OPEN FOR BUSINESS Public input sought for comprehensive plan Tammy Partsch The News-Press ebraska CityвЂ™s community planners are asking for public input on what Nebraska CityвЂ™s future should look like. At a public town hall meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 8, Olsson Associates, dPlanit, and students from the University of N Nebraska-Lincoln College of Architecture presented statistical findings about Nebraska City. The group has spent the last few months collecting data regarding demographics, infrastructure, public services, natural resources, environmental issues, market and consumer patterns, economic development opportunities, historical and cultural resources, transporta- tion systems, and existing land use within the Nebraska City jurisdiction. All of that data will be complied with comments from local citizens about perceived opinions on Nebraska CityвЂ™s future growth. From that, a unified comprehensive plan will be presented to the city. вЂњUsually, communities redo their comprehensive plan every ten years or so,вЂќ said Dave Knopick, owner of dPlanit, a professional planning consulting company. вЂњThe trend now, however, is to set a document you can build on so you are not rewriting it all the time.

"Everybody's OK, right?" was the only question answered by an employee at the Nebraska City WalMart late Thursday night, just a few hours after receiving a bomb threat. "Yes," the employee said hurriedly, after directing all media inquiries to 1-800-WAL-MART. The alleged bomb threat, which was reported to police just before 7 p.m. on Thursday, caused the store to shut down for more than an hour while police and Wal-Mart staff searched the building. "There were no specifics given of any particular item we should be looking for вЂ“ just a blatant statement that there was a bomb in the building," said Sgt. Chris Bando of the Nebraska City Police Department. "Three managers and three officers searched the premises once, then some employees were allowed in to do a second search, and then the rest of the employees were allowed in to do a third search.

PHOTOS BY NIKKI CARLSON NEMAHA NRD MINUTES From the Nemaha Natural Resources District TECUMSEH вЂ“ Water was on the mind of many at the Nemaha Natural Resources DistrictвЂ™s regular meeting Thursday, October 9. Following a period this summer when some domestic wells in the Barada area of Richardson County failed, landowners there asked the NRD for help in determining the cause. They requested a moratorium be placed on approval of any further irrigation wells in the area to allow time to study possible impacts on domestic well supplies. However, with proposed changes to the NRDвЂ™s groundwater management area rules and regulations set to be acted upon in November, it was felt the revised rules and scoring system would effectively eliminate many high capacity wells in that area from approval. NRD staff will continue to work with landowners in that area to monitor water levels and assist with registration of domestic wells to help protect them from encroachment by high capacity wells. Last month the board tabled action on a motion to reconsider a previously denied well permit for Harlan Plager. After voting to take up discussion and action on that motion, the board narrowly defeated the original motion in a 9-8-1 vote. Much discussion and concern revolved around what kind of restrictions could be placed on approval of another permit, whether reconsideration of a permit should even be allowed, and the prevailing concerns from the Pawnee County Rural Water District about the proximity to he Team Jack Foundation would like to thank Big Apple News Radio of Nebraska City, Nebraska for participating in the 2nd Annual Team Jack Foundation Radiothon.

Madsen has been a Relay for Life member for 16 years and has had loved ones who've died of cancer. Volunteers Cheri Becerra Madsen and Joan Dutt, both of Nebraska City, showed students the difference between a nonsmoker's lungs compared to a smoker's lungs by first breathing through a straw normally and then plugging their noses while breathing through a straw. Joan Dutt, who is also a radiologic technologist at CHI Health St. Mary's hospital, said the peak ages of when children start smoking are between the ages of 11 and 12. That surprised many students. At the end of the handson event, students returned to classes with plastic bags full of information, coloring pages, stickers, pencils, snacks and more. Gorham said the Relay Recess at Hayward was the only one held in Otoe County. "It's an educational opportunity for kids to learn about preventative measures to lower your risk of cancer," she said. Graves thought the event was a hit with students. "I think the kids had a ball. I think the kids had fun," she said. "They were educated on different aspects on how to fight against cancer." their public water supply wells. In subsequent action on another permit for a well in Richardson County to be used to fill a pond, the board also denied approval of that permit. In other action, four bids to place rip rap on five watershed structures were awarded to B.A.B., Inc., from Adams. They submitted the low bid in each instance, and only two or three bids were received on each project. Work is scheduled to be completed yet this fall, and the NRD is contracting separately for the rip rap and hauling. Christy Haddan from Schulz and Associates accounting firm in Beatrice was on hand to review the DistrictвЂ™s FY2014 audit report. She once again reported that the DistrictвЂ™s financial standing was favorable and that no problems or issues were uncovered in their review. The board opted to delay action to approve the report, however, until next month to allow members time to study it in greater detail. A proposal from Beehive Industries to develop a database collection system to be used to track and record information about the watersheds and structures in the District was considered. The initial, total cost to set up the data and provide support, training, and updates was $7,000 with a subsequent annual maintenance fee of $3,600. Board approval was granted for the system, which does not include the cost of the hardware required for employees to use the system in the field. Several items in conjunction with the Duck Creek project were discussed and/or acted upon. First the board authorized the manager to proceed with incorporating dirt work for road improvements in with the bidding process for the dam itself. In addition some revisions were approved to the land rights settlement with the major landowner on the project. The change reduced the purchase area by about two acres but provided an additional seven acres for mitigation. Finally the board approved an agreement with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission that would have them provide $500,000 in costshare assistance toward the in-lake, fisheries related recreation facilities. With the recent death of NRD director, John Albrecht from Nebraska City, the board was required to make a decision on how to fill the vacancy. Since AlbrechtвЂ™s term was set to expire at the end of December anyway, their action was to declare the seat in Subdistrict 4 vacant and designate January 8, 2015, as the first date on which to consider applications to appoint someone to fill it. Because of changes in state law, the appointment will only be for a two-year term after which the seat will be up for election in 2016 for another two years. The next regular meeting of the Nemaha NRD board of directors will be Thursday, November 13, 2014, at the NRD headquarters in Tecumseh. Starting in November and extending through March, regular meetings will begin an hour earlier at 7:00 p.m. with committees meeting just prior to each regular meeting. In addition a public hearing will take place on November 13 at 5:00 p.m. to receive testimony on the proposed changes to the rules and regulations for groundwater quality management areas. port and generosity of your local radio station and amazing contributors which allows us to continue to have a national impact on the leading childhood cancer cause of death.

