20 Economic Development officials and service providers from Western Nebraska gathered in Valentine last Thursday and Friday to discuss challenges facing rural Nebraska. Similar challenges in each community included, skilled labor force, housing, early childhood development and infrastructure. The Valentine Economic Development program hosted the event which included information on board development and what local high school and college education is doing to prepare youth for careers. There were also reports from Maxine Moul, head of USDA rural development and Connie Hancock from UNL extension. The goal of the gathering was to help communities make connections with each other and share information on successful programs that could be utilized in other locations. During the event, participants toured the new Frederick Peak Golf Course and the downtown business district including Bolo Beer Company. It is hoped that this event will continue in Western Nebraska on a regular basis to help participating communities deal with rural issues.
