The first stage of installing the playground equipment included consolidating the parts in one area and marking with caution tape. What that means is the Village of Alvo is not responsible for injuries to anyone who enters the caution area. Also, anyone entering the marked area may be cited for trespassing. Some of the equipment has already been damaged, so that adds vandalism to the possible offences. Parents/guardians, please keep the kids off the equipment. If you see anyone entering the caution area or moving the playground equipment, please call the Cass County Sheriff's Department at 402-296-9370 and report with a date, time and description of whoever is destroying the equipment.

Moisture levels in the soil continue to improve in the drier areas. However, the abnormally dry area moved east from the panhandle to west central counties.
Overall, normal moisture levels increased by almost 6% (5.92%).
Cass County still normal which is good news. I left last week's map for easy comparison. Click on either image for the home page of the UNL drought monitor. If Nebraska had tropical storms and hurricanes instead of earthquake tremors we would have more soil moisture than we need. Click on the upper image for the US drought monitor page and the lower image for the Nebraska page.
