Heritage Highway Announces Photography Contest

The Heritage Highway Association is inviting amateur photographers to submit photos in the 2014-15 Heritage Highway photography contest.

Nebraska's Heritage Highway is a 238-mile stretch of Nebraska Highway 136 extending from historic Brownville along the banks of the Missouri River westward to Edison. This stretch of Highway 136 cuts across a section of Nebraska where the historical significance is undeniable. Attractions found along the byway are sure to set the stage for a variety of magnificent photos.

Photographs of community celebrations and events will also be accepted, and must have been taken since the designation of the Heritage Highway

Scenic Byway in October, 1999. The top four entries will receive one of the several vacation packages that have been assembled to include lodging, dining and attractions in the towns of Red Cloud, Fairbury, Pawnee City and Tecumseh.

One Mans Journey Proves The U.s. Is A Beautiful Country

Photo caption: Kenyon Eastin has served his country while in the Navy and he realized that he has never really had a chance to see the country he loved so much. This Utah native flew to New Jersey and on March 12 started a walk across the United States so that he would have an opportunity to really see what this country had to offer. Photo by Sandy Zabokrtsky/Fairbury Journal News

For one man from Utah the old saying join the Navy and see the world, held a certain appeal. He joined the Navy and saw some of the world but at 41 he realized that he hadnt really seen the most important part of the world, the United States. He started in March of this year to remedy that situation.

Community Action of Nebraska Launches Statewide Survey

Community Action of Nebraska will be mailing 10,000 surveys to residents all across Nebraska. The survey aims to discover the most pressing challenges Nebraskans face so that the Community Action agencies across the state will be better equipped to address those challenges. This survey is different from the Census survey. Those selected for the survey were chosen at random from among the residents of Nebraska and are encouraged to complete and return the survey as soon as possible. Each persons responses are important because they represent other households similar to their own who will not receive a copy of the survey.
