The Business and Community Education department at Mid-Plains Community College will take its Free Youth ATV Training to the Dundy County Fairgrounds in Benkelman on June 14.

 

There will be additional trainings in McCook and Imperial.

 

“The need for quality rider safety training is becoming more of a necessity every year as we continue to see serious injuries attributed to ATVs,” said Crystal Welch, Business and Community Education coordinator. “We are happy to offer this very important training to our area youth.”

 

There will be two sessions to choose from at each training: 9 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m. Classes will be divided by age group, 6-9 and 10-16. Six students from each age group will be allowed in each session.

Instruction topics will include ATV injury and fatality statistics, how ATV size can contribute to rollover injuries and fatalities, the dangers of carrying passengers and material on ATVs, risks of traveling on public roads and safety procedures and practices.

 

Those who complete the program successfully will receive a certificate that aligns with insurance company requirements.

 

ATVs in different sizes will be used during the trainings. Parents of children younger than 10 must stay for their child’s class.

 

Other requirements include:

§Closed-toe footwear (preferably over the ankle)

§Long, non-flare pants

§A long-sleeved shirt or jacket

Ray Torres, age 24 of Scottsbluff was arrested following multiple pursuits in and near the northwest area of Scottsbluff. 

 

At approximately 10:41 this morning, a Deputy on patrol observed Ray Torres driving a vehicle on W. 42nd Street near highway 71.  The Deputy soon confirmed multiple arrest warrants for Torres, and attempted to stop the vehicle.  Torres fled and drove through fields, private land and a tree row north of Scottsbluff, eventually heading south on Highway 71 and into the City of Scottsbluff where officers lost contact.

 

Another Deputy located the vehicle in a yard in the 2900 block between Avenue I and Dineen and observed a male running in the neighborhood.  Deputies with the assistance of Scottsbluff PD and the Nebraska State Patrol created a perimeter around the area but were unsuccessful in locating the male.

There have been many questions and concerns about what the city is going to do with the land where the Central Nebraska Veterans Home sits. Just last week Grand Island Mayor Jeremy Jensen announced with the hiring of Olsson Associates the city is ready to start the planning process. Mayor Jensen said that plans are far from final and community input will be vital.

One of the concerns that has been addressed is some veterans feel as if they’ve had no say, and believe that now is time for veterans to be heard about the use of the Veterans Home property. Mayor Jensen doesn’t disagree.

Another important piece of information to know moving forward is that plans and ideas brought forth in the public meetings all won’t happen overnight.

There’s no doubt Grand Island residents and veterans are passionate about this issue and Mayor Jensen believes that passion will be beneficial if pointed towards the future, and not the past.

The McCook Community College baseball team opens the 2018 season Saturday with a roster full of returning position players but a very young pitching staff.

MCC opens play Saturday in Liberal, Kan. against Seward County and Coach Jon Olsen will rely on his team’s experience and solid batting order to lead the team while the pitching staff develops.

The Indians return 10 guys who started games last year. “Technically we can start a player at every position who started at some point last year,” Olsen said.

On the mound, MCC’s 2018 roster has three pitchers with 40 innings of experience between them. The Indians must reload a pitching staff that set a school record for strikeouts in a season, 410. The trio of returners had 32.

“On the mound, we are going to be counting on guys to step up and do well for us as freshmen,” Olsen said. “We have 14 arms, only one who pitched more than 10 innings last year.” The Indians will have six true freshman among the pitchers and with five transfers.

“We have some talented arms in this program but some of them don’t have a ton of experience,” Olsen said.

MBB standings graphicMCC is coming off a 29-27 season and a 20-16 conference mark, which was fourth best in what has become a highly-competitive Empire Conference that includes Western Nebraska, Northeastern JC, Trinidad State, Lamar, Otero, and Miles. 2017 marked MCC’s first back-to-back playoff appearances since the post-season format changed in 2008. The top four teams in the standings advance to the post-season playoffs.

The coach doesn’t look for falloff from any conference foes.

“I have a ton of respect for the coaches in this conference, they all get things done in different ways but if you don’t show up ready to play in any conference game, you’re going to get beat,” Olsen said.

He pointed out the top five teams in the conference were separated by three games in the standings.

Olsen said in looking at all the teams it’s difficult to say that one team is a clear-cut favorite.

