Starting off today with a big tip, much respect, and nothing but love for my brother, Bruce Newton.  One of the many firefighters to battle the epic M’s Pub blaze.  Worked in the sub zero conditions from 3 am to 6 am.  Home for 1 hour of sleep and then to church at 8:00.  I salute all service personnel as heroes!

Getting along.  Working together.  The intricate equation of egos, agendas, and complex personalities has struck a chord of harmony.  Individuals from across the spectrum are coming together in ways never seen before in Nebraska.  It used to be like Pecos Bill wrestlin a tornado around here.  Something  has changed though, we can all feel it, that positive air.  But what really has changed?  The mindset of adult runners in Nebraska.  Coming together.
