Dedication set for new Mahoney State Park cabins

ASHLAND, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraska Game and Parks officials are preparing to
dedicate new cabins at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park near Ashland.

The cabins were built with $1 million approved by state lawmakers and Gov. Dave
Heineman. Heineman will dedicate the first of the completed cabins during a
ceremony at 2 p.m. on Saturday. The public is invited to an open house and
trolley car rides from 2:45 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Game and Parks Commission says Mahoney State Park is one of the state's top
tourist attractions, with more than 1 million visitors a year. The park
generates about $6 million in lodging and campground fees, park permit sales and
other revenue.
