Voters Party Dissolves in Nebraska

Nearly 300 registered voters in Nebraska will receive notice from Secretary of State John Gale that their party has been dissolved. Party leadership for Americans Elect recently informed the office of its dissolution at both the state and national levels. There are approximately 275 registered voters of Americans Elect in Nebraska.

A non-partisan, non-profit organization, Americans Elect was launched as a national effort to conduct an online convention to nominate presidential and vice presidential candidates for the 2012 election ballot. As a result of a successful petition drive in March 2012, it became a recognized party in Nebraska.

However, the online nomination effort was not successful and no Americans Elect candidate ever appeared on any state presidential ballot in 2012.

Climatologist predicts cold winter ahead

The official, scientific prediction for winter in southern Nebraska is out, but it doesnt say much.

There is not a strong or reliable enough climate signal to favor one category over the others, so [there] is an equal chance for above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures and/or precipitation, NOAAs annual winter outlook for the area said.

But Nebraska state climatologist Al Dutcher has more specific thoughts.

I would conclude that December will have a strong tendency for below normal temperatures state-wide, he said. Precipitation right now looks to be on the light side as the main storm track will lie south of us. However, most of our precipitation during the past two months came in three events, each nearly producing a months worth of moisture with each event.

Dutcher said he thought a majority of the moisture that would fall this winter would come with the occasional big storm.

You Drink, You Drive, You Lose

The Fairbury Police Department will be participating in the nationwide You Drink & You Drive You Lose crackdown which will be beginning on Dec. 13 and ending on Jan. 1.

During the period, increased patrols will be made possible due to a grant through the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS). This grant will allow officers to work extra time in order to increase the enforcement of traffic laws and specifically increase patrol for DUI enforcement.

The extra time worked by officers will then be paid by the NOHS.

With the goal of increasing DUI enforcement, the Fairbury Police Department hopes to decrease the number of injury accidents which occur in the city.

The Police Department will be taking Zero-Tolerance stance on all alcohol violations during this time period.
