A word to the wise - if you don't have a written burn permit signed by the Fire Chief, Assistant Chief or Firefighter, you can't legally burn. Text messages or verbal cell phone requests do NOT give you permission to burn. Chief's cell - 402-326-1714; Asst. Chief's cell - 402-867-4291 Training Officer's cell - 402-432-5018 Arrange a time to come to the Fire Station at 135 Main Street in Alvo and pick up your permit. Burning without a permit is a Class IV misdemeanor.
Nebraska 63 construction from Alvo south to US 34 is continuing, even in the rain - watch for construction people and equipment. Plan on delays due to single lane traffic with a pilot car. Also, traffic on 1st, Main and 2nd will increase due to the contractor loading their water supply truck at the 2nd and Main hydrant. Keep your eyes off the smartphone and on the road, please
This is one holiday Karen and I are glad is over.
Alvo didn't have any fireworks injruies that anyone admitted over the weekend, but Lincoln did - here's the link to that article. (Her picture is pretty graphic.)

Events during this week in history - with a little humor thrown in.

July 8th is Video Games Day.
July 9th, 1868 - The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified. The amendment was designed to grant citizenship to and protect the civil liberties of recently freed slaves. It did this by prohibiting states from denying or abridging the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States, depriving any person of his life, liberty, or property without due process of law, or denying to any person within their jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
July 9th is Sugar Cookie Day.
July 10th, 1998 - The U.S. military delivered the remains of Air Force 1st Lt. Michael Blassie to his family in St. Louis. He had been placed in Arlington Cemetery's Tomb of the Unknown in 1984. His identity had been confirmed with DNA tests.

July 12th, 1954 - U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower proposed a highway modernization program, with costs to be shared by federal and state governments. This proposal established the Interstate Highway system.
July 13th, 1954 - In Geneva, the United States, Great Britain and France reached an accord on Indochina which divided Vietnam into two countries, North and South, along the 17th parallel. Look how well that worked out.
