News Briefs:

Norfolk city officials thought demolition work had begun on the site of a new CVS Pharmacy in Norfolk without proper demolition permits – but that was NOT the case. City Prevention Manager Trent Howard says the activity at the corner of 13th Street and Norfolk Avenue was not authorized by CVS and some of it may have been looting. Howard says demolition permits were obtained Thursday morning. He says the permit process helps notify utilities of work that could disrupt service or even damage pipes and lines. CVS has purchased property in the southwest part of the intersection for a new pharmacy. Plans are to have the business constructed and open by October.

 

A preliminary federal report says a small plane hit and severed a power line before crashing south of Norfolk and killing two people aboard last month. The National Transportation Safety Board says the plane flown by 26-year-old Dale Butler, of Omaha, was airborne just two minutes before it struck the line on April 27. Witnesses had reported that the plane hit a line, and investigators found the severed line about a quarter mile from the crash site. It had been strung about 20 feet high. The plane crashed about two miles southeast of Norfolk. Also killed was Butler's passenger, 23-year-old Amy Brobst, of Fort Collins, Colo. The Piper PA-28 plane was registered to the Pro-Flite Inc. flight training school based in Omaha. FAA records say the single-engine aircraft was built in 1967.

 

Lawmakers have given first-round approval to a bill that makes up most of Nebraska's state budget. The bill was advanced on Thursday with a 36-0 vote. It followed nearly 16 hours of debate. The proposal is the largest of five bills that are part of the state's overall spending plan. It includes funding to keep state agencies, programs and the University of Nebraska in operation. Much of Thursday's debate focused on funding for small, specific budget items, including a home-visitation program for nurses and a railroad inspector job that hasn't been filled in years. Lawmakers also rejected an attempt to increase funding for a property-tax relief program. Lawmakers are required to approve a two-year budget before they adjourn for the year.

 

Northeast Community College and Nucor Corporation have been recognized as one of the top five corporate-college partnerships in the nation. The award was presented recently in San Francisco at a meeting of the American Association of Community Colleges. College President Dr. Michael Chipps says the Outstanding Corporate Partnership Award recognizes the cooperative effort that provides employees for the Nucor Detailing Center. Since 2006, the Detailing Center has grown from a core of 12 employees to nearly 80 today, and 60 percent of those employees are graduates of the Northeast Community College drafting program. Northeast increased the size of the drafting program to meet Nucor’s needs.
