Republican U.S. Sen.-elect Deb Fischer says she and her husband, Bruce, plan to go apartment hunting in the Washington, D.C. area sometime next week. Fischer was elected Tuesday to replace Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson, who opted not to seek a third term. , who will be sworn in as Nebraska's newest U.S. Senator in January, said her Washington digs will not be anything fancy. She said she'll probably settle for a one-bedroom apartment, much like she has had in Lincoln while serving in the Nebraska Legislature for the last eight years.
Nebraska already faces a nursing shortage, but a top dean at the University of Nebraska Medical Center says the need will grow even more under the federal health care law. Juliann Sebastian, dean of the university's College of Nursing, said Thursday that the increase in insured Nebraskans as a result of the law will prompt more to visit doctors' offices for preventative care. The law is intended to lower health care costs by insuring more people and encouraging them to seek early care to avoid major health problems. Sebastian says the health care law makes some federal money available for community health centers and school-health clinics, but the need for nurses will persist.
USDA is predicting grocery prices will increase up to four percent next year and no one is feeling the impact of higher food prices more than the Food Bank for the Heartland. Spokesman Brian Barks says higher grocery prices really impact them. Barks says they receive about half of their food from corporate donors, but they have started to reduce supplies as well. He says food bank supplies are down hundreds of thousands of pounds as they head into the busy holiday season. The Food Bank for the Heartland serves 77 food pantries in Nebraska and in 16 western Iowa.

Veterans Day is a time for all of use to remember the men and women who have served our country, and especially those who gave their lives. For the McIntosh family in Norfolk, that means remembering a young man named Claude Van Andel who was killed by a claymore mine during the Vietnam War. Jan McIntosh Einspahr remembers Van Andel as a typical high school student. Van Andel's death is linked to the design for the Vietnam Wall memorial. He was a friend of Jan Scruggs, who founded the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and raised $8-million to build the wall. J. Paul McIntosh will tell the Claude Van Andel story Monday morning at Lutheran High Northeast and again at noon to the Norfolk Kiwanis Club.