“Every team is a little like us, really strong in one area and some questions in other areas. There isn’t one team with a ton of experience in both pitching and offense. This conference is going to be a wide-open dogfight,” Olsen said.

Sophomore bats will be the key for the Indians to make it a third straight playoff appearance. Last year MCC dropped its first six conference games before the playoff run.

First baseman/outfield Jacob Sanford, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, earned first team Region IX honors last year and catcher Dylan White, Las Vegas, was a second-team all-region selection as a freshman.

The Indian offense has players who produced well as freshmen. Of the eight position players with at least 18 games played, they collectively had 1,030 plate appearances while hitting .297 with 31 homeruns, 150 RBIs, a .386 on-base average and a .469 slugging percentage.

Olsen is expecting even better production from this core-group of sophomores and key offensive contributions from his newcomers but he said with inexperienced pitchers, it will be imperative MCC step up its defense.

“Last year we were bad defensively, but we had high strikeout guys on the mound that shielded our defense.”

The first of 25 scheduled home games is set for Feb. 21 when the Indians take on Colby in a nine-inning 3 p.m. Game. MCC has home doubleheaders scheduled with Hastings JV Feb. 22 and against Northeast CC Feb. 28.

Here is a look at the 2018 Indians by position:

CATCHER: Sophomore Dylan White and freshman Beau Hawley, Greeley, Colo., are expected to see the majority of the action. White hit .348 last season with five homers and 19 RBI. When he was injured during the fall, Hawley was able to step in and get a lot of experience. “Dylan had a good year for us and is a good defender as well, and with the experience Beau got in the fall I’m pretty happy with where we are there,” Olsen said.

FIRST BASE: Jay Sanford will anchor the MCC lineup as the Indians’ top returning hitter batting .345 with 11 homeruns and 39 RBI. The sophomore will play first base and also leftfield, which will allow Jonny Giunta, Milton, Ontario, (who started 14 games last year) time in the lineup.

MIDDLE INFIELD: Four sophomores are expected to fill the lineup this year at second base, shortstop, and third base. Jason Hill, Surrey, B.C., started 44 games last year and batted .313 with a .435 on-base percentage. Mike Sookdeo, Bramton, Ontario, played mostly at DH last year where he hit .237 with seven homeruns and 32 RBI and will likely see time at third base this year. Angel Mojica, Denver, is one of MCC’s most improved players according to Olsen having played 16 games last year with a .194 batting average. Hunter Rynders, Centennial, Colo., can play all infield spots and saw action in 18 games last year batting .300. Of his incoming freshman the coach has tabbed Julio Seperich, Las Vegas, as his best overall defender on the team both in the infield and the outfield. Olsen expects him to see starts at second base, third, shortstop and centerfield. Freshman Jacob Reid, Mississauga, Ontario, is a player who can provide very good offense and Mark Starks, Blair gives the Indians depth and offensive pop off the bench.

OUTFIELD: In addition to Sanford and Seperich, three returning sophomores look to frequent the lineup from the outfield. Tanner Zeggil, Stagner, Ontario, played in 46 games a year ago and batted .310 with a pair of home runs. Chris Bellemere, Grande-Carriere, Quebec, started 17 games and homered three times and drove in 10 with a .203 batting average and .390 slugging. Dalton Barling, Ashland, saw action in 16 games batting .212,

STARTING PITCHING: McCook High School’s Kaden Sitzman emerges as the staff’s most experienced pitcher appearing in 16 games, starting four, and compiling a 3-3 record in 29.1 innings with 25 strikeouts. Other candidates for the starting rotation include: Jacob Lombardelli, Windsor, Colo., Connor McGonigal, Omaha Burke, and high school teammates Jesse Bloom and Ryan Marstiller, Centennial, Colo.

BULLPEN: Sophomore Tyler Cox, Mississauga, emerged as the top relief pitcher during fall camp. He appeared in five games, threw 8.1 innings and posted a 1-0 record with a 2.16 earned run average last season. The other sophomore is David Perez, Las Vegas, who worked in three innings last year over four appearances. Freshmen pitchers with a chance to work their way into key roles include: Shaun Hickey, Summerville, N.B.; Connor Williams, Milton, Ontario; Casey Quagliano, Colby, Kan.; Keyshawn Royal, Tampa; and three Greeley, Colo., pitchers in Spencer Ray, Braydon Peif and Micah Dorsey.
