Embracing God's Purpose: A Piano Concert With Mary Grace

You won't want to miss inspirational pianist Mary Grace in concert on Friday, June 24, at 7:00 P.M. at the Fairbury High School Fine Arts Center.

Mary Grace was born with the absence of her right forearm and her right leg is 8" shorter than her left leg. But her handicap didn't stop her from learning piano, graduating from college and sharing Christ with others.

With a fluid manual dexterity expected from pianists with two hands, she conquers scales, chords and arpeggios with emotion and interpretative flair.

You'll be inspired by her awesome music and testimony as she shares the unconditional love and acceptance she found in the Lord.

A love offering will be taken for the ministries she's supporting in the Philippines and other countries: Placing ministers to work, sending students to school, and helping to alleviate the suffering of the poor and give comfort to the needy.

NDA Quarantines Several Horse Farms Due to Potential Contact With Equine Herpesvirus

LINCOLN - State Veterinarian Dr. Dennis Hughes has placed five horse premises under quarantine after several cases of Equine Herpesvirus (EHV-1) have been confirmed across the nation.

"The horse premises that are quarantined in Nebraska may have come into contact with infected horses during the National Cutting Horse Association's Western National Championships in Ogden, Utah," said Dr. Hughes. "We are acting quickly to take appropriate measures to protect our horse industry. Our staff is working with the quarantined horse premise owners to monitor for signs associated with the disease."
