Al Davis Demands KSDZ Retraction

October 19, 2016 -- Senator Al Davis has demanded a retraction from KSDZ talk-show host Jim Lambley for what Davis said is a “bald-faced” lie. Davis is endorsed by the National Rifle Association for his strong support of gun rights and the Second Amendment.
On his talk show this morning, Lambley, owner-operator of the radio station in Gordon, “lied when he said I was ‘working with Ernie Chambers for an assault weapons ban’,” said Davis. “Lambley continued the lie by then claiming that I am ‘anti-gun’. Nothing could be further from the truth.
“These lies show the extent to which my opponent and his supporters will go in their attempts to discredit me and my campaign,” said Davis. “It is particularly despicable in that this newest in their list of lies about me was conveniently put forward on the day Cherry County rural voters received their ballots.”
“I received the NRA endorsement for good reason -- I have consistently and strongly stood up for the 2nd Amendment in the Nebraska Legislature and will continue to do so,” said Davis.
Davis said he is demanding a retraction from Mr. Lambley, and will file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission if a retraction is not made without delay.

The Sandhills Cancer Fund's 8th Annual “Riders Unite for the Fight Against Cancer” fundraiser was held on October 15th. All things considered, $17,491 was raised for the organization that has donated roughly $150,000 divided up among hundreds of area residents to help offset costs of fighting cancer.
The “ride” itself, combined with a 50/50 drawing, raised $1,065. A freewill donation supper provided by the Brown County, Cherry County, and Rock County Hospitals brought in a total of $1,065. The silent auction that evening provided a total of $1,801, while the live auction brought in a total of $6,812. The quilt drawing made $1,011 while other donations added $4,516 to the total.
On Friday, October 14th, the golf tournament raised $1,221 for the cause.
Thanks to everyone who generously helped to make this event a success.
