Q: I grew up in a very dysfunctional home. My parents hurt me in many ways. But now they’re aging and losing the ability to look after themselves. Given the past, I’m not sure how I feel about caring for them. What’s my obligation here?
"Duty, honor, country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.

The Good Life we all enjoy is made possible by the courageous men and women in blue. After traveling the state for the past 7 ½ years as Governor, I know Nebraskans appreciate all that law enforcement does to keep them safe.

As Nebraskans know well, we are the beef state. We have every segment of the supply chain from cowcalf producers, to backgrounders, to large and small feed yards and also three of the four big packers in the state. The livestock industry contributes $13.8 billion to Nebraska’s economy annually. It is without a doubt the economic engine of our state.
