The year 1984 has been a difficult year for the residents of southeast Nebraska. I am very proud of the faculty of Southeast Research and Extension Center stationed in out Lincoln office on the East Campus of the University of Nebraska and the 23 county cooperative extension service offices in the Southeast Extension District, who have been sensitive to the needs of the people in planning their program in extension, research and forestry programs.
The University of Nebraska through the Cooperative Extension Service has played an important role in helping the residents of southeast Nebraska. It has been a year with farm and urban families needing to learn skills to cope with the poor economic conditions and to recover from disastrous flooding.
The faculty of the University of Nebraska have assisted by helping families identify alternatives for evaluating their farm income, by providing information for families and business when returning to their homes following the June floods, and by helping families reduce personal stress through improved communication with their spouse, children, or friends.
This report is a summary of some programs completed by the fifty-nine agents and fifteen specialists who work in the twenty-three counties of the district. Many other programs were presented. We have chosen to summarize but a few.
