  • Leaving Will Be Hard

    Dan Carlson, Prairie Ponderings|Feb 23, 2022

    Change, even good chance, can be hard. That’s what Karen and I are learning as we prepare to leave Cheyenne County for our new home in Belle Fourche, SD. This reality has been driven home as good friends we’ve made here share the impact we’ve had in their lives over the years, often impact we may not have known about until it was shared. I arrived in Sidney in October of 2004 as I transitioned from a 25-year career in TV and radio to a new position as a writer for Cabela’s. Karen and the kid...

  • Scared? Who? Me!

    Mike Sunderland, Thoughts from a Grey-haired Point of View|Feb 23, 2022

    Warning! This is a true story of a Navy boot camp experience. The language has been toned down to protect the guilty. I stood looking Fear in the face.

That tower at the deep end of the pool – how high did they say it is? 50 feet? 50 infinite feet above 18 deadly feet of...

  • This Journey Not Traveled Alone

    Forrest Hershberger, View from the Handlebars|Feb 23, 2022

    My wife and I recently had dinner with a collection of people; most we knew, some more than others. There were the conversations like old friends meeting again, and of newcomers gently entering the conversation.. One common thread went through the room: each person has had to confront loss through death. Death is an unfortunate fact of life. Biblically, biologically, and just the random roll of the dice living on this planet -- we all will face it at some point, on our own and when someone...

  • Real Talk

    Feb 23, 2022

    Can we have some real talk here? There are many times in our lives that we feel like the world is against us. Our situations, circumstances, even people. Like we are completely alone and have nowhere to turn. Those feelings and circumstances are not specific to whom they apply, and no one is immune. Not even those who serve in ministry. In Fact, the great prince of preachers C.H. Spurgeon suffered from bouts of depression. He has famously once said “I have learned to kiss the wave that throws me up against the Rock of Ages.” Meaning, that eve...

[For if] they understood with their hearts and turned [from wicked ways], I would heal them.” Matthew 13:11-17.

  • Straight Talk From Steve

    Steve Erdman, District 47|Feb 23, 2022

    Whenever a bill in the Nebraska State Legislature receives no opposition testimony at its public hearing and the committee members all support the bill, it becomes eligible for the consent calendar. The Speaker of the Legislature is the keeper of the consent calendar. Once the Speaker of the Legislature decides to place a bill on the consent calendar, it gets only 15 minutes of debate on the floor of the Legislature. Today I would like to tell you about four bills of mine that I have requested...
