News Briefs:

Norfolk firefighters responded to a house fire at 1:15 this morning.  On arrival, firefighters found heavy fire coming through the roof area of the home at 120 El Camino Drive. According to Norfolk Fire Division Capt. John Reding, firefighters were able to contain the fire to the roof line and chimney and had it under control in 10 minutes. Firefighters remained on the scene for several hours for overhaul and cleanup. There were no injuries. The house is owned and occupied by Casey Thompson of Norfolk. The Madison County Sheriff’s Office, Nebraska Public Power District, and Black Hills Energy assisted. 

A Norfolk family whose home was damaged by a fire says they're thankful for the love and support of their community. The Norfolk Daily News reports that Marshal and Stacy Hardy and their three children escaped their Norfolk home about six weeks ago after it caught on fire. The family says they have received numerous offers of housing and many people have given them gift cards so they could buy clothes and other necessities. They are now living in a rental property while they work with the insurance company and contractors to repair their house. 

Nebraska Atty. Gen. Jon Bruning objects to President Barack Obama's executive order delaying deportation of up to five million illegal immigrants.  Bruning says the move could put more pressure on states attempting to distribute social services to their citizens, yet, he says he has a more fundamental concern. Bruning says the president is "pushing the envelope" in acting without Congressional approval to delay deportation of up to five million illegal immigrants. Bruning has joined with other Republican Attorneys General and Attorneys General-Elect in sending a letter to the president, objecting to his executive order. He says legal action is being contemplated, but nothing has been filed yet. 

Gov. Dave Heineman isn't ready to talk about his future. Heineman has a little more than a month left in his ten-year tenure as governor. He insists his focus is on his current job, not on any future one. Heineman had expressed interest in the vacant presidency position with the University of Nebraska,  but the university's Board of Regents released the names of four finalists earlier this month, and the governor's was not among them. Heineman could not run for re-election due to term limits. 

The Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District has hired a new general manager. At its November meeting, the NRD board voted to hire Mike Sousek of Wahoo. Sousek is currently the Rural Water System Manager with the Lower Platte North NRD based in Wahoo. Other finalists were Lower Elkhorn NRD Assistant General Manager Ken Berney of Stanton; Lower Elkhorn NRD Water Conservation Specialist Brian Bruckner of Wayne; and Lower Niobrara General Manager Terry Julesgard of Butte. Sousek will replace Stan Staab in January. Staab is retiring after 35 years with the state’s NRDs.
