Well, we made it through another Super Bowl Sunday.
Each week, I have the privilege of traveling Nebraska.
Have you ever said, “Why in the world was I doing it that way?”
• I can’t comprehend how weather forecasters were able to lock in on our recent blizzard and begin issuing warnings … warnings that time proved to be uncannily accurate … while the storm was still in the middle of nowhere over the Pacific.
If your week was anything like mine, you were able to enjoy two lovely snow days filled with warm coffee, Netflix binges and at-home productivity.
The internet is full of lots of fun tidbits . . . here are few that certainly apply to most of us:
I have now come up with several varieties of this Low Sugar Cookie, playing with different flavor options.
As I listened to the ferocious winds this week and saw the blinding snow, I remembered a time so long ago.
Nebraska has a rich and powerful history of answering the call to serve. For nearly 150 years, our state has witnessed this bravery in each of America’s wars. The past decade is no different. Time and again, the men and women of Nebraska have risen to defend our precious freedom in Iraq, Afghanistan, and across the globe.
Speaking with nearly 200 young farmers and ranchers from across our state recently reinforced to me how bright the future looks for Nebraska agriculture.
The blizzard that we just had is one that caused all traffic to stop, closed schools and businesses, and most people hunkered down inside their homes to wait it out.
The 2016 Crossroads Conference (CRC) basketball tournament played out last week at City Auditorium.
The third week of the 104th Legislature, Second Session continued with committee hearings for the hundreds of bills introduced this year by the Unicameral.
School choice, public school spending, and property tax relief continue to be “hot topics” around Nebraska so I thought I would weigh in on these important issues from my perspective as the superintendent of schools in York, Nebraska.
With the predicted snow storm coming, it made me think about growing up in Omaha.
In a time when plenty of words are slung about, I’d like to share some real actions that are leading to a better world.
“There is no such thing as a free lunch,” said Milton Friedman, winner of the 1976 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences.
There are a lot of perks to being a sports editor.
These electronic words are being scrawled Friday morning.
As a parent, I am encouraged and inspired when I see school leaders who are proud of their schools.
I’m going to level with you.
Looks like I have piqued your attention for the 2016 Home and Garden Show.
This past weekend I was reminded of what really matters in one’s life.
As a personal friend of Dave Wessels and a fairly active volunteer at most of our major events, the recent and very unfortunate events are very disturbing.
My friend Emily is the one who told me about these Sour Cream Drop Biscuits as we stood in the church foyer solving all the world’s problems and talking about recipes.
This is my second year covering the Crossroads Conference Basketball Tournament, and my first year covering every single game – 15 of them as of early Thursday morning – with a deadline.
Today marks the 30th anniversary of the tragedy known as the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.
Each year, January 22 marks the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in the case of Roe v. Wade.
During my travels around the Third District this week, I thought often of those traveling from our state to Washington, D.C. for the March for Life.
Here we go again with one of the most exciting annual sporting events in York County.
Some 225 years ago George Washington traveled to Massachusetts and found that the state’s governor, John Hancock, felt that he outranked the President.
Last week, I introduced Legislative Bill 975, the Child Welfare Services Preservation Act.
It’s that time of year, to do some cleaning.
The Wessels Family History Farm board took a big hit in December when five directors resigned from the board.
Last week, I delivered my second State of the State address to the Unicameral, and then I went on the road for 10 statewide stops to talk directly with Nebraskans in South Sioux City, Columbus, Grand Island, Hastings, North Platte, Sidney, Scottsbluff, Alliance, Valentine, and Fremont.
Well, after I had my little political rant last week and publically had to respond to a family member who disagreed (Donna, I love you so much), I thought I should sit down, settle down, take a deep breath and share a few thoughts on a few subjects.
Folks who live farther ‘out there and up there’ than Nebraska, say northwest Wyoming for instance, have up-close, easy viewing of Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep this time of year.
