News Briefs:

Nebraska’ six Republican gubernatorial candidates took their places on the stage of Norfolk’s Johnny Carson Theatre last night for their final scheduled debate before the May 13th primary. Each candidate took his turn answering questions from a panel of media representatives and high school students. While all articulated similar views on many of the issues from favoring lower property taxes and reduced spending, to opposing same-sex marriage and Medicaid expansion; they used their closing statements to try to set themselves apart from the others.  It was the final of three such forums staged the state GOP. The candidates met earlier this year in Papillion and Broken Bow. GOP gubernatorial candidates are State Attorney General John Bruning, State Auditor Mike Foley, State Senators Tom Carlson and Beau McCoy, Omaha businessman Pete Ricketts and western attorney and businessman Bryan Slone. 

Norfolk’s first Norfolk 101: Citizens’ Academy is history.  The 17 graduates were honored at this week’s City Council meeting. The group met every Tuesday night for eight weeks and visited the police and fire divisions, wastewater treatment plant, Norfolk Housing Agency and more. Class Coordinator Diane Becker says signup is underway for the second Norfolk 101 class and anyone interested should contact her at the city office. 

Area citizens are invited to rock the night away tomorrow in Wayne as the Change a Life Tour comes to town to raise money for tornado relief. Pastor Josh Siebers with the Wayne United Methodist Church says the tornado may have hit Wayne more than six months ago – but the need is still there. The concert begins at 6:30 tomorrow night in the Wayne Community Activity Center. Bands include Audio Adrenalin, Kutless and Finding Favour. Tickets will cost $15 at the door.  The entire ticket price will go for tornado relief and to help provide new equipment to the Wayne Fire Department. 

Tomorrow is Arbor Day and the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District is celebrating with a special offer. Forrester Pam Bergstrom says she and other NRD workers will be at Maskenthine Lake Recreation Area north of Stanton selling conservation-grade seedlings in bundles of 25 for $23.

Lower Elkhorn NRD representatives will be at Maskenthine tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
