SARPY COUNTY OFFICES RESUMED FULL OPERATION

JUNE 15, 2020

Sarpy County offices resumed walk-in service starting Monday, June 15, while continuing to encourage the public to make appointments. 

Walk-ins will be accepted for services at all Sarpy County offices.  Please be aware that walk-ins may experience longer wait times than usual. To avoid these longer wait times, we recommend scheduling an appointment for in-person services. You can make an appointment on Sarpy.com


Restrictions are easing up on social gatherings and businesses in Nebraska. Please be mindful of social distancing guidelines established by our local health department and local officials to keep our community safe. 

The Springfield newsletter will continue to bring you news of announcements, important updates, fun tips, and maybe a joke or two just to lighten your day.

Check in for current information of up-to-the minute news. We will do what we can to make it through these times. Take care and hang in there everyone!

SARPY COUNTY HELP LINE

The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office along with Sarpy County Human Services has established a help line for the citizens of Sarpy County during the COVID-19 pandemic event. Starting today, people who are sick, elderly, or caretakers of this demographic in Sarpy County may call the Sarpy County Sheriff Helpline at 402-593-1593 for needs such as picking up prescriptions, groceries, or other necessities. A uniformed Sarpy County Sheriff's Deputy will pick up and deliver these items in a marked police cruiser. This helpline may also be utilized by the general public to make non-emergency police reports via telephone that do not require a police officer present in their home.

The following providers are participating in this program:

Walmart in Papillion
Target in Papillion (Groceries Only)
Bakers at 36th St & Twin Creek Dr
Bakers at 801 Galvin Rd (Pharmacy Only)
Springfield Drug (Pharmacy Only)

Please check the Sheriff's Office website and Facebook Page for any new updates to this program.

IT HAPPENED IN SPRINGFIELD HISTORY

Nina

 

Nina Meisinger was the “voice” of Springfield for forty-six years. She began her career as a reporter for the Springfield Monitor newspaper on April 1, 1940 and continued until she retired in 1986. Nina was the manager and correspondent for the weekly newspaper. She was also known as the “Cookie Lady” to all Springfield children.  She loved to pass out cookies to any child who happened to be passing by her home on 2nd and Chestnut.  She was married to Joe Meisinger for fifty-one years and had two sons, Donald and Gordon.  Nina died in 1995 at the age of 93.  She was much-loved in the Springfield community.


Funny Story

A priest buys a lawn mower at a yard sale. Back home, he pulls on the starter rope a few times with no results. He storms back to the yard sale and tells the previous owner, “I can’t get the mower to start!” “That’s because you have to curse to get it started,” says the man. “I’m a man of the cloth. I don’t even remember how to curse.” “You keep pulling on that rope, and it’ll come back to you.”
