Halsey National Forest renovates fire lookout

October 26, 2011

The Fire Lookout Tower at Halsey National Forest recently received a much-needed renovation because of safety concerns. The aging Scott Lookout Tower, the only working fire tower in Nebraska, has been out of commission the last two years.

Originally built in the mid-1940s, this is the third tower to stand on this location. The previous two are believed to have been lost to fires. To bring the current tower up to code, workers replaced all of the wood steps and decking, replaced handrails, and reinforced the base with concrete. The tower was also reshingled and repainted.

October 26, 2011

One doesn’t normally think of a funeral as a place to get inspired, but for Leah Peterson that is exactly what happened.
It was at a funeral not too long ago that Leah heard the message, “don’t wait to pursue your dreams, because you never know how much time you have.” She took that advice to heart and decided to finally pursue her dream of writing a book.
Leah says she actually penned the children’s story, An Apple for Dapple, a couple of years ago. Creative writing is something she has always enjoyed, and she got the inspiration for her story from her own daughter, Maggie Bell.
