    Forrest Hershberger, Sidney Sun-Telegraph|May 13, 2020

    The lights are returning to favorite locations in Sidney. Those favorite hangouts offering the coffees, delectable delights, and conversations with wait staff that have been put on hold for weeks are beginning to return. On April 24, Nebraska Gov.

  • Jobs As We Knew Them Are Over

    Dan Carlson, Prairie Ponderings|May 13, 2020

    We are discovering many things as a result of the corona virus and its impact. Among them are that work and jobs centralized in office buildings and business parks are over. Prior to 2020, only about 8 percent of wage and salaried employees in the U.S. worked remotely at least one day a week according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Then the virus hit and so did the landscape of work within our country as millions of Americans employed by thousands of companies were told they had to...

  • What If?

    Forrest Hershberger, View from the Handlebars|May 13, 2020

    Two months ago, give or take a few days or so, “normal” took a left turn in the Panhandle. We were strongly encouraged to stay home unless on an essential errand or duty. The “encouragement” was even stronger if we traveled outside of the Panhandle, at which point we were to take a two-week staycation i.e. self-quarantine. As of May 4, the economic, emotional and social lights are starting to flicker back on. Restaurants and cafes can have a limited number of dine-in customers. Custome...

    Brandee Gillham, The Cowboys Wife|May 13, 2020

    If you have not read Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty” speech in the last week, look it up right now and give it some time. Mr. Henry gave this speech in 1775 to reluctant members of the Second Virginia Convention to develop a military response to British aggression. He was calling out men to rise to action in the face of government oppression. This idea sounds strangely familiar right now. I have been a red-blooded, white, blue-collared American my entire life. It is time to stand up and be bold for our American freedoms. As I quote Mr. Henry...

  • The Beatitudes

    Matthew 5:1-16 5 And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. 2 Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: 3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. 5 Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the [a]earth. 6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. 7 Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy. 8 Blessed are the pure in heart, For t...
