The public is invited to attend and ask questions and view some of the never before seen video from some of the investigations. All admission will go to help fund Centennial Hall.

 

Pinnacle Bank Donates $25,000

 

Pinnacle Bank has donated $25,000 to the local area fire relief fund to help those affected by the wildfires along the Niobrara River Valley this summer. Justin Hammond of Pinnacle Bank presented the donation check, thanking area volunteers and volunteer firemen for their efforts during this extremely trying year for Nebraska and the Midwest.

 

A total of 118,523 acres were affected in the wild fires, and the cost to fight the fires and losses to public property could top $8 million. The North Central Development Center in Ainsworth has set up a fund for monetary donations to assist the fire departments and those who lost homes and other property to the fires. Checks can be mailed to the North Central Development Center at 335 N. Main St., Ainsworth, NE 69210. Include the words fire relief in the check's memo. All donations are tax deductible, and 100 percent of the funds donated will go toward the fire departments and those affected by the wildfires.

Adrian Smith on USPS

Washington, DC – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) issued the following statement today encouraging constituents to participate in United States Postal Service (USPS) surveys on reduced retail hours at certain post office locations:

“The Postal Service is considering changes to retail hours at 13,000 post offices nationwide, including many in Nebraska’s Third District.  I encourage all residents who would be impacted by these changes to complete the USPS survey.  Doing so allows the Postal Service to determine the best path forward for individuals and businesses in every community.  Your input will be considered in the final decision.  Nebraskans can contact my office if they have questions or concerns.”

USPS will conduct an evaluation process of the proposed reduced hours at 13,000 post office locations over the next two years.  The evaluation will consist of a customer survey and a public meeting.  Until these meetings are complete, no changes will be made.  Surveys will be mailed to affected zip codes and available at post offices.

A complete list of Post Offices affected by the proposal is available at: http://about.usps.com/news/electronic-press-kits/our-future-network/welcome.htm

 

Phone Scam Alert

According to the Cherry County Sheriff's Office, several residents in the area have been receiving phone calls from a person suggesting that they represent the FBI, and are installing security systems.  The FBI does not conduct such operations, and this is a scam.  Another version of the scam ironically states that the FBI will put a block on your phone to protect from robo-calls and telemarketers.  This is also false.

As always, never give any personal information to anyone over the phone if you did not initiate the call.  If you do receive one of these scam calls or any call which you think may be fraudulent, contact the Cherry County Sheriff's Office at 402-376-1890.
