Quotes

"Highway 30 is still snowpacked and there's slush...people are getting stuck in the middle of it...there's people in the ditch. The westbound lane hasn't moved at all, the eastbound lane is sporadic."
"It's just a great way to get individuals out there and realize that their trash does make a difference in the community. We like to help clean things up and get a group of people and enjoy the outdoors" said Monica Rotherham, Special Programs Manager for the Norfolk Area Chamber
"This update of our state's C-BED law will make it easier to use the C-BED model for renewable energy projects of all sizes. It also puts smaller renewable energy projects on an equal footing with projects over $20 million in size who can use the sales tax abatement contained in LB104 passed in 2013. It rewards renewable energy projects who have local ownership and use more local and state content which is good for our state because those kinds of projects help maximize the economic development benefits of the wind or solar development. LB402 is one more positive step forward in our state's effort to develop our world class wind and solar resources to the benefit of our landowners, rural communities, environment, and state economy" Hansen concluded
..."Most of the issues that I've been dealing with are very conservative issues: property rights, no eminent domain for private gain," he says. "But the so-called conservatives haven't been standing up for that issue here in our state, so the people have had to stand up for themselves. And I think I'm an example of that."
