News Briefs:

The 7-year-old cancer patient who became an Internet sensation for his touchdown run in Nebraska's spring football game has yet another fan - President Barack Obama. Jack Hoffman, his family and former Cornhuskers running back Rex Burkhead visited Obama for 15 minutes in the Oval Office on Monday. Jack's father, Andy Hoffman, said Obama presented his son with a new football and told him he was proud of him.  Burkhead befriended Jack shortly after the boy was diagnosed with brain cancer. Their friendship grew into the "Team Jack" campaign that has raised awareness and funds for research. Jack's 69-yard TD run has been viewed almost 8 million times on YouTube.  Sen. Deb Fischer helped arrange the Washington visit for the Hoffmans, of Atkinson and Burkhead.

In response to complaints from citizens, Norfolk Police are actively working to eliminate unregistered vehicles from yards and empty lots.  Police Captain Leon Chapman says the storage of unlicensed, inoperable, wrecked or junked vehicles and trailers is not allowed within the city limits of Norfolk on residential or private property.  Uniformed officers are making contact with residents and property owners, asking for a current license or registration. If one is not available, the resident or property owner has 30 days to rectify the problem, either making sure the vehicle is properly licensed and registered, or removed from the property.  Failure to either move or license the vehicle can lead to a citation and a fine of $500 plus court hosts. Each day the vehicle is not moved or licensed can result in a separate citation and fine.

 

Norfolk’s annual Loyalty Day Parade will be held tomorrow in downtown Norfolk.  The parade route begins at 4 p.m. in the Salvation Army parking lot at the corner of 7th Street and Norfolk Avenue. Participants will walk east on Norfolk Avenue to Second Street, north on Second to Braasch, and west on Braasch to the Salvation Army parking lot.  The Loyalty Day Parade is sponsored by Norfolk VFW Post 1644. Residents are invited to either walk in the parade or line the parade route and show their patriotism by waving U.S. flags.
