Louisville, Nebraska is no longer the best-kept secret in the state of Nebraska, much to the dismay of the "Committee to Keep Louisville for Louisvillians."
Evidently, the governor found out what any visitor to Louisville can plainly see--a vibrant, growing community on the move. There are no empty storefronts on Main Street. People want to bring their businesses to Louisville but cannot find the space. The pain of getting through the paving project has been forgotten, and the benefits remain. Visitors look at the Main Street scene and marvel, "What a great town you have!" Everybody is working together for improvement: city government, interested citizens, and the business community.
The best part of the story is that we've only just begun. The next few years will bring the Highway 66 Connector south of Louisville with a Main Street stretching south to meet it. This will create new areas for business and residential development while tying directly to our classic downtown district. Louisville will end up with the things a 21st century community needs while maintaining ties to its 19h century origins, the best outcome for a city in the path of certain growth in the decades to come.

Give Me da News!
What the Cat Saw...
After my nap the other morning, I woke up hungry and went after the mouse that my pet humans play with all the time. Turns out it's not a real mouse at all, but some kind of computer gizmo, made out of plastic. Yecchhh!
Anyway, after one of the pets brought me some real food (they are well trained), I had another round with the plastic mouse. I ended up on the internet! Went to www.228main.com, the relaunched website of Leibman Financial Services, Inc. I read the newsletter articles about the economy, markets, and current events and even saw some investment research on a couple of stocks. If I wasn't already fully invested in cat toys, I could even look at my account balances and transactions. This computer thing is pretty cool--I just wish the mouse tasted better.
Having fun, and chompin on mouses south of the river....
