Papillion street named after fallen soldier

The Papillion street where Army First Lieutenant Mark Noziska grew up will now carry his name in memory of his service in Afghanistan. Mayor David Black unveiled the new street sign Nov. 15, commemoratively renaming S. Polk Street as 1st LT Mark Noziska Lane. Noziska, 24, died in an explosion on Aug. 30, one month after arriving in Afghanistan. Since 2001 5,710 soldiers have died in Iraq and Afghanistan including 53 from Nebraska.
