News Briefs:

It could be a year or more before any decision is made on Our Savior Lutheran Church’s wish to purchase land in southwest Norfolk for a new church facility.  Vulcraft has filed an appeal of a Madison County District Court ruling that upheld a decision by the city’s planning administrator in the case. City Attorney Clint Schukei says it would not be unusual for the Appeals Court to take as much as a year to make a decision. 

An interlocal agreement is being crafted to facilitate work on the Elkhorn River south of Norfolk in an area that threatens the railroad bridge that washed out in the flood of 2010.  At last week’s meeting of the Lower Elkhorn NRD, Norfolk City Administrator Shane Weidner talked about the project and the plan for the NRD, Madison County Railroad Transportation District and railroad to cooperate without federal involvement. Estimated cost of building jetties and other structures to change the course of the Elkhorn River at the site is $2.4 million. 

Norfolk Public Schools Board of Education has hired a law firm to represent the district in its two-year-old hail-claim dispute with Zurich Insurance. Associate Supt. Business Services Bill Robinson recommended to the board at its meeting Thursday, that it engage in an agreement with Merlin Law Group. Robinson said Merlin specializes in property claims and that representatives indicated the district has a solid case. He also pointed out that in cases of large multi-million dollar property claims, it’s typical for the litigation and mediation processes take a long time to complete. 

Nebraska will receive $1.48 million from a pharmaceutical company to settle allegations that the drug maker knowingly underpaid rebates owed to the Nebraska's Medicaid drug rebate program. Atty. Gen.  Doug Peterson announced the agreement Monday with Wyeth, a wholly owned subsidiary of Pfizer, Inc. The rebates in questions were for the drugs Protnix Oral and Protonix IV between 2001 and 2006. 

Land south of Fremont near the Hormel plant along Old Hwy. 275, has surfaced as a possible site for a chicken processing plant.  Mayor Scott Getzschman says the 400-acre parcel is among several area sites under consideration. Costco Wholesale Corp. has ramped up its site search for the plant since the Nickerson Village Board voted against it last month. Opponents fear the plant's potential impact on schools and housing. Supporters say the plant would create 1,100 new jobs and provide other financial benefits to the community. 

A prayer vigil will be held Wednesday night for John Davies, an area physician’s assistant who is waiting for a liver transplant.  The vigil will begin at 8 p.m. tomorrow in the parking lot of the Sunny Meadow Clinic.  Those attending the vigil are asked to wear green, the color identified with organ donation. 

What do you get when you turn the Star Wars trilogy into a “musical”?  You get Lincoln playwright Curt Bright’s “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Death Star.” Northeast Community College students are performing the comedy Thursday through Sunday at the Cox Activities Theater. Performances are scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 and Sunday afternoon at 2. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and available at the door. 

Several Northeast Nebraska communities have ballot issues that will be decided at the May 10 primary election. Check out the details in Tuesday’s Norfolk Daily News.