In 2012, for comparison, only about $17,500 was paid to fairgoers. About 90 claims were paid that year as a result of State Fair activity. Stenberg pointed out that the $53,000 paid to fairgoers in 2014 and the $52,000 paid in 2013 far exceed previous annual totals for all outreach events. Generally unclaimed property specialists staff a dozen or so events throughout the state each year. Total amounts paid as a result of all outreach events in recent years include the following amounts: 2008 вЂ“$24,637; 172 claims 2009 вЂ“ $26,797; 130 claims 2010 вЂ“ $9,750; 88 claims 2011- $31,113, 140 claims Stenberg said he plans to continue to promote the unclaimed property program and to look for innovative ways to help connect Nebraskans with property that is rightfully theirs. The TreasurerвЂ™s Office database includes more than $135 million in unclaimed property for 350,000 people, businesses, and organizations. So far in 2014, more than $8.3 million has been paid. That represents more than 14,200 claims paid. The unclaimed property staff вЂ™s final outreach event of the year will be Nov. 19-20 at the Gateway Ag Expo in Kearney. The Northeast Nebraska Farm and Equipment Show in Norfolk on Jan. 14-15 will kick off outreach events for 2015. Unclaimed property consists of cash and other financial assets that are considered lost or abandoned after an owner cannot be located for a specific period of time. The most common forms of unclaimed property are court deposits, dividends, dormant accounts, gift certificates, insurance payments, lost IRAs, matured CDs, rebates, refunds, stock and mutual funds, utility deposits, and wages. Nebraskans can search for unclaimed property at any time through the TreasurerвЂ™s Office website at www.treasurer.org or by calling 402-471-8497 or 877-572-9688 (toll free). The Unclaimed Property Division office at 809 P St. in Lincoln is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

I n 1913, the federal income tax started as four pages of instructions. Today, the tax code spans more than 70,000 pages. The income tax system in the United States has been called everything from a disaster to an abomination. According to a Tax Foundation report entitled, "Putting a Face on America's Tax Returns," it takes Americans up to 7 billion work hours each year to complete the paperwork required by the IRS. In addition, it costs individual and corporate taxpayers more than $165 billion a year, or about 13% of all federal income taxes collected, to comply with the tax code. If you talk to liberals they will tell you that the rich donвЂ™t pay their fair share and that the tax burden falls disproportionately on the poor and middle class but JASON COTE a flat tax, where every taxpayer pays the same percentage, or a consumption tax where you only pay a tax on the things that you buy. Both have advantages and disadvantages but either option would simplify things tremendously. It would end all the problems associated with modern day accounting and would make it less attractive for businesses to leave profits off shore in order to avoid As it stands now the U.S. tax code is full of special interest provisions and exemptions for political donors. Liberals say that the rich arenвЂ™t paying their fair share but the top 20% of Americans are paying 70% of the income taxes and the lowest 20% receive almost $23,000 in вЂњgovernment transfers.вЂќ the numbers donвЂ™t bear that out. Taxpayers earning less than $100,000 a year account for about 18% of all income taxes, while those earning more than $100,000 pay more than 80% of the taxes. Taxpayers earning $1 million or more a year make 11% of all income but pay 23% of all income taxes. Looking at it another way, the top 1% of income earners pay about 37% of all income taxes while the top 10% pay 70% and the bottom 90% pay only 30% of taxes. All this talk about how the rich don't pay their fair share is nonsense. But who is actually not paying their fair share? According to a report from the Congressional Budget Office the bottom 40% of households in America actually paid a negative 9% of income tax which resulted in them making over $18,000 from the top 40%. Half of the American citizens supporting the other half is not the way the system was intended to operate. In order to get the federal income tax passed by Congress, President Wilson promised that the tax rate on personal incomes would never exceed 3% of income, and that it would only be assessed on incomes over $10,000 a year, which is equivalent to about $250,000 today. I believe that the problem isnвЂ™t the amount of taxes paid by each group but the percentage that each group pays in taxes. That is why many have advocated for scrapping the whole system and replacing it with either taxes. Tax forms would be one page and would take only a few minutes. In addition, all of the IRS scandals of targeting of rival political groups would be over as would powerful peoplesвЂ™ ability to use it to hurt and destroy political enemies. Much of the personal information that the IRS collects is a terrible invasion of privacy and is completely unneeded. Speaking on Fox News recently, Senator Ted Cruz said, вЂњWe ought to abolish the IRS and instead move to a simple flat tax. It ought to be just a simple, one-page postcard.вЂќ As it stands now the U.S. tax code is full of special interest provisions and exemptions for political donors. Liberals say that the rich arenвЂ™t paying their fair share but the top 20% of Americans are paying 70% of the income taxes and the lowest 20% receive almost $23,000 in вЂњgovernment transfers.вЂќ This is crazy and it just goes to prove that the leftвЂ™s class warfare speech is simply a fairytale. The left has taught its followers that being rich is evil. They believe that all wealth is made off the backs of poor people who are left to pick up the scraps or starve on the street. They treat taxes as a weapon and tell companies and individuals that they must pay more and if they object, they are racist or accused of being unpatriotic. This is not how America is supposed to operate. The president calls this вЂњspreading the wealth around.вЂќ I call it tyranny. $%& ! ! " # '' ' ! !

