Ballot Issues Education For The 2008 General Election, J. David Aiken, Bradley D. Lubben Jan 2008

Ballot Issues Education For The 2008 General Election, J. David Aiken, Bradley D. Lubben

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Nebraska communities attempt to attract new employers to the community often by providing economic incentives to the new business: direct loans or grants, infrastructure improvements (roads, power, sewer lines, etc.), purchasing real estate, and job training grants. Communities can respond more quickly to new business development opportunities if the community has a pool of community development funds available for immediate use. The 1991 Nebraska Local Option Municipal Economic Development Act allows Nebraska cities and villages to create such a fund after preparing a community economic development plan, receiving voter approval and with continuing citizen review board oversight.1 Under current ...

On November 4, 2008, Nebraska voters will consider an amendment to the state constitution to ban many state or local government affirmative action programs (unless pending court challenges nullify the vote). The proposed constitutional amendment was brought forth by petition initiative and is modeled after similar language approved by voters in California (1996), Washington (1998), and Michigan (2006). Voters in Colorado will also face the same question this year on election day while similar efforts in Arizona, Missouri, and Oklahoma failed to reach the ballot.

When volatile flavors are retained food has a much better flavor. Freeze concentration of fruit juices is a method of removing water from juices without heating and changing juice flavor. Freeze concentration is effective because a solute in solution has a lower ...

Nf05-592 Both Partners Are Responsible For The Relationship, Kathy Bosch Jan 2005

Nf05-592 Both Partners Are Responsible For The Relationship, Kathy Bosch

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Both partners in a marriage are equally responsible for nurturing the relationship and "keeping the spark alive." Too often society has placed this responsibility on the woman when it should be equally shared. Women often have accepted the "caretaker" role partially because of their connectedness with children and family; however, both partners have a great stake in the well-being of the marriage and should care deeply about keeping the relationship viable and healthy. One person cannot strengthen the relationship alone. It takes two working together to strengthen the partner relationship.
