That picture there is the beginnings of the paved section of the Jamaica North trail next to my house. Fuggles looks a little bummed cuz we are not moving. Since the ground has been wet all winter we have not gotten out on the trails much and I just run her on the newly paved 4th street many times a week as long as it is not icy or freezing cold.
The trail is getting really close to being done. I am very excited to have it on my block. I will use the crap out of it.
The Beatrice City Council recently voted to accept the donation of an 8.5-mile abandoned railroad corridor from Pickrell to Cortland from the Nebraska Trails Foundation, thus acquiring the last unfinished stretch of trail from Lincoln to Beatrice.
â€œWe charged them the ridiculous price of one dollar,â€ said Ross Greathouse, president of the Nebraska Trails Council, which started the foundation.
Greathouse said he actually gave the city $10 out of his own pocket to complete the transaction. He joked that Beatrice officials made money on the deal because they didnâ€™t give him change.
