Photo by Shaunte the appeals process is whats not making it a deterrent Dobbs said. They can have almost 20 years of appeals. Why it be brought Down to the Point where you can Only have one Appeal and it has to be completed in ten years then you re Gonna have a deterrent with the death penalty. Ebke stated that although the Appeal process can extend someones life for More than 20 years it is still a necessary part of the process. She explained that if the appeals process were limited there would be More executions but there is still doubt about whether it would deter crime. Theress a part of me that just has a hard time believing that people who Are willing to engage in truly heinous crimes Are will ing to reason said Ebke. If they were reasonable people they think through if i kill this person i will get the death pen Alty or wont get the death penalty. I dont think they think about it As much. The senator told the group about the amount of time that she has spent listening to testimonies on the Judi Ciary committee concern ing the repeal of the death penalty. She explained that there was Only one testimony was in favor of keeping the penalty in place. The others which included testimonies from the families of murder victims were in favor of repeal. Although she maintains her belief that the death penalty is not effective acquire or buy that electric Utility from the investors because there was a feeling among some of the citizens that the service was t Good. Rates were High and they did t have a Chance to have a say in what those rates were going to be. The citizens Naiman explained came together and procured this util Ity. Although the Utility was owned by the people in 1910, the first electric Generator was Only used for commercial lighting such As Street lamps and stores. Naiman stated that As the population increased new generators were installed in order to accommodate the growth. Today the Power Plant employs seven people however Only some of these employees hold permanent positions at the facility Naiman explained. He said that the other workers Are either on rotation or serve in maintenance positions. The generators at the Plant do not operate 24 hours a Day seven Days a week. Instead As Naiman commented they Only run As needed. He has seen Many changes from the time he began working in the Field. I started to work for the Utility in 1979, said Naiman. At that time the generators were running yet and i was a boiler fire Man there. I be seen a lot of changes. I be seen the time when the generators were running until we became a full participant of the municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska mean Naiman explained that they lease the Energy that is produced by their Genera tors. In order to be Able to participate in this program they Are required to pass a test called the urge test. During this test the Plant is required to run at Peak performance for a certain number of hours to ensure that every aspect runs smoothly. We lease that Plant to them mean Naiman said. If they need it or if we need it it s there. We can run it. The generators for sure run once a year Dur ing the urge test and in order for us to receive that lease payment we have to prove to them that we can generate according to that lease capacity that we sell Back to them. In order to run the Plant according to regulations diesel and natural Gas Are used to run the boiler. Naiman explained that the process does t take a Long time to generate Energy from these fuels and from water that comes from the River. The fuel is used to make those boilers hot said Naiman. Those boilers then make steam that makes the wheel on the Generator turn. The amount of fuel that is consumed during this process depends upon How Long it takes to warm the boiler Naiman explained. According to his records last year the Plant used 2,092 a Btu. He provided some data which indicated that during the most recent urge test the Plant produced 102,310 kilowatts. When the Plant generates Power to be leased it is reimbursed. When we generate we re paid by our Power sup plier for the Gas plus $5 a megawatt for operation and maintenance said Naiman. So we re compensated to run. We get the Gas Back and the lease is there. The Energy that is produced is not used Only in Fairbury but in other communities As Well Naiman explained. Naiman believes that having the Power Plant located in Fairbury provides a great advantage for the Community that other communities that do not have a Power Plant May not have. It goes elsewhere Naiman said. When we re generating we re Actu ally lighting Light bulbs in Homes All Over and in the surrounding area too. I think the biggest advantage is first of All its an asset that the Community owns you re compensated for hav ing it available for your use if you have to. If peril comes and we can generate Naiman continued it s an asset that s there. Plus you re getting paid to just have it sit there to be ready for you.

Power Plant time tested system still serving Public continued from Page 1 Ebke senator talks about variety of topics continued from Page 1 Ebke stated that she is glad that the people collecting signatures to put the Issue on the ballot Are becoming More Active in the political system. I have been pretty supportive of those who have been out collecting petitions Ebke said. I think thatus the Way the system is supposed to be. If the Public feels strongly enough about it to go out and collect the signatures great. They can decide. The question is if we maintain the status quo we have a death penalty then what some of the other issues that were discussed at the event included property assessments the changes in healthcare As a result of the affordable care act and a Brief overview of or 35, which serves As an application to have a convention of states in order to discuss amending the Constitution to introduce term limits in Congress and to limit the Power of the Federal govern ment.
