Indeed, the two new owners of Dumbbell Ranch, who split the 15,500 acres in a $16.5 million purchase deal, reside on bordering family ranches.

  • Attorney General fighting laws he supported as senator

    JL Schmidt, Statehouse Correspondent Nebraska Press Association|Oct 19, 2023

    Attorney General Mike Hilgers is now fighting prison reform measures he supported not too long ago as a state senator. That's politics. In the Attorney General 's office. Imagine that! Not hard to believe if you've been paying attention. The last AG walked in lockstep with the governor as did the guy before him, and ... Let's not forget Don Stenberg, the AG who wanted to be anything else, mostly US Senator (he took a shot and failed a couple times) and finally wound up as State Treasurer before...

  • Up close and personal: Nebraska couple telling, showing, bison story to visitors

    NATALIA ALAMDARI, Flatwater Free Press|Oct 19, 2023

    Their low, rumbling bellow first cuts through the silence of the Sandhills. Next comes the crunch of pointed hooves, trudging their way through tall prairie grasses. Then, the oohs of the out-of-towners watching – people up close and personal with the majestic thousand-pound mammals for the first time. This is Golden Prairie Bison, a ranch nestled in the Sandhills where Carl and Vicki Simmons raise a herd of 50 bison. Theirs is one of the dozens of bison ranches in Nebraska, one piece of an o...

  • Original views on life from rural America LuAnn Schindler, Publisher

    LuAnn Schindler, Publisher|Oct 5, 2023

    When you think of Colorado, do you envision majestic mountains thrusting toward the heavens? Ski slopes carrying skiers down a slippery path? Clear, cool lakes and wild flowers? Me, too. Yet, last weekend as we traveled to Denver for our son's wedding, both Scott and I were disheartened at the amount of trash and debris along the vast stretches of interstate and even within Denver proper. I cringe here at home, too, when I see beer cans and fast-food bags tossed along the side of the road. This...

  • Dear Colorado, what is hatred anyway?

    JL Schmidt, Nebraska Press Association Statehouse Correspondent|Sep 21, 2023

    An open letter to Colorado. It's fitting that I am writing this on the 22nd Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America, the day that hatred manifested itself openly on American soil. I am writing about a now-past football game and the comments made by the showboat coach of the University of Colorado and his son the star quarterback who said to more than one media outlet "We don't like Nebraska." That comment is somewhat toned down from Saturday evening reports that he uttered that he "hated" Neb...
