Nebraska County Countdown 74: Perkins County – Grant Football Was A Terrifying Machine

The #74 does not appear to be a very fun number, at least at the current time. From Wikipedia: Perkins County was organized in 1887. It is believed to have been named after Charles E. Perkins, the president of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad Note the emphasis above. The good people of Perkins County aren’t 100% sure who their county is named after. This is doubly true because the official county web site links to the wikipedia page as its history page. I don’t...

Frosted Flakes: Who Are You Rooting For at the College World Series?

Also, don’t try to get rid of snakes with gasoline. The College World Series is underway in Omaha. Texas was eliminated today. I’m sure most Husker fans are very sorry to hear that. One of the teams that has yet to lose a game is the Arkansas Razorbacks. They are working hard to woo the home town baseball fans to their cause. Here is the ad they put in the Omaha World Herald. #6 made me giggle. I’m not sure what to make of #8....

Nebraska County Countdown 76: Dundy County

Welcome to Benkelman! *Update – I found a current Husker wearing #76 and updated the bottom section accordingly. In the very southwest corner of Nebraska sits Dundy County. It was named for Elmer Scipio Dundy who was a U.S. District judge in Nebraska. Dundy’s most famous decision came in 1879 when he ruled that Indians were indeed “people” and entitled to the same rights as other people under the law. The case came about after Chief Standing Bear left the Indian Territory without permission to...

Nebraska County Countdown 75: Brown County

Welcome to the Sandhills and Niobrara River Valley! You get a two-fer today as we didn’t get a county article out yesterday. In case it hasn’t been mentioned, we are following license plate numbers in our countdown. Welcome to #75 Brown County, population 2,946 according to Google (2015). The cities in Brown County are Ainsworth (county seat), Long Pine, and Johnstown. At its peak in the 1920′s, there were over 6,000 people that called Brown County home. The photos sprinkled throughout this article are from...

Hoss is absent (he took a weekend getaway), so it’s just Hooch to visit with Evan Wiebe. Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there.

I’d like to dedicate this show to you, but it’s not enough. This week, Hoss is in Missouri on a weekend holiday (he forgot this is...

Nebraska County Countdown: 78 – Deuel County, The Sam Bass Gang

Welcome to the great county of Deuel! Named after Harry P. Deuel – the superintendent of Union Pacific in Omaha – Deuel county has a population of around 2,000 residents. The largest town and county seat Chappell, Nebraska, came to be when Charles Henry Chappell set up a railroad post in the middle of the newly formed county. Shipments from Omaha going west would have instructions to “Send this to Chappell” and the name has stuck. Deuel County gained notoriety on September 18th, 1877, when...

Robinson’s recollections, which contains memories of Mrs. Robinson and other citizens about the history of the County...

Nebraska County Countdown: 79 – Hayes County, A Flying Metal Rod And The Hot, Hot Sun

What I remember about Hayes County. Hayes County has only one real town, and that is the county seat, Hayes Center. Hamlet is listed as another town, but I’m not sure it exists anymore. Palisade is partially in the county as well. Is it real? I don’t know. Hayes Center is the only town I remember. I grew up next door in Frontier County. We played basketball and ran track against Hayes Center when I was in high school at Medicine Valley in Curtis. We...

Starting this season, football players can play in up to four games without losing a season of competition The first major change is that college football players can now participate in up to four games in a season without using up a “season of competition.” So, if Coach Frost wants to start Adrian Martinez for two games at the beginning of this next season, and two games at the end...
