INVITATION to HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning is again seeking members
for his Youth Advisory Council (AGYAC). This is the ninth annual invitation to high school students,
who are interested in learning more about our state government.
AGYAC is composed of high school students, who are selected each year to represent schools
and communities from across the state. The opportunity to participate is available to high school
juniors and seniors. AGYAC members learn about state government and criminal justice issues
at a one-day conference in Lincoln. The daylong event features tours of the Capitol and Penitentiary,
and includes discussion forums with some of Nebraska's top elected officials.
AGYAC membership offers an excellent chance for students from District 2 to learn about our
government and criminal justice system, fine-tune their leadership skills and enjoy the rewards
that are derived from civic involvement. The Attorney General's director of programs reports that
ten students from District 2 participated in AGYAC in the past four years. These students said that
AGYAC provided a valuable learning experience.
The opportunity to get involved is also open to parents of the members, as well as to educators.
During the conference, lunch will be provided for students. However, a small fee will be charged
for parents and educators.
Members of AGYAC can be nominated by educators or their state senator. If you are a high school
junior or senior who attends a public or private school in District 2, and would like for me to recommend
you for membership on the Attorney General's Youth Advisory Council, please send me your resume
and a brief statement that explains why you would be a good candidate to represent District 2 on AGYAC.
Applications for AGYAC membership are due to Attorney General Bruning's office by Friday,
October 15, 2010. All of the application forms can be mailed from my legislative office or downloaded
from the Attorney General's web site at www.ago.state.ne.us
We welcome your contacts by mail, phone or email.

KIMMEL GALLERY DISPLAYS WORK
MURRAY WILDLIFE ARTIST
When you're in Nebraska City for the Applejack Festival this weekend, stop to see
the art exhibit at Kimmel Gallery by one of Murray's residents, retired high school
teacher and wildlife artist, Greg Hartel.
Greg is a Wisconsin native who taught at Bellevue East Hish School for 30 years
before retiring. While at East High, he taught A.P. Biology, Biology, Environmental
Education, Studio Art and Stage Craft. He completed a B.S. from the University of
Wisconsin Stevens Point in 1971, M.S.T. University of Nebraska, in '77 and a B.A.
in Studio Art from Bellevue University in '97. Currently, Greg is employed with the
Fisheries Division of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission in Aquatic Education.
He teaches fishing, fish identification, about frogs and turtles and fish printing.
Hartel has integrated his lifelong love of art with his passion of wildlife and nature.
While his senior show at Bellevue University was in ceramic, wood and bronze sculpture,
his primary mediums are pen and ink and watercolor drawings. His drawings depict
wildlife and scenes from nature. Great effort is focused on details of the anatomy of
his subjects, resulting in a combination of technical biology illustrations and studio art.
Hours for the exhibit are the same as library hours, Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. -
6 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., closed Sundays.
Greg's art exhibit will continue to run through October 5th at Kimmel Gallery.
