Building a sod house
Last week I wrote about a Bank of True Love valentine from Marjorie Boynton Cross. Below are the sod house and Bondville blizzard letters I mentioned. “You wonder how a house can be built of sod. The ground here in places is covered very thickly with a coarse grass and the soil which is a black clay is filled with roots which make it very tough – there is no gravel or stones in it. They break it about 4 inches thick and 14 or 16 inches wide then cut with a spade about 2 feet or more in length.

Nebraska proposes taxes on skill game machines
Nebraska lawmakers have advanced a bill that would increase taxes on skill video gaming machines in convenience stores and bars.
