Winter Storm Moving In

Winter Storm Moving In

This is the latest information received from Jefferson County Emergency Management, John McKee.

The first estimate of snow that the Omaha, Hastings and Topeka National Weather service has put out for the next Winter storm is starting Monday night thru Wednesday morning ranging from 6-10 inches. Winds will kick in Tuesday morning and increase through the day. At this point it looks like winds will be sustained around 20+mph to gusts around 30+mph out of the north. So blowing snow could be a problem. These stronger winds are forecasted to last through Wednesday. The other thing to be aware of is the bone chilling temperatures the rest of the week.

A winter storm watch has been issued starting 6 p.m. Monday the 4th through 6a.m. Wednesday the 5th. This watch may be changed to a warning later as the storm approaches.

Banahan Files For Re-election

Banahan Files

For Re-election

District 8 board president Vicki Banhan has filed for re-election.

Banhan's position is one of three that will be up for election during this year's general election. Fellow incumbents Tammie Davis and Chris Ruzicka also have their seats open. Neither Davis nor Ruzicka have re-filed as of yet.

The board is also looking to replace a seat vacated by Brian Stack, due to illness. Starck had two years left on his term when he resigned in January. The board will host a work session on Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. to talk with candidates interested in filling the position. A replacement is expected to be named later than night.

Incumbents have until Feb. 28 to re-file for elected positions.

Pete Ricketts Stops in Fairbury

Photo caption: Courtesy PhotoPete Ricketts, a Republican running for the Nebraska governors chair, stopped at Wallys in Fairbury last week.

Pete Ricketts, Republican, has joined other candidates that are running for governor of the State of Nebraska.

His approach to this gubernatorial race is different than when he ran for senate, although many of his concerns remain the same.

Ricketts made an unsuccessful 2006 bid for the Republican seat in the U.S. Senate.

Ricketts said that he listened too closely to political analysts out of Washington D.C.

He also believes that if he went on to fund his campaign independently it would send a message to people that he was not influenced by special interest groups but that wasnt the message that the voters had walked away with.
