On the Christian calendar this day is known as "Good Friday," the remembrance of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  On this day God's love for all mankind became obvious.  The story does not end with Christ on the cross, but is followed our remembrance of Easter Sunday in which Christ was resurrected by the power of God.

God's blessing to all this Easter weekend.

[Note: There will not be an issue of LDN on Saturday in observance of Easter weekend.]

Power lines were downed and shingles strewn to the northeast of Lincoln following last night's midnight storm. A wind gust struck the area at 45-50 mph. Storm spotters to the north saw a trailing cloud form a twister that touched down in the area of Kruger elevator. This airplane was damaged by winds at the Logan County Airport.
