• Big 10 Summit In Mills County

        I must have read my invitation wrong, but I thought last Thursday’s gathering in western Mills County was supposed to be a groundbreaking celebration for the new U.S. Highway 34 - Missouri River bridge project.
        I didn’t know it was going to turn into a summit to discuss Nebraska’s move to the Big 10 Conference and the future rivalry between the Husker and Hawkeye football teams.

  • Council Bluffs salutes Edward Scissorhands

        I didn’t know Edward Scissorhands was from Council Bluffs.

        Apparently, he is. Why else would Council Bluffs let the Iowa West Foundation spend $3 million to erect a four-piece monument in Edward’s honor on the corners of the 24th Street bridge over Interstate 80.
        The sculptures, in the process of being installed this month, stand as tall as 60 feet high in some places.
