John McKee Director of Jefferson County Emergency Management and Tim Stutzman Director of Gage County Emergency Management conducted a Storm Spotter/ Public Training session in Beatrice at the Homestead Education Center Tuesday. The training was provided by the Jefferson and Gage County Emergency management groups and the National Weather Service of Omaha/Valley.
They went over the procedures for storm spotting and communication.
“So far in the US in the month of March there have been no tornados,” Brian Smith from the National Weather Service said. “The last time this happened was in 1969,” Smith said. May and June are the peak of the season for tornados, although we can have tornados well up into October. “Due to temperature and pressure changes the peak time of day for a tornado to happen is more likely to happen between the hours of 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.,” Smith said.

Adrian Smith, United States Representative for Nebraska’s third Congressional District, was in Fairbury to visit McBattas Packaging and Printing in Fairbury Friday, March 13 in support of the American-made movement.
The McBattas plant is one of only eight factories in the United States that produces American flags. McBattas, located in northern Fairbury, provides world-wide printing, packaging, screen printing and embroidery services.
Congressman Smith toured the McBattas campus with owner, Fred Arnold and MSA business development manager, Peggy Galloway. The group discussed the impact of over-seas competition, employment shortage and injurious unemployment incentives.
“This administration has done nothing to emphasize the dignity of work,” Congressman Smith said.
The United States imported $4.0 million worth of American flags in 2014 — of that, $3.9 million were imported from China.

Plans For Fairbury City Adm. Progress

The long vacant position of Fairbury City Administrator is taking steps toward being resolved, albeit tiny steps.
Fairbury Mayor Homer Ward told the Journal-News earlier this week that he has received several applications for the position which is being advertised nationwide. Ward said that while he isn't ready to make any of the applicants' names public, he added each is being reviewed.
"It looks like we have a wide array of people who have shown interest in the job," he said. "And as of right now the applicants will be reviewed by myself, and council members Ed Friesen and Doug Brown."
The position of city administrator has been vacant since last May when the contract of then administrator Joe Parker was not renewed. Ward said city leaders have made a concerted effort to fill the position, placing an emphasis on economic development.
