News Briefs:

Nebraska's new economic development director is out after a little more than eight months on the job.  Gov. Pete Ricketts announced Thursday that Brenda Hicks-Sorensen no longer holds the position. Taylor Gage, a spokesman for Ricketts, says the decision to change leadership was made by the governor. Ricketts says in a statement that it became clear to him that Nebraska needs to do more to market the state nationally and globally. An interim director will be named shortly, and a new search will be start right away. 

The decision by ConAgra to move its headquarters from Omaha to Chicago will cost Nebraska 1,500 jobs. Governor Pete Ricketts says he has talked with ConAgra CEO Sean Connolly several times over the past few weeks, and Connolly has assured him that changes in Nebraska are just part of a larger restructuring of the company.  Ricketts says ConAgra’s decision is a reminder that Nebraska must continually look for new ways to ensure tax rates and incentive programs remain competitive. 

In order to attract more businesses – and more workers – to Nebraska, the Nebraska State Chamber of Commerce and Industry says we need to lower income tax rates.  Joe Young, executive vice president of the State Chamber’s Vision Nebraska, says the average Nebraskan pays 32-percent of his income in state and federal taxes, a statistic that impacts the state’s ability to recruit workers. Young discussed the state’s tax climate with local Chamber members at a legislative luncheon Thursday in Norfolk. 

If a site in Norfolk is accepted for the EPA’s Superfund National Priorities List, it will continue a process to clean up the property that actually began last year. Scott Zaruba, manager of Black Hills Energy in Norfolk, says the responsible company for the site at 7th Street and Norfolk Avenue is actually Centel Corp  He says last year, Centel removed and replaced 10,000 tons of soil from the site, and a parking lot was poured on the property. Superfund listing would provide money to clean up contamination in the groundwater below the site. 

The attorney representing Nebraska landowners fighting TransCanada is relieved the company has dropped the case. Dave Domina represents more than 100 Nebraska landowners fighting the use of eminent domain to acquire the easements to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline through Nebraska. TransCanada has announced it will end eminent domain proceedings. Dave Domina says the action indicates the company thought its position was weak. 

Fifty-four-and-12. That’s the record for Norfolk’s three high school varsity football teams in home games since the field at Veterans’ Memorial Park was upgraded to artificial turf. And Norfolk High fans are hoping to make that 55-and-12 tonight, when the seventh-ranked Panthers host top-ranked Millard West. Norfolk Senior High Activities Director Dennis Dolliver says he is proud of the community whenever he gets to welcome visiting teams to the updated facility that includes roomy locker rooms, improved seating for fans and enough paved parking for 511 vehicles. 

The tree population at Norfolk’s Skyview Park has increased by ten after Norfolk Parks Division employees teamed up with horticulture students form Northeast Community College to plant them. The new trees were placed along the trail on the north side of the lake.

Happiness is having a large loving, caring, close-knit family; especially if they live in another city.
