A central feature to Cottonmill Park is the 43 acre lake. Originally created in 1886 by filling the Kearney Canal, the lake acted as a storage reservoir that generated power for the old Cottonmill factory. In 1998 with funding from the Nebraska Environmental Trust Fund, Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality and the Central Platte Natural Resource District, Cottonmill Lake underwent a complete restoration specifically to create a top quality fishing lake.

Moving in with your partner?! Congratulations! Other than not stepping on each other’s toes when you first move in together, the most important thing to focus on is money. No matter how much you love your partner and trust them, you always have to be smart about your bank account and credit. Here are three things to lookout for —
Talk about money
Know how much you both can afford with it comes to rent and INCLUDE the expenses for utilities. Can you afford cable or will you only have enough for internet and stick to Netflix? Make sure that you both know what kind of prices you can handle and figure out if you should split the cost, or if someone is able to pay a little more. Get it in writing.
Keep your finances separate
A joint account may seem like the smart thing to do – BUT if heaven forbid you break up, that is one more thing to deal with. Keep your finances separate – or – get a joint account that is solely used for bills. You can each deposit the set amount that is owed each month without the hassle.
Put both of your names on the lease
Again, if you guys were to break up, it is better to have both names on the lease rather than one. You don’t want to leave the payments up to your partner if you are to move out – and vice versa. If it doesn’t work out, you’re both able go to the landlord and figure out next steps.
While you’re apartment hunting it is important to know that there are key factors that may raise the price of your monthly rent. Here the scoop—
1. Living near an interstate
If living near the interstate or a highway is important to you, then the added cost of having an apartment a mile or so away from one may drive the cost of your rent up.
The convenience of having an elevator in your building can still be pretty costly. On average, Priceonomics estimates that an elevator will add $120 to your monthly rent.
3. Fitness center
Priceonomics’ study shows that people pay an average of $90 a month for a fitness center, so if working out in your own building isn’t all that important to you, consider spending your money elsewhere.
4. Laundry in building

Wednesday, July 26 • 2:00 p.m.
Author Ann Matzke, who specializes in writing for children and young adults, was the Library Media Specialist for Shelton, North Platte, and Gothenburg Public Schools from 2004 to 2010, and Children’s Director of the Wilson Public Library in Cozad from 2011 to 2015. While in Cozad, she began researching the lives of artists Robert Henri and Eulabee Dix, producing a book on Henri, with another currently in progress on Dix. Her research led her to New York City where both artists knew each other socially and professionally. Dix was the subject of two full-length portraits painted by Henri with one, Portrait of Miss Eulabee Dix (Becker) in Wedding Gown, on display at MONA. During her presentation, the author will share biographical information discovered during her research, and explain the manuscript writing process.
Whether you just moved out of your parents’ house, fresh out of a relationship – or even your college dorm room, living alone can be a little scary. Here are 5 tips to not only keep you safe but also help you enjoy your solitude —
- Grocery Shop for One:
Shopping and cooking for one may be new to you. Ditch the ramen and google some recipes for one or invest in a pinterest. You don’t want to waste money on groceries that will go bad because you can’t get to them in time.
2. Make It Your Own
This is the first time that you are really able to make a place your own, GO CRAZY! Spend an entire day at IKEA putting together your dream apartment. You want to make your house feel like home, not a motel room.
3. Keep It Tidy
You may not have anyone there to yell at you to clean up, but that doesn’t mean you should live in filth. Keeping a clean home helps you have a clear mind.
4. Look for Extra Security
One lock may not be enough, invest in a deadbolt or even a taser. It is important that you feel safe in your own home whether it’s coming or going or even just living! But that doesn’t mean that you should live in fear. Be confident and comfortable in your own space.
5. Remember, You’re Not Alone
Invest time getting to know your neighbors, having your friends over and GOING OUT! Don’t keep yourself cooped up without any interaction or you’ll go crazy! Show your place off, but remember not to bring a date over until you know its serious to keep yourself safe.
