The Platte Institute for Economic Research has announced the addition of Norfolk attorney Dave Copple to its board of directors. Copple currently serves on the President’s advisory committee for the University of Nebraska and the Nebraska State Highway Commission. The Platte Institute publishes research on policy topics including tax policy, government spending, labor and regulation, and education. 

There are a lot of problems at the Nebraska Department of Corrections, but the agency’s new director says overcrowding is a major issue. Frakes tells NewsTalk WJAG the problem is not just enough beds, but beds in the proper areas and specialties so that inmates can be placed correctly when they first come into the system. Frakes says another big issue he faces is hiring and retaining quality employees, and making those employees feel appreciated and respected. 

A graduate of Northeast Community College and Bellevue University has been hired to recruit more workers to the Norfolk area. Norfolk Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Mark Zimmerer says Amanda Barfuss started her new position last week. Zimmerer says Barfuss’s official title will be Director of Talent Development and Recruitment. She will work with the Mayor’s Workforce Taskforce to recruit and retain workers for Northeast Nebraska business and industry. 

The Environmental Protection Agency’s efforts to clean up the Chesapeake Bay watershed could affect farmers and others. That’s the concern of American Farm Bureau Federation Policy Communications Director Will Rodger. Rodger says the EPA is setting specific limits for nitrogen, phosphorous and sediment in the bay – and also trying to micromanage the process. He says that is a concern for farmers and developers. Rodger says Farm Bureau has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the issue once and for all. 

Officials who oversee the maintenance of the Cowboy Recreation and Nature Trail in Nebraska have scheduled several public sessions for people to comment on its future.

The trail is a rail-to-trail conversion that runs 195 miles from Norfolk to Valentine. Officials say the development of a master plan is aimed at providing direction and information about the next 20 years of management of the trail. 

An English teacher at Norfolk Catholic High School is helping his senior students' writing skills by having them write a novel in a month.

Clark says every student in his class who has participated in the youth version of the writing exercise, which has a goal of 30,000 words, has completed the assignment. 

Americans will prepare millions of turkeys this Thanksgiving and one method that’s grown increasingly popular over the years is to deep fat-fry the bird. Norfolk Fire Marshal Terry Zwiebel says that can be dangerous if not done right.  Before you deep fry a turkey, Zwiebel asks that you go to the U-S Fire Administration’s web site: and type “turkey fryer safety” in the search area.
