Governor Heineman needs a lesson in strong leadership. Recently, at the Farmers Union Convention in Grand Island, the Governor spoke to farmers and then opened the room up to questions from the audience.  I was at the meeting to visit with farmers and to listen to the panel about the pipeline.  So, when Heineman asked […]
