“It’s a good community, it hasn’t gotten the breaks that it should.
This could be a lot more prosperous town than what it is. It’s been kinda held down by certain…oh, just certain factors. It’s still a good little town to raise a family in.

There’s still some stuff here that makes it ok… Sears opened up again out over here in the south part of town. Unfortunately, there’s just not a lot for kids to grow up and stick around for. They have to go to Omaha or Lincoln, even Grand Island and Carney to find jobs.
We’ve got two good schools here, but when the majority of those kids graduate,
there’s just nothing here for them to stay.”
