What's New?

July 3, 2000

The Day of Judgement is upon us....

Say, it has come to my attention that many of you are not clear on the use of our increasingly popular Discussion Forums; http://www.louisvillenebraska.com/discus/ On the left side of the screen, at the top, there are clickable buttons labeled:

  • Last Day and

  • Last Week

Try clicking on "Last Week". What you will see is all the conversations that had new postings during the last 7 days. Additionally "Last Day" gives you new postings with the last 24 hours. This is very useful when you are just checking in and don't want to wade through all of the history, you just want to see recent postings. This is really the best way to keep current on all the recent hub-bub.

We need to make an effort to get the word out to all those teeny tiny micro businesses in town to go ahead and set up shop right here on the web! http://www.louisvillenebraska.com/commerce/index.htm As you can see there is a link entitled: Site Builder create your own web site for free. We certainly need to get all of the Main street businesses listed, but we especially need all the folks that offer Day Care, and Haul Rock, and Cut Hair and Build Custom Birdhouses listed. If we can work together, and support our local, small and micro-businesses this way then we all will enjoy a better and stronger economy. But we have to find all these folks first and encourage them to take this free opportunity to advertise. Did, I mention it is Free?? That is even cheaper than tacking up a piece of paper at the Laundromat, and more effective. We will be happy to help anyone that needs assistance, just give us a call at 234-2085!

I have been officially informed that we STILL have a water emergency in effect contrary to some apparent rumors. I don't like it any better than you do, but it is, what it is so lets deal with it! http://www.louisvillenebraska.com/discus/ You can read all the details and the how fors by clicking on "Water Emergency Situation" and then clicking on "What are the prospects for the future?" I think the city is doing a heck of a job laying out all the facts for us.

I appreciate the folks that have taken advantage of the Free Classified Ads! http://louisvillenebraska.com/bbs/ The more stuff we have listed the more people will check it out, so don't forget to place an ad for that old bagel-cutter you don't use anymore. (Come to think of it, I am in the market for a bagle cutter!)

I am feeling a little tension in the air recently, and I think I know why...

This is the time of year where I routinely drop 4 or 5 hundred smackeroo's to satisfy my ancestral craving for fireworks!

Problem is, my better half does not understand the sheer blissful elegance of watching your wages disappear in a 40 minute puff of sparks, and bang, and fizz, and zing and testosterone. It just isn't the 4th without simulating the Battle of the Bulge, not to mention the obligatory lalapalooza big bertha super wazoo for the grand finale!

As the clock ticks and we get closer to that greatest of all Holidays, I am dropping all sorta hints about the importance of supporting local fund raising activities, and how wonderful our new medical insurance coverage is, but still I sense hostility...

It's time to pull out my patriotic speech! I have to rally some good old fashioned patriotism and I believe that I remember every single word of America the Beautiful!! Now I have a plan! I feel much more optimistic! She will never be the wiser!! Look out Volunteer Fire Dept. Fireworks Booth! Here I come!!

But I digress....

For some months now, there has been a quiet, top secret plan being hatched for the greatest ever boat-float to be presented during the Cedar Creek boat parade tomorrow. The finest minds and craftsmen in Louisville have been patiently working through all the details and bringing together the concept in strict secret. Anticipation is mounting as the day of Judgement nears, and if there is any justice this monumental effort will be recognized as the greatest 4th of July boat float ever by Louisvillians!

Having fun, and saving water south of the river....
