NE State Fair begins Friday

Nebraska’s State Fair is scheduled and set to open Friday, Aug. 28, in Grand Island, albeit with some changes due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. The state fair will run through Sept. 7.

According to a COVID-19 policy document on statefair. org, the annual event has restructured the livestock show schedule, separating terms for 4-H, FFA, and open class.

Additionally, fewer entries will be on the grounds each day, and several livestock competitions have already been cancelled.

Supervisors talk solar energy project, approve feed operation

Wayne Williams was present during Tuesday’s Clay County Board of Supervisor’s meeting, to give the board an idea of what solar energy technology is.

Williams, with Interconnection System, Inc, explained how nameplate tax works, specifically noting the $3,518 per megawatt that would come back to the county.

The monetary local and economic standpoint, Williams said, is astounding, adding how Clay County is fortunate to have been chosen for this project.

Questions from supervisors stemmed from the life expectancy of the panels, to handling weather damage and fire control.

Williams explained there’s a .8 percent degradation on the panels per year. After 40 years these panels will still be pushing out about 60 percent power.
