From The Office of Senator Russ Karpisek

Priority bills filled the agenda this week and my colleagues and I worked through some contentious issues. My personal priority bill, LB1067, was hotly debated on General File. LB1067 would give local governing authorities the option to reduce the time between Keno games in order to increase Keno revenue to their communities. Unfortunately, some senators saw this as expanded gambling, and LB1067 didn't quite get the 25 votes needed to advance to second round debate.

Alzheimer's Caregivers Support Group To Meet

The Alzheimer's Caregivers Support Group will meet on Monday, March 19, at 6 p.m. in the Solarium Conference Room at Jefferson Community Health Center.

The program will be a DVD, "Caregivers," about caring for people in different stages of Alzheimer's Disease. We will be watching Part 3. The program is designed so segments can be watched individually.

A support group is a gathering of people with common problems, needs and interests which allows them to share their feelings, thoughts and experiences in a combined effort to survive the shared problems. It may include family members, caregivers, friends and other individuals interested in sharing information and giving and receiving support.

Those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease themselves are also welcome to attend the meetings.

Looking Back

120 Years Ago 1892

The Fairbury Gazette

W. H. Ferris was publishing the Rustler, Harbine's newspaper.

Samples of tobacco seed were sent to local farmers from Washington D.C. to try out. (Same fate as the silk industry 10 years later).

An institute to cure the liquor and tobacco habits was started at Steele City, using bichloride of gold. One patient reported cured from Washington, Kan.

A fire destroyed L.J. Nutzman's Fairbury cigar factory.

***********

110 Years Ago 1902

The Fairbury Gazette

Kerosene at 9 cents a gallon was considered a "wonderful value" here.
