Summer Reading Winners

Our Summer Reading Program was a cooperative effort this year. The Sargent Chamber of Commerce provided ice-cream cones for the kids for reading 300 pages. We gave out 39 ice-cream cones. For an additional incentive, NCTC provided bikes. Saturday, we had a drawing and the winners were Lane Moody and Cassandra Olson. Congratulations kids!

Sargent Area Homesteaders

Here’s a famous picture taken by Solomon Butcher of the Sylvester Rawding family.  The image is deceiving because it appears that the cow is standing on the roof of the house.  Apparently Sylvester Rawding was also a deceiver and an expert at tall tales. Mr. Rawding claimed that a large bump on his head was from a Civil war bullet lodged in his forehead. You can read the rest of his story at the Nebraska Historical Society’s website.
