    Middle of nowhere, near the panhandle. Been a long time since I've been out that way.

    Is the managing editor's name really Job Vigil?

    Last real stop of note between Kearney and Cheyenne, Cabela's not withstanding. It's the farthest west of all the Class A (largest of six) schools in Nebraska, so you likely won't see much of Lincoln or Omaha until the postseason.

    NP High has intermittent success. NP St. Pat's is usually pretty good in Class D.

    Sitting at a UCLA football news conference the week of the Nebraska game, looking through the Cornhuskers release, seeing the note that "on game day, the stadium has the third largest population base in the state behind Omaha and Lincoln." That raised the question: Can anybody here name another city in Nebraska? Somebody came up with Norfolk since Johnny Carson was from there. Nobody else could name another city.

    Are there two papers in North Platte?

    How much time do you have? ;D Having spent 20 or so years there, I could probably name you a couple.
  10. I'm a recent grad from there, so I could name a few as well (and even give you the high school mascot as well, gotta love prep calls) but I won't bother.

  12. I knew a hot chick from Blair.
