After weeks of peeling away the wreckage left in the path of a massive storm, the signs of rebirth are surfacing in PIlger.
Thursday brought a major milestone with the first new home on the landscape since the deadly tornadoes swept through Stanton County. Kim and Ted Neiman will live there.
Kim is the village clerk. She said that she and her husband are moving forward with their lives and so is the rest of the town.
"We'll be bigger and better,” she said. “We're too tough to die. We're not going to die. We're going to keep going. We'll see more houses."
Kim and her husband will move into their new home in about a week-and-a-half.
Several other homes have already been approved for rebuilding.
