LINCOLN — Newly named Lt. Gov. Lavon Heidemann was praised Wednesday as someone who might help the governor mend fences with state lawmakers.
Heidemann, a 54-year-old farmer and member of the University of Nebraska Board of Regents, was Gov. Dave Heineman's surprise pick to replace Rick Sheehy, who resigned 12 days ago.
