Weatherization Program Falls Victim to Sequestration

Local weatherization program takes a big hit with sequestration cuts.

Kelly Davis, Weatherization Director/Program Director for Blue Valley, reports that prior to sequestration he was working with a 12 person crew, including himself. Now he is down to three people, including himself.

The hardest thing that I have ever done and let me tell you I lost a lot of sleep over this, Davis says. I had to go out on the jobs and explain to five people who had done nothing wrong and worked their hearts out for me that I would have to let them go.

The cuts didn't all come immediately, as he just recently had to lay off two more people, but none the less the cuts were directly due to sequestration. He, as well as his crew, is looking at working nine months a year.

Michael Capehart Sentenced

District Judge Paul Korslund

Michael Capehart was sent to the Nebraska State Penitentiary for four to five years Thursday for felony theft of more than $1,500 from his employer Livingston Enterprises.

Thursday afternoon Jefferson County District Judge Paul Korslund reviewed testimony in a restitution hearing before Capeharts sentence was handed down in which Bruce Livingston, President and CEO of Livingston Enterprises took the witness stand.

Before the hearing, Capehart and County Prosecutor Linda Bauer came to an agreement to set the restitution at $10,000 but that amount was thrown out by Korslund when he gave out his sentence.

This is a complicated matter. It is very clear you were in a position of trust. You were handed the keys to the kingdom, Korslund said.

Korslund noted that Capehart had been convicted of a similar theft charge in Texas in 1999.
