Lincoln Organization Asking for Snow Removal Volunteers


LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska's capital city has put out a call for more "snow angels" as a powerful storm approaches the state.

The city of Lincoln's Snow Angels program was started in December by the United Methodist Church. The program puts volunteers in touch with people unable to remove snow from their sidewalks and driveways. City ordinances require people to clear their sidewalks.

The big storm is promising to dump up to 8 inches overnight and Thursday in Lincoln, so the city Public Works and Utilities Department issued the call for more angels. Volunteers can sign up on the city's website,
