News Briefs:

Three routes have been proposed to the Nebraska Public Service Commission for the Keystone XL pipeline, including one that crosses Madison County from northwest to southeast. Jeff Purcell, executive director for the PSC, says the preferred route is the one that then-Gov. Dave Heineman approved. Another route is referred to as the "Sandhills Alternative Route," while the route that includes Madison County is called the "Keystone Mainline Alternative Route." 

The Norfolk City Planning Commission has recommended approval of a zoning change to allow construction of a Helena Chemical fertilizer operation at the corner of 1st Street and Eisenhower Ave.  At Tuesday’s meeting of the Commission, Todd Lorenz explained the request for a change in zoning from single family residential to light industrial. He said Helena plans to offer both dry and liquid fertilizer at the site, but the initial construction will be the dry fertilizer warehouse. The project also requires a Conditional Use Permit, and the request for that was tabled while the conditions are written up. 

The election to recall all four members of the Neligh City Council will be held Thursday, October 15. Neligh City Attorney Jim McNally says he is urging the Council to take action next week to prepare for the possibility that, after the election, there will not be enough council members left to conduct business or pay bills. He is recommending that a resolution be approved at Tuesday night's regular council meeting giving authority to Mayor Joe Hartz to sign checks for employee salaries and current expenses. 

Agriculture could be the biggest beneficiary of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. State Agriculture Director Greg Ibach says Nebraska farmers and ranchers could see great opportunity once TPP brings down tariffs against American agricultural goods. Ibach says Japanese importers said lower prices through lower tariffs would make Nebraska beef and pork, in particular, more attractive. 

For several years, the agricultural sector of Nebraska's economy has enjoyed increased revenue. But that situation has changed in the past year. Jerry Catlett, senior vice president of the Bruning State Bank and chairman-elect of the Nebraska Bankers Association, says producers - and their bankers - are hoping for high yields this fall because of the low commodity prices. Catlett made his comments while in Norfolk Tuesday for the NBA fall meeting. 

The price at the gas pump has jumped 10 to 15-cents a gallon in Nebraska in the last two weeks. Triple-A's Rose White says the increase was due to routine maintenance at refineries that serve the Midwest region. The average price at the pump in Nebraska is $2.36 a gallon, seven-cents higher than the national average, but 88 cents lower than last year at this time. 

Families are encouraged to review their fire-safety plans this week, National Fire Week. Norfolk City Fire Marshal Terry Zwiebel says the theme this year is "Hear the beep where you sleep," emphasizing the importance of working smoke detectors. Zwiebel says the useful life of a smoke detector is about 10 years, and just because you change the batteries every year doesn't mean your older smoke detector is working.
