Chief Justice visits Grant
Nebraska Supreme Court Chief Justice Mike Heavican toured the Perkins County Courthouse on Wednesday, Aug. 2 as part of his 2017 summer tour. Court Justices Bill Cassel and Stephanie Stacy accompanied him and court staff on the tour, which consisted of several southwestern counties.
The entourage was greeted by Perkins County Court Clerk Magistrate Kathy Woodmancy, County Attorney Rick Roberts, County Commissioners Steve Tucker, Bernie Deaver and Sid Colson, as well as members of the Perkins County Schools mock trial team and other visitors.
With camera in tow, Heavican snapped photos of the historical courthouse as he received a tour from Roberts and met county officials.
Heavican said the tour gives him the opportunity to receive input from county officials and employees on how to improve the court system.
He noted the improvements made at the courthouse and was impressed with the new windows in the courtroom.
“All the courthouses have represented a great expression of community pride,” he said, commenting on the well-kept lawns, trees and gardens.
Heavican was pleased with the turnout and thanked the county for their support.
