At approximately 5:44 PM on Monday, February 4th , the City of McCook Fire Department responded to a reported fire at 811 East 2 nd Street. Upon arrival of the fire department at 5:46 PM, personnel reported heavy smoke and fire coming from the rear of the structure. Two occupants were able to escape the structure by exiting the front door. Crews quickly extinguished the fire that burned up the exterior of the back of the house and into a bedroom through a window.

The fire was under control within five minutes of the arrival of the fire department and before the fire could extend further into the interior of the home.

The resident of the structure, Mr. Jonathan Scott, reported that he was in the house, along with another resident, when all of the lights went out. Mr. Scott exited the structure and went around to the back yard where a generator was located that was supplying electricity to the house. Mr. Scott found the generator and several items around it, along with the siding of the house on fire. Mr. Scott went back into the home and advised the other resident of the fire. They both began looking for their pet cats and, when the smoke became too intense, they exited the structure.

Fire damage was contained to exterior of the back of the home while there was smoke damage throughout the home. The home was valued at just over $27,000 and $15,000 for the contents. Initial damage estimates were at $10,000 on the structure and $1,000 to the contents.

Members of the fire department completed the investigation and determined that the fire started in the rear of the structure from gasoline fumes being emitted from a gas powered generator. The fumes ignited and quickly spread to nearby combustible materials and the exterior of the home itself.

The Red Cross was notified and provided the resident with assistance.

Sixteen firefighters, two pumpers, one ladder truck, one ambulance and one command vehicle were on the scene for approximately 1 ½ hours making sure the fire had not spread into the interior and clearing smoke out of the structure.

Nebraska State Patrol Release 
The suspect of an officer-involved shooting incident is in custody following a multi-agency search in rural Howard County in the overnight hours of December 31 into January 1.

The incident began in the evening hours of December 31 when the Howard County Sheriff’s Office attempted a traffic stop near the intersection of Dannevirke Road and Page Road north of Elba. The suspect, identified as Luke Lefever, 30, of Broken Bow, then engaged the deputies with a handgun. During the exchange, Lefever was able to gain access to a Sheriff’s Office vehicle and fled south on Page Road. The suspect also gained access to a shotgun stored in the cruiser. The cruiser spun out and a second exchange of gunfire took place. The suspect then fled on foot. Officers from the St. Paul Police Department were also involved, but did not discharge their weapons.

At that point, troopers from the Nebraska State Patrol, deputies from the Howard County, Merrick County, Valley County, and Sherman County Sheriff’s Offices, St. Paul and Scotia police officers, and others arrived on scene and set up a perimeter. NSP SWAT was called in and the NSP helicopter was deployed to assist in the search. Using an NSP light armored vehicle (LAV), SWAT began searching the area.

With information gained by the NSP helicopter, SWAT was able to track the suspect into a creek bed east of Page Road. Upon locating the suspect, an NSP K9 was deployed to help take him into custody. The shotgun was found at the scene. Lefever was found with a gunshot wound to his left forearm and was showing signs of hypothermia. He was transported out of the area using the LAV and then transported to the St. Paul hospital for treatment. He was then transported by medical helicopter to St. Elizabeth Regional Medical Center in Lincoln.

No officers were injured at any point throughout the incident. At the request of the Howard County Sheriff’s Office, NSP is leading the investigation. A determination of charges is pending and the suspect will be in custody while at the hospital.

Elba Fire and Rescue and St. Paul Rescue also assisted in the incident.

The McCook City and Volunteer Fire Department will be conducting a training burn in the 1400 block of West J Street in McCook on Saturday, December 8th. The training is scheduled to begin at 9:00 AM. A vacant residential structure located on the lot next to Master Carts LLC, the former Propes Golf Carts Sales & Service. Water will be supplied by a fire hydrant located approximately 300’ west of the site. The water supply hose will have West 14th and J Street blocked off during the training exercise.

This training provides firefighters with the opportunity to learn different tactics in fighting structural fires under a more controlled environment than the actual structure fires that firefighters respond to.
The process of gaining approval to utilize a structure for live fire training is a lengthy process that requires several permits and inspections prior to getting approval from the State Fire Marshal, State Department of Environmental Quality, Clean Air Division and the Department of Health and Human Services. The training is invaluable to the firefighters as it allows them to experience live fire conditions under a more controlled environment.
The public is welcome to watch, however, we ask that you stay a safe distance away and avoid impeding traffic in the area.
If anyone would like more information on this process, please contact the fire department at 308-345-5710 or email at firechief@cityofmccook.com.


(CAMBRIDGE, Neb.) (February 20, 2019) – The Tri Valley Health System Board of Trustees has voted that due to numerous financial factors, it will close Cambridge Manor long-term care. The hospital, clinics, and assisted living facility will continue operating. “Tri Valley Health System has provided a wide range of senior living services for a number of years, andwe’re proud of the positive impact we’ve been able to make in the lives of residents and their families,”said Paul Shellabarger, President of the Tri Valley Health System Board of Trustees. “The economics of health care are changing, and many of these factors have brought us to the point of this difficult decision.”

