Week Of Hot-Button Issues

This has been a week of hot-button issues for me and my colleagues in the Legislature. On the floor, we debated allowing abortion coverage to be included in the health insurance exchanges under the federal health care law. We also debated a bill that would increase education and availability of food stamps and advanced a bill about picketing at funerals through the second round of debate. The Arizona-style immigration bill, LB48, was heard before the Judiciary Committee, and drew an overflow crowd of Nebraskans on both sides of the issue.

Reasons To Spring Into Action

It's time to spring into action as Fairbury High School is hosting a blood drive March 15. Donating blood is important for area patients. But, did you know it is one of the best things you can do for you? In addition to the great feeling you get when you make a life-saving difference, there are numerous health benefits as well.

First of all, each time you donate, you are given a health screening that includes a check of your blood pressure, pulse, temperature, and hemoglobin (iron level). When you are a regular blood donor, you can keep close tabs on your own health.

Secondly, studies show that donating blood may reduce the risk of heart disease. Increased blood iron levels have been associated with coronary artery disease. Reducing the iron reduces the risk.
