Quotes

"Well, hopefully it means that the project itself would contribute substantially to our economy -- not just Blue Hill, but in Webster County" Schunk said
That will be one of the principal points of Kendall Curry, who will be the speaker for this year's Norris Foundation Prayer Breakfast. "I'll be talking about Nebraska Public Power, with particular focus on the important role Sen. Norris played in public power's development" Curry said
"It's going to be a huge loss for an area that should be protected" he told the board
"It's a tear-jerker because the script talks a lot about individuals who were lost from this New York fire station and when you're part of team like this you get to know the guys pretty well. It's pretty much living with them for numerous 24-hour shifts and whether you're in New York or McCook -- it's like you become part of a new family. And so there's also a lot of positive sentiment in the script too."
