A+ Nebraska Game & Parks Commission. Thank you for bringing a Community Fishing Night last week to American Heroes Park. It’s a great thing for the kids and their families, and I hope it becomes an annual event.

B July 5. It’s the day after the Fourth, and that means the Black Cats and whistlers and those illegal M-80s will be done for the year.

F Youth sports parents missing the point. It only takes one irate dad or crazed mom to ruin what should be a memorable experience not only for their boys and girls, but also for the teammates of their children. Does it really matter if Johnny is called out at first in a coach-pitch game? Does it really matter if the coach — the volunteer coach, most likely — pinch-hits for your Susie in the U-10 game? Your job as parents and grandparents is to encourage the kids, tell them good job or nice try, then give ‘em a hug after the game.
