working together

[JULY 1, 2000]  At the semiannual update meeting of the Healthy Communities Partnership (HCP) on Thursday, Lincoln and Logan County organizations got a pat on the back for their ability to work together to solve problems.

Beason, a peaceful community, set apart from the sprawling metropolises, reserved for folks who want a quieter afternoon. Recently, though, construction noise has broken the stillness as work began last week on the erection of a new grain bin at East Lincoln Farmers Grain Company Beason Elevator.

A crew of about a dozen started in on the construction. In just a few days, they finished the foundation and the roof for the bin. In the construction of the walls of the bin, the roof will be hoisted off the foundation and rings of metal walling will be added. Brad Schuette, location manager at the Beason elevator, said that the erection is scheduled to take two to three weeks. When complete, the bin will be 70 feet tall, 90 feet in diameter, and hold 416,000 bushels.



The bin will be the largest bin to date at the Beason Elevator. Smaller bins already at the facility hold 250,000, and larger bins hold 275,000 bushels.

The bin will be used to store soy beans. Storage area for beans at the site previously ran short, prompting the need for the new bin. Thinking of one for the backyard? The total cost for materials and construction: $500,000.

A perfect summer day, sunny skies, warm weather and swimming Lap swimmers enjoy their daily routine at the Lincoln Recreation Center.
