Americans eat about 125 pounds of potatoes a year. about half from fresh potatoes and halfin processed foods._., Guide Rock By Sandy Larkey What a rude shock to wake up to a white world! I suppose, since summer dragged on into early winter last year, we could have expected winter to drag on into spring this year. But still... Lots of happenings in Guide Rock in March. Or at least there should have been, and will be, if the weather coop- erates. You remember the Hartman Boys Birthday Bash got cancelled be- cause of the blizzard. And it seems like it's snowed every couple of days since then. Last Tuesday, snowed like crazy in the morning, even though nothing stuck to the ground -- and then it rained on me both going and coming to my quilt guild meeting that evening. Well, they do say, "If you don't like the weather in Nebraska, wait half an hour." The Guide Rock American Legion Auxiliary held their annual St. Paddy' s Day dinner Sunday -- on March 17, naturally. Anita Simpson, Judy Schiermeyer and Jan Hartman kept busy dishing up corned beef, a big wedge of cabbage, spoonfuls of Irish potatoes and vegetables to about 30 people; Ramona Wulf manned the des- sert table, keeping it well stocked with a variety of desserts, and Arlene Ander- son was in charge of the "greeting" table and sold tickets for a cookie sheet giveaway. Everyone in attendance went away well stuffed. The desserts were especially appealing, however, defi- nitely not diet. Wanda Longer said Richard had to use three cups of coffee to help get down the dessert he se- lected. I brought home meals for Dave and me to warm up later, since we had just finished breakfast with my brother, Lucky, from Cowles. I had a cheese- cake dessert with mint, chocolate and broken bits of Andes Mints. Dave went for the basically green Jell-0 dessert. The Pa Hur Days planning commit- tee met Thursday for their second ses- sion. There were a few items discussed and decided on, including a date change. I had reported previously it had been set for Sept. 21 -22; it has been changed to Aug, 17-18 to avoid a conflict with county and state fair, school events, harvest, and most im- portantly, Husker football. A design was selected for commemorative T- shirts and colors were picked. A table with forms for preordering in your size andcolor will be set up at the firemen' s barbeque. Speaking of, don't forget that, folks! It was also decided to hold a softball tournament June 8-9 as a fund raising event. Concessions at the tournament and at an upcoming horse show are planned. Shortly after that, the meet- ing "degenerated" into war stories about raising children, etc. I was em- phatically told not to print any of that, but hey, everybody was warned, when I first obtained my reporter's hat with '-'hepre'ss card-'i{rt,' if you 'saw me wearing that hat and had something you didn't want published, keep your mouth shut. So they threatened to take my hat away -- or at least make me check it at the door from now on. The Guide Rock Fire Department was called tO an equipment fire at the Guide Rock Ranch, managed by Steve and Barb Snell, southeast of Guide Rock. Steve was using his bale-han- dler with a harrow behind it to drag out some of the ruts in his equipment road when he smelled-- and saw-- smoke. He jumped off to get a bucket of water, but said, "By the time I got back, a bucketful wasn't going to do the trick." So they called the fire department. Four trucks responded; I got there after the second truck had arrived, and by that time, the fire was nearly out. When the third and fourth trucks showed up, Barb said, "Oh, my (gosh), Steve said to tell them they just needed one truck." Steve asked me if this meant he'd get his name in the paper; I offered him a chance to give me a false name, but he declined. No one injured, no damage except to the bale-handler. And the cows kept right on munching! They had just been fed, and were going to fill their bellies despite the "raging fire" 10 feet from the feed bunks. Eight people attended last Wednesday's coffee hour at the senior center. Cookies and cake were on the menu. along with coffee and conversa- tion. I showed up late, on our way back from running errands in Hastings, and left early, tired from all the running around, so I don't know if any maior problems of the world were solved over the coffee cups. Caroldene had photos of her newest great-grandbaby, and an afghan to show off. Don't forget, the fireman' s barbeque is coming up on Saturaday, along with the Easter egg hunt in the park in the morning. If you feel you can only make one, be sure it's the barbeque. This is a major source of income for the guys to upgrade or buy new equipment, and as you read above, the guys do good work for people in this area. I'll plash the barbeque any chance I get. There will also be a silent auction again this year. So, come with money! I think that's all for this time around, folks. This is, frustratingly, my second attempt at a column this morning; a previous draft is lost somewhere in cyberspace; I clicked on "send" and it went winging away I know not where. If anybody has anything to report that I missed in this draft, let me know what it was and we'll try for next week's column. As always, a box at the post office, one at the senior center, email, phone me at 257- 2037, snail mail at P. O. Box 93. Pigs can't sweat.

