Senators to tour area Nebraska senators and consultants will be coming to Niobrara on Aug. 25 and Aug. 26, regarding LB 406, which was recently passed. The officials will be touring the area, and the village of Niobrara will be hosting a breakfast for them, served by the Niobrara-Verdel Presbyterian Church women. To recap LB 406, Senator Mike Flood, Legislative District 19, and Senator Tim Gragert, Legislative District 40, were at Niobrara in May, gathering input from area residents and businesses, regarding the bill, which at that time hadn’t passed in Legislature, but was very likely to pass. The senators’ “Idea Raiser” event at Niobrara State Park drew lots of interest and attracted about 50 people including Nebraska Game and Parks officials, Niobrara residents and business people, residents from other towns in the county, county economic development staff, Ponca Tribe officials and Nebraska Tourism Commission’s executive director, John Ricks.

Niobrara Village Clerk Mona Weatherwax informed the village board, at its regular meeting, Tuesday, Aug. 3, that those funds, which totaled $29,910.33 have been received. The funds can be used for water infrastructure, so the village board plans to look at updating the village’s water meters, so they can be read electronically, rather than manually.

Potential Air Quality Impacts from Wildfires in Canada Lincoln – An advisory of possible Moderate (yellow category) to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (orange category) impacts may occur statewide in Nebraska beginning August 3 through August 4. Intermittent Unhealthy (red category) impacts in certain areas are also possible. Impacts may continue at the Moderate AQI level through the weekend. During yellow category/moderate conditions, sensitive groups should consider limiting prolonged outdoor exertion. When conditions rise to the orange category, sensitive groups are advised to reduce prolonged outdoor exertion. In red category/unhealthy conditions, sensitive groups should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion and consider moving activities indoors or rescheduling; others should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion and take more breaks during outdoor activities. Wildfires in Canada and the western U.S. may affect the air quality in Nebraska. Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy staff monitor smoke levels and wind directions to assess when impacts to Nebraska's air quality may occur. Smoke advisories are issued for impacted areas by notifying the media and local health departments, and posting information on the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy's (NDEE) webpages and social media sites. Advisories help citizens protect their health by alerting them to days where outdoor activities should be reduced or avoided to minimize exposure to smoke. Advisories are based on data provided by National Weather Service, smoke plume modeling, and from air quality monitors located in Omaha, Bellevue, Lincoln, Grand Island, and Scottsbluff. The following Air Quality Index (AQI) is used. This AQI is used nationally. For an hourly update on air quality across Nebraska, visit https://www.airnow.gov.
