National Trails Day

Al Brock was our guest on the KVSH Comment Program on Wednesday. Mr Brock came in to discuss National Trails Day on Saturday June 6th which promotes awareness of the over 200,000 miles of trails in the nation which are open to the public.

On Sunday June 7th, there will be a “Trails Work Day” on the Minnechaduza trail by the city park. Volunteers are asked to meet at the foot bridge over the creek in the park at about 9am, and will work on the trails into the afternoon.

If you would like to help volunteer, you are asked to bring some basic pruning tools if you are able to.

The weather looks to be cooperative this Sunday with forecasters predicting some sunshine and upper 70s.

Turtle Races June 6

The Valentine Chamber of Commerce annual Minnechaduza Day and Turtle Races will be held at the city park on June 6th with races beginning at noon.  The chamber will again be launching hundreds of rubber duckie-esque turtles that may be adopted at participating Valentine merchants. People are encouraged to “adopt” a turtle for $5 each, or 5 for $20 dollars, and if your turtle wins one of the ten qualifying heats, you win $50 in Chamber Bucks. If your turtle ends up winning the overall championship race, you could win $750 in Chamber Bucks if you are present. If you are not present, you still win $500 in Chamber Bucks. Turtles can be adopted at Wells Fargo Bank, Brewer's Canoers and Bowling Center, Comfort Inn, Conoco, Fashions, Flowerland, Henderson's IGA, The Red Door Boutique, Sandhills State Bank, Shear Madness, Shell Travel Center, Union Bank and Trust, the Valentine Visitor Center, and Young's Western Wear. The evening wraps up with the Cruise Night Activities of the Valentine Classic Motor Club.

   

Personal property tax break for Nebraska businesses passes

Nebraska farmers and business owners could get a property tax exemption under a bill passed by lawmakers.

Senators voted 47-0 on Thursday to give final approval to an exemption for personal business property.

The measure by Sen. Mike Gloor of Grand Island would allow business owners to exempt the first $10,000 worth of tangible property used in their operations, for an average tax savings of $162. The bill would apply to farm equipment such as irrigation pivots and tractors, and business equipment such as rail cars, pipelines and factory machines.

The bill would cost the state an estimated $19.6 million a year in lost revenue. It now heads to Gov. Pete Ricketts.
