Aurora Child Care center up to 72 kids PDF E-mail

Nearly two years after opening the doors of the Aurora Child Care center, director Lisa Kluck said there is still some room at the inn.

The facility opened in October 2009 with 33 kids enrolled and six full-time staff members. Today there are 72 kids enrolled with 11 full-time and four part-time staff members providing quality care. Things are going well, Kluck said, but there is room for more, especially older, full-time children.

"Our biggest demand right now is the infant room and for that age group you can only have four kids per staff member," Kluck noted. "There seems to be an ongoing need for more infant care, both in our facility and with in-home care providers. Our room is licensed to have up to 12 infants and a lot of the calls we have been getting are for that 18 months and under age group."

I-80 bridge project slows traffic to 1 lane PDF E-mail

Construction at Aurora’s I-80 interchange is causing a “minor inconvenience” for motorists, though businesses in the area say it is having little effect on their bottom lines thus far.
The Nebraska Department of Roads is now in the midst of repairing the existing Highway 14 bridge surface over the interstate and will eventually put on a new concrete overlay and replace the pavement approaches. The $298,000 project will include some repair work on the columns supporting the bridge as well.
“There hasn’t been much effect, yet,” reported Mark Perez, general manager of Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores. “Even when it first started (June 13) our numbers were still going up. After the holiday it might slow down, so here in the next couple of weeks we’ll be able to tell more.”

Farmers begin tornado clean-up PDF E-mail

Crops were gnawed off, irrigation pipe was bent around trees or scattered across fields, and sheds and grain bins were damaged, but a major sentiment from farmers and emergency personnel regarding the June 20 tornadoes near Hampton was that it could’ve been worse.

"There was quite a bit of damage, but luckily no one was hurt," Hamilton County Emergency Management director Kirt Smith said. "Our dispatchers, law enforcement and emergency personnel did a great job. We’re blessed it wasn’t any worse than what it was."
