They batter up these filets that are light and sweet and just, delicious! They serve 'em up pretty generous also, with all the fixin's. Mark your calendars now, for Friday after next, March 22nd for the annual Fire Station Fish Fry! Emm, Boy! They're Good!

Bandwidth Blues
Folks, I am delighted to say that the days of the bandwidth desert south of the Platte are numbered! For all of us that have fought with and endured the terrible slow and unreliable Internet access that has been available in Louisville, relief is finally on the way. I didn't want to say anything until I was pretty darn sure, but it now appears like legitimate DSL, for High Speed Internet Access is going to be a reality before the 4th of July!

Stay tuned and we can discus how well they execute on this promise!

What the Cat Saw...
Hi Hardware Cat Fans!

I really had a hard time sleeping last weekend, what with the noisy weather that we had and with all the excitement going on down at Steve Sherman's Louisville Art Gallery and all those artistic people hangin around. They had a truck full of statues and paintings and stuff they were unloading for this big exhibit Saturday! 
Things sure are changing from when I used to just watch that pain shaker all day. 'course we just had that article about us in the Plattsmouth Journal talkin about how we are a community on the move and all that, and yesterday I heard that the Lincoln Newspaper is writing another article on our Community for this Sunday. I get to read a lot more newspapers since that ol' Larry decided to save on Kitty Litter...

Having fun, and scratchin' the classifieds south of the river....

Hank the Hardware Cat
