Matt Wynn of the Flatwater Free Press, the state’s first non-profit newsroom, visited the Nebraska City Rotary Club on Wednesday, Nov. 3, to discuss his new organization.

 Wynn is part of a group that launched the Nebraska Journalism Trust in April 2021 to usher in the next phase of journalism, he said.

The Flatwater Free Press has two full-time reporters who work on investigative stories, and its goal is to cover the state, especially about those stories that matter across Nebraska.

The scheduled guest speaker for the Nebraska City Rotary Club tomorrow (Nov. 10) will be private investigator David Nicholson, who will discuss international scams that can affect U.S. citizens.

Future speakers include Paralympian Cheri Becerra Madsen on Nov. 17; and state Sen. Mike Hilgers, speaker of the Nebraska legislature, who will explain the redistricting process on Nov. 24.

Cole Sharp is the club president. Call (402) 873-0530 for more information.
