Shark Week drives love of sharks

By Ashley D. Swanson

Picture it: you’re sitting on a surfboard or a boat and you see the dorsal fin rise above the waves.

Instinctively, thanks in part to a 1975 movie and the fact that the body attached to the dorsal fin has a number of incredibly sharp teeth, your nerves shoot up and instantly the shore seems better than the water.

Sharks are not everyone’s favorite animal. Probably for good reason, but I cannot get over the fact that even though these animals could kill me with one bite, I love them.

‘The calm before the storm’

By Tory Duncan

This week’s thoughts almost feel like that of the “Twas the night before Christmas,” only instead of Christmas, I’m going with “Twas the night before school begins.”

Well almost anyway. 

I’ve come to feel that the older I get, the quicker life goes! One week I’m enjoying the roads less traveled in Nebraska, to what I’ll say is the “calm before the storm,” as it just amazes me that the school year is nearly upon us.

NE Extension offers clinic for farmland inheritors

Lincoln—Those who have inherited or received farmland and want to learn more about the best strategies for managing the asset are encouraged to attend one of several Nebraska Extension programs being offered across the state in August and September.

“I am contacted monthly from citizens who have had their parents pass away, and now they are managing a farm for the first time in their lives,” said Allan Vyhnalek, Nebraska Extension educator and event speaker. “They may have even grown up there, but haven’t been around for 30 or 40 years and need to understand that farming practices and management concepts have changed.”
