Kalamazooo-Zooo-Zooo!!!...

"Kalamazoo" was one of the tunes Jitterbrats were dancing to at the end of the annual Louisville's Car and Truck Show-n-Shine event last Sunday, July 31st. 

The Last Hot Sunday in July car show was a HUGE success. There were 230 cars at this year’s event which was record breaking in spite of (really) HOT weather. Nancy and Dee thank all those who volunteered to help make the show successful.

Thank you, Nancy and Dee!!

(Louisville's most dedicated volunteers!)

Here are some pictures from the car show:

Senator Pankonin's Column

For Immediate Release: Collaboration Yields Good Policies Large and Small

July 29, 2011, Lincoln – Nebraska was well served by its one-house legislature again this year. Faced with several
daunting challenges, many people were concerned about how the needs of our state would fare in the first year of the
One Hundred-Second Legislature. When the legislature adjourned sine die on the 87th of the 90 days allowed for the
2011 session, it seemed clear that our respectful and collaborative approach to policy-making prevented the discord that
has recently plagued other states.

This year 698 bills were introduced, and more than 200 became law. Headlines were made by the balanced budget,
which was passed without tax increases; an innovative roads funding plan; legislative and congressional redistricting;
collective bargaining reform; stronger DUI laws; a first-step toward state government regulation of oil pipelines in
Nebraska; and an array of new economic development initiatives. As I reviewed this year’s important accomplishments,
I recalled other issues worthy of note, including:

LB 81 – This proposal to prohibit municipalities from levying a motor vehicle fee on nonresidents was prompted by
Omaha’s decision last summer to impose a wheel fee on people who work in the city but live outside its boundaries.
Nonresidents include people who do not have a primary residence or own a place of business within the city limits, as
well as full-time students attending school in a city other than the one in which their vehicle is registered. I supported
LB 81, in part, because many District 2 constituents, who work in Omaha, registered their opposition to the new wheel
fee with my legislative office. The bill carried an emergency clause, so it became law in March as soon as it passed the
legislature and was signed by the governor.

LB 575 – Moving children of military families to Nebraska will become easier, when the provisions of LB 575 take
effect on July 1, 2012. The bill ratified the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunity for Military Children. The
state Department of Education will administer the Compact. LB 575 will allow children of military parents to: enroll
in school when they arrive and provide a hand-carried school record, have 30 days to obtain required immunizations,
continue schooling at the same grade level they were in prior to transferring, participate in athletics and extracurricular
programs even in the middle of the school year, have additional excused absences if a parent is preparing for or returning
from deployment, and complete graduation requirements and receive a high school diploma from their previous school if
they transfer in the middle of their senior year. The Department will be allowed to accept donations and bequests to pay
the costs associated with the Compact.

LB 284 – Picketing of funeral or memorial services will be prohibited within 500 feet of a cemetery, mortuary, church
or other place of worship at the time of a funeral or memorial service. The current limit is 300 feet. The goal of LB 284
is to create an appropriate balance between the privacy rights of grieving family members and the freedom of speech
rights of others. A law that achieves these goals must be enforceable and meet constitutional challenges. By increasing
the distance from 300 to 500 feet, Nebraska will join 24 other states which have enacted similar requirements. The
provisions of LB 284 will become law at the end of August – three months after the legislature adjourned for the year.

LB 163 – This bill, introduced at the request of the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), will, by January 1, 2013,
establish an electronic system for processing applications for handicapped or disabled parking permits. Coincidentally, a
similar proposal was suggested to my office last fall by a city official in Cass County. The suggestion prompted contact
with DMV and confirmed, even before the session started, that this proposal would be offered. LB 163 will allow
renewals of handicapped parking permits to be made within 180 days of their expiration instead of the current 30-day
limit. The bill will extend the renewal period for permanent handicapped permits from three to six years and allow a
person to have up to two hang tags instead of just one. Finally, LB 163 calls for an additional medical certification, if a
permit holder requests more than two replacement tags in a six-year period.

Thank you for the opportunity to represent District 2 in the Nebraska Legislature.

get there.

Yochum, Kari Wockenfuss, Nancy McManis, Mike Krambeck, Justin Barnes, Deb

Terri reported that with a time crunch the school t-shirt project was put on
the fast track with an e-mail vote. The vote was to get donations to pay for the
t-shirts and Terri collected all the money and the project is moving forward.
B.U.I.L.D. hopes to form a strong relationship with the school. It was suggested
that a cardboard check for the amount of the project be presented to the school

4-H Auctions at Cass County Fair

Cass County Fair 4-H Auction Supporters (family, friends, businesses, alumni) are
invited to show support for Cass County 4-Hers by attending one of two 4-H auctions
held during the Cass County Fair.

• The 4-H cake auction starts at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening August 9, at the
open air auditorium on the Cass County fairgrounds. It provides an opportunity
to purchase fancy or decorated cakes, pies, and/or specialty breads baked and
decorated by 4-H members. The proceeds of this event will be divided between
the participating 4-Her and the Cass County 4-H Council. 4-H Council funds
raised at this event help sponsor activities for 4-H members throughout the year.
Auction supporters are invited to stay for the Fashion Show/Awards program
following the auction. A Sneak Peek and Refreshments will be held for everyone
at the 4-H Building following this event.
• The 4-H Livestock Auction starts at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, August 14,
in the livestock barn. Livestock judging awards will be presented to the 4-
Hers before the auction at 2:45 p.m. The Cass County 4-H Council clerks this
premium sale which is held for market animals only. Each exhibitor is allowed
to sell one animal of each species as premium only, meaning dollars per head not
cents per pound. Exhibitors retaining ownership will only receive the premium
from the sale. Exhibitors of shipped animals will receive the premium from the
buyer in addition to the sale proceeds from the buyer of the animal.

4-H Community Service and Quilts of Valor

In 2011 and 2012 Nebraska 4-Hers are being “challenged” to participate in the
Nebraska 4-H Quilts of Valor Challenge. By participating, 4-Hers from across the state
will be making quilts to be donated to soldiers or veterans of military service who have
been touched by war. Volunteers are helping 4-Hers meet the challenge.
Quilts of Valor can be exhibited at the 2011 or 2012 county and state fairs. This
year, Quilts of Valor will be donated to the National Foundation on Saturday morning,
September 3, in the 4-H Building at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island. The
Nebraska 4-H Foundation will be hosting this event.
Cass County 4-Hers and volunteers partnered with Seams To Be Quilt Shoppe in
Plattsmouth on July 11 to make a Quilt of Valor for donation and patriotic pillows for
fair entry. 4-Hers and volunteers also worked on a Quilt of Valor during the annual
Community Service Workshop Day, July 28, along with other “Care & Share” projects:
Colleen Shrader Kids for Kwiltz quilts for emergency services, tote bags for the Child
Saving Institute in Omaha, Conkerr Cancer pillow cases for seriously ill children in
Omaha hospitals, kennel mats for the Plattsmouth Animal Shelter, and filled soup jars for
Cass County food banks.
