Voters head to the polls Tuesday to cast ballots in special school elections. In Sioux City, a candidate will be elected to finish out the unexpired term of Nancy Mounts, who resigned from the board over a year ago for health reasons. John Meyers was appointed to the seat. He is running for the position along with Paul Speidel, Jacqueline Ritter, and Paul Gorski. A vacant seat will also be filled on the Westwood Community School Board.
Voters will also decide on a $400,000 tax levy to pay for new equipment at Western Iowa Tech Community College. Voting on the levy will take place at the Woodbury County Courthouse, the Sloan Community Hall, and the Anthon Community Center. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at all three locations.
Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman has begun the search for a new lieutenant governor. Rick Sheehy resigned from that post over the weekend when questions were raised about his use of a state-issued cell phone to make calls to multiple women. Heineman hopes to have a list of up to 15 candidates in the coming weeks. He can't choose a sitting state senator while the legislature is in session, and says he won't pick anyone wanting to run for governor next year.

Crews have been working since then to restore the fields. They have planted new grass and trees and installed an improved sprinkler system. Officials say half of the fields will be ready this spring and the rest will be ready by the summer.
