Thanks for coming
A big thank you to the community and all who flew in for making the Fly-In Breakfast at the Tekamah Airport a huge success and thanks to the Tekamah Volunteer Fire Department for serving a great breakfast.
We also want to thank Masters Hand for donating her famous cinnamon rolls, Denny Westergard and Doug Pollock for parking the airplanes and those who donated the use of the tables.
All proceeds were donated to the fire department.
Look forward to seeing you next year!

A call to compliance
Most citizens do appreciate a “tidy town.” Recently, there has been a renewed interest in ordinance/code compliance—or the lack thereof.
Dealing with enforcement can be difficult for our authorities when it comes to fairness. Yet, living within the pressures of a communal society, all are to accept a certain degree of collective order to follow.
Certain offending citizens are of their opinion that ordinances are for others to obey and follow. That leads to a dangerous self attitude when it infringes on the rights and protections of others.
The enforcement actions come with their own set of difficulties, that is, being strictly enforced to the point of harassment. Or to the point of looking-the-other-way leniency.
Viewing the bigger overall picture of enforcement, dealing with civil, legal statutes, even criminal actions, where and when do our authorities proceed leniently or strictly on compliance?
Therefore, the final question. Are we as citizens over-regulated or under-protected relating to the subject of enforcement—or the lack of it?
