News Briefs:

The city of Norfolk and Norfolk Public Schools have reached a new agreement for use of the City Council Chambers for School Board meetings.  The agreement will allow the Board to hold both the study session and regular board meeting in the same location on the second Monday of the month.  At last night’s meeting, Superintendent Marlene Uhing said the new agreement will facilitate a change in the time and format of School Board meetings.  Uhing says Board meetings will now start at 5 p.m., and all of the business will be conducted in one, continuous meeting with a short dinner break. The Board has been meeting in the Central Office building at 4:30 on the second Monday of the month for a study session, and then at 7:30 that evening in the Council Chambers to conduct regular business. Uhing says the change will allow all of the board proceedings to be televised on Cable One.

 

The 6th Annual Landon Bos Memorial Bicycle rodeo is for kids, ages 12-and-under and their bikes.  The event runs from 9 to noon Saturday at the Pedal Park.  The Bike Rodeo is in memory of Landon Bos, a seven-year-old boy, who in 2007 died in a pedestrian-car accident while he was riding his scooter.  Kids can go through a bike course.  Any child who needs a new bicycle helmets can have one courtesy of Triple-A.  The Norfolk Fire Division will have fire engines and an ambulance to check out.  Several area race car drivers will have their race cars on hand.  The State Patrol troopers will also be on hand to demonstrate the safety belt simulator and will also make sure your children’s safety seats are properly secured in your vehicle.  The Pedal Park is west of the YMCA.  

 

As parents plan their children’s summer calendar, staff of the Norfolk Arts Center want to remind them of opportunities in all areas of the arts.  Arts Center Program Director Melinda Kozell says there will be two opportunities for children’s theatre this summer – with the Missoula Children’s Theatre and the Dakota Players.  Kozell says three week-long art camps are also planned, along with a range of classes for adults and children. And five movies will be shown this summer in Central Park.  For more information on programs offered at the Norfolk Arts Center, check their web site or stop by the gallery.

 

A "test vote" in the Legislature suggests that a majority of Nebraska lawmakers want to abolish the death penalty, but there may not be enough support to overcome a filibuster.  Supporters of the repeal measure initiated the procedural vote on Monday to publicly gauge their backing. The vote suggests that 26 of the 49 state senators support the repeal, while 18 want to keep the death penalty in place. Five did not vote.  The vote came after roughly four hours of emotional debate. The repeal measure was introduced by longtime state Sen. Ernie Chambers, who has fought for decades to end capital punishment.      Lawmakers would need at least 30 votes to override Gov. Dave Heineman's veto, and 33 to force an end to debate.
