A combination of stellar shooting by Kenzie Kulm and scoring in transition by Platteview proved too much for the Fairbury Lady Jeffs to overcome in a 77-66 opening round loss last Thursday in the 2014 NSAA State Girls Class C-1 Basketball Championships played at the Devaney Sports Center in Lincoln.

Kulm, a 57 guard for Platteview, went off for five threes en route to scoring a game-high 40 points.

After winning the tip to begin the game, Fairbury scored the first points of the contest on a jump shot by Jordan Johnson.

A three-point field goal by Shelby Pollman bumped the Lady Jeffs lead to 7-2 with 6:16 remaining in the first quarter.

School Board Addresses Outdated Infrastructure

The infrastructure of the Fairbury School District was an important topic of discussion at Mondays Fairbury School Board meeting.

There are several boilers and air handling systems that require replacement or major repair through out the school system.

The Fairbury School Board had contracted with Trane for a performance-based evaluation for facility improvement solutions. The initial free evaluation of the complete school district revealed that due to age there were several needs that required addressing in the near future.

Trane representative Brent Jackson said that in some cases due to the many different maintenance personnel that have done minor repairs on equipment it is difficult to fully evaluate the extent of repair that may be needed.

Trane presented several proposed projects that they felt needed to be addressed.

Thayer Co. Sheriffs Report:

Thayer Co. Sheriffs Report:

March 1: Losing a tire reportedly triggered a wild ride, before a vehicle ultimately landed in a ditch, although fortunately no injuries were reported. A tan 2007 Chevrolet four-door sedan, driven by Michelle L. Koch, of Hastings, was travelling eastbound on Highway 136, less than one mile from County Road 5800; and about two miles west of Hebron. Suddenly, the vehicle dropped a wheel off the south side of the roadway, the driver over-corrected the vehicle, then lost control after striking a state reflector post. The vehicle then continued to spin, and entered a north ditch; going through a fence backwards. No injuries were reported. There was significant damage to the vehicle, estimated at $3,500 but the report states Koch was able to drive away from the scene. Damage to the Nebraska state reflector post and a homeowners fence and posts were estimated at a total of $250.
