Iler Smiler

Years ago I went up to Heavenly Valley, Sierra's in California/Nevada, for a skiing experience  I won't ever forget. Near the top of the ski resort you could look to the east and see Nevada and the desert and to the west California as far as the eyes could see. The best part...I made it safely down the mountain!


Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley will headline publishing rights organization ASCAP’s (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) inaugural Snowmass Celebrity Ski Fest charity event which will be held in the Colorado Rockies on February 21-22, 2018. Singers, songwriters and celebrities will come together to raise money for LadyAID, a philanthropic effort founded by the members of Lady Antebellum – Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott. Created in 2012, the organization garners awareness and support for children in need locally, nationally and globally, as it is a component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The Snowmass Celebrity Ski Fest will offer participants the opportunity to ski with some of the country’s top songwriters and attend an intimate concert by Charles. The concert will take place at a private lodge in the mountains and will open with a hit songwriters round that will include songwriter-artist Edwin McCain, songwriter-producer Chris DeStefano, singer-songwriter and star of CMT’s Nashville, Charles Esten, and more to be announced.

It's Going to be a Chilly Winter!

What's the weather going to be like this winter? Well if you're hoping for mild and warm, you may be disappointed in the weather outlook from Al Dutcher, State Climatologist with UNL. Farmers, businessmen and others interested in what we'll see this winter came to Dutcher's presentation at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. 
Al started out his presentation by reviewing how the weather has been so far this fall and winter, and compared it to last year. This year’s La Nina event is much stronger than last year and expected to last longer.
Many people have commented on the recent stretch of dry weather we've been seeing in our region of Nebraska as of late, but Dutcher explained we received almost all of our fall precipitation during the month of October. 
Al said the La Nina pattern will keep dry conditions south of Nebraska, which will continue to expand the  drought in those areas. 
Dutcher says when looking at the La Nina event that we are currently experie…

Flu Is Here
