I am disappointed and saddened to announce that the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department has decided not to sign a contract with Project Lifesaver. This is a huge blow to not only the Autism community, but also the entire disabled population.
On October 20 of this year, my Autism Advocate friends, Renee Kiernan, Shawn Neff, Carol Salber and I met with Sheriff Tim Dunning, Captain Tom Wheeler, Chief Deputy Marty Bilek and other staff members at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department to discuss the use of a tracking device known as Project Lifesaver. (Click here for details on the device and how it works.)

Update, 5:45pm, August 16: Jon Bruning personally dropped off some sleeping bags today at the Bold office. Actions matter. We also added a new drop-off location in Omaha where you can drop-off a sleeping bag. And, we created an Amazon wish-list so you can just buy one from your computer and ship it to our office. We will be collecting sleeping bags until the end of September.

In the State of the State address Governor Heineman said his bold budget is centered on two priorities: jobs and education.
We find it interesting that a conservative who doesn’t think the government can create jobs is saying now (his) government somehow can... but that is not the focus of this post.

Looks like Governor Heineman is taking a page out of the same bully handbook that TransCanada used on landowners earlier this month.
Except Heineman isn’t bullying Nebraska landowners, he's bullying education groups.
