News Briefs:

Authorities in Allen say two people have been injured following a small chemical explosion at a restaurant. Fire Chief Rod Strivens says a man and a woman sustained injuries in a blast that was reported around 5 p.m. Thursday at a restaurant that was closed at the time. Strivens says the man and woman were using cleaning supplies in a bathroom at the facility when a minor fire ignited. The fire, which caused minimal damage to the building, was quickly extinguished. A statement from the Dixon County Sheriff's Office says EMS crews transported two victims with burns to a hospital. The extent of their injuries wasn't immediately clear, and they were not identified.


Dedication and ribbon cutting ceremonies were held yesterday for the new Applied Technology Building on the Northeast Community College campus. The $9.1-million, 67,000 square foot building is located on the northwest edge of the campus. Another new building, the maintenance, shipping and receiving facility, is located in the same area.


About 170 State employees from across Northeast Nebraska were honored Thursday for their years of service at a ceremony at the Norfolk Veterans Home. Lieutenant Governor Mike Foley presided over the event to recognize employees for 10, all the way up to 50 years of service. The Norfolk ceremony was one of seven planned across the state during Employee Recognition Month.


Two Norfolk banks have earned recognition as $2-million Club Lenders for the 2015 fiscal year, from the U-S Department of Agriculture Rural Development. State director and former Lieutenant Governor Maxine Moul was in Norfolk Thursday to present plaques to representatives of Elkhorn Valley Bank and Trust, and Bank First. USDA guarantees loans for low-income families to purchase homes in rural communities.


Reorganization within the Norfolk city administration has led to a change in the support staff for the Norfolk Planning Commission. Faythe Petersen has served as secretary for the body for the past 21 years. Tuesday, the Commission appointed Stacey Hansen as the new Planning Commission secretary. Petersen will remain with the Fire Division and Region 11 Emergency Management. Hansen was moved from the Fire Division to the City Administration building when Valerie Grimes was hired as a full-time city planner.
