ST PAUL HAS A NICE NEWER LIBRARY WHICH IS ATTACHED TO THE SCHOOL BUT ACCESSABLE FROM THE OUTSIDE BY THE PUBLIC.
THE SECOND PICTURE SHOWS THE NEW HOSPITAL, OPENED IN FEBRUARY 2008.
THE REASON THAT THIS SIGN SAYS "BATTING .1000" AT THE BOTTOM is that St. Paul has quite a baseball history. They have a baseball museum downtown.
It's the "Museum of Nebraska Major League Baseball". One of St. Paul's own became a major leaguer: Grover Cleveland Alexander. Naturally he is featured in the museum.
However, other Nebraskans have been inducted into the Hall of Fame as well: Bob Gibson, Richie Ashburn, Dazzy Vance, and Wahoo Sam Crawford. Altogether there are over 130 Nebraskans who made it to the big show, including Wade Boggs, Rex Barney, Gregg Olson, Ron Hansen and Russ Snyder.
The town has done a nice job of saying thank you to our veterans. Visit the courthouse to see this memorial.
This courthouse serves Howard County, Nebraska. Which reminds me of one of my favorite lines spoken by Roger Welch of the CBS Sunday Morning tv show (Roger lives not far from here). While giving a tour of the USS Nebraska nuclear submarine, he noted that the huge submarine was "even more heavily armed than Howard County during Pheasant season."

The Miletta Vista vineyard and winery is located about 4 miles north of St. Paul, Nebraska. It is on the east side of highway 281 at the top of a hill. Look sharp because the sign (see photos) is rather small.
In March of 2008 their wine prices ranged from $14 to $16/bottle. They listed two dry whites, three semi-sweet whites, one dry red and one semi-sweet red. I tasted the semi-sweet offerings and liked each one. I took home a bottle of Work Horse Red and Brianna white.
The lady in the tasting room was very nice and we had a nice visit while I tasted the wines. The view from the winery windows is spectacular.
Their actual address is 1732 Hwy. 281.
UPDATE: Sadly, the winery buidling burned to the ground in 2012. It is being rebuilt (bigger and better) as I write this on January 16, 2013. I have included a photo of the new construction under way.
