Governor Dave Heineman has selected University of Nebraska Regent and former Elk Creek Senator LaVon Heidemann to be his Lt. Governor. Heidemann took the oath of office yesterday at the Capitol. He replaces former Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy, who resigned earlier this month following news that he had made thousands of calls to women, other than his wife, on his state-issued cellphone. Heidemann is a farmer and livestock producer. He also is a volunteer firefighter.
