    Now I can pull Grenta off my bucket list. If only I didn’t have to go to Gretna.

    Does no one at Via Media know how to read a map?

    “…Nebraska Crossing Outlets…will draw 3 million to 4 million visitors each year from a 150-mile radius, …”
    Nebraska has the lowest per capita tax debt in the USA. If they want to use legal tax credits, etc for an outlet mall in a terrific location, why not?
    If Trader Joe’s shows up in Gretna, Nebraska, then it WILL be a destination that drives growth.

      The problem is always USNK that if indeed there will be that much demand the private sector should do it, not government. The fact they have to use tax credits, etc. shows that the venture cannot be profitable without them.
