Paxton Warned to Boil Water


PAXTON, Neb. (AP) -- People in the western Nebraska town of Paxton are being told to boil their tap water before drinking it.

The village issued the notice to its residents this week after a water tower well failed to power up, drying up the tower.

Water has been pumped back into the tower, but officials must first receive the results of water samples taken from it before they can be sure the water is safe to drink.

Officials are hoping they have those results later this week.
