Stateâ€™s population shift will result in
redistricting Nebraska in 2011
The first local results from the 2010 Census are in, and they show Nebraska's population continues its trend of becoming more concentrated in its most populous counties. Since 2000, the state's largest three counties - Douglas, Lancaster and Sarpy - have grown by nearly 125,000 residents while the rest of the state lost nearly 10,000 residents.
Kevin Evans and Cody Schweitzer have been good friends since they were kids. Like many friends they use to talk about how much fun it might be someday to be business partners, never really knowing when - or if - that would ever happen.
In March 2004, it did happen for these two friends, when they formed a business partnership and purchased Ag Land ATV in Broken Bow.
Kevin was already familiar with the business, having worked there for then owner Justin Vandevort in 2002.
â€śWhen the opportunity came up to buy it, I called Cody and we went for it,â€ť Kevin says.
The Nebraska State Bandmasters Association presented their highest honor, the Donald A. Lentz Outstanding Bandmaster Award, last Friday, and the award winner Broken Bow music educator Bill Reichert, could not have been more surprised.
It was retired fellow music educator Joyce Patchâ€™s job to see that he was in attendance. She asked Reichert to be there saying she was going to receive an award and sheâ€™d be honored if heâ€™d come. He did. Little did he know she was to be one of the presenters, and the award was to go to him.
