Ground broken for visionary effort

November 11, 2010

Nebraska is the happiest state in the country, announced Lt. Governor Rick Sheehy, one of the state’s dignitaries on hand for the groundbreaking ceremony of the new Mid-Plains Community College Custer Campus last Friday.
The designation as the happiest state came from MainStreet.com’s Happiness Index, which used unemployment figures, foreclosures and nonmortgage debt to determine a state's overall financial well being.
“It shows Nebraskans aren’t spending money we don’t have,” said Sheehy. “It’s individuals stepping up in communities and making things happen.”