As far as weather is concerned, we have little to brag about the other three seasons, but when October comes, the blazing trees, the pleasantly warm days and cool nights, the bounty of the harvestвЂ¦вЂ¦who could ask for more blessings than that? Most people say itвЂ™s their favorite time of the year. I have another reason for loving October and thatвЂ™s the wonderful folk tales that can be found in our lore. I absolutely love ghost stories. Those of you who have my book know I have spent years researching the stories of old houses whose occupants refuse to leave, even after death. Many Otoe Countians have come to me with tales of a soft footstep on the stairs or a shadow that darts away when you dare to look again, but most folks donвЂ™t want to make these stories public for fear of ridicule. I respect their privacy but I love the chill they provide in the telling. N SHIRLEY GILFERT I am familiar with at least three documented haunted houses in Otoe County. IвЂ™m sure there are many more. Since Halloween is almost upon us, it is time to share a spooky tale or two. Did you know that the best known house in Otoe County is haunted? It has been said that when tourists leave and the house is closed for the winter, that Caroline Morton, the beloved mistress of Arbor Lodge, once more takes command of her home. She has been heard walk- ing down the hall toward her bedroom at night and the imprint of her body can sometimes be seen on her bedspread where she has rested The house and gardens are kept as authentic as possible to the era in which Caroline Morton lived and sometimes she seems to provide the information needed when the restoration is done. In one such instance, new wall paper was to be replaced and old books appeared that provided wall paper designs of the right vintage, or another time, plans suddenly appeared for the koi pond that was in the planning stages of restoration. There has never been anything evil related to what is believed to be CarolineвЂ™s haunting. She simply wants to stick around and make sure her home is well cared for, but there have been incidents that have frightened guides who worked there. For example, one tour guide became quite agitated when she heard several raps on a closed door on the second floor. She came down the steps at a very brisk pace and refused to go up on the second floor again. Although several strange or out of place sounds occur occasionally, there has never been anything of a menacing nature and not so much as a shadow has been seen by the superintendent or his assistant. Once, a pair of visiting tourists reported they had seen two figures in oldfashioned clothes walking in the garden. The figures faded away when they approached. Perhaps SterlingвЂ™s spirit decided to spend some time at home and he and Caroline strolled in the garden, but that would have been an unusual occurrence when both were alive, as it was Caroline who saw that everything ran smoothly while Sterling was busy politicking. If Caroline MortonвЂ™s spirit does remain at Arbor Lodge, it is there to make sure things run as smoothly as they did when she lived. She has been determined to be a welcome ghost. participant stated that she would require economic terminology be changed and if the teacher didnвЂ™t teach the way she desired she would want recourse against the teacher. This is a perfect example of censorship and violation of academic freedom. I, hearing that little voice within me directing me to take a stand, challenged that participant. On October 23, 2008, Matthew Rothchild wrote: William Ayers, a professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, was invited to deliver the keynote speech at an education conference at theUNL on November 15, 2008. His address was billed as, вЂњWe Are Each OtherвЂ™s Keepers: Research to Change the WorldвЂќ. One lost soul stated, вЂњGive me a sniper rifle and a good firing position and I shall move Bill AyersвЂ™ gray matterвЂќ. Another wrote, вЂњI wonder what flag he wants on his coffinвЂќ. On October 17, Mario Scalora, associate professor of psychology wrote, вЂњbecause of вЂ�substantial security concernвЂ™вЂќ his speech was cancelledвЂќ вЂњThis is an embarrassment to the University of Nebraska and the state of Nebraska,вЂќ Governor Dave Heineman told the Lincoln Journal Star, вЂњBill Ayers is a well-known radical who should never have been invited to the Uni- versity of Nebraska.вЂќ Some faculty members of UNL and this writer sharply criticized this decision and statement. It is a вЂњchilling blow to academic freedom on our campus, вЂњsaid one, вЂњand there is a lot of frustration and anger from faculty, including some threats to leave UNL refused to participate in the censored study stating that the amendment prevented a study which should include the influence of humans on the climate. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has now completed their own study which includes human behaviors and has developed a climate change degree program. According to Susan Campbell BartolettiвЂ™s 2005 Copyright, вЂњHitler YouthвЂќ, Nazi Germany censored newspapers, radio broadcasts, movies, sermons and classroom lessons. She further stated that on May 10, 1933 Nazi Storm Troopers and Hitler youth carried flaming torches and set fire to banned books. The banned books included titles written by Jewish authors as well as authors considered вЂњliberalвЂќ by the Nazi Party. In conclusion, questions surface. Why are people intimidated by the free search for truth and the free expression of ideas for the common good? Why do they feel the need to censor? What are they hiding? GUEST COLUMNIST Academic freedom Alvin Guenther Special to the News-Press n September 23, 2014 the Lincoln Journal Star reported that hundreds of students, supported by the College Board that administers high school Advanced Placement courses, walked out of classrooms around suburban Denver in protest over a conservative-led school board proposal to focus censored history education on topics that promote citizenship, patriotism and respect for authority. The board does not want to вЂњencourage or condone civil disorder, social strike or disregard of the law.вЂќ It was hoped that the school boards proposal would provide a show of civil disobedience toward new educational standards. The College Board said that the social order must sometimes be disrupted for the common good, pointing to the Boston Tea Party, the American Revolution and the civil rights movement as examples. To my chagrin, but not unexpected, several Nebraska State Board of Education members are currently promoting similar censorship of the Nebraska history standards. Via phone calls to the State Board of Education and O State Department of Education, I have voiced my disapproval of censorship. During the week of August 18, 2014, I explained the Common Core Standards as a group of new standards established by educators across our nation that place heavy emphasis on the reading of informational and non-fiction writing. Academic freedom and critical thinking are a vital component of the Common Core. Academic freedom is to insure institutions of higher education are conducted for the common good. The common good depends upon the free search for truth and the free expression of ideas. To channel the thinking process through board policy which deprives the student the opportunity to pursue truth and free expression of ideas for the common good would constitute censorship and is a violation of academic freedom. The College Board warned that any course that is censored shall not use the Advanced Placement designation. I once had the opportunity to be associated with the Nebraska State Department of EducationвЂ™s rewriting of the state standards for social studies. I wished to increase the requirement of macro and micro economics.

