With the win, the Bearcats improved to 13-3; SHS’s Red Raiders dropped to 11-6. “That’s the thing abo... Full story

    I’ve been asked to speak at the No till On the Plains winter conference in Salina, Kansas again this year as well as the High Plains No Till winter conference in Burlington, Colorado.

  • Budget neded to get spending back on track

    Mike Johanns, U.S. Senator|Jan 29, 2013

    Freight trains carry 1.8 billion tons of cargo on more than 138,000 miles of track across the United States each year. It is amazing when you think about the amount of force railroad lines withstand to keep this massive industry on track. Without those parallel strips of steel, relatively small when compared to their burden, there would be nothing to guide the massive trains to their destination. The federal budget is a bit like those tracks. Without them, there is no guide for federal spending. They provide the direction needed to ensure...

  • Both House and Senate need to pass a budget

    Adrian Smith, U.S. Representative|Jan 29, 2013

    One of the most basic functions of government is to pass a budget – to decide how to use tax dollars based on the needs of the nation. The House of Representatives has passed a budget every year since Republicans won a majority, but the House cannot act alone. The Senate, which has not passed a budget in nearly four years, must also act to address our long-term deficit and debt. The budget serves as a policy outline establishing guidelines for appropriations and other spending and revenue bills through the rest of the year. Federal law r...

    Tina Mines, Sun-Telegraph|Jan 29, 2013

    In the complex world of religious beliefs many people would agree this conservative dogma and the Catholicism dogma run hand in hand; though this could be due to a direct branching from Catholics to Lutheranism, specifically Missouri Synod. Much like the Catholics, Missouri Synod Lutherans embrace this extremely conservative nature according to Pastor Bradley Heinecke, leader of the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. A nature close to Pastor Heinecke’s own upbringing, “I had the great joy of being...

As soon as one enters the door the red, white and black of the Nebraska Huskers tickles the eyes, the pride of the state can’t all but be missed.