Mr. and Mrs. Doug Porter and Ashley were lastTues- day evening visitors of Don and Peggy.

Mr. and Mrs. Burt Schroer visited Don and Peggy Cassell Friday evening. Jacob Jacobitz was a Monday morn- ing guest of Ivalee Jacobitz. Josh Jacobitz was an evening visitor. Mrs. John Jensen was alast Tuesday after- noon coffee guest of Ivalee. Jaycee Jacobitz visited late afternoon. Ivalee Jacobitz accompanied Mrs. John Jensen to Davenport Friday on business.

Memories with Bonnie The following was taken from the May 21, 1970 edition of "Bonnie's Back Talk" found in the Nelson Ga- zette. One of the things I like about our little town is that it is just full of nuts. There are the golfing nuts, pool hall nuts, archery nuts, hunting fishing and camping nuts, bowling nuts, card playing nuts plus an odd assortment of nuts like myself who like to paint, write and sit and gab. But now there are the river nuts. They officially call themselves the Royal Navy of Nelson, although it sounded l i ke a Fearless Flotilla of Fools to me. On a recent Sunday afternoon this fleet, consisting of two canoes, I one flat bottom boat and an ordinary fishing boat, plus plenty of oars and elbow grease maneuvered their way down the Little Blue River, startingat the Highway 14 bridge 10 milesnorth of Nelson, and completing their cruise at a bridge west of Angus near the Sterk! farm. It took from 4:30 8:30 p.m. Now let me tell you who these kids were: Garth Melvin, the owner of Melvin Garage, and his wife; Pharm, a- cist Jim Young, his wife and 10-year- old son, Mark; Bill Schnitker, man- ager of the Superior Deshler Propane plant and his 10-year-old son, Mark, and Bob Hunter, the proprietor of the Deluxe Body Shop, and Mike 12ulbertson, the 12-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Tufty Culbertson. Surprisingly, there was only one upset on this trip. Bill Schnitker while trying to maneuver underneath a fallen tree, upset his canoe, dumping him- self, Mark and their lunch into the water. Bill was a little concerned for his son, whom he finally spotted swim- ming furiously downstream trying to catch up with the oars. Even the lunch was saved, it being in a floating wateP proof container. Frankly, it sounded like loads of fun to me, and ifl can find anyone with a boat wide enough to hold me, I'm hitching my way on the next cruise, which I understand is going to be down the Republican River. I figure there's always room for one more nut. One more note on this. I sort of made fun of this bunch of water-warts, but I personally think it is marvelous that people get out and do things like this instead of sitting arotmd in front df the boob tube, or on their rumps guz- zling coffee or beer complaining how there isn't anything to do around Nelson. I hope they keep it up, and even think of new things to do, If more parents would take their children, or even other people's children out with them on jaunts such as these, there wouldn't be so many unsettled, pro- testing youngsters as we have around the country today. Youngsters don't need your dollar bill, they need a dollar's worth of your time. You actu- ally have such a few short years with your children, compared with the years of being alone, that you shouldn't even consider what you do with or for them as a sacrifice - it's a good investment. i Passport $5 Photos I Superior Express. I 148 E. 3rd, Superior, Neb. * 402-879-3291 It's still tough out there. Thousands of Nebraskans have lost their jobs or are struggling in jobs without health insurance and don't have access to affordable health care. Expanding Medicaid would give hard-working families the security of knowing they can get the care they need. It would also give Nebraskans access to critical preventative and more affordable care. And care. That means fewer emergency room visits if helping hard-working people get the care they need wasn't enough of a reason, a recent poll revealed that a majority of ,, Nebraskans support Medicaid expansion. Call 1-800-361-2243 and tell your legislator: Don't turn your back on hard-working Nebraskans. Support Medicaid expansion.