Dear Dave, My husband and I recently inherited my parentsвЂ™ home. ItвЂ™s in a small, rural town with little industry, and weвЂ™ve been told that the place would be worth $85,000 if itвЂ™s cleaned up, compared to $75,000 as is. Should we spend about $10,000 to really clean it up, replace a few things and make it presentable to sell it faster? вЂ“ Terri Dear Terri, ItвЂ™s really up to you guys, because both options вЂ” whether youвЂ™re sitting on the house or rehabbing it вЂ” are going to take time and emotional energy. From a real estate personвЂ™s perspective, houses always sell better when theyвЂ™re shined up and looking nice. When a prospective buyer walks in and sees and smells new carpet and fresh paint, they donвЂ™t have strain their imaginations looking past everything.

DAVE RAMSEY potential buyers to look past things, it usually ends up costing you money. In most cases, if you spend $10,000 you gain more than what you put into the house. Honestly, I think one of the numbers youвЂ™ve given me is wrong вЂ” either the $85,000, the $75,000 or the $10,000 you think it will take to fix up the place. In other words, if you spend $10,000 on a project like this, youвЂ™ll usually gain $20,000 when youвЂ™re talking about stuff like a thorough cleaning, new carpet and flooring, fresh paint and basics like that. My guess is if the place is worth $85,000 fixed up, itвЂ™ll probably bring about $65,000 as is. If itвЂ™s me, IвЂ™m going to clean the place and fix it up. IвЂ™ve done hundreds, if not thousands, of these kinds of deals, and I canвЂ™t stand to try and sell something thatвЂ™s dumpy, grungy and out of shape. вЂ” Dave Where does this money go? ! * ( $ !# ( % " % ! * # * &#! +( ( )" !*- $ %+ *+( ) (! !

LetвЂ™s review: The work week begins on a Monday, which we all hate but it gives the day a certain status. Tuesdays are Election Days, which makes Tuesday a vital cog in our Democratic machinery. Thursdays are time sheet days, which is of immense importance to those among us who enjoy getting paid. Fridays are the actual paydays вЂ“ and they also have a restaurant named after them. Saturdays are typically filled with fun and frolic. Sundays are restful and given to spiritual contemplation. But Wednesdays are the weekвЂ™s weak link. Its only claim to acknowledgement is that itвЂ™s a day we get over the "hump." ThatвЂ™s all it has to beat its chest about вЂ“ that itвЂ™s a day to relish because itвЂ™s leading to other, better days. Did you ever wonder why Wednesdays lack cachet? Well, hereвЂ™s the answer: ItвЂ™s because Wednesdays are sneaky. What other day of the week tries to sneak a silent letter by an unsuspecting public? For instance, whenвЂ™s the last time you had an important appointment on a Thurdsday? Never, thatвЂ™s when. No, the other days of the week are spelled and Frank Mulligan can be pronounced in a phonet- reached at ic manner promoting [email protected] D Advertising Really Makes Cents! Save Time & Money!

