Jacie Milius of Gladstone has joined the Thayer, Nuckolls, and Clay county UNL Extension office as of June 2.

Milius comes to the office with a wide variety of experiences that will make her an assets to the 4-H community for those counties.

Milius, herself, has shown in 4-H since she was eight years old and upon graduation from Adams Central High School in Hastings, she began volunteering her skills to help better how 4-H serves its communities.

I was really interested in textiles and crafts, Milius said. But I also showed beef and sheep and had a rabbit or two that I always entered into the fair. I guess you could say I have two groups of friends, my summer friends that were all about 4-H and then my school friends.

120 Years Ago

1894

The Jefferson County Journal

Two intersecting footbridges at the intersection of Sixth and G streets were damaged by high water from heavy rains.

John E. Heasty, Fairbury lawyer, was busy. He was mayor, chairman of the county Republican Central Committee, recently married, and his law partner, W.O. Hambel, had been killed in the Rock Island wreck near Lincoln, throwing all the legal work of the firm on him.

Jefferson County Republicans endorsed George Cross for state senator and nominated J.O. Cramb for the legislature, E.W. Hinshaw for county attorney, E.P. Griffin for district court clerk, John Nider for commissioner and Dr. Pritchett for coroner.
