Area News

State Sen. Rob Clements
The 2019 Legislative Session has begun and state senators have finished introducing new bills. I
would like to address a few of the issues and mention some legislation I have introduced. First, I
would like to thank the voters of Legislative District 2 for trusting me to represent them in the
Unicameral. It is an honor and a privilege.
The preliminary work of electing leadership and permanent rules has been completed. We came
up three votes short of eliminating secret ballots in our rules for electing leadership positions. I
voted to end voting for leadership by secret ballot. I believe voters should be able to know who
their senator supports for leaders who will control much of the legislative process.
I am on the Appropriations Committee again and will continue to work hard to control state
spending and replenish our cash reserve. Right now, Nebraska has a small surplus, but there are
many competing interest for spending it, including property tax relief and Medicaid expansion.
The cost of Medicaid expansion will begin July 1, 2020, the second year of our two-year budget,
and is currently estimated at $48 million per year. There are several property tax relief bills, and
I am evaluating them and waiting to see which ones come out of committee.
I signed onto Sen. Brewer’s bill, LB 153, to increase income tax deductions for military retirees
by exempting 50 percent of military retirement income. This will help to keep more of
Nebraska’s military retirees from leaving our state and make us a more tax friendly state.
This session I have introduced six bills. LB 452 would move Cass County from Planning and
Development Region 6 to Region 8. This would move Cass from the Southeast Nebraska
Development District (SENDD) to the Metropolitan Area Planning Agency. This year we’ve
added language to provide a process by which counties may change regions in the future.
Next time I will address other major proposals before the Legislature and touch on some of the
other bills I have introduced.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff for information on issues or if I may be of
assistance. Please reach me at: Senator Rob Clements, State Capitol Rm 812, Lincoln, NE 68509

(402­471­2613), or at my email: rclements@leg.ne.gov.

Southeast Region 911 Announces Text-to-911 Service

For Immediate Release January 22, 2019

The Southeast Region 911 is announcing the availability of Text –to- 911 service for its 16 member counties in southeast Nebraska. At this time, Text-to-911 service is available to the public, through most wireless carriers in the Southeast Region.

Text to 9-1-1 is the next step in accessing emergency services as technology advances. While this is exciting technology that is existing with our daily communications, Text-to- 911 is not meant to take the place of calling 911 using standard voice calls.

The National Emergency Number Association (NENA) Text- to- 911 campaign reminds citizens to “Call if you can, Text if you can’t.” For those individuals who are hearing or speech impaired Text-to-911 provides a more convenient method to report an emergency. For anyone who is in a place where they cannot safely talk on the phone, are unable to speak or lack of service won’t allow for a voice call, Text-to-911 can also be an important and life-saving tool.

Calling 911 is still preferred as Text to 9-1-1 has some limitations to include:

  • • Location acquisition is much more limited and often not available, where voice 911, will typically provide very good location information as to the caller’s whereabouts.
  • • There is no guarantee your Text-to-911 text has made it to an emergency dispatch center until you receive a reply from the emergency operator.
  • • Information can be obtained more quickly with a voice conversation than via text.

For information regarding Text-to-911 and the need to “Call if you can, Text if you can’t”, please see the Federal Communications Commission website @ https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/what-you-need-know-about- text-911.

Love Is On The Air


Whats Happening at the Lofte

What's Happening at the Lofte! Valentine's Day Dinner Theatre, Annual Meeting and Jimmy Weber's Country Music!

The Lofte Community Theatre, located in Manley, NE will perform a radio dinner theatre, and host the Fremont TriTones February 15th and 16th.  Bring your Valentine, avoid the busy restaurant crowd, and celebrate with us! We have a night filled with Dinner, Drama, and Music. Love Is On The Air!

Join us for an old-fashioned comedic radio play, complete with commercials and musical interludes provided by the Fremont TriTones, a harmonic group inspired by the sounds of the Andrews Sisters.

The script, written by Eric Coble, “A Brief History of 20th Century Theatre,” is a clever tongue-in-cheek mixture of the era of radio drama, seasoned with some modern-day culture.  Let us take you back to a nostalgic time when entertainment meant families gathered around the radio!

The dinner menu will be:  grilled chicken with creamy garlic sauce, twice baked potatoes, a mixture of roasted vegetables, cake, and a cash bar available.

On February 24th at 2PM join us for our Annual Meeting! This is a free event! If you have been a volunteer at the Lofte, this is the night we recognize and appreciate you! Join us not only for our annual meeting, but for recognition awards for all the people who make the Lofte work!

Then on March 2nd at 7PM Jimmy Weber, local country music singer, songwriter, guitarist and US War Veteran is not only a talented and remarkable person, he has a long resume of music stars he has shared the stage with. Stars like Kenny Rogers, John Denver, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Clint Black and Trace Adkins to name a few. He has performed on a USO tour in the Middle East, on the USS Abraham Lincoln, and in Bahrain and Kuwait. To find out more information about Jimmy, and hear some of his music, visit his website http://www.jimmywebercountry.com/

Tickets for Love is On the Air and Jimmy Weber can purchased by calling the Lofte Community Theatre box office at 402-234-2553, or by visiting the theatre’s website at www.Lofte.org  and clicking on “Tickets”.
