UNK Students Collect Canned Goods During Homecoming Week


More than 4,000 pounds of food was collected during the recent University of Nebraska at Kearney Canned Food Build.

The homecoming teams accomplished a lot throughout the week, and the Canned Food Build is a great way to have the teams come together to accomplish something that impacts the Kearney community.

The food build was organized by the Loper Programming and Activities Council, and the event was held Sept. 17 as part of UNK Homecoming Week activities. The food that was collected is being donated to the Mid-Nebraska Food Bank and The Big Blue Cupboard, a UNK organization that combats student hunger.

The Mid-Nebraska Food Bank will receive 3,624 pounds of food, and the Big Blue Cupboard will receive 400 pounds of food.
The Big Blue Cupboard food pantry is visited daily by UNK students who might be waiting on their next paycheck to buy food or who are supporting their family while attending school.
The first-place winners of the Canned Food Build were Alpha Xi Delta, Pi Kappa Alpha and Sigma Lambda Gamma with their creation of a jukebox.

Participating teams included Randall/Men’s Halls; Mantor Hall; Gamma Phi Beta, Sigma Phi Epsilon and Lambda Theta Nu; Alpha Xi Delta, Pi Kappa Alpha and Sigma Lambda Gamma; Alpha Phi, Phi Delta Theta, Sigma Lambda Beta and Sigma Tau Gamma; Centennial Towers West; Centennial Towers East; Antelope and Nester Halls; and Alpha Omicron Pi, Phi Gamma Delta, Alpha Tau Omega and Mu Sigma Upsilon.

Residence halls, sororities, fraternities and other organizations compete for points throughout Homecoming Week during events such as the Canned Food Build, Battle of the Brains, Spirit Competition and the Lip Sync Competition. The team with the most points at the end of week becomes the Homecoming Sweepstakes Champion.

This year’s sweepstakes winner was the team of Alpha Phi, Phi Delta Theta, Sigma Lambda Beta and Sigma Tau Gamma.

Michael Peterson Found Dead In His Cell




(LINCOLN, Neb.) Michael Peterson assigned to the Lincoln 
Correctional Center in Lancaster County was found dead at 
6:14 am on September 22, 2014. Mr. Peterson, 59, began 
serving a life sentence on 05/28/2014 for 1st Degree Murder (Buffalo County). 
Mr. Peterson had no parole eligibility or tentative release date. 
At approximately 6:14 am on September 22nd, Mr. Peterson was found 
unresponsive in his cell. Staff immediately called 911 and began administering 
CPR. Lincoln Fire and Rescue arrived and took over the resuscitation. Efforts to 
resuscitate Mr. Peterson were not successful and he was pronounced dead at 
6:47 am. While the cause of death has not been determined, it appears to have 
been a suicide. Mr. Peterson next of kin was contacted. 
As is the case whenever an inmate dies in the custody of the Nebraska 
Department of Correctional Services, a grand jury will conduct an investigation.
Muddy Creek to Ord transmission line project
open house events scheduled by NPPD


Columbus, Neb. – Two open houses will be hosted by Nebraska Public Power District next week concerning the development of a line route for a new 115,000-volt transmission line from a new substation, to be called Muddy Creek and located near an existing transmission line east of Broken Bow, to an existing substation near Ord. The line will enhance the reliability of the transmission network in the immediate area.


The two open houses will focus on gathering information from landowner’s who have property within a study area that has been developed by the District. The first open house for the 42-mile long line will be held September 30 at the Broken Bow City Auditorium, 314 S. 10th Avenue, in Broken Bow. A second open house will be held on Wednesday, October 1, at the Exhibit Hall at the Valley County Fairgrounds, 801 S Street, in Ord.


Project representatives will be available to discuss this project at the Open Houses from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Attendees should allow at least 45 minutes to walk through the displays and provide landowner information.


The new line will play a vital role in enhancing the reliability of the transmission system in central Nebraska where NPPD had voltage and loading issues in 2012, according to NPPD Chief Operating Officer Tom Kent. “A prolonged period of high temperatures in July 2012 combined with drought-like conditions, resulted in NPPD setting a record for peak electrical load needed by customers of 3,030 megawatts,” he explained. The result was that NPPD’s transmission system in the central part of the state was stretched to the limit during the record load period.


Over the past two years, NPPD has temporarily located additional mobile generators in the central part of the state during the summer months in order to help maintain reliability of the transmission system.


The need for the line was identified through the Southwest Power Pool’s transmission planning process, which is performed annually to assess system upgrades. The approximately $34 million transmission project is expected to be in service in June of 2018. Along with the transmission line work, the project also includes upgrades to the existing Ord substation and construction of a new substation east of Broken Bow.


Landowners in the study area have been sent invitations to attend either of these two open house events. NPPD officials noted that no routes have been determined at this time. At the open houses NPPD will collect information from landowners on land use, pivots, wells, planned facilities, residences, and other information. Each landowner will have the opportunity to identify this information and have it recorded into a GIS system that will be used in developing potential corridors for the lines.


“We invite landowners to come to either open house and give us information about their property, future plans, unique situations, locations of pivots and wells,” said Senior Project Manager Mike Hasenkamp. “This is valuable information that allows the project team to develop a line route that will minimize the overall impact.”


Additional information will be available on the need for the project, the route selection process, right-of-way activities, easement compensation, engineering, and environmental considerations.


The open house is one phase of NPPD’s comprehensive public involvement process that is used on its transmission line projects. To develop line routes for the project, NPPD will meet extensively with the public to obtain comments and other valuable information needed for the route-siting/decision making process, beginning with the public open house sessions. NPPD will use a variety of communication methods to interact with area landowners; local, county, and state government officials; and representatives of appropriate regulatory agencies.




The upcoming round of open houses will be the first of four rounds of public informational meetings NPPD plans to host. The first three rounds will be open houses and the fourth round will be a required public hearing.