Dear Dave, If you have a mortgage that will be paid off in the next two or three years, should you pay extra toward the house or invest that money over and above the 15 percent you recommend putting toward retirement? вЂ“ Walt pay down a house and sell it somewhere down the road. The money comes back. You didnвЂ™t lose it. Honestly, youвЂ™re not doing a bad thing by putting it into retirement either. But you donвЂ™t know exactly what will happen over the next several years of your life or the life of your investments. You might think you know. You might even have a plan. But the truth is even the best plans donвЂ™t always work out the way we want. And if that happens, it sure would be neat to own your home outright! вЂ” Dave trust and feelings of warmth and respect. So whatвЂ™s up with Wednesday and that wily "d?" Clearly, its presence is an indictment of the whole "silent letter" phenomenon. Why are these letters silent? What are they trying to hide? A persuasive argument could be ventured that silent letters are a threat to our way of life. All right, maybe not a persuasive argument вЂ“ but an argument, certainly. WhatвЂ™s the point of a silent letter? Their entire message seems to be, "Hey, look at me. IвЂ™m not here." Disillusionment inevitably accompanies a childвЂ™s first introduction to the silent letter. The child, quite correctly, wants to know why the silent letter exists. Is it there just to make words more difficult to spell? They seek an explanation, a confirmation that the world indeed makes sense. But what are they told? Hush up, little Johnny or Susie (or whatever their name is). YouвЂ™re not allowed to question the silent letter. You must simply accept it. Is it any wonder that standardized test scores are down? I think not. ItвЂ™s time we end the duplicitous sway of the silent letter. Knowledge is way too important.

He said the information that was gathered and then presented to the public gives Nebraska City residents a clear idea of what Nebraska City looks like right now. вЂњThis is a canvas; we are painting the picture of Nebraska City,вЂќ Johnson said. Knopick said the next step in developing a comprehensive plan is to figure out where Nebraska City wants to go in the future. вЂњItвЂ™s like asking what you want to be when you grow up,вЂќ he said. вЂњThere is factual data about a town that comes from the census and economic information, and then there is the perception of a town вЂ“ the public opinion. We canвЂ™t always get that last part from data, so thatвЂ™s why we are asking individual citizens what they think is important. Then we can merge those.вЂќ Those who attended the open house on October 8 were asked to fill out a Local citizens attended an open house on Wednesday, October 8, to learn about Nebraska CityвЂ™s comprehensive plan. Those unable to attend are invited to voice their opinions on the communityвЂ™s future online at nebraskacityplan.mindmixer.com. PHOTO BY TAMMY PARTSCH comment sheet about Nebraska City. Questions included: Why do you choose to live here/do business here; What are the communityвЂ™s strengths and weaknesses; What do you want to see improve or change; What are the most important items or challenges facing Nebraska City; and When you think about Nebraska City in the future, what does it look like? Those questions are also currently available online at nebraskacityp l a n . m i n d m i x e r. c o m . Knopick is hoping residents will take time in the next few weeks to go online and answer the survey questions. вЂњWe want to create a conversation about Nebraska City,вЂќ Knopick said. вЂњIf you go online, you will be asked to reg- ister your name and email address so we can keep you informed of new meetings and opportunities to voice opinions. We want to visit with residents and ask what they want to see in Nebraska City.вЂќ Knopick said the online comment site will be operational for a few more weeks. вЂњOnce we know the vision the public wants, we can put together a strategy on how to get there,вЂќ he said. вЂњThis is not just for the cityвЂ™s use, either. Other groups and businesses can utilize the plan as well.вЂќ The data presented at the open house on October 8 was gathered and organized by students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. They focused on four themes: culture, ecology, land use, and mobility. Kim Wilson, the Dean of the College of Architecture at UNL, said the students involved are undergraduate and graduate students in Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The studio class, called Community Planning and Design, has 12 students enrolled this fall. вЂњWe have done this process for several other Nebraska communities, including Crete, Broken Bow, Ord, and Chadron,вЂќ Wilson said. вЂњThe students learn what city planning is all about.вЂќ One aspect of the project was a walkability study. The students traversed nearly every street in Nebraska City and ranked them based on the availability of sidewalks, quality of pavement, ease of street crossing, and even took into account the aesthetics of a tree canopy. Their findings showed that Nebras- ka City has 65 miles of road, with each mile having the capacity for two corresponding miles of sidewalks. Of the potential 130 miles of sidewalk in Nebraska City, there are only 41 actual miles of sidewalk, which is 31%. The planners may incorporate the addition of sidewalks into the comprehensive plan if the public opinion survey supports it as well. Fourth-year Landscape Architect student Nanette Heimes of Hartington, Nebraska, said she was impressed with Nebraska City and hopes to someday do for her hometown what she did for Nebraska City. вЂњNebraska City has lots of great spaces, lots of green spaces,вЂќ she said. вЂњThere are so many trees and culture and history here вЂ“ we want to bring all that to downtown and make it vibrant.вЂќ After the public input site is closed, the students and professional planners will work together on a public meeting tentative scheduled for December 16. That meeting will unveil detailed site and building designs based on the feedback received now. The actual plan will be developed in early 2015; the city could adopt the new comprehensive plan in May of 2015.

