Dept. of Transportation Meeting in Tecumseh on December 16

The Nebraska Department of Transportation, southeast Nebraska’s county commissioners, and Senator Julie Slama will be participating in a meeting at the Johnson County Courthouse on December 16. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss jurisdiction issues on the maintenance of state highway right-of-ways.

Many older highways, including Highway 50, seem to be held to different maintenance standards for right-of-ways than highways that have been resurfaced in recent years. Senator Slama invited the Department of Transportation to participate in this meeting in Tecumseh so that they could experience, firsthand, the struggles we’re facing with highway infrastructure in District 1.

Cook Auxiliary Sends Christmas Care Packages to Area Soldiers

Twelve servicemen and women from the Tecumseh and Cook area will receive Christmas care packages through Bickel Nelson American Legion Auxiliary Unit #360 of Cook.

The Bickel Nelson Unit has been sending Christmas care packages to area servicemen and women for over 30 years.

“It’s a way to thank the servicemen and women for the time they have taken in serving our country. It’s a way to give them a little piece of home away from home,” said Joyce Roesener.

Each care package is filled with toiletries such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste and mouthwash, as well as snacks, drinks, beef jerky, cookies, gum, pencils and paper, NebraskaLand magazine, a book and Christmas cards. The only items unacceptable for sending are alcohol, tobacco and chocolate.
