Property taxes, state parks eyed in Nebraska budget

March 3, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Property owners could get a tax break, state parks could get new cabins, and Nebraska could see new flood- and drought-mitigation projects if a series of budget bills become law.

The Legislature's Appropriations Committee is expected to finish its work this week on changes to the state budget. The tentative package includes $25 million for a state fund that offsets property taxes, $17.5 million for deferred park maintenance and $32 million for water projects by the middle of next year.

Midwife charged in death of Custer County infant

February 27, 2014

Judy K. Jones, 66 of Irene, S.D., was arraigned in Custer County District Court Feb. 20 on three felony charges: manslaughter, practicing without a license and criminal impersonation. All three charges are Class III felonies.
The charges against Jones stem from an incident in 2011, in which Jones was acting as a midwife in assisting a Custer County couple with the birth of their child. That child later died, allegedly due to improper care at birth by Jones.
