Big Fish Rumored in Louisville Lake!!

We are going to have ourselves an election here this November! With just now 3 months to go, the campaigning has begun right here on the web.
Go to: http://www.louisvillenebraska.com/discus/ and once you are there, click on: "Louisville Elections Candidate Platforms." Two of the 18 candidates have stepped up to speak their minds on the challenges that face our City, and their approach to the solutions.

For Candidate Pasco visit: East Councilman Candidate Pasco.
For Candidate Petersen visit: East Councilman Candidate Petersen .

We are extending the red carpet to ALL of the candidates to step up and speak on this forum, and to all Louisvillian's to step up identify themselves and ask what they can expect from each candidate. Anyone that is uncomfortable in any way using our community website or the Discussion Forum is greatly encouraged to call me and I will help you use this powerful tool.

Library Internet Help
Today marks the second of ten sessions where help accessing and understanding the use of the Internet is available free for anyone in Louisville. All sessions are 1:30pm - 5:00pm Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and are on a first come first served basis. You do not need to have a home computer!! Part of the instruction will help you setup a free portable email account that you can access from the library's or a friends computer. This is important for anyone submitting a job resume, or wanting to auction their handicrafts at Ebay, or co-respond with an old Army buddy living in Singapore. The primary goal of these sessions is to let everybody participate in your community website without being nervous or hesitant. This is especially important so that everyone can participate in the election process. Any questions or topics that are appropriate for a general audience are welcome and encouraged.

Jaycees to the Rescue!!
The rumor turned out to be true and our beloved Louisville Jaycees are scrambling around trying to put together three different forums for the candidates to discuss their views live and in person! Rhonda Anderson will be chairing the project and the initial thought has been sometime in October. This is LATE BREAKING NEWS!! and remember, you heard it here first! Stay tuned as we will learn the details in subsequent newsletters!

Editorial Mumbo Jumbo...

I can Brush my Teeth!!
By now everyone should know that the State of Nebraska has given us all the go ahead to resume drinking water from the City water supply without boiling it. I for one am pretty happy about that. Turns out there never was any real contamination issue, just some good old fashioned prudence. As a prominent member of our local financial community said to me; "Hey, what are you gonna do? A Semi hits a fire hydrant,... stuff like that happens!" Yep, I suppose. I just could not get used to brushing without that comforting and familiar stream of water tumbling from the faucet. It's like listening to the radio. I can't brush my teeth without at least 2 radios on within ear shot. Anyways, life is better with clean teeth and running water.

But I digress..
I was checking our official website Guest Book yesterday, and I noticed a truly interesting posting:

There are several very nice and complimentary guestbook postings we have recorded, but the one about the big fish really captured my imagination.

Okay, here they are,...... http://www.ngpc.state.ne.us/parks/lville.html
Which one is it!?!?

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