Great tour of housing needs in Gage County sponsored by NGage, attended by my staff. Part of the reason more housing is needed is due to the creativity and work ethic of Dist. 30! Several small businesses ship their products worldwide, while others employ hundreds of people! Pictured: new fireworks warehouse in Cortland, and "where the best tasting water in Nebraska" is stored (Cortland water tower); a new community fitness building near the highly ranked Diller-Odell High School, and the historic Rice Bed and Breakfast in Odell. We also stopped at the Arbor State Pharmacy and Diane's Dresses in Wymore!
