  Our Free Community Classified Ads have become very popular the last 90 days, as folks start cleaning out closets and basements preparing for a Fresh Spring start.

I was asked if the Free Classifieds could be used for Barter - meaning - I need new shingles on my shed, and I will trade for some website work kinda deal or lawn mowing.

  Or I have a Honda motorcycle and would like to trade for plum preserves.

LOTS of plum preserves!

Well, why the heck not!

Just post what you have a surplus of, and/or some talent you can offer and what you are looking for in exchange. Folks can post their offers, in the form of comments on your ad, and then the rest of us can guage what deals work, and what the going rate is. All the fun of an Auction, .. but quiet.

From the Office of 
Senator Dave Pankonin
For Immediate Release: My Personal Bills for 2009 - Part II

March 20, 2009, Lincoln - In 2008 I was asked by the Amputee Coalition of Nebraska to introduce a bill to require that prosthetic limbs be covered by insurance plans in Nebraska. The lifetime for artificial limbs depends on many factors, including age, activity level and overall health status. The Veterans Administration and the National Guard offer coverage, without limitations, for limbs that are lost during active duty. However, private insurance companies have been modifying policies to include caps for prosthetic coverage. Insurance coverage for prosthetic limbs would ultimately save money, because individuals who receive proper care could lead productive lives and avoid the need for assistance from the state Medicaid program. The bill was not advanced by the Banking, Commerce and Insurance Committee last year, because Committee members wanted to know the cost of this coverage to employers and policyholders.  

The Amputee Coalition commissioned a cost study and found that the average impact on premiums would be 0.03% to 0.06% for commercial insurance policyholders in Nebraska. I am one of those small business employers, who provides health insurance. I have studied the numbers and personally think the minimal potential cost for my business and for me is worth it to provide a higher quality of life to those who need this coverage.

I introduced LB 149 this year to, again, seek insurance coverage for prosthetic limbs. The leading private insurance provider in Nebraska offered, and I accepted, amendment language to secure the provider’s support for LB 149. Eleven states have already passed legislation that is similar to LB 149. Hopefully, Nebraska will soon offer this help to its citizens. 

Frequently a senator becomes the point-person in the body for on-going policy matters. Former Senators Ray Janssen and Vickie McDonald filled this role for problem gambling issues in the Legislature. Before she left last year, Senator McDonald asked me to continue their work.  

The Nebraska Lottery was created by a popular vote and action by the Legislature. The citizens who voted for the lottery did so, in part, because they were assured that Lottery revenue would benefit education, the environment, and, more recently, the State Fair, and that treatment would be available to individuals, for whom problem gambling is an addictive disorder. The Lottery Act created a program within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to manage gambling services. The Act also created the State Committee on Problem Gambling to make funding and policy decisions to guide the work that is done at DHHS. 

This year I attended the governor’s proclamation signing to name March as Problem Gambling Awareness Month. I participated in a legislative breakfast briefing that was attended by other senators, gambling counselors, recovering gamblers and members of the State Committee on Problem Gambling. I also introduced LB 189 to make technical corrections to the statutes that pertain to problem gambling services. LB 189 was signed by the governor in February. 

As the state continues its sponsorship of gambling activities and benefits from the revenues they generate, more and more individuals will become problem gamblers. The state must provide help for these problem gamblers and everyone else who is adversely impacted by their behavior. As the need for help increases, so, too, will the need for policy makers who understand the problems and are willing to act. 

LB 377 was introduced in response to federal law changes under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act. LB 377 would potentially allow Nebraska governmental units to credit enhance their bonds with letters of credit issued by or confirmed by a U.S. governmental enterprise, such as the Federal Home Loan Bank of Topeka. Such a letter would greatly enhance the bond’s marketability to provide lower interest costs for the governmental unit. LB 377 would give political subdivisions the authority to take advantage of the new federal changes through 2010. The bill is awaiting Final Reading and will become law when it is signed by the governor. 

I appreciate the opportunity you have given me to represent District 2 in the Nebraska Legislature.

Before - and - After
Corn Husker Syndrome
I had a bit of a Shock Recently
A very old friend sent a picture from years past, and I realized how much I had changed. You know what I mean. You have that moment, looking at an old photo and it all becomes clear. There is something about Nebraska that just changes you on a molecular level.
It is just The Good Life, Good Food, Good Air, Good People
Hard Work, Peace of Mind
You know, they have those photos in the back of women's magazines, 
The Before 
After Shots
where they try to  convince her to buy a miracle weight loss pill, or some cosmetics. I really think Nebraska could do something similar, and market the Happiness and Peace of Mind that comes from living here by the Platte.