Lourdes would lead by a lot more than that by halftime on the way to a 58-34 win. Tylor Sturm had a 34-yard first quarter run to put the Knights on the scoreboard. He also had a two-point run after that touchdown. And Tom Gress rushed in from fouryards out to answer a long scoring pass by Mead and put the Knights up 14-6 going to the second quarter. Four touchdowns and two-point conversions in the second quarter put the Knight lead at 46-14 at half. Gress connected with Noah Vasa on a 45yard pass to start the second quarter scoring for Lourdes. Sturm rushed in from nine yards out. Gress had a one-yard run and connected on a 19-yard scoring pass to Kyle Francois. Two-point plays were by Sturm on three runs and Ethan Martinosky Oct. 11 Results Wisconsin 38, Illinois 28 Minnesota 24, Northwestern 17 Iowa 45, Indiana 29 Michigan State 45, Purdue 31 Michigan 18, Penn State 13 also on a run play. Lourdes added to its lead after half as Martinosky rushed into the end zone from four yards out and Francois covered a blocked Mead punt in the end zone for a touchdown. Down 44 points entering the fourth quarter, Mead posted three touchdowns before time ran out. Turning to the game stats, Lourdes rushed for 235 and passed for 114 on four completions. Mead had 94 yards rushing on 23 attempts and was 11-of-23 passing for 150 yards. Individual leaders for Lourdes included Sturm, 101 rush yards on 14 carries. Vasa had 80 yards receiving. Noah Goodman and Colton Davis both blocked kicks for the Knights. The Lourdes team has won four straight games after having lost their first two contests to open the season. Two games remain on the schedule. Lourdes will play at Cedar Bluffs on Friday and close out the regular season schedule with a Thursday, Oct. 23 home <None>game against East Butler. Oct. 18 Games Purdue at Minnesota Iowa at Maryland Rutgers at Ohio State Michigan State at Indiana Nebraska at Northwestern A blocked field goal turned out to be a key play for the Waverly football team in its 38-13 homecoming victory over Nebraska City on Friday night. Waverly got on the scoreboard early thanks to a four-play and 60yard drive capped by a 20-yard Jon Murray run. Nebraska City was forced to punt on its first possession, but did get a drive going on its second possession. A key play was Noah KasbohmвЂ™s rush for a first down on a fourth down call. He also connected with Stephen Conner on a 12-yard pass, but the drive stalled at the Waverly 30-yard line and the Pioneers were forced to give up possession on downs. Some missed tackles gave Murray the space he needed to race 37 yards for the VikesвЂ™ second touchdown of the game as Waverly took a 14-0 lead. A strange penalty call stopped the PioneersвЂ™ next drive as Nebraska City was flagged for an illegal forward hand off. The ball was marched back 15 yards on the infraction and the Pioneers were forced to punt. ThatвЂ™s when the Waverly special teams came up big as the home team blocked the Pioneer punt and covered it in the end zone to take a 21-0 lead. Kasbohm found Jose Garcia on a 19-yard pass and Joe Seyler on a first-down toss, but eventually faced a 3rd-and-long, and punted. A sack by the defensive combination of Chris Monaghan and Logan Riege forced Waverly to punt on its next possession. Kasbohm passed to Seyler for a first down, but Nebraska City stalled and punted, thus setting up Waverly for its fourth score of the game. The Vikes drove 75 yards and Murray scored his third touchdown on an 11-yard run. See PIONEERS, Page B2 Knight VB rally falls short Kirt Manion [email protected] The Lourdes volleyball team looked to be in position to add to its comeback legacy on Thursday, but Johnson-Brock ended up shutting the door to that victory with a fourset win by scores of 2519, 25-19, 24-26, and 2519. After seeming to be a bit off of its game in the first and second sets, the Knight team rallied from an 8-3 deficit early in the third set, then withstood some adversity to close out the set and keep hopes alive. Lourdes appeared to have won the set 25-23, but the ruling of a Knight point was over turned and a replay order was issued. Johnson-Brock tied the set at 24-24, but Lourdes got the points it needed to win. Coach Michelle Kreifels said she always talks to her team about enduring such adversity. вЂњWe always preach that you canвЂ™t let the officials affect the game,вЂќ said Coach Kreifels. вЂњThey did a good job of staying committed to our game plan.вЂќ The fourth set saw Lourdes own the early momentum with a 7-3 lead. The score stood tied at 16-16 before JohnsonBrock forged a 23-18 lead on the way to a 25-19 final. In looking back at the entire match, Coach Kreifels said most of the Knight difficulties came down to struggles with serve receive. вЂњWe tried to make some adjustments. We talked about the basics,вЂќ said Coach Kreifels. вЂњIt just wasnвЂ™t working well for us. вЂњWe just couldnвЂ™t get in system enough to use all of our three hitters.вЂќ Stat leaders for Lourdes were Karley Kreifels, 12 kills, 12 set assists and four service aces on 20of-20 serving.

