News Briefs:

A deal has been worked out for Barnstormers Restaurant to get and stay current on its electric bill. At Monday night’s meeting of the Norfolk City Council, Airport Authority Chairman Dan Geary said the delinquent bill was recalculated to deduct the cost of operating National Weather Service equipment located in the old terminal building, and Barnstormers owners Dave Fauss and Karl and Brenda Reeder have agreed to pay $9741.04 in eight monthly installments, while also paying each month’s bill.  Geary also talked about the difficulty of dealing with the Barnstormers lease because three of the five members of the Airport Authority are investors in the restaurant. He asked for assistance from the City Council in any future negotiations, but Mayor Sue Fuchtman said she didn’t think the Council members belong in that discussion.


Nebraska lawmakers have advanced a bill designed to increase Medicaid reimbursements from the estates of recipients with large amounts of money or property. Senators gave the measure first-round approval Monday with a 31-0 vote. The bill would require that the Department of Health and Human Services be notified when inheritance taxes are imposed on a trust, a sign that money is available to be recovered. Sen. Paul Schumacher of Columbus says many Nebraskans die with assets that could be recovered by the state to pay for Medicaid services that they use.


Nebraska senators will debate whether to legalize medical marijuana under a bill proponents say is aimed at residents struggling with debilitating seizures. A legislative committee voted 7-1 Monday to advance a measure to create cannabis centers where marijuana would be produced and dispensed. The committee advanced a version allowing a limited number of manufacturing centers and specifying that patients could not ingest the drug by smoking it. Sen. Tommy Garrett of Bellevue is the bill's sponsor.


The cost of brand inspections for cattle could rise to $1.10 per head under a bill advanced by Nebraska lawmakers. Senators gave first-round approval Monday to an increase in the maximum fee that the Nebraska Brand Committee can charge. The committee inspects cattle and investigates missing and stolen cattle. Inspections are mandatory in the western two-thirds of Nebraska anytime a bovine animal changes ownership.  The ceiling was last increased from 65 cents to 75 cents per head in 2005. The bill advanced on a 28-2 vote.


A Norfolk Church is hosting an appreciation dinner this weekend for volunteers who are constructing homes in Pilger. St. John’s Lutheran Associate Pastor Justin Wiese says the church’s Mission Life Team has reached out to the Mennonite Disaster Services Team to say thank you for their great work. Tyson's Fresh Meats of Madison has donated 150 lbs. of ham for the event.  Mennonite Disaster Service Team workers stay at the Norfolk City Auditorium and travel back and forth to Pilger each day to work on the homes for victims of the June 16th tornado. The ham dinner is scheduled for Sunday from noon to 2 at the St. John’s Fellowship hall at the corner of 13th Street and Benjamin Ave. in Norfolk.  Everyone’s invited. There’s no set price, just a free-will offering. For more information, call 402-371-1985.
