Until this week the Falrbury paper was operating a six-unit Harris press and printing papers for a number of other commu- nities including Deshler, Belleville and Washington. Last week apparently was the one for newspapers to be printed in Fairbury. The Superior Express is one of only 11 weekly newspapers in Ne- braska to maintain a pressroom. There are also 11 dally newspapers in Ne- braska still operating a press. Effective this week, the Washington County News is among 30 newspapers being printed in Salina. Earlier this year, a Sheldon, Iowa, printing plant offered to assume the responsibility for print- inN The Express. The large plants prom- ise more color opportunities and better reproduction in exchange for higher prices and less timely content.

Students were from Carleton, Davenport, Guide Rock, Superior, Nelson and Webber. Volunteer instructors were Jeff and Lord Hutchinson, Jon Myers and Bob Trapp. The students were required to attend 10 hours of classroom instruc- tion in which they covered seven chap- ters dealing with such topics as hunter ethics, showing responsibility for the land and wildlife, and preparing for a hunt. The Nebraska Game & Parks Commission provided safety videos for the students to watch. Other topics included identifying different wildlife species, as well as learning the different habitats that each species needs to survive. Each student had to demonstrate how to properly cross fences while hunting alone and with partners, as well as know how to safely load and unload their firearms. Those students receiving their hunter safety badges and certificate of completion were Melissa Aksamit, Joshua Davison, Jaret Eitzmann, Gavin Ekstein, Tanner Ekstein, Mikynzie Hansen, Noah Hoard, Alexiz Holtzen, Jeffery Hunt, Samuel Hunt, Jacob Meyer, Kiersten Morgan, Ezra Morris, Trev Mueller, Owen Perrie, Makinna Peterson, Gage Rempe, Kahne Rempe, Tagnn Rothchild, Blake Schardt, Seth Schnakenberg, Dillon Simpson, Mor- gan Theis, Tanner Theis and Preston Wulf. Others interested in taking a similar course or would like to become a volunteer instructor are asked to con- tact Lord Hutchinson or Bob Trapp. Skills gap limiting American employers A skills gap is being created in the United States as older workers opt for retirement and according to manufac- turing executive Val Zanchuk "the shortage of skilled labor is so severe that it's actually affecting the ability of companies to grow." The Boston Globe cited a report by the Manufacturing Institute and the Deloitte consulting firm showing the issue is real and that "over the next decade, 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will have to be filled and that the skills gap means that 2 million of those jobs will go unfilled."

This is a question familiar to many elementary teachers who have challenged their students to think about and explore large numbers. Whether describing the vastness of the stars or the amount of the United States debt, the need to use large numbers is often inevitable. But these numbers are often so large it is difficult to comprehend their meaning. Much has been written about the importance of having children explore large numbers, think about large amounts of something, estimate large quantities of objects and be able to gain a sense of how much is "a lot." Explo- rations with these goals in mind often invite students to use a familiar context or an everyday object to think about how much a million actually is. The Superior sixth grade class is collecting one million pop tabs so that all the elementary students can see just how much One million is. The teachers are hoping the students will always associate this number with the boxes full of pop tabs that will be displayed in the commons area and thus develop a better understanding of large numbers. But the school needs help. The stu- dents currently have 750,000 but need people to help save tabs to reach the goal. Pop tabs may be brought to the elementary office or send them to school with any student. Vestey Senior Meals Program Aug. 15 to Aug. 19 Monday: Baked fish, rice pilaf, peas, cucumbers, plums.
