Are you prepared? September is National Preparedness

Month. In light of the weather events the last few years, we're

hoping all Nebraska families have made disaster kits and made

shelter and escape plans. This IS Nebraska and you know how

fast the weather can change!

Home Nebraska

Did you know every dollar in agricultural exports generates

$1.28 in economic activities such as transportation, financing,

warehousing, and production? Nebraska's $6.58 billion in

agricultural exports in 2016 translated into $8 billion in additional

economic activity. Nebraska had 47,400 farms and ranches

during 2017; the average operation consisted of 954 acres.

Friday, 8-30-2018, The Otoe Union:

"A NARROW ESCAPE: Earl Finigan had what came near being

a serious accident, Monday, while getting his oil tank to the car

filled at Bassett's garage. He struck a match about six feet away

resulting in an explosion of the gasoline in the tank. By the prompt

action of Henry Meyer with a fire extinguisher, the fire was put

out. The seats and cushions were burned up entirely and Earl

had a scare that he says will last hime a life time."
