  • Now That's A Footprint!

    Mike Sunderland, Thoughts from a Grey-Haired Point of View|Apr 27, 2022

    I came across some stats the other day that, if remotely accurate, are astounding, shocking and demand action. Fasten your seatbelt and prepare for a jolt. According to this info it takes 21 to 35 days for a Russian oil tanker to get to a US port to be offloaded. It takes between 35 to 60 days for a tanker from the Middle East to make the same trip. It takes about 10 hours to load a tanker and up to 24 hours to unload if it has to wait in port, and to get to an unloading dock can take up to 3...

  • Straight Talk From Steve

    Steve Erdman, 47th District|Apr 27, 2022

    Last week the 107th Legislature came to an end. This year was the shorter 60-day session. For the past four years I have served on the Legislature’s Appropriations Committee; however, this year proved to be the most difficult year so far. What made this year so difficult was that the Appropriations Committee had to appropriate $1.04 billion of federal funds from the American Recue Plan Act (ARPA). In previous years the number of bills assigned to the Appropriations Committee never surpassed 5...

  • Proof of 'Community'

    Forrest Hershberger, View from the Handlebars|Apr 27, 2022

    I’ve heard on many occasions that tragedy proves the value of your friendships, relationships. A little more than 23 years ago an entire community had to quickly define itself when Columbine High School took its place among schools that had experienced a bloody rampage and loss of life. As the headlines unfolded, there were countless tears and hugs of support from friends and likely from people who felt the pain and offered their support to those directly connected with the incident. They didn’t...

  • How To Be a Good Money Manager in Retirement

    Apr 27, 2022

    If you reach retirement with a significant amount of assets, you’ve done a great job of saving and investing. But now comes another challenge – making that money last. You might think that this task, as important as it is, won’t be as hard as accumulating the money in the first place. Yet, a sizable number of people have reached a different conclusion. In fact, 36% of retirees say managing money in retirement is more confusing than saving for retirement, and 56% say they wish they had budgeted for more unexpected expenses in retirement, accordi...

  • Easter Eternal

    Apr 27, 2022

    As I write this, I am just a few days past Easter Sunday. I am still feeling the glow and joy of a glorious Easter day. To me, Easter Sunday is just a small glimpse of what heaven will be like. Easter Sunday began in our family traditional way. We were awakened by the sound of our youngest daughter playing on the piano and singing the joyful “Easter Song”. The message of the song goes like this: “Hear the bells ringing, they’re singing , ‘Christ is risen from the dead!’” Of course our response is, “He is risen indeed!”. It was a wonderful w...

  • Nebraska the Beautiful: Conserving our Land Without the Heavy Hand of Federal Government

    Pete Ricketts, Nebraska Governor|Apr 27, 2022

    In Nebraska, we know the importance of good stewardship. Our farmers and ranchers responsibly cultivate the land so future generations of Nebraskans can continue enjoying the Good Life for years to come. It’s why, nearly one hundred years before Earth Day even began, J. Sterling Morton founded Arbor Day right here in Nebraska City. Our farmers and ranchers are the original conservationists.

    Forrest Hershberger, Publisher, Sun-Telegraph|Apr 27, 2022

The goal was to design a play environment welcoming to children with mobility challenges, developmental issues and for children who do not have special...

  • Maritime Losses

    William H. Benson, Columnist|Apr 27, 2022

    Maritime disasters can happen during either war or peace, but either way the loss in terms of human lives hits hard. A bomb, an explosion, a torpedo, a missile, an iceberg, no matter the cause, each translates into a statistic, the number of men and women whose lives were cut short. On February 15, 1898, the American battleship, the Maine, exploded in Havana, Cuba’s harbor, killing 260 U.S. Navy sailors. Americans blamed the Spanish, who owned and controlled Cuba then, but no one since has d...