PIONEERS From Page B1 A Conner kick return put Nebraska City in position for its first scoring march. Kasbohm converted a 2nd-and-3 with a 12-yard run, the PioneersвЂ™ benefited from a roughing the passer penalty, and Riege rushed the ball to the Vike one-yard line with an 18-yard run. Kasbohm capped the scoring drive with a short run and Clayton Patton added the kick. The score stood at 28-7 with 1:59 to go until half. Nebraska CityвЂ™s defense stood tall on the final possession of the first half as Waverly ran out of time and was unable to add to its lead. Rique Aldana nearly had an interception on that late Waverly march, but his catch was wiped out on a defensive penalty. After forcing Waverly to punt on its first possession of the second half, Nebraska City got a pair of pass connections from Kasbohm to Garcia for a total of 33 yards. In spite of those throws, the team was forced to punt. And Waverly launched a scoring drive covering 75 yards. Ben Warner had the final play of the march, a 24-yard pass reception. Nebraska City got another good return from Conner and Kasbohm passed for 31 yards to Austin Betts to put the Pioneers in position to answer, but Nebraska City was forced to turn it over on downs. The score stood at 35-7 at the At left are the 2014 Wildwood Golf Champions Marve Penning and Fr. Mike Ventre. end of three quarters. Waverly had a 28-yard field goal and Nebraska City scored on a late drive to cap the scoring. Riege had the scoring play for the Pioneers on a five-yard run that made the score 38-13 with 2:26 to go in the game. Waverly would then run out the fourth quarter clock. With the loss, Nebraska CityвЂ™s record now stands at 1-6 with two games to play. Nebraska City will host games on Oct. 17 and Oct. 24 against Plattsmouth and Platteview. The Plattsmouth game is also Nebraska CityвЂ™s homecoming contest. Looking back at the Waverly contest, Coach B.T. Kracl said his team faced some adversity in adjusting to some unexpected looks from the Vike defense. вЂњOur kids were confused and it caused us way to many problems,вЂќ said Kracl. вЂњI told the kids here at the end, it doesnвЂ™t matter what they run, the play is the same.вЂќ Defensively, Coach Kracl said his team didnвЂ™t come out as sharp as they needed to be, thus leading to some success for the Vikes. Credit to Waverly for making the plays, but Coach Kracl said his teamвЂ™s work in practice has indicated that they are capable of better than what the final results might have shown. вЂњThese are discipline and execution issues that we work on and work on and its seems that we can do right in practice, but then we show up and we donвЂ™t do them right, so itвЂ™s a little frustrating,вЂќ said Kracl. Despite those frustrations, Coach Kracl said his team should be ready to take advantage of their opportunities in the final two games of the schedule. вЂњWeвЂ™ve still got two games to play,вЂќ said Kracl. вЂњWe are going to show up. I am going to show up and I am going to compete. And I will expect they will do the same.вЂќ Getting better requires more from both player and coach. Kracl said the coaches need to continue to work in practice to correct errors and that the players must self critique to find their areas where improvement is needed. If motivation is needed for that process, the Pioneers wonвЂ™t lack for it as the team has the opportunity to win out at home and celebrate homecoming with a victory. вЂњHomecoming is no fun if you donвЂ™t get a win on the football fieldвЂ” plus itвЂ™s Plattsmouth,вЂќ Kracl said of next weekвЂ™s game. вЂњI am looking forward to that challenge and I hope the kids are too. вЂњI really think our kids will respond and come out and play hard. That is one thing our kids did tonight is they kept working.вЂќ The highlight of that hard work looked to be the PioneersвЂ™ return game as Garcia and Conner both had good returns. вЂњWeвЂ™ve got some dynamic kids back there returning the ball and our guys up front gave them a few blocks. We were one or two blocks away from springing a couple of them.вЂќ Hamburg, Farragut facility reports wonвЂ™t arrive before deadline Sandy Parmenter www.ncnewspress.com Hamburg and Farragut School District Advisory Committees received news that the facility reports from the architectural team would not arrive prior to their deadline to prepare plans. With the main focus of the committees being to choose which buildings should be open, closed, or modified for both districts, and in case of a reorganization, the groups had hoped to lean heavily on reports to be received from Facilities Cost Management, which were to include advice of best buildings to use, close, repair, and estimated costs of those actions, including suggestions for financing and effects on the districts. Instead of reviewing those reports, Superintendents Terry Kenealy and Tom Hinrichs went through a list of about 30 questions sent to them by members of the advisory committees, answering what they could. They reiterated that the Department of Education and SBRC were expecting major changes, not just a tightening of belts. In response to numerous "what if" questions, the best they could usually say was "it depends"вЂ¦on whether consolidation happens, on what district you get put in if the districts are dissolved, on which buildings are kept open, on what the SBRC does, etc. Kenealy and Hinrichs told the group that they had met with other Fremont County Superintendents and even the Shenandoah Superintendent in the last week to look into further sharing or 28E agreement options, as well as thoughts about the future. Both men said that the other districts were interested in keeping lines of communication open, but none of the districts were ready to jump into any kind of action or new configuration immediately. Conversation turned to whether a consolidation was the best thing for the two districts, with proponents for and against arguing their cases. Those against still argued that Hamburg's budget issues were so small compared to Farragut's that they would be foolish to take on A child on a bus t was pouring rain as the 8-year-old moved uncertainly toward the back of the bus. He and his mom had boarded partway into this hourlong trip, and there werenвЂ™t many seats left. вЂњGrab that one!вЂќ she said, pointing to the seat next to me near the back of the bus. He hesitated. вЂњJust sit! You sit there and IвЂ™ll sit here!вЂќ she said and settled into the seat across the aisle. She seemed slightly annoyed with him and I could tell he didnвЂ™t want to annoy her more. In the seat beside me, he shrugged his way out of his backpack, which seemed much too large for his narrow shoulders. Then he looked quickly over at me and away again. вЂњHi!вЂќ I whispered, inclining my head slightly toward him. вЂњHi,вЂќ he whispered back. Then I turned back to what I had been doing before the pair boarded, namely toting up a column of figures to see if I could afford new letterhead. вЂњAre you a Math teacher?вЂќ he asked, studying my paper. вЂњNo, no,вЂќ I smiled. вЂњIвЂ™m just somebody trying to remember where the decimal point goes!вЂќ вЂњI think it goes rightвЂ¦. THERE,вЂќ he said, pointing to my bottom line. I didnвЂ™t want him to feel he had to make small talk, so once I got done with my calculations; I tucked the paper into my own backpack and pulled out the column I was I SAVE TIME & MONEY When You Advertise with One of Our Statewide Programs!