The Tri Valley Health System Board voted on this decision at its January meeting. The nursing home will close on June 30, 2019. The Board also voted to explore transitioning the operations of Heritage Plaza to the City.
“Our residents and employees are our top concern in announcing this decision,” said Keith Luedders, Interim CEO of Tri Valley Health System.
Tri Valley staff will find alternative placement for the 22 residents of the long-term care center. They and their families have been notified of this decision by letter. “Tri Valley will work with residents and families to find the best possible option for their given situation and help arrange for a smooth transition,” Luedders said.
For employees, Tri Valley Human Resources staff will help staff to find new employment. There are a number of job openings within Tri Valley and within area nursing facilities. Finances are the reason for this decision. “Our facilities are in urgent need of upgrades and repairs amounting to over $1.5 million, yet on the income side, our long-term care enterprise is losing money every month because Medicaid reimbursement is not sufficient to keep up with rising expenses,” said Paul Shellabarger, President of the Board of Trustees of Tri Valley Health Services. “By being proactive in its actions, the facility will avoid threatening the viability of the rest of the campus, including the hospital, clinics, and assisted living facility.”
“We looked into numerous options and in the end, our board members believed this decision was in the best interest overall for the health system and the community. We are thankful to be able to continue operating our local hospital and we will certainly do everything we can to help those residents and employees who are affected by this decision,” Shellabarger said.

Last week the McCook Community College volleyball program reached a milestone of sorts when the seventh of seven graduating sophomores signed a letter of intent to continue playing volleyball – “Seven for Seven” as MCC Coach Hayley Kobza is calling the journey that has landed all seven of her sophomores scholarships to continue playing the sport after they graduate from MCC.

Those seven sophomores include Ashley Carson, Hanna Emerson, Ryan Maddera, Onyessah Rocha, Brooklyn Evans, Haley Jacobsen and Ty Johnson.

These players were part of a sophomore squad helping lead the Lady Indians to back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time this century and also helped MCC capture its first Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference Championship in 38 years and finished the season at 21-14, which included wins against two top-20 ranked opponents.

Of the seven MCC players, two are former high school teammates who were “discovered” at MCC during an open tryout in 2016 will play Division I volleyball. Two other MCC teammates will move on to play for the same team, one will play for a Division II program and four will play for National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) schools. Two are headed to South Carolina, two are headed to Missouri, one is going to Louisiana, one to Texas and one will play in Kansas.

Here’s a summary of the players, their season highlights and where they’re headed:

Ashley Carson, Ord, will continue her volleyball career as a setter at Division 2 Coker College in Hartsville, South Carolina. One of three co-captains on the team, she was named to the all-Region IX volleyball team, had 1,268 sets – the most in Region IX, and sixth best among all setters in the nation. In addition Carson had 37 service aces, 237 digs, 40 blocks and 56 kills. She was also named to the Omaha World-Herald all-Nebraska team for players from two-year colleges.

Hannah Emerson, a 6-2 middle blocker from Greeley West High School in Colo., will play at NCAA Division I Coastal Carolina in Conway, South Carolina. She received honorable mention on the Omaha World-Herald All Nebraska team. She played in 35 matches this season and her block numbers were in the top 10 in the Region IX South Division in the four major blocking categories. She assisted on 106 blocks, tops in the division, was second in total blocks with 124, second with 0.94 blocks per set, and ninth in solo blocks with 18. Her block assist numbers were ninth most in the nation. This fall, Emerson’s Chanticleers will play the University of Nebraska on Sept. 21 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

Ryan Maddera 6-1, who played outside hitter and middle for the Indians will play setter at Division 1 Southeast Louisiana in Hammond, La. Like her high school teammate Emerson, both came to MCC for an open tryout and two years later both earned scholarships to play volleyball this Fall at the Division 1 level. Maddera played in 35 matches this past season for the Lady Indians and recorded 398 kills, 228 digs, 16 solo blocks, 73 total blocks and 42 service aces. She ranked fourth among hitters in the Region IX South division in total kills, her 3.18 kills per set ranked seventh, and total blocks ranked 14th. She also received honorable mention for the Omaha World-Herald all-Nebraska team.

Brooklyn Evans, a 5-7 libero from Ogden, Utah, who converted from setter after her freshman season, will continue her career at NAIA Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo. Evans, named co-captain in August, played in 35 matches for the Lady Indians leading the team in digs with 321 (2.43 per game). That total ranked ninth among players in the Region IX South Division. She also had 98 assists (10th most in the division) and 37 service aces (ranked 11th in the region). Evans received honorable mention for the Omaha World-Herald all-Nebraska team. She will continue playing her libero/defensive position for the Vikings.

Haley Jacobsen is a 5-9 middle blocker/right side hitter from Chatfield High School in Littleton Colo., who will join MCC teammate Brooklyn Evans at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo. Jacobsen played in 25 matches for the Lady Indians where she had 78 kills, 41 digs, and 50 total blocks. Her blocks per set total (0. 66) was 11th best in among players competing in the Region IX South Division. At Missouri Valley College, she expects to continue playing right side where she spent most of her time this past season.

Ty Johnson, a 5-8 outside hitter from Conroe, Texas returns to her home state to play volleyball at Wiley College in Marshall, Texas. Johnson, one of three co-captains, played in all 35 matches and had 227 kills on the season, 45 service aces, 97 digs, and 93 blocks. She ranked second in the south sub-region in block assists (84) and was fourth in hitting percentage (.261). She received honorable mention for the Omaha World-Herald all-Nebraska team. Johnson expects to play middle for the Lady Wildcats.

Onyessah Rocha, 5-5 libero from Topeka, Kan. returns to her home state to play for NAIA Ottawa University where she will play for the Braves, who won the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament Championship and earned the program its sixth trip (fourth straight appearance), at the NAIA National Tournament. Rocha expects to compete for the starting libero position.

 

ALL SEVEN OF McCook Community College’s volleyball sophomores have now signed on to continue their volleyball careers at the next level. Pictured are (front row from left): Onyessah Rocha, Ty Johnson, Ashley Carson. (Back row): Haley Jacobsen, Hannah Emerson, Coach Hayley Kobza, Ryan Maddera and Brooklyn Evans.
