School bus driver retires after 40 years

For the past 40 years Gene Wuebben has been a constant figure in the lives of students who rode the bus to East Catholic in Bow Valley, as well as those who shared the ride to other area schools.

Last month, he retired his set of school bus keys, and now the parish, school and community at large will be honoring him Dec. 6.

"All through my school years, he was my bus driver," said Mary Klug, who is now head teacher at East Catholic School. "He was for a lot of adults around here.

Fremont school to open ahead of schedule

FREMONT - Construction of the new Archbishop Bergan Elementary School is nearly six months ahead of schedule, which means students will attend classes there in January, Father Owen Korte, president of the Catholic school and pastor at St. Patrick Church, said Oct. 19 at a press conference at the new school.

The school, located across the street from St. Patrick Church at 1515 Johnson Road, was originally set to open next summer.

Bishops promote pro-life health care message

Catholic bishops - the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Nebraska's three bishops - are taking their pro-life message on health care reform to the people.

The U.S. bishops announced plans Oct. 30 to target some 19,000 parishes around the country with bulletin inserts explaining their stand and asking people to contact their representatives in Congress. The information included a Web site - www.usccb.org/action - that can be used to contact elected officials.

Principal uses life experiences to help students

WINNEBAGO - As St. Augustine Indian Mission celebrates the 100th anniversary of its first day of school Nov. 8, Principal Don Blackbird Jr. reflects on his personal history and how his experiences can help students at the reservation's K-8 Catholic school.

"The winding path I took to get here gives me a different perspective when speaking with the kids and dealing with the kids," said Blackbird, 31, who attended St. Augustine from first through eighth grade.

That path included becoming a high school dropout and struggling with his faith.
