Dr. Kusek Joins Elgin Dental Clinic

August 29, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

The availability of dental service in Elgin has expanded following the announcement of Dr. Kate Kusek joining the staff of the Elgin Dental Clinic.
Dr. Kusek will be in Elgin on Wednesdays and Thursdays with office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Tuesdays and Fridays she will see patients at the Albion office. On Mondays she teaches at Creighton University in Omaha.
A native of Albion, (she moved there when she was two years old), her parents are Dr. Tony and Carol Kusek. During our interview she stated that she became interested in Dentistry when she was a young child and pursued her dream. A 2003 graduate of Boone Central High School, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Creighton University. She graduated from the Creighton School of Dentistry in 2011. Dr. Kusek spent a post doctorate year of residency in Albuquerque, N.M. before returning to Albion.
“I knew I wanted to have a practice in a small town,” she said Thursday morning. “The area that had the most to offer was Albion and Elgin. “I’m excited to work with Dr. (John) Williams and Dr. (Samuel) McMillan…They’re wonderful, nice guys who love what they do. It’s a good atmosphere to start up in. It’s the kind of atmosphere I want in my practice someday. I can learn from the ‘masters.’”
She said one of the unique aspects of dentistry is that people come in with a problem, and most of the time they can leave with their problem fixed. “I get to do different things every day and as most dentists, I do love people. There are a wide variety of personalities we meet and interact with.”
As she begins her practice here, Dr. Kusek can do all kinds of general dentistry (fillings, root canals, extractions, bridges, dentures, etc). She accepts self-pay patients and will soon be a preferred provider with most insurance companies. Notices will appear in the paper as provider status is granted. Patients are encouraged to make appointments, but walk-ins are welcome.
Appointments can be made in the Elgin office by calling (402) 843-2429 or (800) 405-2211.

Congressman Smith Sees Constituents at The Willows

August 29, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Opportunities to meet and question a member of Congress are rare. Yet, area residents were given the opportunity to do just that when Third District Congressman Adrian Smith came to Neligh Thursday afternoon.
Residents of The Willows were joined by a number of area residents to hear Smith answer their queries on a wide array of subjects.
Smith’s visit was a simple one, to field questions and try to provide answers. During the hour he was at the Willows, he had an answer for every question.
Asked to explain changes in Medicare, he said the proposals being offered in the House of Representatives will not affect anyone over age 55. For those under that age, he said laws need to be enacted to make sure all can afford what it costs to get care when the time comes.
“Medicare needs fixing,” Smith said. “We need to do something or we are endorsing its demise…President Obama wants to extend the life of Medicare eight years. We owe the American people more than eight years.”
He went on to say, “When you remove the politics from it (the Medicare debate) we can sustain Medicare for generations to come. We want to make sure we can do that in the future.”

August 29, 2012 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

The Nebraska State Patrol notified the Antelope County Sheriff’s Department of a possible theft operation involving a group of magazine salespersons going door-to-door in this area.
Nebraska State Patrol said these salespersons are asking to come into the home and use the restroom, and then they are possibly goi

Nebraska State Patrol said they wish to alert local citizens of this criminal activity so they can use caution when approached for door-to-door sales. They added that the suspects appear to be moving from town to town quickly but may still be in our area.
The Elgin Review asks that you alert your friends and neighbors to this possible operation.
