The St. Cecilia Track team has been set as a Class C team for 2005. Last year, STC competed in Class B, making us the smallest B team in the state. This year we will be one of the largest Class C teams in the State.

We’re loaded with talent, so I’m excited to see what we’ll do as the season comes. Many STC athletes have been training in the Preseason, if not already playing Basketball. This dedication can only mean good things.

I was pleasantly suprised to learn that Rick Sheehy has become the Lt. Governor of Nebraska. He was the mayor of Hastings, and has spent many years in public service for our area. He was a relentless advocate for western Nebraska. Rick has always been accessible and easy to talk to, I can remember lots of great conversations with him over the past few years.

Congratulations, I am excited to see what Lt. Governor Sheehy will help to achieve over the next term.

I just got back from Vail, Colorado. I visited Scott Miller, a friend from college. Nothing like hanging out in Vail with a local. We went to the MTV2 Snocore Concert. I saw Chevelle, Helmet, Strata, and Future Leaders of the World. Strata was selling their latest album for $5, it was a steal. I really recommend their CD.

Vail is one of the best places to be, the scenery was great while snoshoeing. Check out the gallery. Never thought walking around would be so tiring, it was a great workout.

If you plan to donate to Tsunami Relief, be sure that you’re donating to a reputable charity organization. Your goodwill can quickly be invalidated by putting your assistance into the wrong hands. You can check Give.org or the American Institute of Philanthropy.

Try to choose experienced orgranizations that puts majority of the donations toward relief, and not ‘management’ costs, padding the pockets of a few people in charge. One reputable organization is the Catholic Relief Services. I personally trust a faith based organization to provide more complete and full relief per dollar, over any other organizaiton.
