Nebraska Extension in Lincoln, Logan & McPherson Counties

Local Interest

Sunshine and warm days should make it easy to get up and get active.  It is recommended that children get 60 minutes or more of physical activity every day. This can be challenging as screen time competes with outdoor playtime. So, a plan may be needed.

 

Some communities develop new opportunities by adding extra programs during the summer months.  Summer camps offer unique opportunities to participate in a variety of activities including sports, arts and crafts. Museums, parks, zoos, aquariums and other local attractions can keep the mind and body moving.

 

Adults play a big role in helping children develop healthy habits, so make summer activities a family affair.

It's extremely important to note that no two operations or rental agreements are exactly alike. Those rents on either end of the range probably have some special circumstances. production potential likley varies greatly on these rent extreames.

Educate Yourself and Save a Life

 

Over 114,000 Americans are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant.  Each year, that number on the waiting list continues to grow much larger than the number of donors.  Nearly 500 of those people live right here in Nebraska.  Statistically, 50 of them will die without receiving their needed life-saving procedure.

 

Even though 95% of adults in the United States support organ donation, only 54% actually sign up to do it, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
