Paving Springfield's streets began at 205 South 1st Street and proceeded north to Main Street. The year was 1923. The Metz Construction Company was hired to complete the work. Mr. Metz and employees stomped the air bubbles from the cement by foot.

Vaping & Juuling in Our Community

Cessation Week: November 18-22

(Papillion, NE) – In the past have you tried to quit smoking, but slipped up? You aren’t alone. Quitting is hard work! In Nebraska, more than half of adult cigarette smokers report having made a quit attempt in the past year. Now is the perfect time to give it another shot, and there’s help available!

The week of November 18-22, Tobacco Education & Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M), the Nebraska Tobacco Quitline and other organizations across the state are teaming up for Cessation Week. Cessation Week is an entire week focused on increasing Nebraskans’ awareness about the many resources available to help tobacco users successfully quit tobacco for good. 

“It is commonly known that tobacco use can lead to nicotine dependence and serious health problems. During Cessation Week, we are focusing on the many resources that exist to help Nebraskans beat the addiction,” Autumn Sky Burns, T.E.A.M. Coordinator said. 

During Cessation Week, T.E.A.M. and CHI Health Midlands is offering “Vaping & Juuling in Our Community” on Thursday, November 21st from 6-7:30 PM. A panel of experts will discuss about vaping devices look like; how they work; how they are addicting and what our community can do to protect our children. Free resources and a light buffet dinner included; register at https://www.CHIhealth.com/VapingPanel .  

The Nebraska Tobacco Quitline is also offering a free two-week supply of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) to all qualified callers. Trained quit coaches are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669), and for Spanish services, 1-855-DÉJELO-YA (1-855-335-3569). For additional resources and to learn more about the free NRT promotion visit www.QuitNow.ne.gov.
