Thank you, Nebraska TU!

I was thrilled to look at the front page of the Omaha World-Herald last Friday and see this story, http://www.omaha.com/article/20130531/NEWS/705319908/1016#volunteers-keep-nebraska-trout-stream-the-perfect-spot-to-spawn .  I would post a copy here, but I am sure the World-Herald would rather have you go to their website and read it.  Doooo it!
