July 12
At about 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 11 a small plane force-landed approximately one mile north of the Logan County Airport on Interstate 55 near Kruger Elevator.

At the Tuesday evening meeting of the Lincoln City Council, Phil Gillen and Steve Shoemaker came before the council seeking permission to build a concrete landing strip for radio controlled airplanes at the Lincoln Soccer Complex. Gillen said that the Lincoln Futball Club is supportive of the request and that the group seeking to build the landing strip will pay for having it installed. The strip will be 15 to 20 feet wide and about 100 feet long. It will be placed along the edge of the front parking lot at the complex, so it may also be used for parking during soccer season.

The council supported the request but did ask that the LFC submit a letter, putting it in writing that they also support the request.

City Building and Safety Officer Wes Woodhall asked that the group consult with him on the construction of the pad because if it is to also be used for parking, the concrete will have to be of a specific depth and there will have to be an approach for smooth transition from the current parking surface to the concrete.

Oasis Senior Center Executive Director Nancy Cunningham (blue vest) accepts a donation for the Oasis Food Pantry from members of the staff at Generations skilled nursing facility in Lincoln. The gift comes to the Oasis at a critical time of year. During the summer months many grandparents provide care services for grandchildren. That means extra food consumed at mealtime. The Oasis food pantry operates year round, but according to Cunningham gets very low in stock in the summer months, so the donation came to the senior center at just the right time.
