Chieftain Web Press will Print Bibles in Africa

Chieftain Web Press will Print Bibles in Africa

In the fall of 1997, the Duane Kunzman family purchased an ATF News King web-press under the ownership of Family Newspapers, Inc. This press printed the weekly edition of the Tecumseh Chieftain from April 1998 through 2003 and then again from 2008 to 2017.

The ATF News King was made in Joplin, MO in the 1970s. It is a web-press, which means that rather than printing one sheet of paper at a time, like the most common commercial presses, it prints a continuous stream of paper speeding from a giant roll. It cuts off the paper after printing and folds it, in line, non-stop.

New Pool Will Not Open This Summer

New Pool Will Not Open This Summer

At their May 4 meeting conducted through a teleconference, the Tecumseh City Council unanimously voted NOT to open the new swimming pool this summer due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The City Council’s vote came following strong recommendations from the League of Risk Management to not open community public pools. Many communities across Nebraska have already made the decision to keep their pools closed this summer.

Also at this time, residents of Tecumseh and southeast Nebraska continue to observe social distancing and limit groups to 10 or less. The Tecumseh City Council felt it was wise and prudent to make the decision now to allow those who applied for jobs at the pool to know they should look for summer employment elsewhere.

Devotion to Mother Lasts More Than Just One Day for Buchholz Family

Devotion to Mother Lasts More Than Just One Day for Buchholz Family

As a tribute to Mother’s Day, Bell Terrace would like to recognize Milton Buchholz for his kind, selfless acts of daily devotion to his Mother, Lela Buchholz, who resides at Belle Terrace. The special bond and love witnessed between these two is sure to leave anyone emotional and be a reminder of what is truly important every day, and certainly in today’s chaotic times of COVID-19 isolation.

The 100-year-old Buchholz family farm located 2 miles east of Elk Creek is where this story begins. Milton, the only son and the middle child of Harold and Lela Buchholz, farmed together with his folks all his life and just recently began renting the farm ground out. Milton’s day job for 32 years has been working for the Johnson County Road Department.
