

Right after Cloyd parked a semi-trailer in front of his mobile home on Thursday, authorities arrived to board up the abandoned trailer. Cloyd moved the trailer in place in an attempt to clean out the mobile home.

While the site was condemned by Public Heath, the Fairbury Police were there just to keep the peace.

Meridian Superintendent Finally Responds to Allegations

Russ Gade, Superintendent of the Meridian School District, did not make any response on Dec. 16 when accusations were leveled against him at the Meridian School Board meeting.

A group of district parents and patrons accused Gade of inappropriate language, inappropriate gestures including flipping off a student, using tobacco on school grounds and showering with students.

Gade made no effort to respond to the allegations at the meeting and simply sat silently, even when he was asked if he had anything to say.

In the Meridian Schools January newsletter, Gade finally responded to the allegations by writing:

Fairbury Police Officer Stealing Patrol Cruiser Tops 2013 Stories

The top story in Jefferson County in 2013 was the saga of former Fairbury Police officer Stanly Colby and how he drove off in a Fairbury Police cruiser while on duty and was arrested in Lincoln County.

In the Fairbury Journal-News Sept. 18 edition the headlines and story read:

Police Officer Steals

City Cruiser

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.

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

Colby was believed to have been distraught and heading to the McCook area at the time.
