Steele City Village Life

For well over one hundred years the Steele City community has observed Decoration Day and Memorial Day. After the Civil War the Union the local soldier veterans organized the E. C. Rice Post of the Grand Army of the Republic. They were in charge of the observance until after World War One.

At that time the local veterans organized the American Legion. As time went on and there were fewer and fewer GAR members, the American Legion took charge of the yearly observance at the Steele City Cemetery.

The Steele City Cemetery

It lies upon the hillside fair.

Far out from the village street.

Swept by the sun, wind and rain.

It is there our loved ones sleep.

Today in loving memory we left flowers.

Letters To The Editor

To Whom

It May Concern

Editor:

He is still waiting.

Waiting for his master to return and rescue him from hunger, thirst and dark lonely nights.

He thought it was playtime when you stopped just north of the Blue River bridge on 564th Avenue. Maybe you threw a stick for him to fetch? He was so happy to go get it for you, only to see you drive away without him.

This medium size brown dog with a cropped tail and floppy ears a Heinz 57 as folks call him.

He waits.

It has been several days now. He is too timid and scared to come to a stranger with a hand out.

He waits.

He waits for the love of his life, his master, that doesn't love him anymore, to come and rescue him and take him home.

Leave It To Laura

This past weekend was all about change. Change in the weather, change in the yard and change in some hair. Wait, let me explain the hair.

This past winter I had no choice but to shave one of my cats. We had an overwhelming flea problem and I was not able to eradicate them no matter what I did. So I decided to shave Fatty Cat.

Fatty Cat is an older cat, I would guess any where from 10-15 years old. When you shave a cat with that many years on him, he kind of looks like an 90 year old man with his shirt off. His skin is kind of saggy and wrinkled and he is sort of boney.

Legislative Week in Review, May 2-5 By Krista Vogel, Nebraska News Service

Senators advanced a bill May 5 to create the offense of assault with a bodily fluid against a public safety officer. Legislative Bill 226, introduced by Sen. Mike Gloor of Grand Island, would penalize any person who "knowingly and intentionally" hits an officer with a bodily fluid - including blood, saliva, urine, feces, seminal fluid, mucus and vomit. The offense would be a Class I misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine. In addition, any violator knowingly infected with hepatitis B or C, HIV or AIDS would be guilty of a Class 3A felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. An adopted amendment by Sen. Galen Hadley of Kearney added protection for employees of the Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Centers in Geneva and Kearney.
