After several weeks of eager anticipation, the night had finally arrived. It was the first U.S. Senate candidates' debate at the Gering Civic Center.
About 350 people filled the room, but for some reason, I wasn't too nervous and wound up thoroughly enjoying my first public debate.

After the luncheon and a brief talk, I enjoyed touring the new shops in the development, including a flower shop and a grocery store that concentrates on Nebraska-made products . . . which are, of course, the best!
