What's the news that gets to you.

All kinds of different stories making the news these days. Away from the political noise of "he said, she said" stuff, which is good theatrics, but I wish they would get something done about coming to a common goal of making this world a better place to live. Anyway..

I see, Toys For Us is shutting down. The blame is being put on Wal-Mart and Amazon. I didn't realize Toys For Us had been around 70 years. I wonder where the idea for Toys For Us came from. there were a lot of new ideas put into action after World War II. Maybe, Toys For Us was one of them. As a parent you, like your children grow out of the store. Seems like they couldn't get the last couple of generations to take their children there and make purchases.

Did you hear about the dog that wound up in Japan, instead of Kansas City? Seems an airline passenger was traveling. She got to K.C., but her dog wound up in Japan, while another dog...yup you guessed it, was supposed to go to Japan and wound up in Kansas City. There's a canine caper for you!

Then there's the battle for television viewers between The Voice, on NBC and American Idol, now on ABC. The Voice got the jump on Idol, by starting about six weeks ago. Idol has made some changes, instead of four celebrity judges, they are down to three. We'll see how all that turns out. It ultimately comes down to who is the aspiring singer that wins the hearts and votes of television viewers.

What grabs you for news? Cable TV, Internet, or the National Enquirer?

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…
