Web site updated, PDFs still available

We’ve been working on a new web site, aimed at easier updating to help push more content online. Wednesday evening, we quietly launched it.

First, and foremost, your PDFs are still here. The link with this week’s date at the top of the page (“August 1, 2013 PDF Edition”) will give you one-click access to the PDF edition, which is available to subscribers.

The archives are also still available, and will take you to the old site until we can get them moved over. You can search all of the PDFs from our archive pages.

Jiskra key in East win at Shrine Bowl

TOPEKA—The East team snapped a seven-game losing streak in their 22-19 win over the west in the Kansas East-West Shrine Bowl Saturday in Topeka.

Lyndon High School graduate Dakota Jiskra represented the county, making key plays to prevent opposing scores by the West team.

“Dakota started at defensive tackle and played very well,” said LHS Football Coach Rod Stallbaumer. “He had a big tackle for loss on a two-point stop in the third quarter, and had a key sack late in the game when the West was attempting a comeback.”

Rain pushes field installation past deadline

OSAGE CITY—Just as workers were approaching the final days of installing the new field in Jones Park, the skies opened up and ceased progress, with less than half the sod installed.

“The rain has delayed what remained of the sodding until it’s dry enough to get equipment out there,” said USD 420 Superintendent Troy Hutton. “Lights will go up as soon as they can get equipment in there without getting stuck.”
