Two-vehicle accident by Filley injures two
GAGE COUNTY – On June 5 at approximately 7:01 p.m., the Filley Fire Department, Beatrice Fire & Rescue and Deputies from the Gage County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a report of a two-vehicle injury accident on Highway 136 near S. 162 Road.
According to the Gage County Sheriff’s Department, a Case IH Patriot Sprayer driven by Eric Burgett, 38, of Lewiston was westbound on Highway 136 east of S 162nd Road. A 2006 Nissan Altima driven by Daniel Buchanan, 34, of Beatrice was westbound and went to pass the Sprayer. The Sprayer began to turn south into a field drive, then turned back into the westbound lane of travel, when the driver saw the Altima in the eastbound lane coming up to pass him. The Altima drove back into the westbound lane at the same time, causing a collision between both vehicles.
Beatrice Fire and Rescue transported one male to Beatrice Community Hospital with a head injury. A second male was transported by a private vehicle to Beatrice Community Hospital. Restraints were in use and airbags were deployed in the Nissan. Neither alcohol nor drugs are believed to have been a factor in the accident. The accident is still under investigation by the Gage County Sheriff’s Office.
Property valuation protests may be filed until July 2 in Lancaster County
LINCOLN – Property owners in Lancaster County have until Monday, July 2nd to file a property valuation protest with the Lancaster County Clerk’s Office. County Clerk Dan Nolte is encouraging people interested in filing to do so as early as possible.
“Filing early gives those wishing to have a hearing with a real estate referee the greatest selection of dates and times,” said Nolte. “Those waiting to file until the last week in June will see that selection narrow - especially the evening and Saturday time slots.” Hearings will begin in late June and conclude in mid-July.
As in past years, valuation protest hearings will be held at the Lancaster Event Center at 84th and Havelock Streets.
Protests can be filed electronically at lancaster.ne.gov (keyword: protest). Those who file electronically can also select a hearing date and time.
If you wish to file in person, the County Clerk’s Office is located at the County-City Building, 555 S. 10th Street, Room 108 in Lincoln. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
For more information on the property valuation protest process or to obtain a protest form, please contact the County Clerk’s Office at 402-441-8724 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Helicopter to make low-level flights over eastern Nebraska throughout remainder of June
Beginning in mid-June and lasting approximately two weeks, instruments mounted below a helicopter will collect and record geologic measurements to learn more about buried aquifers (glacial sands and gravels, sandstones and other water-bearing materials).
The LPSNRD and other members of the Eastern Nebraska Water Resources Assessment (ENWRA), a coalition of six NRDs in the eastern third of Nebraska, have planned the flights with help from the Nebraska Water Sustainability Fund, through the Nebraska Natural Resources Commission.
According to Katie Cameron, coordinator of ENWRA, “The flights will improve our understanding of available ground water and its possible connections with surface water in an area of the state made more complex by the presence of glacial deposits.”
Aqua Geo Frameworks (AGF), of Mitchell, Nebraska will oversee the flights, process data and produce a final report. The equipment can collect data at a speed of more than 50 miles per hour and explore to a depth of more than 700 feet below the ground surface. The helicopter will fly over parts of Lancaster, Seward, Saunders and Butler counties.
Cameron said the flights will be a continuation of ENWRA flights conducted during summer 2016 and will focus with more detail on several communities in the western part of the LPSNRD.
Scientific equipment is towed about 100 feet below the helicopter in a ‘spider web’ array and is designed to map geologic structures beneath the surface of the earth. The helicopter will be manned by experienced pilots specially trained for low-level flying with this equipment.
Similar flights have been made across Nebraska since 2007, according to Cameron, as NRDs seek to better understand and manage ground water resources.
