News Briefs:

Physicians should be given a voice in the governance of Faith Regional Health Services. That seemed to be the shared request of the more than 300 people who attended a rally Thursday night to protest the termination of two long-time physicians three weeks ago. Speaking with reporters after the rally, Dr. Joe Metcalf talked about his dismissal on August 12th, saying he was offered the choice of resigning or being fired, and he chose to be fired. Metcalf said there is a divide between the medical staff and administration at the hospital that has grown wider over the past several years. He declined to talk about specifics, but said his concerns are shared by more than 80-percent of the physicians on staff at Faith Regional. The protesters lined the sidewalk on the south and east side of Faith Regional Hospital, holding signs that said things like “Dr. Metcalf saved my life,” and “Physician leaders need a voice.” 

Two men accused of stealing an ATM from a Hoskins bank have taken deals and pleaded guilty. A sentencing hearing is scheduled on Nov. 4 for 22-year-old Cody Murphree and 23-year-old Jacob Christiansen, both of Norfolk. Prosecutors dropped criminal mischief charges in exchange for the two men's guilty pleas to theft charges. A third man charged in the June 23 theft from Elkhorn Valley Bank & Trust in Hoskins pleaded not guilty on Wednesday. The trial of 24-year-old David Rhodes is scheduled to begin Dec. 8 in Wayne County District Court in Wayne. 

The Dodge County Assessor has resigned, and has been arrested. Brittny King has been accused by the State Property Tax Administrator of missing deadlines and filing incomplete work, and by the Dodge County Board for using the county credit card to buy gasoline for her personal car. The board supervisor says King’s actions have cost the county thousands of dollars. 

A legislative staffer who helped investigate Nebraska's corrections department will now serve as an official state watchdog for the agency. State Ombudsman Marshall Lux announced Thursday that Doug Koebernick has been chosen as the new inspector general for the Nebraska correctional system. The job was created as part of a prison reform law approved earlier this year. Koebernick was a key staffer for the Nebraska Legislature's special committee that investigated problems in the corrections department. 

Early this year, the Senate Appropriations Committee reported all 12 appropriations bills out of committee, giving Nebraska U.S. Senator Deb Fischer hope that the normal budget process would be carried out this year. But Fischer tells NewsTalk WJAG she soon found out that was not going to be the case, and it appears the government will operate another year on a continuing resolution. 

Nebraska motorists can celebrate the state's 150th anniversary with a new license plate, starting Oct. 1. Gov. Pete Ricketts and first lady Susanne Shore revealed the design Thursday for the Nebraska Sesquicentennial Commission's special issue license plate. The design uses the logo and branding unveiled in July for the anniversary celebration, set for 2017. Drivers can purchase the plates for $70 from the Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles.
