News Briefs:

Minor flooding is likely in central Nebraska this week as the Platte River continues to swell with water from Colorado. The floodwaters have caused problems all along the South Platte River since last week. The National Weather Service is warning people who live near the Platte River in Cozad, Kearney, Grand Island and other communities downstream to prepare for possible flooding. Experts are also urging everyone to avoid contact with the floodwaters which are contaminated and may carry dangerous debris. And once the river rises, it will likely remain high for at least a day or two before receding. The Platte River began rising at Overton overnight and at Elm Creek early this morning. The floodwaters will reach Kearney this evening.

 

The first of five public-input hearings of the Legislature's Tax Modernization Committee are set to begin in western Nebraska today.  Lawmakers will convene this afternoon at Western Nebraska Community College in Scottsbluff. The committee will hold a public hearing on Tuesday in North Platte Community.  Its final hearing for the week will take place at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at Northeast Community College in Norfolk. The committee has been assigned to review Nebraska's tax system for fairness, simplicity and stability, while helping to compete with other states. The panel is expected to release a report by mid-December. Hearings in Lincoln and Omaha are scheduled in October.

 

One of the Democratic candidates for governor says he would change the good time policy in the state corrections system if elected. Chuck Hassebrook says a recent situation in Omaha, where a convict released early, even though he had a history of violence in prison is accused of murdering four people, has caused him to look at good time regulations.  Hassebrook says he recognizes keeping violent criminals in prison longer would make the overcrowding problem in the state’s prisons even worse. To deal with that, he would like to see greater use of drug courts. Hassebrook says 57 percent of the state’s prisoners are incarcerated for non-violent crimes, and many of them are drug related. Hassebrook made his comments on a recent campaign stop in Norfolk. His opponent, Annette Dubas of Fullerton, will be in Norfolk tomorrow for a 12:30 stop at Prenger’s Restaurant.

 

About 800 women are expected to gather Wednesday night at the Divots DeVent Center for the 10th annual “Go Red For Women, Ladies Night Out.” Committee member and past chairman Angie Stenger says heart disease is often associated with men, but it’s the number one killer of women. Stenger says the night will include dinner and drinks served by male waiters, as well as educational videos and three guest speakers, all heart disease survivors.  Other activities include both silent and oral auctions. It begins at the DeVent Center Wednesday night at 5.  For ticket information, call Sara Brown at (402) 489-5115.