Because if, having let something вЂ�coolвЂ™ in this way, you then come back to it and find that even after reading several of its beginning sentences you have no clue where you were go- ing with it, you have to begin again.

Those for the consolidation still argued that the only way anybody else would take on either school was upon dissolution, when debt, building, and staff issues would no longer be an issue, and that their best hope was to combine to have more to offer in negotiations with further future partners. Kenealy and Hinrichs pointed out that the committees couldn't predict the future and needed to come up with plans that most of them could buy into, and that included looking at all options. Open enrollments out came up frequently as an ongoing worry, and as a reason both for and against consolidation, but Kenealy told the committees that no matter what the choice, they would most likely continue to be an issue. "Open enrollment was created to help foster competition between schools," said Kenealy, "but 90 percent of applications to open enroll out are about the convenience of the family. вЂњWhere the parents work, COMICS CROSSWORD Los Angeles Times Daily Crossword Puzzle ANIMAL CRACKERS Edited by Rich Norris and Joyce Nichols Lewis ACROSS 1 Westminster landmark 6 Literary captain who says вЂњIвЂ™d strike the sun if it insulted meвЂќ 10 Natural bandage 14 Witch 15 Decide, as a judge 16 Freight train hopper 17 Stolen pastries in вЂњAlice in WonderlandвЂќ 18 Access using force 20 Say with certainty 21 вЂњGet off the stage!вЂќ 22 Without any slack 23 Old-time fountain employee 25 Right-angle bend 26 Amigo 27 TheyвЂ™re earned by completing college courses 31 Shade 34 __ bear 37 BuffaloвЂ™s lake 38 1954 Oscarwinning Brando film, or where either half of 18-, 23-, 51- and 61Across can literally be found 42 Gyro bread 43 Staircase pillar 44 Ultimate degree 45 Many a rush-hour rider 48 Drink often iced 50 Justice Dept. division 51 Like unabridged print dictionaries 56 Less biased 59 Wall-climbing plant 60 Bump off 61 Being attacked 63 Sudden power increase 64 Observes 65 Tablet operator 66 In base eight 67 Police crisis unit acronym BOUND & GAGGED BREWSTER ROCKIT 68 One of the deadly sins 69 Kick off 31 Beer flavoring 32 Curriculum part 33 James of jazz 35 Path to the pins 36 Consumed 39 Ergonomic keyboard feature 40 Second attempt 41 Hurried away 46 Bucks and does 47 Tongue-lashing 49 Kidnap 51 Adds to the staff 52 Stave off 53 Vital blood line 54 GrouchoвЂ™s smoke 55 Prepared to be knighted 56 Make a scene 57 Once again 58 Creative spark 62 Pocatello sch. 63 Sea captainвЂ™s вЂњHelp!вЂќ DOWN 1 Attend to the duties of 2 вЂњWell done!вЂќ 3 Yawning in class, say 4 Catch in a sting 5 вЂњCertainly!вЂќ 6 Ann __, Michigan 7 вЂњImpresarioвЂќ ANSWERTO TO PREVIOUS PREVIOUS PUZZLE: ANSWER PUZZLE: memoirist Sol 8 Stein filler 9 Car thatвЂ™s ready for the scrap heap 10 Side of a road 11 Egyptian Christian 12 AdamвЂ™s second son 13 More than lean 19 Leafy green 21 Later on the page 24 Joke 27 Group of workers 28 Appliance with a water reservoir 29 Shade 30 Late-night host 10/11/14 [email protected] Meyers 10/14/14 [email protected] By Jacob Stulberg В©2014 Tribune Content Agency, LLC 10/14/14 ! DICK TRACY ASK AMY Can you ask for leftovers? DEAR AMY: Recently I hosted a holiday dinner for 12 people. After all the leftovers were wrapped and put away, one of the guests approached me and asked if she could have some of the leftovers for her dog. I was mortified, and the only response I was able to utter was, вЂњSure.вЂќ I was taught that you never ask for leftovers unless the host offers them. I am mad at myself for not saying anything, but what could I have said? With more holidays coming up, IвЂ™m sure people would like to know how to handle this sort of thing. вЂ” Tongue-Tied Hostess DEAR HOSTESS: HowвЂ™s this for an answer: вЂњCan you take our holiday leftovers home for your dog? Um, no.вЂќ Being a gracious hostess does not mean that you are required to provide leftovers for your guests to take home for their own consumption вЂ” or their petsвЂ™. Anyone can ask for anything from you, but a request doesnвЂ™t compel you to comply. GASOLINE ALLEY THE MIDDLETONS Amy Dickinson is a Tribune Media Services national columnist DEAR AMY: For once, I totally disagree with your advice. Your answer to the grandmother signing her letter вЂњVery DisappointedвЂќ was way off base. To me, a teenager who has a tantrum is crying out for help. This girl has lived her whole life with aloof (вЂњit is what it isвЂќ) parents who donвЂ™t get along (the grandmother referred to вЂњconflictsвЂќ). With her grandmother (and you) responding to her behavior as вЂњunacceptableвЂќ and вЂњinappropriate,вЂќ itвЂ™s no wonder she has tantrums. вЂ” Reader DEAR READER: Flipping out in a hospital room at your elderly grandfatherвЂ™s bedside is вЂњunacceptableвЂќ and вЂњinappropriate,вЂќ though I completely agree that all of the adults should look for reasons behind the behavior and do everything possible to help.
