1992 Wellington High School graduate Chad Fuller suffers broken neck after slide accident

Chad Fuller

Sumner Newscow report — Chad Fuller, a 1992 Wellington High School graduate, was seriously injured Saturday in an accident at a lake near St. Paul, Neb. Fuller is the son of Bob Fuller, who was the WHS football coach in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Fuller, who is an assistant principal at David City, Neb, was with family at his brother’s home on Lake of the Woods, Rusty Fuller said on social media. He was injured sliding head-first into the water and was taken to CHI St. Francis in Grand Island, where he underwent several hours of surgery after suffering a broken neck.

On Sunday afternoon, Superintendent Chad Denker said David City school administrators had notified staff about the incident and would delay a broader announcement out of respect for the Fuller family, according to an article in the Lincoln Journal Star.

Denker confirmed reports that Fuller suffered a broken neck.

“Unfortunately, he is currently paralyzed from the neck down as a result,” Denker said in the note to staff. “The doctors do not know the long-term prognosis at this time, but know it will be a long recovery.”

Wellington Police Chief: Be mindful of parade rules including staying on sidewalks and not throwing items from cars

by Tracy Heath, Wellington Police Chief —  I just love this time of year….hate the heat but “WHEATFEST” signifies to me that fall is just around the corner. Speaking of WHEATFEST, this year’s parade route is the same as last year, starting at Second and Third and Washington, north to Harvey Street, turning west to Jefferson and then south on Jefferson ending at Lincoln and Jefferson.

As we travel along the parade route, with the barricades and fencing around the Lincoln Place building, WPD will be keeping foot traffic out of this area. Unfortunately, parade sightseers will not be allowed to stand in this area. As the parade nears Harvey & Washington, we noticed last year as the parade turns the crowd seems to narrow. As a reminder, WPD is requesting sightseers remain on the sidewalk.

For those that will be participating in the parade, be mindful that the City has a law prohibiting the throwing of objects from any entries – vehicles and floats in the parade. This does not prohibit parade participates from walking along the parade route handing out items. We would hate to see someone get hurt running into the street to pick up candy or other items.

Please note the following ordinance:

Culture Cow: Podcasts are not just for your hipster friends anymore; Spider-Man finally done right

by Devin McCue, Sumner Newscow — We all already know that major corporations and the union of witches got together and designed children’s entertainment to annoy parents and turn kids into lizard people, so its nice to find out that there is something better.  NPR has a podcast called Wow in the World that will entertain, and educate, kids without making their parents roll down the windows to escape the noise.  

If unfamiliar with what podcasts are, they’re in that purple app that everyone moves into the “extras” folder on their home-screen the first day they open their phone.  They release new episodes every couple of days and its absolutely free.  If you have no kids, but still hate the radio, NPR has several informative and entertaining podcasts for the inquisitive type.


21 Savage finally dropped his second album and it probably took him so long because of the sheer length of the thing: 14 songs, culminating in a 7-minute freestyle, aptly titled 7 Min Freestyle, Issa shows off 21’s rising stock as an Atlanta artist even when he’s not collaborating with his favorite producer Metro Booming.

A true street rapper, 21 takes shots at imitators and also throws in a few love songs in an attempt to make people forget his last album had a stabbing knife on the cover.  Issa has a number of great songs that match up Savage’s clever, but brutal, rhyming style with thundering beats perfectly emulating the Atlanta style; early favorites include Bank Account and Thug Life.
