PATRIOT DAY

On Sept. 11, 2001, America faced its worst day of terrorism. Nearly 3,000 people were killed as 19 al-Qaida members hijacked four passenger jetliners. Two planes smashed into New York's World Trade Center, causing the twin towers to fall; one plowed into the Pentagon; and the fourth was crashed into a field in western Pennsylvania.

 

Korean War Vet Supper

American Legion Auxiliary units from Valentine, Cody and Wood Lake are cooperating on a tribute to Korean War veterans on September 28th in Valentine. A supper for veterans and their spouses will be held at the Curtis Hoover Events Center on Main Street at 5pm. At this time they have compiled a list of about 35 Korean War Vets from the area. If anyone knows of a Korean War Vet they are asked to contact Bonnie Philips at 402 376 5139 to make sure they are included on the invite list. This past summer the Auxiliaries held a hugely successful appreciation parade and supper for Viet Nam War Vets.

Transmission Line Public Meetings

 

A steady crowd attended the first open house hosted by Nebraska Public Power District in Thedford Monday, to discuss a new 345KV electric transmission line in the Sandhills. The purpose of the line is to enhance reliability, reduce congestion and provide opportunities for renewable energy. Two corridor routes have been proposed at this time. The northern route would go across the very southern edge of Cherry, Brown, Rock an Holt counties. The proposed southern route would go along Thedford, Halsey and the Northern edges of Thomas, Blaine, Loup, Garfield and Wheeler Counties. The second public meeting will be held today (Tuesday) in Sutherland at the high school. Another meeting will be held in Dunning at Sandhills High School on Thursday (Sept 12th) from 2 to 8 PM. Construction of the line is slated to begin in the summer of 2016 and be completed at the end of 2017.

 

Watch Gas Prices in the next few weeks.

In the next couple of weeks gas stations will be undertaking a new blending of fuel products. Essentially 87 octane or regular gasoline will no longer be supplied. Suboctane is going to come in to be blended with other products such as premium octane gas. Stations will be forced to choose which way they want to go with product offerings. Some octanes may not be offered and some will be more expensive. Listen to the KVSH Comment program this Friday as Rick Medema from Roadrunner stores will discuss these new blends and what it could cost us at the pump. That’s at 10:15 on Friday.
