    William H. Benson, Columnist|Apr 27, 2023

    This past week I listened to Craig Wortmann's book, What's Your Story: Using Stories to Ignite Performance and Be More Successful. Craig encourages readers to place their stories into a matrix of sixteen cells, four columns by four rows. He identifies four columns, top to bottom: success, failure, fun, and legends.

  • Letter to the Editor

    Brad Brothers, Potter, NE|Apr 27, 2023

    “(3) Any county, city, or village ordinance, permit, or regulation in violation of subsection (2) of this section is declared to be null and void.” This is part of the language in a new piece of legislation currently working its way through to the governor’s desk in Lincoln. This language intentionally nullifies our ability to govern at a county and city level and simply pass the power to a state level to legislate more laws in Lincoln that we then must live by on a day-to-day basis.
