I’m Nate Jacks, the Commissioner of the Heartland Baseball League of Nebraska. We have a team in the community called Millard Moose. We play games on Sundays and practice twice a week. Our players are the age 17-40, most are college students playing with us for the summer. We have accomplished our goal as a very unique league. We have sent 4 players to the professional levels this year, before the Major League drafts.

We would like to use one of the baseball fields every Sunday. We would be honored to play there and make this our home field until November 2014 and every year around this time. We take pride in our community and we are happy to be your professional development team in town. We will take care of the fields after we use them and pick up the trash, drag the fields and clean the place up. Please go check out our wonderful league at our website. or call us at our office: 402-464-4000

my cell phone is area code 404-673-2145 Nate Jacks Commissioner.

I assume from the information that you may know the managers of Zorinsky Lake including the grounds. If this in not the case, please forward to the responsible managers.

I am a retired environmentalist who was employed at the US Army Corps of Engineers (The USACE Hazardous, Toxic, and Radioactive Waste Center of Expertise) offices in the Zorinsky Building in downtown Omaha. For some exercise, I walk the top of the dam embankment at Zorinsky Lake as often as I can.

The point of this communication: There is a dispersed bloom of what I think is Milk Thistle on both sides of the Dam embankment face that is now flowering. If harvested in the near future, the bloom along the entire embankment could be easily eradicated. I think one individual could remove virtually all the plants at this stage within an 8 hour period. Two or three could significantly reduce that time.

I have a brother-in-law rancher south of Broken Bow who spends much time, effort and money trying to control the thistle in his pastures, which is considered a major invasive species throughout the area. It disturbs me to see it gaining a foothold at Zorinsky, which is such an attractive lake and local resource.
