State of Nebraska, Department of Roads has over 900 clean up areas including ours. We have been cleaning our area since 1998. Over 1,770 miles of highway are cleaned up across Nebraska.
Denise and Natalie described how Adopt a Highway started talking in Tyler Texas with one man asking his boss and service club to pick up litter.
The Department of Roads thanks Kiwanis Club of Greater Omaha for our clean up efforts.

Did you know that kids' cancers are different from adult cancers? It's true. And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So I decided to do something about it by raising money for cures. Now I need your help! Will you make a donation? Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers.
You can also give check or cash donations.
A little bit more about St. Baldrick's: Worldwide events have raised approximately $150 million, providing research grants to doctors and scientists at more than 200 institutions. These funds enable them to pursue the most promising new cures for childhood cancer, in addition to making clinical trials available to more children than ever. Since 2000, St. Baldrick’s has hosted more than 5,500 head-shaving events, shaving more than 244,000 heads in 30 countries and 50 U.S. states. To join the fun and learn more about the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, visit www.StBaldricks.org or call 888.889.BALD. Thank you for your support.

Andy is part of the economic development team. Growing the entire area, not just Omaha.
The partnership includes having offices in downtown.
Andy works with business from all around the country looking at this area to locate.
Prosper Omaha is the current fundraising campaign. $23 million is the target. Retention, expanding, enterpruership, and moving. Target are agricultural, military, financial, and more to be added.
Andy works finding local incentives to match up with the needs of that company.
Our business climate needs an industrial park. Need to focus on redevelopment of Eastern Omaha. Brand management. And legislation.
Talent development is important. Attraction and retention.
Thanks Andy for the update on new business development in Omaha.
