LINCOLN â€“ Nebraskaâ€™s courts helped children last year, but could improve court access by breaking language barriers using technology, said Supreme Court Chief Justice Michael Heavican during his State of the Judiciary speech Thursday.
Heavican told lawmakers in the Capitolâ€™s legislative chamber a pilot project in Omaha, North Platte and Scottsbluff to keep children from being jailed while being rehabilitated had higher results than the statewide average. During the first six months of the project, 80 percent completed probation successfully.
MERNA - - Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. It is an alarming statistic - but we are often inundated with alarming statistics and can tend to become complacent. That all changes when you put a face to the statistic - especially when the face is a sweet 4-year-old boy.
With all the talk of violence in our schools, and how to combat that issue, it now seems more important than ever to implement programs both at home and at school to teach kids proper values. That is exactly what the Kids of Character program at the Broken Bow elementary schools is all about.
