´An utter disaster´:
Ag losses from Nebraska flooding
could top $1 billion

Omaha World-Herald, by Marjie Ducey

Original Article

Posted By:rosefenn, 3/19/2019 6:36:28 PM

One day, Anthony Ruzicka says, he had everything. The next, the Spencer Dam broke and a wall of water and ice decimated his 2,000-acre property along the Niobrara River. And the five-generation family of cattle ranchers had nothing. “It’s just an utter disaster,’’ said Ruzicka, who lives there with his parents, Willard and Denise. “I would call it hell.’’

Comments:
The devastation of what has happened in the last week here in Nebraska defies description.

They still have the land, don´t they? They´re still alive. They have a lot.

I drive from KC to Omaha area to shoot rifle matches and visit friends with some regularity. That I-29 corridor runs along side the Missouri River for a long way, and has flooded out the interstate several times in the last decade or so.
The smart folks build in the higher ground, to the east side of I-29 on the east side of the river, and on the steeper bluffs on the west side. Lots and lots of farm land along there, but very few houses west of the interstate, because they know it WILL flood with some regularity.

Not a good thing, of course, but it is certainly not very unusual. It is called "bottom land" for a reason. It is in the river bottom, which floods regularly, and has very rich soil because of it.

I´ll bet that Iowa and Nebraska will be OK, once the snow melts is through.

Farming and ranching are a great risk. Most small farmers can´t make it just farming. Most have other jobs as well. My heart goes out to these farmers and ranchers. Again, this disaster shows the mamouth failure of big government. Obama blew a trillion dollars which was supposed to go improving infrastrucure. Very little of it actually did. Now, this bloated government wants more money for the same problem. I say, block grant the money to states and keep the fed out of it.

At least this flooding didn´t happen in, say, August, right before harvest. They have about 2 months before planting, I bet they can still have a good year.

I don´t know about the livestock losses, but insurance should cover that.

Maybe if the money spend coddling illegal aliens was spent on infrastructure, wouldn´t have this problem.

I have been in contact with a friend who lives just south of Omaha. He is on high ground, but things are a real mess.

Roads and bridges are damaged in many areas, will take a while to repair after the waters recede.

The good news is that there is likely to be a shortage of ethanol, so we may be "forced" to drive with sober gas for a while. Our engines will be happier.

Florida, with its plentiful beaches, warm weather, and lack of a state income tax, is the most popular destination for older adults in the U.S. But some who have lived in the Sunshine State for years are moving in the opposite direction. As damaging storms and other effects of climate change have hit Florida particularly hard in the past few years, some older adults living there have become concerned about their safety and their ability to enjoy retirement. So they’re fleeing this otherwise balmy state. About 52,630 people ages 65 and over left Florida in 2017, versus 48,174 in

If you love Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and want to help the ACLU, you can raise a glass of Sam Adams. Boston Beer Co. will release next week “When There Are Nine,” a Belgian Brut IPA dedicated to the jurist and liberal rock star, according to a Thursday report in the Boston Globe. The title is “inspired by her famous response to the question ‘When will there be enough women on the Supreme Court?’” the company wrote at an Eventbrite page announcing the launch.(Snip) According to the Globe, the Ginsburg-inspired beer is a “pink boots release,” an annual nonprofit

Barbra Streisand says Michael Jackson’s

Barbra Streisand is under fire for comments she made about two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children. The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

The San Antonio City Council banned Chick-fil-A from San Antonio International Airport over “anti-LGBTQ behavior” as part of a new concession plan for the airport. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño motioned to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère for the airport Thursday on condition Chick-fil-A be excluded from the agreement. Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport. (Snip) the restaurant would have liked to have had a dialogue with it prior to the decision.

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

The Washington National Cathedral disputed President Trump´s claim that he had to "approve" the funeral of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). "Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased; only a state funeral for a former president involves consultation with government officials," a cathedral spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday. "No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official," he added.

This spelling and grammar test from the 1980s is so difficult that it is claimed no one can get more than 50 per cent of the answers right. The 20-question quiz promises to leave even the brightest brains scratching their heads. Indeed it is so tricky that its creator, Playbuzz user Terry Stein, claims players will ´never´ be able to score more than 10 out of 20. So if you think you have what it takes then scroll down to take the test in full. But the answers are at the bottom - so no cheating...

A few months ago, Colton Haas and I traveled to the once beautiful city of San Francisco, hoping to have a question answered: What happened to San Francisco? (Video) Erica Sandberg, a community advocate and journalist, broke it down for us: "Right now the major issue — people always call it homelessness — but the major issue is drugs." While San Francisco has always battled homelessness and currently has about 7,000 homeless people, the drug issue is exacerbating the problem. The city currently hands out more than 400,000 syringes each month but only 246,000 are returned, leaving 154,000 syringes left

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump. No indictment of anyone associated with the campaign or the administration to support

Hours after New Zealand announced prohibitions against semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) tweeted the U.S. needs to follow the gun ban example. Feinstein tweeted: “In country after country, massacres are followed by sweeping changes to gun laws, as logic would dictate. The United States needs to follow these examples and take action to protect Americans from this deadly public health scourge.” She attached a statement to her tweet wherein she noted: Here at home in America, since the 1999 shooting at Columbine High School, we’ve suffered through at least 227 school shootings that killed 143 and left

MSNBC’s top Russiagate conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow burst into tears on Friday — after the past two years of her reporting was revealed to be nonsense.On Friday, it was revealed that there would be no more indictments from Robert Mueller’s office, sealed or otherwise, which completely contradicts the tall tales that she has been selling her viewers. Barely holding it together, Maddow emotionally explained that she is on a fishing trip in Tennessee and came into a studio — despite having had the day off. (Videos/Tweets) Clinging to absolutely anything to avoid apologizing for her bogus reporting, Maddow claimed that

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” House Intelligence Committee and Judiciary Committee member Eric Swalwell (D-CA) stated that he doesn’t think he or the majority of his colleagues will accept a report “unless its veracity is testified to by Bob Mueller.”Swalwell began by saying, “[T]he American people will see every word, every comma, every period of this report. The president is outnumbered now in a way that he was not before.” He added, “Second, I don’t think I, and most of my colleagues, will accept a report unless its veracity is testified to by Bob Mueller.
