Stories from the latest edition:

We profile the latest inductee of the Nebraska Hall of Fame - Alvin Saunders Johnson. Born in 1874 near Homer, Neb., Johnson’s life is an epic tale of achievement. Educated in a one-room school, the humble son of Nebraska farmers went on to earn a Ph.D. in economics.   In 1923, Johnson became the first president of New York’s legendary New School University. A decade later he established the University in Exile to save the lives of European Jewish intellectuals suffering under the rise of Nazism.

When Elizabeth King lost her dream job she did what any young, independent woman would do – packed her sports car and headed for the big city. Which city? Why the home of The Grand Ole Opry, Nashville, Tenn., where she not only met country legends, but the love of her life.

Hop in a jam-packed van and travel back into “deep time” with a group of adventurous school teachers as they broaden their understanding of geology while discovering what really drives learning, and meet Sheridan Swotek, a young student who’s hoping her innovative 4-H project will put her on track to receive the organization's highest recognition.
