Extension centers are located in
North Platte, Scottsbluff, Clay
Center, Concord and Lincoln.
“We need to make sure that we
use this as an educational opportuni
ty,” Moeller said.
Hergert said that since discover
ing the embezzlement, the center has
worked to instate additional “checks
and balances” on internal account
But the center didn’t use irrespon
sible control procedures at the time of
the theft, he said.
“The procedures we had in place
were fairly adequate and generally
would stop that kind of thing,”
A mistake was made, perhaps
because of major administrative
changes at the center in the past year.
For instance, the center’s director left
in August, when Heigert assumed the
interim director position.
“It’s unfortunate that this hap
pened,” he said. “Like with all bad sit
uations, I think that we’ve had some
learning out of this, and I think it will
provide more secure financial proce
dures within the university.”
But the center’s biggest lesson
learned may have been the simplest,
“You can’t always trust people.”

“That would probably take

Final cleanup in the interior

From Staff Reports
Gov. Ben Nelson’s “eyeball to
eyeball” meetings and “tough talk”
with South Korean officials earlier
this month worked.
Nelson learned Monday that the
200 tons of Nebraska and U.S. beef
that had been sitting in a South
Korean port for nearly three months ’
would again be allowed in the coun
Thanks largely, State Agriculture
Director Larry Sitzman said, to
Nelson’s persistence and admitted
“tough talk” during a trade mission
to the country earlier this month.
bouth Korea s beer safety con
cerns surfaced in September after j
traces of E. coli were found on frozen
beef patties shipped there from
Dakota City’s IBP, the largest meat
packing plant in the nation.
In October, South Korean offi- |
cials suspended imports of Nebraska
beef from the plant and ordered a
local importer to destroy or return
nearly 18 tons of the beef that had
been sitting in a warehouse.
Nelson called the South Korean
change of heart encouraging.
