Gov. Pete Ricketts will be in Norfolk this afternoon to help OCT Pipe break ground on its new million-square-foot plant northeast of Norfolk. The ceremony starts at 2:30 about a half-mile east of the intersection of Victory Rd. and Magnet Drive. Other featured guest speakers include OCT Pipe owner and CEO Charley Havens and Nucor CEO John Ferriola. OCT will employ approximately 180 at its Norfolk plant which is set to open in the summer of 2017. 

The National Weather Service says a tornado that skipped along a few blocks of northwest Omaha was rated EF1, packing winds of 86 through 110 mph. The service says the tornado stayed on the ground for about eight blocks and seemed to bob up and down after it struck around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday. It toppled a few trees, damaged others and knocked down some fences before dissipating about four minutes later. No injuries were reported. 

Nebraska will continue to press its legal case against Colorado for legalizing marijuana. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to take a case filed by Nebraska and Oklahoma. Now, both states have asked the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver to join a lawsuit against the law filed by Colorado law enforcement and landowners.

A working group is developing a system for doling out $40-million for county bridge improvements across Nebraska. The matching program comes from the Transportation Innovation Act, which was signed into law last week. Nebraska Department of Roads’ State Bridge Engineer Mark Traynowicz is part of the working group and says the group will consider a lot of input when creating the distribution method. 

Unusual plants, gardening plants and lots of information will be available at the 24th annual Master Gardeners Plant Fair this weekend in Norfolk.

Master gardeners will be available both days to answer questions and help with landscape and plant questions. 

A two-hour conversation on human trafficking is planned Friday at First Baptist Church, 404 W. Benjamin Ave. in Norfolk.

The public session is scheduled from 1 to 3.
