From the family of fishermen on our cover to the patriotic Beatrice image in our Showcase Shots department toward the end of the magazine, the July/August 2017 issue of Nebraska Life is sure to have you smiling with Nebraska pride. Here’s a brief sampling of what you’ll discover on the pages in between.
Nebraska is well-known as the home of Offutt Air Force Base. Lesser known but also important is the 155th Air Refueling Wing based in Lincoln. Take a ride with these everyday heroes thousands of feet over Nebraska farms and communities. Our photo essay about trees may leave you with a stronger appreciation of the barked and branched neighbors our state hasn’t always been blessed with. We will introduce you to “Terrible” Terry Carpenter. He was highly motivated and terribly determined but not so “terrible.” We’ll dig in plain sight to the root of Grand Island’s beginnings before digging 12 million years into the past at Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park.
Plus, we’ll introduce you to the winner of this issue’s Prettiest Farmhouse contest (it’s a friendly competition), we will make a splash with Nebraska summer trivia, look up at the bighorn sheep in our In The Wild department, window shop for hot-to-the-taste Nebraska Products, get the skinny on our Motorcoach Tours of Western Nebraska, get ready for the total solar eclipse on Aug. 12, salute Beatrice with our Showcase Shots image and find much more in this packed summer issue. Enjoy.
