     KEARNEY, Neb. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - Gov. Dave Heineman has selected Kearney as the location for the new Central Nebraska Veterans Home.
     Kearney's proposal bested those from Grand Island, Hastings and North Platte.
     Heineman said in a news release Friday that the decision wasn't easy. He said he had to choose between "four outstanding communities who submitted outstanding proposals."
     The $121 million project will replace an outdated, 225-bed facility in Grand Island. The current home in Grand Island has about 375 employees, and the new home is expected to generate millions in fresh economic activity.
