According to Alliance Vistors Bureau Director Kevin Howard, The Alliance Chamber of Commerce had an art contest for panhandle residents to design the 2017 Carhenge Solar Eclipse logo a year ago. The winner of the contest was Mr. Gomez, a teacher from Hemingford High School.The Alliance Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau announced a contest to create an official logo for the solar eclipse. This contest will be open to all high school students and adults in Box Butte County. This artwork will be placed on various items for the event such as hats, t-shirts, souvenirs, etc. This logo design will become property of the Chamber of Commerce.
According to http://www.carhengesolareclipse2017.com,
“Experience a once in a lifetime event when you visit Alliance Nebraska in August 2017 to view the Total Solar Eclipse.
On Monday, August 21, 2017 the moon will align perfectly with the sun casting a shadow across all of Alliance causing a total eclipse of the sun. The best place for viewing the Total Solar Eclipse being on the exact centerline of the eclipse path as the centerline enjoys the longest viewing time. Alliance, Nebraska is located on the centerline of the eclipse. Carhenge® is the place to be. They say a partial eclipse is like standing outside the concert hall while a TOTAL Eclipse is like experiencing the actual concert!
The start of the Eclipse will begin at 10:27am Mountain Daylight Time. Full eclipse will start at 11:49 am MDT and continue for 2 minutes and 28 seconds at Carhenge, 2 minutes and 30 seconds downtown Alliance and at the Airport.
Solar viewing areas will be set up at Carhenge, Alliance Airport, and Laing Lake park. With the dry Western Nebraska climate, and the time of year, there is an excellent chance of cloudless skies. Historically speaking, there is about a 50% chance of no cloud cover on that day and time, a 40% chance of some clouds, and only a 10% chance of total obscurity.
Alliance, Nebraska is centrally located for eclipse viewers from North Dakota, South Dakota, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, and
Alliance is located 4 hours north of Denver Colorado (DIA) and 2 1/2 hours south of Rapid City, SD (RAP). I believe it was Carly Simon who once sang “Then you flew your Lear Jet up to Alliance Nebraska. To see the total eclipse of the sun…” (or something to that effect) Fly into Alliance (AIA) at FlyAllianceNE.com
Plan to arrive in plenty of time to stake out your viewing site, many sites will be provided in the Alliance, NE area. Local information on other things to see and do may be found at VisitAlliance.com
The weekend of the Eclipse will be filled with educational and fun events to make your visit to Alliance memorable, educational, and fun for the entire family. Come find out what Western Nebraska hospitality is all about and experience the Total Eclipse. We’re looking forward to seeing you in August of 2017!
The only time you can view the sun without protective glasses (CE Certified Safe Solar Eclipse Glasses) is during the total eclipse, at all other times, protect your eyes. DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN.
Lodging and attraction information for Alliance, Nebraska Please be aware that lodging facilities cannot book until at least August of 2016.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – A meat company based in Nebraska is recalling 167,427 pounds of ground beef that might be tainted with E. coli bacteria.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Sunday that All American Meats Inc. is recalling the meat that was sold to retailers nationwide. No illnesses have been linked to the beef.
The recalled meat was produced on Oct. 16, and it was sold in either 60-pound or 80-pound packages.
All the meat that is being recalled had a sell-by date of Nov. 3 and establishment number 20420 in the USDA inspection stamp.
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) – A student at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City is facing charges after authorities raided his dorm room.
Police say they found various drugs including cocaine and marijuana in the room of 19-year-old Tyler Prins of Foxfield, Colorado. They also searched his vehicle and say they found a semiautomatic pistol, a .22-caliber rifle and an AR-15 rifle.
Prins is charged with distribution/manufacture of a controlled drug and ingestion of a controlled substance. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney, and a telephone listing for him couldn’t be found.
Authorities say the raid by a drug enforcement team Friday was part of an ongoing investigation.
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) – Hall County prosecutors say no criminal charges will be filed in the drowning of a 5-year-old Lincoln girl at a Grand Island water park.
Hall County Attorney Jack Zitterkopf said in a news release Tuesday that Nubari Koffree’s drowning has been ruled accidental.
Nubari was with her mother at the Island Oasis Water Park on July 18. The little girl was found in the wave pool area. Grand Island spokeswoman Wendy Meyer says the wave pool operates in 10-minute intervals and was not running at the time of the accident.
Officials have said it was the first drowning to occur in the 21 years the water park has been open.
