HEAFEY-HEAFEY-HOFFMANN DWORAK-CUTLER WEST CENTER CHAPEL 78th West Center 391-3900 The removal of gambling machines from three Nebraska cities is evidence that illegal gambling remains a problem in bars across the state, a Nebraska State Patrol investigator said Friday. Sgt. Tim Arnold, who works in the patrol's North Platte office, said investigators Wednesday seized five slot machines from the Nebraska Sports Bar Grill in McCook.

The same day, they took another two slot machines from Macke's Sports Bar Grill in Cambridge. And Tuesday, the patrol helped Hall County officials remove two video gaming machines from Grand Island's Fonner Keno Casino Sports Lounge at Fonner Park. Hall County Attorney Mark Young said Friday that the machines from Fonner Keno, with a game called "Bank Shot," are being tested by the Nebraska Charitable Gaming Division and could be legal. "Nobody has a lot of heartburn over this particular machine," he said. The owners of the McCook and Cambridge businesses could not be reached for comment.

Fonner Keno manager Todd Otto said the games removed from his business are legal. Slot machines are illegal in Nebraska. Even so, Arnold said, some bar owners sneak them in because it's an easy way to raise their cash flow. And because the bar owners don't report profits from the machines, the extra income is tax-free, he said. The machines siphon off gambling dollars from legal, charitable games, such as keno.

Once seized, the gambling machines are usually destroyed. Inspectors with the state's Charitable Gaming Division reported 38 suspicious gambling devices 1 in 12 counties between July 2007 and June 2008. "A lot of bars do this," Arnold said. "I guess the reward is worth the risk." The Legislature could vote this year on whether to allow slot machines at Nebraska racetracks. Two proposals are being looked at, though it remains to be seen whether they will reach the floor for debate.

The Legislature's General Affairs Committee held a public hearing on the proposals this week, but members didn't take a vote on whether to advance them. State troopers, along with state fire marshals, went to the Nebraska Sports Bar Grill in McCook to investigate possible fire code violations. Authorities found that the bar's emergency fire exits were padlocked. Then they came across the slot machines. The bar's owner was cited on suspicion of several fire code violations, said State Fire Marshal John Falgione.

He said the bar must remain closed until the owner gets the bar up to code. Bar owners accused of having illegal gambling machines face a 20-day suspension of their liquor licenses or a $1,000 fine if found violation by the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. A second offense could result in loss of their liquor licenses. They also could face misdemeanor criminal charges. The Grand Island Independent contributed to this report.

BY JASON KUIPER WORLD-HERALD STAFFWRITER COUNCIL BLUFFS The wife of a Neola, Iowa, man who died this week after being struck by a train remembered him as "an awesome dad" who liked to dance and see live bands play. Craig C. Lang, 41, died in an accident Wednesday near the entrance to the Union Pacific Railroad yard near 1200 Big Lake Road in Council Bluffs. Lang had been a conductor for Union Pacific for more than four years.

Joe Hothersall, a Bluffs police detective, said Lang was working on the front of a stationary train Wednesday. He was stepping off that train to help switch the track for an oncoming coal train when he suffered a glancing blow from Call today for your Te Guide! its taken care of Both you and your family will have the peace of mind knowing your wishes are being carried out the way you like.

Hothersall said Lang was working in an area that didn't have a lot of clearance between trains, Craig C. Lang and it was still dark after 6 a.m., when he was hit. Police have more interviews to do, and the incident is also being investigated by the Federal Railroad Administration. Results of that probe could take months. Lang is survived by his wife of 19 years, Lisa, and two daughters, Alyssa and Kylie Lang, all of Neola, as well as his parents, Jack and Kathy Lang.

Lisa Lang said her husband loved to bow hunt and ride his allterrain vehicle. He graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in Council Bluffs. "He loved life," she said. "He was a very fun person. Out of all of this it is comforting to know how many people cared about him." Lisa said Craig worked a lot of hours, so spending time with his family was important.

"He spoiled the girls and me rotten," she said. "He was a very unselfish person who always thought of us first. His girls came first. He was just a devoted family man." Lang's funeral will be 2 p.m. Monday at Valley View Baptist Church in Council Bluffs.

Visitation with the family will be from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday at Cutler-O'Neill Funeral Home in the Bluffs. Memorials are suggested to a college fund for Alyssa, 17, and Kylie, 14. Contact the writer: 444-1279, You've just moved.
