News Briefs:

The six men seeking the Republican nomination for governor will be in Norfolk tonight for a forum hosted by the Norfolk Daily News, the Nebraska Republican Party and Norfolk Senior High. The forum begins at 7 p.m. in the Johnny Carson Theatre at Norfolk Senior High, with doors opening at 6:15 p.m. There is no charge, but tickets are required for admittance and can be picked up at the Norfolk Daily News office.  The six Republican gubernatorial candidates are Jon Bruning, Pete Ricketts, Beau McCoy, Bryan Slone, Mike Foley and Tom Carlson. 

The Republican primary race for governor is heating up between Omaha businessman Pete Ricketts and Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning. Ricketts promised yesterday to run a positive campaign, saying he wouldn't make "careless accusations" against other candidates in the six-man field.  His announcement at the Capitol came in response to new, critical television ads by Bruning's campaign. Bruning has alleged that Ricketts' family and supporters are behind a series of anonymous, third-party attack ads against him, and that Ricketts is unwilling to attach his name to them. Ricketts says neither he nor his father, billionaire TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts, are involved with the ads. 

Norfolk Police officers feel vindicated by a U.S. District Court summary judgment in a case filed over a January 2011 incident.  At this week’s meeting of the City Council, Police Chief Bill Mizner and Sgt.  Chad Reiman talked about the decision by U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon in the case, Colvey versus the City of Norfolk.  Reiman, one of the three officers named in the suit, thanked the city and insurance provider League Association of Risk Management for their support.  The case was filed in 2012 by Lori Colvey, who claimed that officers had violated her Fourth Amendment rights when she was placed in Emergency Protective Custody.  In January of this year, Bataillon ruled that officers were following hospital policy, which requires that officers remain with patients in emergency protective custody through the initial evaluation. 

The city of Norfolk has issued its March building permit report. At yesterday's meeting of the city's Planning Commission, Prevention Manager Trent Howard said the report is still positive.  Fourteen permits have been issued this fiscal year for new single family houses, as well as two for duplexes, one for a triplex, and several for improvements to existing homes.  Howard says he is getting frequent questions about available lots, and he expects the building permit numbers to climb in the near future.

 A traffic shift is scheduled for tomorrow on Highway 35 between Norfolk and Woodland Park.  Department of Roads Highway Project Manager Doug Lollman says traffic will be shifted onto the newly constructed lanes in the Suburban Acres area, and the existing lanes will be removed beginning next week.  Lollman urges drivers to be cautious while driving through this – and any construction – area.
