(Neb.)-Nebraskans Build Record Lincoln Log Tower

     LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Building a 12-foot-tall replica of the Nebraska state Capitol with more than 10,000 Lincoln Logs may be enough to get the city of Lincoln into the Guinness Book of World Records twice.
 
     A team of architects from DLR Group and students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln completed the record-setting tower on Saturday.
 
     One of the builders, Nate White, says the group had to be precise.
 
     The tower they built stood 12-foot-4-inches tall and included 10,036 Lincoln Logs. That made it the tallest structure ever built with the toys, and it used a record number of Lincoln Logs.
 
     The previous record set in March 2010 by The Community House of Arts in Ottawa, Ill., was a nearly 11-foot-tall structure with 2,995 Lincoln Logs.
