Railroad buffs who keep watch on the Superior train yard, were surprised this week to see this lineup of "Union Pacific coal motors" arrive with a string of empty grain hoppers for the Agrex elevator. The large engines were once used almost exclusively for the transport of coal from the Powder River Basin of Wyoming. When built in the 1980s they had a new design of cab and frame and came with alternating current instead of the more conventional direct current electdc motors. The design provided for 6,000 horsepower diesel motors to ddve the electric generators but this order of locomotives contained smaller 4,300 horsepower engines. On the next order, the engine size was increased to the designed 6,000 horsepower. The new design offered better traction and rail adhesion and featured independent wheel action. The locomotives are 80 feet long, have 42-inch diameter wheels and carry a 5,500 gallon supply of diesel fuel. Highland By IvaLee Jacobitz i Sharon Buresh and Uyvonne Knehans went to Hastings.

They were overnight guests of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Awsiekiewicz and Jacob and celebrated Jacob's seventh Encourage teens to set future goals By Phyllis Schoenholz Nuckolls County Extension Specialist This is the time of the year when seniors are looking into future options.

Making plans for the future can be exciting and stressful--for teens and parents. Seniors have many educational and career options to sort through as their high school graduation date nears. Most teens, and not just seniors, understand that decisions made during youth will have long-term consequences, which adds pressure to choose the right path. Parents play important roles in help- ing their teens plan for the future. To help teens set goals, parents should: Encourage teens to develop talents and abilities. A'child who is a math whiz should be encouraged take ad- vanced math courses. Tell teens to consider careers that use their strengths. Help teens choose high school courses and college majors that will allow them to reach their career goals. Tell teens to shadow a professional in their field of interest. Teens should find out why the professionals enjoy their work and how they became suc- cessful. Take an attitude assessment. Adults' beliefs and behaviors influ- ence their teens' achievement. For ex- ample; parents who dismiss the impor- tance of science classes send a mes- sage that science isn't important, which diminishes teens' motivation to do well. Stay flexible. Teens' goals and de- sires often change as they mature, so their lives may change directions after they've already made important deci- sions. Teens who learn to think about their options will be able to handle these situations better than those with- out that skill.
