I’ve never heard it ring,” she said of the phone, “but it’s there.”Jerry Wintz of Hartington, Nebraska, compiled his memories at Cather Hall from 1979 to 1981. He dislocated a kneecap while wrestling a buddy in Cather. The young men on his floor formed intramural football and basketball teams. Not surprisingly, there was some beer consumption as well.“We met a lot of good guys there in that hall,” said Wintz, who oversees Wintz Funeral Home in his hometown. “We had our fun. ...
