News Briefs:

Votes matter. That is the message Governor Pete Ricketts is delivering to Nebraska Republicans. Ricketts says the Nebraska Republican Party must hold state senators accountable when they vote against positions spelled out in the party platform, and has even backed some candidates running against incumbent senators who voted against the party platform. The Unicameral is officially non-partisan, but many senators campaign as Republicans, Democrats or Independents. 

Employers are working out the details in preparation for December’s implementation of new overtime pay rules for salaried employees. A White House directive now says salaried employees making less than $47,000 per year should be paid for overtime for working more than 40 hours per week. Nebraska’s 3rd District Congressman Adrian Smith says the one-size-fits-all approach won't work. Smith says he believes the rule will be challenged in court. 

During Governor Pete Ricketts' first two years as governor, the former corporate executive has repeatedly found himself at odds with business groups on some of their top legislative priorities. Ricketts fought proposals allowing driver's and professional licenses for young immigrants brought to the country illegally. The measure and others were backed by various business groups as ways to promote the state as business-friendly and address a workforce shortage. 

Nebraska has filed an official objection to federal transgender guidelines for public schools. Attorney General Doug Peterson has written the Departments of Education and Justice, objecting to the guideline which threatens the withdrawal of federal money if schools do not allow transgender individuals to use the bathroom of their choice. Governor Pete Ricketts backs the move and says the states and local schools should decide the issue. 

Authorities say 10 cases of mumps have been reported among students at Midland University in Fremont.  A state news release sent Friday says the Three Rivers Public Health Department received the initial reports and is working with state officials to investigate the cases. Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services figures show the state averaged less than three cases a year since 2011 but has 12 already this year. 

Three sessions of children’s swimming lessons are scheduled for Norfolk’s AquaVenture Water Park in June and July. AquaVenture Manager P.J. Evans says they’re $40 each, and there’s still time to sign up your children for each of the 10:20 a.m. sessions. Evans says if those dates and times don’t work out, you can get your child on the waiting lists for the 9:45 a.m., 7:40 p.m. and 8:20 p.m. classes for each of the sessions. For more information, click the AquaVenture icon on the City of Norfolk’s web page. 

This year marks Norfolk’s 150th birthday and the Norfolk Public Library celebrating with its summer speaker series. Five free special talks are scheduled, and each will highlight an aspect of the city’s heritage and history. The first talk is scheduled for Wednesday, May 25, at 6:30 PM at the Norfolk Library. For more information, check the city’s web page: CI.Norfolk.NE.US/Library.
