Accident in Friend

Nebraska State Patrol confirmed on Friday that two individuals - Crystal Gerdes, 53, and Isaac Speece, 11 - died from injuries suffered in a vehicle-pedestrian accident Thursday morning. Speece in his wheelchair and Gerdes, his caretaker, were walking down Page Street in Friend when they were struck by a truck.

The Nebraska State Patrol said the crash remains under investigation.

Book time

The Seward Memorial Library reopens on Monday, albeit with limited capacity and required masks. But at least that's coming back.

Hot dog!

Seward's latest downtown culinary novelty, FlyDogz, opened its new drive-thru on Friday. They're also available for catering and carryout orders in case you're curious about hotdogs covered in toppings.

Steady

The Four Corners Health Department stated Seward County remains firm at 28 cases of coronavirus and 19 people have recovered. That's that final update before the new Direct Health Measures are implemented on Monday.
