Nebraska County Countdown 55: Thurston County

Murder, medicine, and a mashing by the Sooners. Note – yes we know we skipped 56. We are working to remedy that situation. Welcome to Thurston County, population 6,940 (2010 census). The county was named after U.S. Senator John Thurston. It is made up of land divided between the Omaha and Winnebago Indian reservations. Obligatory map for redvalley: The county includes the cities and villages of Macy, Pender, Rosalie, Thurston, Walthill, and Winnebago. One historical site is Blackbird Hill, about three miles from Macy and...

Friday Flakes: Try Not to Grow Up

Not sure if it is a good thing Two years ago I made a joke or laughed at something and a friend of mine said, “Geez you’re still a little kid. Ever think it might be time to grow up a bit?” He said it in a laughing light-hearted way. I responded, “I have two children. You can’t help but grow up when you have children.” Fast forward to July 4th, 2018 and I think I grew up. And I am not a fan of...

Nebraska County Countdown #57: Johnson County – The Story of Colonel Johnson vs. Chief Tecumseh

Population of 5,217 and is made up of the following towns: Cook, Crab Orchard, Elk Creek, Saint Mary, Sterling, Tecumseh and Vesta. Tecumseh is the county seat which has one of my favorite courthouses in the entire state. It is so clean. I could probably eat off of that floor. If you have been following us on our countdown you would notice that there are some pretty sad looking courthouses. I’m looking at you…Boyd County and Keith County. JOHNSON COUNTY HAS SOME INTERESTING HISTORY: The...

Breaking: Fox, Big Ten Network pursuing ESPN’s Paul Finebaum | NCAA Football | Sporting News Negotiations between Paul Finebaum and ESPN have heated up, but a powerful new team is bidding for the possible free agent’s services: Fox Sports. and its affiliated Big Ten Network.

Nebraska County Countdown: #58 Nance County

The unique creation of the 58th best county in the state Nance is a unique county in Nebraska. Most counties and the land that they encompass were settled through the Homestead Acts that came through congress in the 1800′s. Through this settlers could come out to the western half of the US and plot their land to sow and bring fourth new prosperity to the land. It was a great way to get rid of a lot of land and try to repurpose it to...

Frosted Flakes: Happy Fourth of July!

Tractors, tornadoes, volleyball, Ron Brown, and much more! Happy Independence Day! I hope you are enjoying the most American of all holidays. On this day, back in 1776, a group of colonists flashed their collective middle finger at the king of England by signing the Declaration of Independence. So, how do we celebrate? Many people cook things over open flames or in boiling oil. Almost everyone takes advantage of their impulse to blow things up, sometimes while simultaneously drinking heavily. Americans are multi-taskers if nothing...

Nebraska County Countdown #59: Sarpy County and a Nuclear Apocalypse

Fireworks won’t be the only thing to brighten your day on July 4th A few years ago I read Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank. Below is a quick synopsis of the book. “Alas, Babylon.” Those fateful words heralded the end. When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of...

2018 Troy Trojans Football Preview

Troy lost several key pieces from a Sun Belt championship team that will need to be replaced, but the Trojans still might be the toughest non-conference opponent Nebraska will face this September. If I said that Troy was going to be the best opponent Nebraska was going to face in the non-conference part of the 2018 football schedule, you might do a double take. While Akron has the name coach (Terry Bowden) and Colorado has a Power Five pedigree (allegedly, though they did win ten...

Nebraska County Countdown: #60 – Frontier County And The Stockville “World Fair”

I’ll probably never be able to go home again… Frontier County is home to my hometown of Curtis. Suffice it to say that I have plenty of stories I could tell from my childhood and on, but I’m not going to talk about Curtis today. I realize some may find this disappointing, as you might have tuned in to hear tales of my juvenile delinquent behavior growing up. I’m sorry. Sometimes those stories involve other people and I’m still not 100% sure how far you...

Frosted Flakes: The NBA Season is “Now” over

Plus, we have world cup action & Huskers stuff We can now say the NBA season is over and it’s all because of a single man’s decision. One of the top two basketball players in the last 30 years is taking his talents to Los Angeles. Congratulations to all the Lakes fans out there. To Cleveland, at least you got one championship out of LeBron. Is the money that he is taking in LA an absurd amount, sure it is. But at this point it...

Nebraska County Countdown 61: Sheridan County

We’ll consider Sheridan apart of the panhandle It’s July, which means it’s almost August, which means less than a month until football. Can I get away with saying that? Personally, the Fourth of July is a great holiday that I spend with friends and family. Since this is my last countdown article before the 4th I wish everybody a safe and happy Independence Day. Speaking of Independence Day, my amateur historian roommate ditched me and went back home for the rest of the week so...
