In 1913, Woodrow Wilson began the first of two terms as 28th President of the United States, women were fighting for the right to vote, and Ford Motor Company introduced the first moving assembly line. It is also the year Leona (Baker) McCaslin came into this world - May 9 to be exact.
Leona shares her birth year with some pretty impressive names: Richard Nixon, Rosa Parks, Vince Lombardi and Gerald Ford, to name a few.

LINCOLN -- Senators supporting a bill to repeal the death penalty and replace it with life imprisonment without the possibility of parole failed to muster enough votes to overcome a filibuster Tuesday.
A vote to cease debate on LB543, introduced by Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha, and bring it to a final vote failed with 28 in favor and and 20 opposed, five votes shy of the 33 needed.
The result means that the bill to repeal the death penalty in Nebraska is essentially dead.

LINCOLN -- Â Nebraska senators voted 36-0 yesterday (Thursday) to advance the stateâ€™s main budget bill after a two-day debate over several amendments related to property tax relief, railroad inspectors and funding for the University of Nebraska.
The Legislature has spent more time debating the budget on the floor than in previous years.
An amendment introduced by Sen. Ken Schilz of Ogallala would have added an additional $15 million to the $230 million allocated over the next biennium for the Property Tax Credit Program.
