Did You Know?The name 'Nebraska' is based on an Oto Indian word Nebrathka meaning 'flat water' (referring to the Platte River, which is also an official symbol of Nebraska). (statesymbolsusa.org)

March 1, 1867 - Nebraska becomes 37th U.S. state

Did You Know? America - Did you know? Punkin Chuckin: Each year, as corn stalks tower toward the sky and leaves turn yellow, orange and red, folks in the United States often flock to farms in order to attend fall festivals. Most of the goings on at these festivals are pretty tame if a little odd-sounding from an outside perspective. Families often participate in activities like going on hayrides, picking out pumpkins, walking through corn mazes, sampling cider, petting barnyard animals, that sort of thing. But what really singles out some of these fall celebrations is the desire harbored by the visitors to witness pumpkins -- harmless lumpy gourds -- blasted into the air and launched great distances across acres of sprawling farmland.
