Thousands of blood donations are needed each and every day to help treat accident victims, cancer patients, children with blood disorders and others. These patients rely on generous volunteer blood donors to help save and sustain their lives.
At least three extra donors are needed at all August blood drives, above what’s currently expected, for the Red Cross to readily meet hospital and patient needs this month and into the fall. Feel free to share the attached infographic along with blood drive information.

For Immediate Release: The Annual Call for Legislative Page Applications
Every year the legislature is supported by a group of bright and energetic college students. The students are selected to serve as legislative pages. Pages are often interested in or curiosity about state government. Some have gone on to become state senators, while many others have continued to work in the public sector after they graduate from college.
Pages perform valuable services for the legislature, such as helping with preparations for public hearings, assisting senators during committee meetings, and monitoring procedural issues and controlling microphones in the Chamber during floor debate. I was delighted to meet and work with the pages for the first time this year. They clearly have a great opportunity to learn about our legislative process and receive a real insider’s perspective on how the Nebraska Legislature conducts its business. While performing their important duties, I observed that the pages still have a lot of fun and talk about the friendships they develop.
The deadline for submitting page applications and letters of recommendation for the 2013 legislative session is Friday, September 28th at 5:00 pm. The Page Selection Committee will meet in mid-October to choose individuals to fill the vacant positions. Pages work four-hour shifts and must be able to work 20 hours a week during the session. The 2013, 90-day session will begin on January 7h and continue through early June. The hourly wage for first-year pages will be approximately $9.50 per hour, and returnees will be paid $9.85 per hour. In many instances pages may be eligible to receive college credits for their legislative service.
The Selection Committee chose a student page from the second legislative district in four of the past six years. I would be very proud to see another page from our district on the floor of the legislature during the 2013 session.
I am always interested in hearing your comments by mail, phone or email.
