plant on city agenda again
14, 2000] If
Lincoln and New Holland approve its requests, Spectrum Energy Inc.
hopes to break ground for its electricity generating plant near New
Holland sometime in October, Matthew Hortenstine, attorney for the
group, told the Lincoln City Council at its work session Tuesday
evening. Called a "peaker plant," the three small
generators would run only at peak times when demands for electricity
exceed the amount of power that is available from the current grid.

your PC – Part 3
14, 2000] The
Internet has enhanced and blessed the lives of many. The ability to communicate
and obtain information in an instant without great expense has brought even
long-term computer holdouts and computer deniers to purchase systems to gain
access to the great riches offered on the net. And internet users have found one
other blessing of the internet age: access to the treasure of their imaginations

the love of Pete...it’s only
14, 2000] Now
that the fall sports season is upon us here in Lincoln and Logan County, I
thought it might be good to review why sports programs even exist to begin with.
I should point out that I am not an expert in this field.
I am not a sports psychologist, although I’d love to play one on
television. I have no credentials.
I am not endorsed or sanctioned by the ISHA, the NCAA (thank God, talk
about the kiss of death...) or the NBA. I
have never received expressed written consent for any accounts or depictions of
any games by Major League Baseball. However,
I do think I have as much experience in this one little area of life and more
than most of my 40-plus-year-old counterparts.
I have noticed a disturbing national trend when it comes to scholastic
sports competition. Before we begin
covering this year’s plethora of games in our region, the LDN will try to
remind athletes, coaches, parents and fans the reasons that we participate.
I hope that from this point on, Lincoln will be known as the town that
bucked the trend...that in our area, kids learned the fundamentals, developed
character and skills like teamwork, and also that they had a lot of fun along
hosts Parkland for volleyball
14, 2000] Lincoln
College’s volleyball team lost to Parkland College of Champaign yesterday
(Wednesday). The game scores were 15-8, 15-2 and 15-9. Coach Tina Roger-Smith
defended her Lady Lynx, saying, "We actually are making progress. We played
pretty well with the exception of our serving. We simply had trouble getting our
serves in for points. We sided out well, we just couldn’t score. The scores
don’t really reflect the closeness of the match."
