  • Isms Original views on life from rural America

    LuAnn Schindler, Publisher|Sep 28, 2023

    Last week's poll question has stirred a craving for pizza. Specifically, Mom's homemade pizza. The crust wasn't fancy. Usually, she whipped up the recipe printed on the Bisquick box and added a few herbs and spices to make it her own. She'd brown seasoned ground beef, mince a yellow onion, chop black olives into rings and dice mushrooms and green peppers. A thin coating of pizza sauce and generous amount of mozzarella made it a special treat. Homemade with love, not a quick and easy takeout...

  • -Isms: Views on life in rural America

    LuAnn Schindler, Publisher|Jul 6, 2023

    Katie Lee, a cookbook author, cooked up the perfect essence of summer when she said, “If summer had one defining scent, it’d definitely be the smell of barbecue.” Oh, so true. Summertime takes me back to days gone by, recreating visions of Dad grilling steak or pork chops on a charcoal grill in the backyard. The waft of barbecue reminds me of burgers on the grill and neighborhood get-togethers. And, since I’m writing this three days before my favorite holiday, I’m craving a juicy, stuffed b...

  • Neligh Sesquicentennial kicks off Thursday

    LuAnn Schindler, Publisher|Jun 29, 2023

    When John Neligh, William B. Lambert and John B. Thomson viewed the sprawling Elkhorn Valley, near present-day Neligh, in 1873, they could not have imagined how the original 500-acre tract would develop into a sprawling city, intersected by two major highways. After 150 years, the intersection of old and new will merge, as Neligh residents celebrate the city's sesquicentennial. While a handful of events are scheduled for Thursday and Friday, the bulk of activities will take place Saturday, July...

  • -Isms: Views on life in rural America

    LuAnn Schindler, Publisher|Jun 8, 2023

    It began with a yellow piece of paper, taped crookedly on a wall by four jagged pieces of electrical tape. A single word, written in blue block letters, spells out the theme of what many need to remember: BELIEVE. Three years ago, Jason Sudeikis’s “Ted Lasso” wrangled his way into living rooms and hearts, sharing his kooky, quirky, optimistic, Midwestern wisdom from Richmond Green, in England. The streaming show, featuring the American football coach taking over a British soccer team, premiered...

  • Project earns first place at county fair for Royal man

    Erin Schwager, Journalist|Aug 25, 2022

    Max Heiter, of Royal, took a project to the Antelope County Fair with low expectations. Later, he learned his open class exhibit received the first-place blue ribbon for the 65-and-over class. It all started when Heiter saw a fiber optic knife made by someone on the internet a little over a year ago. "I saw a fiber optic knife somebody made on the internet, so I get on the internet and looked for this fiber optic and I found it in Oklahoma," he said. "I thought 'I'm gonna try it; he did it,...

  • Wonderful Watermelon

    Terri Hahn, Journalist|Jul 7, 2022

    I’m not sure there is a food in the world that says “summer” more than watermelon. Although it’s early in the season, we eat it at Memorial Day cook-outs. The Fourth of July isn’t a proper celebration without this tasty treat. And we say good-bye to meteorological summer with a cold, crisp melon on Labor Day weekend. And don’t forget all those family reunions and backyard barbecues in between. For lots of reasons, I didn’t get to know my dad’s parents very well, but I do remember visiti...

  • Build a better burger

    Terri Hahn, Journalist|Jun 2, 2022

    I recently heard somewhere that burgers cooked in a cast iron skillet on the stovetop are better than burgers cooked on a grill. I’m not buying it. The “experts” say a skillet allows the patties to baste in their own juices as they cook and that’s a huge improvement over losing all-important moisture to the spatters that cause annoying grilling flare-ups. OK, that part I can get behind (and I’ll file the info for non-grilling season), but I still think burgers cooked on a grill are a summer trea...

  • -Isms: Views on life in rural America

    LuAnn Schindler, Publisher|Mar 24, 2022

    “I read recipes the same way I read science fiction. I get to the end and think, “Well, that’s not going to happen.” Truth. (Mad props to the person who devised the above-mentioned meme.) Honestly, that hasn’t always been my mindset. I like to cook. More than likely, I am the one who tries a new (or crazy) recipe and brings it to a family get-together. Picture this: An edible appetizer shaped like a Christmas tree, constructed of rye bread, pimento cheese spread, thinly-sliced roast beef, cho...
