Lincoln police hope the public can help fined Harry Franklin Bartlett, last seen around two o’clock Thursday afternoon.
Police say Bartlett suffers from a mental disability, vascular dementia, and other medical problems. Police believe he might be headed for St. Louis, Missouri.
Police describe Bartlett as a white male, 5’5″, weighing 160 pounds. He was wearing a black coat, dark hat, blue pants, and brown shoes. He was driving a tan 1995 Buick Century 4 door, NE license SML-801, with a broken left tail light and rust on fenders.
If you have information, call the Lincoln Police Department at 402-441-6000.
The Sidney Police Department requested the advisory after attempting to locate one-year-old Franklin Blakely and two-year-old Stanley Skidmore.
Police believed the two might have been in danger.
The two were accompanied by 45-year-old Donald Winslow and 24-year-old Cherokee Blakely.
He’s in middle school, editor of the school paper.
He had never covered a campaign rally.
So, why not start at the top?
Thirteen-year-old Jack Burchess, Editor and Chief of the Grand Island Westridge Journal, decided to take his shot. When he heard President Donald Trump would campaign near Nebraska, he acted. He went to President Trump’s political website, saw the media access link, and applied for credentials to cover Trump’s visit to Council Bluffs, Iowa.
“Thinking that there was no way that I would be granted access,” Burchess tells Radio Iowa. “I got an email Sunday afternoon, approving my credentials. I was absolutely ecstatic and mainly shocked.”
Burchess, an eighth grader, became one of the hundreds of journalists covering the Trump visit. He says the tight security and the restrictions of movement at the event held at the Mid-America Center surprised him.
So, is Burchess a budding journalist?
“Actually, I want to get into politics,” he says. “I want to be a politician; first a senator and it will snowball from there.”

The Omaha Public Library has come up with a creative way to get books back without patrons having to pay their entire overdue fine. Spokesperson Emily Getzschman says instead of paying all the fine, library users can donate non-perishable food items to reduce that amount.
Getzschman says, “They can bring them to any of our library desks. $2 for each item will be forgiven for overdue fines and that is up to ten items for a total of $20.
All 12 library branches are participating in the “Food for Fines” campaign. Donations will benefit Together, Heartland Ministry Center and Food Bank for the Heartland who helps stock the shelves at food pantries across the state.
This is the second year for the campaign and Getzschman says last year, “We had over 2,000 people donate over 5,500 pounds of food which provided over 4,500 meals. We took off over $8,300 in fines.”
The program runs from October 14th through the 21st.
Nebraskans took off this morning on the latest “Flight of Honor” for military veterans to visit the nation’s capital.
This time, the flight featured female Nebraska veterans.
Approximately 135 female Nebraska veterans boarded a plane at Eppley Airfield in Omaha before dawn to fly to Washington, D.C.
Perhaps the best-known fictional female soldier accompanied them.
Loretta Swit, who played nurse Maj. Margaret “Hot Lips”
Houlihan in the 1970s series “M*A*S*H,” is on the trip. Swit spoke to the veterans Sunday afternoon at a pre-flight dinner at the Embassy Suites LaVista.
This honor flight will visit the Marine Corps War Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, as well as the Tomb of the Unknowns. A group photo is scheduled for the Women in the Military Service for America monument.
