Used Bicycles Being Collected Through June 23 to Benefit the Orphan Grain Train

As of Friday, June 8, over 60 used bicycles and scooters have been collected at Kerner True Value in Tecumseh. The bicycle collection is a project sponsored by St. Paul’s Hickory Grove Lutheran Church in Auburn and St. John’s Lutheran Church in Tecumseh. These used bicycles will be refurbished, before being given to those who can use the bicycles. The bicycles will be taken to a prison in Kansas for repair and refurbishing. Then they will be donated to the Orphan Grain Train organization for distribution.

Bicycles that cannot be repaired may still have salvageable parts. Once the bicycles are refurbished they are delivered to the Orphan Grain Train warehouses in Grand Island and Norfolk where they will be shipped to children and adults in other countries. This bicycle collection will continue through Saturday, June 23.

Water tests collected on June 4 have confirmed that toxic algae levels at Kirkman’s Cove Recreation Area near Humboldt have exceeded limits set for safe contact with the water. Therefore, the lake has been placed on “Health Alert Status”, which means all body contact activities including swimming, wading, and water skiing are restricted.

.Nemaha NRD officials report that the recreation area remains open, and all other usual activities such as boating, picnicking, camping, and hiking are permitted. Fishing is still allowed, though anglers are encouraged to practice “catch and release” as the toxins could be present in the liver, intestines, and pancreas of fish.
