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

Mayor election

Duane E. Nietzel

Your vote counts in Springfield. In the 1998, after the polls closed it appeared that write-in candidate, Duane Neitzel, had lost by a mere one vote. Opposing candidate, Keith Chulpacek, spent election day at the office watching voter returns. With the vote so close, a recount was ordered. After the recount it was declared that Neitzel won the race by three votes. Neitzel was previously mayor from 1986-1990. He cited his past experience as mayor for helping win the race. Chulpacek was involved in several community projects and offered his help to mayor elect Neitzel with any future needs.

Sen. Rob Clements Column – Inheritance Taxes

November 2, 2020

 Between legislative sessions, my office has been working on a study that I introduced last session, LR 415, to reexamine Nebraska’s inheritance tax (death tax) system.  I would like to take this opportunity to discuss this with you.

On Tuesday, November 10, the Legislature’s Revenue Committee will have a public hearing on interim study LR 415, to examine Nebraska’s inheritance tax (death tax) as we look to improve the tax structure in the state.  It will be held at the Capitol, in Room 1525, at 1:30 p.m. November 10.  The public is welcome to testify in person or may testify by submitting written testimony to the Revenue Committee prior to the hearing via letter or email.  Regarding emailed testimony, please send to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., with LR 415 in the subject line, state your name in the body, and ask that your “testimony be added to the permanent record”.

The purpose of the study is to collect information from the counties that collect inheritance taxes and from the public to better understand whether to change it, replace it, or repeal it.  Currently, only five other states have some form of inheritance tax, which puts Nebraska as an outlier among our peers.  Our state ranks among the highest when comparing the rates of the other states.  Nebraska taxes heirs at one percent for children, 13 percent for relatives, and 18 percent for all others, which is the highest in the country.

I believe that we can do better as a state in this area.  We need to continue to give people more reasons to stay in our state and not leave.  This is why I am planning to bring a bill next session to move us forward, taking the information and feedback from this study to either change, replace, or repeal the inheritance tax.

On another note, the Nebraska Economic Forecasting Advisory Board met October 29th and raised the revenue forecast by $285 million for the current fiscal year FY2020-21, $118 million for FY2021-22, and $307 million for FY2022-23.  This is good news for Nebraskans who are still struggling to recover from the economic downturn due to the pandemic.  Improving revenues means our economy is recovering and people are getting back to work.

Feel free to contact me or my staff for assistance, information, or questions on issues.
