I Can’t Take My Husband Anywhere

Shortly after Michael and I began dating I discovered that he has friends all over the place. It is rare that we can go anywhere where someone doesn’t recognize him and stop to chat. I’ll never forget the day we went to the Nebraska State Fair and we couldn’t walk 100 yards without someone stopping him and chatting. I started to get mad and eventually walked away so I could actually see the fair before closing time.
So I shouldn’t have been surprised when Michael and I took a little vacation all the way to the Bahamas last week and the first person we ran into is a friend of Michael’s.
We had arrived at our hotel in the Bahamas and were collecting our bags when a doorman walked over to Michael and said, “Do I know you?”

Letter To The Editor

Editor:
I am sending this in regard to a situation that has taken place within the past few weeks that just chapped my backside. 
I have placed a few political signs on a few properties of which I own, those for support of Mrs. Laura Ebke for State Legislature. One afternoon I received a phone call from an individual who stated that he witnessed someone walk up on my property and take the sign and get into a vehicle and go a block away and place a sign in a yard for Hardenburger who is Laura Ebke’s opponent. 
While spending time with this gentleman who witnessed this action another person drove up and told me that they saw the same situation take place at another property I have up the street, the same culprit taking a sign from my property and placing a Hardenburger sign in another yard. Really?

I’m Happy People Want To Read The Journal-News But...

 There is the making of a great novel in here somewhere.
 A corporation manufactures a sought after product that people regularly clamor to get. But somewhere between delivery and payment, the product disappears without a trace. There are no suspects. No clues. No witnesses.
 What’s happened? Were international secrets stolen? A large stock swindle on Wall Street? Maybe an arms cartel absconded with the latest military technology.
   Nope. None of these.
 Copies of the Fairbury Journal-News are regularly being stolen without payment. That’s right....the local newspaper, the weekly wipe, small-town news, the rant & rag. This newspaper.

U.S. Chamber Of Commerce Rightfully Supports Keystone XL

It’s difficult to understand why people, most especially politicians, let a lack of common sense get in the way of a good thing.
 During the final leg of a tour of the proposed route of the Keystone XL Pipeline on Friday, members of the United states Chamber of Commerce rightfully expressed their frustration at a lack of movement on the project. Matt Koch, vice-president for the U.S. Chamber said it all boils down to this Fall’s election.
 He said that everyone wants to be perceived as being on the “winning side” when a final ruling is issued. No one wants to put their jobs at risk.
 Now isn’t that a sad state of affairs?

State water law history shifts toward local regulation

Having enough water is an increasingly important issue for Nebraska farmers and city dwellers alike, but regulating water use is not something new for state policymakers.Nebraska has a long history of water law, and with the complex interplay of water rights, recent droughts and continued legal pressure from Kansas over the Republican River, state water laws have gone through many changes, with an increased emphasis on local control of water management.
