That was the challenge given to all teams competing in the First Robotic’s 2019 season and a challenge that six Aurora students took head on. Find out more in this week's print or e-editions.

There’s just nothin’ like a ’57 Chevy

On any given sunny day you can find Delmer and Donita Friesen cruising through town in their jet black 1957 Chevy convertible.
That car started Delmer down a path that led to the renovation of five 1957 Chevys and a 1955 Pontiac. This year he has started what he plans to be his last remodel, choosing yet another 1957 Chevy.

Airport soon to have a new runway

A “mountain of rock” visible just east of Highway 14 will soon become part of a new runway at the Aurora airport, part of a $3.38 million replacement project delayed some by brutal spring and winter weather.
Construction crews with Paulsen Inc. out of Cozad had planned to grind an estimated 8,000 ton of rock material into an underground pavement base last fall, but didn’t get the chance before cold temperatures pushed the work back until spring. February and March brought more cold, wet weather, so it’s catch-up time now at the airport, where the runway has been closed since September.
