Wynot, Nebraska attracts tourists driving by on the Outlaw Trail Scenic Byway (aka SR 12) to stop by the nation's smallest city hall. "Why not?" Once on Saint James Avenue, Wynot's main street, there are lots of signs advertising "lots for sale". It turns out that each residential lot is owned by the city and is being offered for only $250. Who knows if they are connected to utilities or what you can use the lot for (a mobile home, an RV?). The city's attempts to reverse outmigration are not working. Wynot's population is down 40% from its WWII high.

What we witness may not be "newsworthy" but that doesn't mean we shouldn't attract attention.
