It is anticipated that Fisher will submit his letter of resignation to the school board this evening for the school board will gather for the February monthly meeting at 7pm. KRGI News Director Ryan Baker caught up with Fisher this afternoon to talk about his decision. Listen to the interview below.

 

--- Matt Fisher email to the district

After much prayerful consideration and soul searching over the past couple of months I have decided to submit my resignation as superintendent for the Northwest school district. 

 I became eligible for retirement prior to the start of this school year.  I wanted to see the bond election through this past fall so I elected to stay on through this school year.  Once the election was over I had intended to announce that I would be retiring.  However, I have found that walking away from the great people that I have had the privilege to serve over the past seven years has been a very difficult decision. 

 After being back and forth multiple times, I have returned to what I came into this year believing was the best decision for myself and my family.  I have truly cherished my time here in the Northwest school district.  It will always be a great source of pride for me to be able to say that I got to be a part of this truly amazing district.  Thank you to everyone who makes Northwest the special place that it is!

KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) — Authorities are trying to find the mother who left her newborn male twins after their birth at a central Nebraska hospital.

Kearney police officers were sent to CHI Good Samaritan hospital Monday afternoon and learned the mother had provided false information to the hospital when she was admitted. The babies were born Saturday.

The twins have been placed in state custody. Police investigators are working with the hospital and state Health and Human Services Department officials on identifying the boys' mother.

It's not clear whether the mother left her boys at the hospital under provisions of the state's safe haven law. Nebraska lawmakers approved the law in 2008 to protect newborns from abandonment.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Backers of an effort to legalize medical marijuana in Nebraska have filed formal paperwork for a statewide ballot campaign.

Nebraskans for Sensible Marijuana Laws submitted their proposed constitutional amendment Tuesday to the Nebraska Secretary of State's office.

State Sens. Anna Wishart and Adam Morfeld, of Lincoln, are co-chairing the effort to place the issue on the 2020 ballot.

Wishart has introduced a bill that would allow lawmakers to legalize the drug for medicinal purposes, but it faces stiff opposition from state and local law enforcement, Gov. Pete Ricketts and prominent Nebraskans including former Husker football coach Tom Osborne.

Legalization supporters have said they will pursue the ballot campaign if lawmakers don't pass a measure this year.

CHAPPELL, Neb. (AP) — A murder charge has been filed against a woman accused of stabbing a man outside a mobile home in the Nebraska Panhandle.

Deuel County District Court records say 49-year-old Susan Glenn was charged Friday with first-degree murder and a weapons crime. A woman who answered the phone Tuesday at her attorney's office said there would be no comment from the attorney. Glenn's next court hearing is scheduled for Feb. 21.

Glenn had been charged with assault and use of a weapon.

The court records say a witness who'd been standing outside the home talking to Robert Mick on Jan. 13 in Chappell was on the phone with 911 dispatchers when Glenn came out of the residence, stabbed Mick and fled in her car. He died four days later.

The records say she's acknowledged to investigators that she stabbed Mick.
