The Upper Big Blue NRD Board of Directors have selected Paul Bethune of York to fill the seat vacated by long-time board member Steve Buller, who retired from the board in May 2015. Paul Bethune represents Sub-District 8. There were three other applicantswho expressed interest  in filling the seat. They were Roberta (Bobbi) Janda, Jim Schneider and Greg Staehr. The board selected Bethune by majority vote through an open roll-call. Bethune was then given the oath of office administered by John Turnbull, NRD General Manager. Bethune will be completing the rest of Buller’s term, which will expire in January 2017. Bethune stated in his letter for board consideration that he has been employed with his family business, Bethune Construction, LLC, since 2000. He is a 1996 graduate of the University of Nebraska, receiving a B.S. in Natural Resources. He wrote: “I am an outdoorsman. I hunt, fish and camp as much as time allows.  I am interested in water quality and quantity, fish and wildlife habitat, recreation, flood  control, and soil and water conservation. I am a member of the local Pheasants Forever. I am a den leader for  ub Scout Pack 173. I have also coached Little League baseball in the past.” On behalf of the Upper Big Blue NRD Board of Directors and staff, we wish to welcome Paul Bethune as a new board member.
