Pansing Brooks assist

How refreshing it was to hearken to a Congressional candidate who prioritizes the necessity for bipartisanship to unravel points dealing with Nebraska. Thanks, Patty Pansing Brooks for placing drawback fixing forward of a political occasion. We’d like extra politicians with that angle. I’m tried of all of the bantering and bashing. Folks don’t care what occasion you might be from in the event you problem-solve points!

Nebraska’s quiet magnificence

Nebraska’s magnificence is just not that of California, which grabs us and sweeps us off our ft with its roaring surf, palm timber, mountains and Hollywood Hills. Nebraska’s is a quiet magnificence, one which requires an individual to decelerate and take it in and mirror. It could simply be taken without any consideration. I’ve usually thought that there’s a phase of Nebraskans who, deep down, have a kind of inferiority advanced concerning the state, which then makes it troublesome to market a story of Nebraska as a stunning, pleasant vacation spot, value flying to slightly than flying over.

Individuals are additionally studying…

As somebody who has traveled to all continents of the world, I’ve usually encountered folks in remote locations who knew one thing of Nebraska and thought it an attention-grabbing place. A good friend in Italy, for instance, had dreamed of transferring to Nebraska lengthy earlier than we coincidentally met on social media. A stroll on a California seaside serendipitously introduced me right into a dialog with a California native who informed me she and her boyfriend had simply been considering of transferring to Nebraska. Mates of mine from Alabama love visiting Omaha through the Berkshire Hathaway conferences. A German I met in Argentina was already conscious of Nebraska Metropolis (my hometown) as a spot of rolling hills and apple orchards.

Certainly, I’d place my hometown on a sunny autumn day as one of the vital stunning small cities on the planet. And there are attention-grabbing, shocking locations throughout this huge state that many individuals would wish to expertise if we may make them conscious of them.

Go away, reside and be taught

I lately learn an opinion piece from the present governor of Nebraska asking latest graduates to “put roots down within the Good Life.” As a graduate of Alliance Excessive College and somebody who may solely afford one 12 months on the College of Nebraska, I ask all graduates to go away Nebraska earlier than placing down roots anyplace.

The issues that plagues this state is not going to be resolved by Nebraskans who keep in Nebraska. The most effective of our tradition is just not what we’ve grown up with dwelling in our small cities with individuals who look and suppose like we have been raised. After my one 12 months at UNL, I moved to Colorado and started my profession. I realized about how various this nation actually is and obtained ability units that aren’t taught anyplace within the Nebraska Panhandle, permitting me to work remotely and nonetheless not put down my roots within the “Good Life.”

Decreasing property taxes — as the rich present governor consistently beats the drum of — is just not how Nebraska brings again expert labor leaving in droves. Nebraska added 135,163 folks from 2010 to 2020. There are over 117,000 folks in Colorado who have been born in Nebraska, myself and plenty of of my household included. Studying to embrace variety in all facets of life and never dwelling prior to now is the one technique to convey your youngsters again to the state.

Till then, the providers wanted to assist the poorest of Nebraskans will endure whereas one political occasion drums up uneducated fears of undocumented employees pouring over the border taking jobs, spending half a billion {dollars} on the lie that Colorado is stealing 90% of our water, or a concern {that a} trans-person is in your restroom. Get out and be taught concerning the world that’s outdoors our Midwest and Nice Plains hometowns.

Ridiculous property taxes

The letter from Dick Wilson titled “Greater Tax Chew to Come,” has prompted me to talk up, as nicely. We, too, have lately acquired the unwelcome information of our present property valuation. Though not as drastic because the one for Dick Wilson, however, it’s outrageous. The private property assessments and taxes in Douglas County are unacceptable. I will need to have been dreaming when candidates have been campaigning for a seat within the Nebraska Legislature. I believed I heard a number of folks discuss lowering taxes in Nebraska, after which we get this information within the mail. Nothing has been carried out to cease the native authorities from profiting from Nebraska residents.

I understand that the letter clearly states that it is just an announcement of our property evaluation. I made a decision to get on-line to take a look at the present tax levy. It actually must be no shock that the speed seems to have additionally grown larger. I’m shocked that anybody would wish to come reside on this state however then the taxes on this state aren’t broadly publicized. We’ve got obtained to cease these ridiculous taxes. They’re particularly dangerous to these on a hard and fast revenue.
