 Odegeo Leadership Has Business and Industry Session
The Odegeo…Leadership for Fillmore County class attended a Business and Industry session on April 18th, 2017.  Both new and older business in Geneva, Exeter, Ohiowa, and Shickley were visited and toured.
In Geneva the group toured and/or learned about Barbur Floral, Metal Tech Partners, Certified Truck & Trailer Repair, All American Book Bindery, and Bioiberica Nebraska and Bio-Tee USA.
Horizontal Boring & Tunneling was an interesting stop in Exeter since many of the class did know about the process of putting pipes under roads, rivers, railroad tracks and buildings
The group not only learned about the winery and brewing business at Lazy Horse Vineyard & Brewing near Ohiowa, but enjoyed wood fired baked pizza for lunch
Shickley was the next stop.  Local entrepreneurs met the group at the Shickley Community Center.  After moving back to Shickley Valerie Andersen opened Shickley Tech-Net and Casey Andersen operates Andersen Construction. Tim Lichti, owner of Lichti Oil Shickley, said he also has business locations in Bruning, Geneva, York and Lincoln. He told the history of his business that was started by his dad and uncle in 1954.
The group visited another new business in Shickley, 5 Loaves Market & Bakery.”  They enjoyed sampling the home baked cookies. 
Construction Begins on Milligan 41 Express
Construction has started on a new convenience store and car wash on the North side of Highway 41 right outside of Milligan. 
A group of local investors decided there was a need for a convenience store along Highway 41 which would serve the needs of the local citizens and highway traffic.  
Millilgan 41 Express will have all the features of a conven-ience store plus a car wash.
Plans are that the convenience store and car wash will be completed this summer.
