YWCA providing meals for youth

The YWCA of Adams County has announced it will distribute free hot evening meals to area children and youth on weekdays for a three-week period beginning Monday.

Youth under age 18 will be able to pick up a hot meal to go at the curbside between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. at the YWCA, 2525 W. Second St. The program runs Monday through Friday, May 11-29.

No paperwork is required, but the young people must be present to receive a meal.

The organization has adjusted its normal Summer Food Program, which typically serves lunches to cover the dates the Hastings Public Schools lunch program is closed, to instead serve a hot supper with the approval of state officials.

At the present time, with schools closed due to the novel coronavirus disease pandemic, Hastings Public Schools is providing free to-go lunches and breakfast items for young people up to age 18 regardless of whether they attend HPS.

“We hope to help serve families in need by providing the extra meal of the day,” the YWCA said in a news release.

Man test-driving motorcycle dies after crashing it

OMAHA — An Omaha man who was test-driving a motorcycle died after crashing it into a wall, authorities said.

Jake Dunwoody, 31, was taking the bike for a spin in the Center Mall parking lot Monday afternoon when he crashed it into a concrete wall, the Omaha World-Herald reported. A witness told police that Dunwoody had made several circles in the lot and seemed to be getting more comfortable with the motorcycle when he picked up speed and crashed into the wall.

Dunwoody was taken to an Omaha hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
