Safe Kids Sarpy/Cass County, led by the Sarpy/Cass Department of Health and Wellness, is proud of our mission statement, “Preventing Unintentional Injury and Death in Children Ages 14 and Under”. It is because of this, that Safe Kids Sarpy/ Cass County is pleased to present the second annual “Cass County Safe Kids Bike Rodeo and Safety Event” on Saturday April 28th, from Noon to 2 p.m. at the Plattsmouth Community Center, 308 South 18th Street, Plattsmouth, Nebraska.

Several community businesses and volunteers have joined forces in the name of child safety making this a great event in Cass County, Nebraska. The Cass County Safe Kids Bike Rodeo and Safety Event is a free family event where kids and parents can come to have fun while learning about safety. We are encouraging kids to bring their bikes to this event so that they can participate in the Bike Rodeo which is sponsored by the Plattsmouth Police Department. Safe Kids will furnish 200 helmets to be given away at this event. This event is full of fun-filled educational safety activities. Come for the fun and stay for the free drawings of bikes and other prizes. Free hot dogs and drinks will also be available.

For Immediate Release: Efficient Management of the Legislative Process  

 

The legislature uses special strategies to move some bills through the legislative process. Priority designations increase the chance that bills of particular importance to senators, committees and the speaker will be debated. “Christmas Tree” bills include other bills of like-subject matter, merged into a single proposal to move through floor debate simultaneously. I had an opportunity recently to use another procedure, known as Consent Calendar, to manage bills I introduced this year.

 

Bills advanced by a legislative committee with no dissenting votes are eligible for the Consent Calendar. The Calendar and the bills it contains are announced at least twenty-four hours before debate is scheduled. A bill on Consent Calendar is assigned fifteen minutes for introduction and debate. When debate ends or time expires, a vote is taken. A bill can be removed from the Calendar by a written request of at least three senators before debate begins or during its fifteen-minute time allotment. This year the Calendar included three bills that I introduced.

 

LB 1005, one of my personal bills that effects emergency responders in our legislative district, would amend the Volunteer Emergency Responders Job Protection Act, to include members of state emergency response teams. The bill would also prevent an employer from taking disciplinary action against an employee, when he or she is serving as a state volunteer emergency responder. At the recommendation of the Business and Labor Committee, LB 1005 was placed on and advanced from the Consent Calendar.

 

The Urban Affairs Committee's Consent Calendar recommendations included my bill LB 1121 – that I introduced on behalf of constituents in Cass County – to clarify that the rights of a particular category of SID property owners are the same when they sign petitions to recall a member of the board of trustees as they are when they vote to elect the trustee. This bill was also advanced from the Consent Calendar.

 

LB 948 was brought to me by elected officials in our district. It would add “electronic communication device” as an additional way in which a person could commit the offense of intimidation with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend. The Judiciary Committee asked that LB 948 be placed on the Consent Calendar, and it was. Some questions about the bill were brought to me before debate began. The counsel for the Judiciary Committee and I decided to remove the bill from consideration this year, address the questions during the interim and introduce the issue again in 2013.

Fifty-three bills by other senators were also scheduled on the Consent Calendar. LB 898 by Valentine Senator Deb Fischer would increase the allowed engine size in the definition of a mini truck. Current law allows rotor displacement of 1000 cubic centimeters or less. LB 898 would increase the size to 1500 cubic centimeters or less.

An honor and remember flag is one that commemorates and honors members of the U.S. Armed Services, who lost their lives in the line of duty. District 3 Senator Scott Price offered LB 999 to allow an honor and remember flag to be displayed on or near the State Capitol, Governor's Mansion or any courthouse, city hall or school building at the request of a veterans' organization, or any other group or person.

LB 1077 would provide that, when there is no national vaccine shortage, acute care hospitals, intermediate care facilities and nursing facilities would, between October 1 and April 1, offer on-site influenza and pneumonia vaccinations to all residents and all inpatients prior to discharge.

The Judiciary Committee recommended LB 805 for Consent Calendar. This bill would preserve the privacy and identity of individuals who apply for a license to sell fireworks in Nebraska, by eliminating the requirement to list the individual's social security number on the license application.

In 2009 physician assistants were authorized to sign death certificates. Lincoln Senator Kathy Campbell's LB 1042 would authorize nurse practitioner to sign death certificates, as well. Nurse practitioners are also primary care providers, but current law does not allow a nurse practitioner to sign the death certificate for a person who has been in their care. The law requires the certificate to be signed by a physician or physician's assistant within 24 hours of the death. If neither is available, the county attorney must be notified. This can make a difficult time for a family even more stressful. LB 1042 would make this process easier and less stressful for the family of the deceased.

 

I am always interested in hearing your comments by mail, phone or email.

AUDITION NOTICE - LOFTE COMMUNITY THEATRE


The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley will be holding auditions on Monday, April 9 and Tuesday, April 10 at 7pm for their 2012 season opener, "The Sunshine Boys."  The play is the story of two old entertainers, Al and Willie.  In the days of vaudeville, they were the top-billed comedy team, "Lewis and Clark."  Now they aren't even speaking. When CBS requests them for a "History of Comedy" retrospective, a grudging reunion brings the two back together along with a flood of memories, miseries and laughs.  George Burns won his only Academy Award in the film version of this Neil Simon play.


The two primary roles called for men approximate ages 65-80.  Other roles in the play include 4 men and 2 women ages 18-60.  A complete description of the roles and the script can be found on the Lofte website, www.Lofte.com.


The audition will consist of cold readings from the script.  Rehearsals will begin in mid-April.  The show runs May 26, 27, June 1-3 and 7-10.  Please bring a list of schedule conflicts to the audition.


Those who have questions may contact Artistic Director Kevin Colbert at 402-234-2553
