Sideline Power Names Sheil Employee of the Year
Within his meteoric rise from Sales and Marketing Representative to Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Marc Sheil shows the breadth of his business accumen time and time again. Just as Sideline Power rose from humble beginnings, traditions also have humble points of origin. This year, Sideline Power CEO, Matt Starr is proud to announce that Marc Sheil has been awarded 2017 Employee of The Year.
Over the last several years, Sheil has been an integral contributor in the planning and execution for new avenues of business including the implementation of the new Sideline Power store front. In addition to driving sales, Marc facilitates creation and implementation of key marketing endeavors such as marketing videos, trade shows, and personalized product demonstrations and sales calls. When asked about how Sheil contributes to the overall team environment, Starr mused, “Marc is more than just a team player. He constantly strives to go above and beyond what is expected. His dedication and commitment are exemplary.”
In addition to growing the business and customer base for Sideline Power, Sheil has been instrumental in finding, vetting, and hiring new employees which allows Sideline Power to experience continued growth. When Starr began Sideline Power, selling headsets out of a basement office and warehouse, he never expected in a few short years the business would grow to a multi-million-dollar endeavor with dedicated employees for sales, support, and service. “With Marc’s daily leadership, Sideline Power has experienced exponential growth in both new customer accounts, revenue generated, and expansion of quality, long-term team members,” said Starr.

BLUEJAY BREAKFAST....PLEASE JOIN US
Wednesday, December 13
As part of continued efforts to engage our community, patrons, and parents in the education of our children, we will be hosting a “Bluejay Breakfast” on the second Wednesday of each month during the school year. Our next “Bluejay Breakfast” will be held at 7:20 a.m. on Wednesday, December 13th, in the Middle School/High School cafeteria. A free breakfast will be served at 7:20 a.m. Following breakfast, an informative program will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m. EVERYONE is welcome to attend this event, and we are hoping for a large turnout of parents, grandparents, patrons, and members of our local businesses.
Outstanding information will be provided at each “Bluejay Breakfast.” On December 13th, Ashland-Greenwood staff and administration will outline information related to Team BLUE. Team BLUE is our district student support program. It is focused on providing interventions to help students find success, and can address both academic and behavioral needs. It is based off of the idea of a multi-tiered system of support, and aims to give teachers additional suggestions and supports within their classroom. In addition, Team BLUE is also focused on implementing a Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) system to create common language and expectations throughout each school building.
This is a new approach to our previous SAT program, and was just started this school year. We are working on implementation at the elementary and middle school levels right now, and will eventually move it into the high school as well.
The presentation will conclude at approximately 8:00 a.m. Feel free to park at the north end of the lot. You may use the sidewalk around the north side to access the northwest cafeteria entrance.
I am confident that attendees will find the presentations to be engaging, informative, and educational. This is our opportunity to build strong lines of communication with our constituents and to promote the incredible things happening within our district. And, as a reminder, it includes a FREE BREAKFAST!
Please email me at email@example.com if you plan to attend.
We hope to see you at the Middle School/High School cafeteria on Wednesday, December 13th, at 7:20 a.m.

FARM BEGINNINGS® PROGRAM TO BEGIN IN JANUARY IN NEBRASKA CITY
Nebraska Extension is planning its 9th Farm Beginnings® Program at the Kimmel Education and Research Center at 5985 G Road Nebraska City, NE 68410 for January, 2018. Plans are being made for Nebraska Extension and the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society to facilitate the Farm Beginnings® Program to be held in Nebraska City. The Farm Beginnings® Program is an educational training and support program designed to help people who want to evaluate and plan their farm enterprise. Farm Beginnings® participants engage in a mentorship experience and network with a variety of successful, innovative farmers; attend practical, high quality seminars, field days and conferences. The program is unique in that several successful farmers participate in the program as presenters, explaining firsthand the nuts and bolts of their farming operation. While this isn’t a program for someone wanting to get into conventional farming, it is a program that has attracted several people interested in farming on a smaller scale, some who have migrated out from urban to rural areas. One past participant in the class said, “This program had a huge impact. I have improved my business plan, my overall efficiency and continue to try new ideas I thought to not be possible.” Any beginning farmer would benefit from attending these training sessions. Most of the farmers that present come from small to medium sized farming operations that produce and market many different diversified and value-added products. Many of these farmers direct market their products.
Participants of this course may be interested in becoming involved with growing alternative crops, producing fruits and vegetables for direct sale to consumers, grocery stores or restaurants. Others may be interested in growing livestock for direct marketing. This is an opportunity for people interested in learning about this type of farming from farmers that are doing it and making a living at it.
The Farm Beginnings® Program consists of a series of 11 sessions from January through April that cover a variety of topics including: building networks, goal setting, whole farm planning, building your business plan, marketing, business and farm management and financial management. While the class participants will learn firsthand from the farmers, they will also work on developing their own business plan as they progress through the course. As part of the class tuition, participants will also have the opportunity to attend the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society’s Healthy Farms Conference in 2018 to be held this winter. This is a conference that has been held annually for a number of years and has sessions that focus on topics in sustainable agriculture, such as: vegetable production, grass-fed beef, pasture poultry, meat and dairy goat production, composting, cover crops, organic farming, growing crops in high-tunnels, bee keeping, farm transitioning and agri-tourism. We also schedule farm tours early in the course and tour several farms in the summer to see how the farmers are operating. If interested, participants also have the opportunity to have a farmer mentor.
Cost of the total program is $500, but you may qualify for a partial scholarship for up to $200. For more information, a brochure for the Farm Beginnings® Program or an application go to our website at https://extension.unl.edu/statewide/nemaha/farm-beginnings-0/. For more information about the program you can also contact Gary Lesoing, Extension Educator at email@example.com or at (402) 274-4755, Nebraska Extension in Nemaha County.
