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)

IT HAPPENED IN SPRINGFIELD HISTORY

Centennial Wagon copy

 

In 1982 Springfield celebrated its centennial year with special festivities and events on July 3rd & 4th. Featured in the 2p.m. Centennial Day Parade was an 80-year-old high wheel farm wagon with an original spring seat. The wagon still had the original paint and black tires. It had never been overhauled and was still in use on the farm. The tractor and a cultivator were purchased from Grube and Thompson Implement Dealers in Papillion for $1500 by Ben Cain. His son, Harold Cain, drove the wagon accompanied by his wife, Pauline, using a 1953 John Deere A tractor with full burner.
