County Puts Irrigators on Notice

June 16, 2010 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Irrigators in Antelope County should take notice of action taken last week by the Antelope County Board of Supervisors.

At their Tuesday meeting held June 8, the Supervisors passed a resolution concerning the watering of roadways by center pivot systems.

The resolution states that if a pivot is found to have watered a roadway, the violator will be given an initial warning from the Antelope County Sheriff’s Department. Any damage to the road will be repaired by the county road department and subsequently billed to the landowner.

Should the roadway be watered again, the landowner will be prosecuted under Nebraska State Statute 39-301, a class IV misdemeanor which would also include the cost of needed repairs to the road.

The status of the County Veteran Service officer was again discussed. The Supervisors had company this time as a number of veterans were in the audience.

State Senator Sullivan Meets With Constituents

June 16, 2010 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

On a rain-soaked Thursday morning, District #41 State Senator Kate Sullivan updated Elgin residents on developments at the Unicameral.

Her visit, sponsored by Great Plains Communications, was welcomed by more than 20 constituents who turned out at the Elgin Community Center to listen, ask questions and learn more about state government.

Sullivan, who earned her seat in the statehouse by defeating Paul Eurek back in 2008, was upbeat in her presentation. Admitting she didn’t know all the answers to the issues facing the state, she said she has relished every day the opportunity to serve the district. 

“It’s an awesome responsibility,” she said. “Very few understand how unique the Unicameral is, how open it is and how effective it is. Nebraska is the only state which has a one-house state government. Its senators are non-partisan, meaning they don’t represent any political party.” When a bill is before the legislature, its ordinary citizens, she said, who weigh in with their opinions before committee hearings.

Turning her attention to the recently completed 60-day session, Sullivan said state senators were forced to operate with a lack of budget money. With a $675 million projected deficit in the state budget, there were no new money bills proposed by legislators. The state has been operating on a $6.8 billion two-year budget, she said the Nebraska Constitution requires a balanced budget. As a result, legislators will be working to manage the deficit when they reconvene in January 2010.

Elgin Volunteers Help Fight Flood With Sandbags

June 16, 2010 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

There are some here who would like to see sunshine return. Since June 7, more than eight inches of rain have been recorded here in Elgin. Similar amounts, and in some cases more rainfall, to the north and west have caused flood conditions along local rivers and streams creating problems for our neighbors in Clearwater, Neligh, Oakdale and Tilden.

Volunteers from Elgin were called out Sunday night to go to Clearwater to help fill sandbags there to prevent rising waters from doing more damage to the community. According to Tony Levander, they were there through most of the night working. Volunteers also came from Tilden, Neligh and Oakdale

According to Faythe Petersen, emergency management coordinator for Antelope as well as Madison and Pierce counties, estimated that as many as 10,000 sand bags had been filled to combat flood waters at Clearwater.

At Neligh, Monday was considered the worst day as the Elkhorn River rose out of its banks and devastated all in its’ path.

Penn Park was under 3-4 feet of water as were Russell Park and Riverside Park. Spared at Riverside Park were the ball diamonds.

It was also reported that four homes were flooded, but that number could be low as many homeowners are dealing with water issues.

Highest Flows

Rainfall over the past few days in central Nebraska has resulted in high water and flooding in the Platte, Elkhorn, Loup, Niobrara, Republican, and Little Blue River basins. The Elkhorn and Loup basins have been hardest hit.

Two streamgages have broken long-standing records: the North Loup at Taylor streamgage reached its highest flow since the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Nebraska Water Science Center began recording water measurements at that site 73 years ago; the Elkhorn at Ewing streamgage reached its highest peak for both water level and flow since recording began 62 years ago. The Elkhorn at Waterloo streamgage currently is ranked at its second-highest flow rate in 80 years of record.
