Cherry County Commissioners

Two of the three Cherry County Commissioners were able to make the regular board meeting held yesterday in Valentine. Commissioners Jim Van Winkle and Mark Adamson were able to attend, but Jerry Adamson was kept away by the winter storm. The commissioners discussed the Justice Center Administrators position which was left vacant with the recent resignation of Kathy Hammond. The board composed a job description and application and will proceed with advertising the position. Application forms are available at the Clerk’s office.

Gary Weaver updated the board on the emergency 911 recording system in the justice center. The commissioners voted to proceed with the upgrade for new equipment. The board tabled action on the amended dispatchers policy and procedure manual.

An inter-local agreement with the Niobrara Council was approved to help promote a community Firewise program with the Council administering the Title 3 funding. John Blake from Adrian Smiths office updated the commissioners on the congressman’s activities and discussed wind energy, gun control and “in lieu of tax payments” on federal lands. The rest of Tuesday’s meeting dealt with routine business items.


Spring Storm

Violent winds from a cold front have whipped through several parts of Nebraska, damaging buildings, toppling power poles and injuring at least one person.   The front also dropped heavy rain in some areas, including more than 3.5 inches in central Nebraska's Rockville.  North Bend officials told the Fremont Tribune that two people were inside a home that was heavily damaged by an estimated 65-mph gust, and one of them was taken to Fremont Area Medical Center for treatment.  University of Nebraska at Kearney spokeswoman Kelly Bartling says the roof of the university library was heavily damaged, with pieces of it strewn throughout the campus.  To the west in the Nebraska Panhandle, heavy snow has forced the closure of several highways, including Interstate 80 into Wyoming. The storm with the potential to drop 20 inches of snow bore down on South Dakota Tuesday, a day after heavy snow created bad travel conditions in part of North Dakota.  The National Weather Service issued various storm advisories, watches and warnings for South Dakota. Forecasters said the storm moving across the Rocky Mountains and Greats Plains packed heavy snow, sleet, freezing rain and strong winds.   South Dakota Transportation official Greg Fuller said spring storms aren't unusual, but they can be dangerous.   Numerous accidents were reported Monday in southwest North Dakota, where up to a foot of snow was reported. An oil tanker crashed near South Heart and spilled what authorities called a minimal amount of oil.
