AGRI-PLASTICS COMING TO SIDNEY

Agri-Plastics if officially coming to Sidney.

The Ontario, Canada, based plastics manufacturer will join Lukjan Metal Products LLC at One Greewood Road, a $4.5 million investment.

Sidney City Council approved the facility sub-division at its Sept. 26 meeting.

Agri-Plastics will close on its deal with Lukjan at the end of this month, Melissa Norgard, economic development director, said.

“They are going to initially hire around 20 people and hope to start operations late January or February,” Norgard said. “It’s a super-exciting opportunity.”

Agri-Plastics manufactures plastic calf hatches for dairies.

SIDNEY HIGH SINGERS TO SING AT FINALS

Sidney High School’s sextet singing group has been selected to sing the national anthem at the 2017 Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) football championship finals Nov. 21 at University of Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

“They were selected from a group of over 200 candidates and they’ll be performing live,” Jennifer Mead, SHS choir director, said.

The group of six SHS students was chosen for the sextet from a larger group called Heartbreakers, a show choir, and Sidney Singers, which performs the national anthem at SHS events, Mead said.
