Blue Hill FFA Attends Husker Harvest Day

Staff

On Wednesday September 13, Blue Hill FFA went to Husker Harvest Day in Grand Island. Students were allowed to visit any booth with a friend. They walked around and saw different things like animals, cars, trucks, off-road vehicles and tractors. Irrigation companies like Reinke’s attended and gave students information.

There were hundreds of exhibitions that students were allowed to visit. One thing students loved most about visiting the booths was all of the free supplies that the vendors gave out. Senior FFA member, Trent Kort said, “Case IH was my favorite booth because I am a farmer and I love Case IH.” Many other schools attended and learned the ins and outs of the agriculture industry.  

Traffic Safety Event

by Katlyn Brooks

On Wednesday, May 3rd, freshmen through seniors from Blue Hill, along with Silver Lake students, traveled to Red Cloud to attend a Traffic Safety event at the school. With the help of County Attorney Jennifer Benson, Crash-Reconstructionist Chris Slocum made an excellent presentation of the consequences of drinking and driving. Also, they discussed the formulas they use to figure things out about car collisions. For example, the formulas for how fast the vehicle was traveling, when the accelerator and the brakes were being pressed, and even if the driver and/or passenger(s) were wearing a seatbelt.

Following the drinking and driving presentation was another presentation by Officer Troy Schmitz about the dangers of social media.

Next, the students were brought outside to witness a controlled collision. A car was placed sideways in the roadway, while another car was driven 35 mph, hitting the parked car in the side.

Before the ride home, the students were taken back to the school for a meal of Little Caesar’s pizza, chips, cookies and bottled water.

Overall, it was a day full of both learning and excitement.
