Austin Durbin makes a catch against Harrisburg in the first half.

The South Shelby Cardinals jumped on the Harrisburg Bulldogs early by scoring 22 first quarter points and 32 second quarter points to cruise to a 60-8 win Friday night in Harrisburg.
   The Bulldogs, who are in their first year of varsity football, took the opening kickoff and went three and out.
   South Shelby’s first possession started from its own 14 yard line. Trace Windsor picked up two yards on first down and after a six yard gain by Brett Threlkeld, Windsor broke loose for 27 yards to the Cardinal 49 yard line.
   Threlkeld hooked up with Josh Ridgely for an 11 yard pass play to the 40 yard line of Harrisburg. Two plays later he found Chase Morrow for a 10 yard gain to the 21 yard line. After an 18 yard gain by Windsor, Threlkeld scored from three yards out. The two point conversion failed and the Cards held a 6-0 lead with 7:08 to play in the first quarter.

Newspaper Subscribers May Be the Victims in USPS Plant Closings

The U.S. Postal Service should evaluate the impact of slower service to newspaper subscribers before proceeding with 2015 closings of mail processing plants, National Newspaper Association President John Edgecombe Jr., said this week. Edgecombe is the publisher of The Nebraska Signal in Geneva, NE.
   NNA seconded the concern expressed by the USPS Office of the Inspector General that the Postal Service has not completed service impact evaluations on the planned closings of 82 more mail processing plants starting in January 2015. The evaluations should include public notice and comment. The OIG strongly recommended that USPS complete these evaluations and requested confirmation that they are being completed.
   NNA has previously reminded the Postal Service that the impact of moving mail processing operations into urban areas creates mail delivery problems for its subscribers, who may judge the effectiveness of the mail by the on-time arrival of their newspapers.
