It’s another go around for Northwest Public School tax payers when it comes to the potential of adding a middle school to the district. 10 years ago a bond was brought to the votes for a middle school but was voted down. This time cost has increased, putting the bond up for voters at 11.5 million dollars. With most decisions when it comes to voting there are pluses and minuses, those that are in favor, and those that are not. Many are in favor of a middle school, but how it should happen is another issue.


According to the Northwest Middle School now website, for students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade are only offered curriculum options in tech, band, and choir. If a Class B size middle school was built or implemented 12 more extra options would be added.


Below listen to KRGI News report of this issue and the decisions that taxpayers are facing when heading to the polls.

Jake Owen and Kane Brown will headline the 2019 US Cellular Summer Jam Concert Series in 2019. Owen will lead off on Friday, June 21st, with Brown closing Nebraska’s Official State Celebration on Saturday, June 22nd.

Owen has had seven number 1 singles to date, including his latest, “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)”. His other six number ones include the 2X PLATINUM anthem “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,”
PLATINUM-certified hits “Beachin’,” “Anywhere with You,” “Alone with You,” “The One That Got Away,” and, GOLD-certified “American Country Love Song.” Owen's fifth studio album, AMERICAN LOVE, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country

Albums chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart. Most recently, Owen signed a new label deal with Big Loud Records, reuniting him with award-winning producer Joey Moi. Owen’s debut single for Big Loud, “I Was Jack (You Were Diane),” was the most-added single at country radio for two consecutive weeks and the fastest rising single of his career. Owen and Moi are currently in the studio working on the forthcoming project. 

Brown recently announced plans for his first ever headlining tour, the Kane Brown Live Forever Tour, as well as the track listing and album preorder information for his new album Experiment. Noted by the New York Times as “one of Nashville’s most promising young stars and also one of its most flexible,” Brown
continues to shatter records and his “Lose It” was just selected to be spotlighted in Amazon Music’s brand-new advertising campaign A Voice is All You Need which also includes hits from Ariana Grande, Kendrick Lamar, SZA and Queen. Additionally,
Brown was just named as an official New Era brand ambassador for their 2018-2019 NFL football season and seasonal ad campaign which is a first ever for a country artist. Brown also recently received word of his three 2018 American Music Awards nominations, which make him the most nominated artist in this
year’s AMA Country Categories.

“We’ve had really good success with our concert series featuring artists from a couple of different points in their careers,” said NEBRASKAland DAYS Executive Director David Fudge. “Jake’s been around for over a decade and has a proven track record in the industry, while Kane is one of the most
exciting new artists in the industry. We’re really pleased with how this worked out.”

Opening acts will be announced in the near future.
Tickets for both concerts will be priced at $99 for Golden Circle, $79 for Party Pit, and $49 for GA. Combo passes, which give the ticket holder entry to both shows, will be $88. NEBRASKAland DAYS

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — A 24-year-old has been given 85 to 110 years in prison for beating to death a man at a Grand Island park.

Hall County District Court records say Ahmed Said was sentenced Tuesday. He'd been convicted in June of second-degree murder and use of a weapon. Court records say he fatally beat 41-year-old Abdulma Khamis on April 12 last year at Pioneer Park.

A portion of the crime was captured on security video from a nearby car dealership.

GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — Democratic Lincoln City Councilwoman Jane Raybould has accused U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer of allegedly serving the interests of the Republican Party and its donors over the needs of most Nebraska residents.

The two U.S. Senate candidates discussed trade, health care, immigration and taxes at a Monday debate in Grand Island.

Raybould called Fischer "corrupt," citing her support for insurance companies, railroads and cable companies. She says Fischer has received $120,000 from health care companies and pharmaceutical companies. Raybould's campaign says the city councilwoman doesn't accept donations from corporate political action committees.

Fischer says the accusations are out of desperation. She emphasized her independence as a lawmaker and her ability to find bipartisan solutions to problems. Fischer also highlighted her efforts supporting road work, paid family leave and national security.

In the course of the contact with the Suspect; 24 year old Jorje Robledo, a gunfight ensued. Initially, during the conflict, Robledo was armed with a handgun.
