The man who headed up the legislature's appropriations committee for six years has been selected as the 39th Lieutenant Governor of Nebraska. Lavon Heidemann was named Wednesday afternoon to replace Rick Sheehy, who resigned February 2nd because of an Omaha World-Herald investigation into his relationships with women other than his wife. Heidemann served eight years in the Nebraska legislature beginning in 2005, and was elected to the University of Nebraska Board of Regents in November. He says leaving that position was the hardest part of the decision to accept the nomination as lieutenant governor. The governor will nominate a replacement for Heidemann on the Board of Regents.
State regulators have cited a Pennsylvania steel mill service company following the death of a worker at a Norfolk steel plant. In October, 58-year-old Perry Hoemann, of Hoskins, was killed and another 49-year-old worker injured at the Nucor Steel plant when a piece of machinery they were working on broke loose and hit their pay loader. Hoemann was working with employees of Tube City IMS - based in Glassport, Penn. - when the accident occurred. Nebraska's Occupational Safety and Health Administration office issued two citations to Tube City for employees being exposed to work hazards. The penalty is $14,000. The company has 15 days to accept or contest the violations.
