Kathy Scott Retirement

Kathy Scott has been an incredible agent for our office for the last five and a half years. It is bittersweet for all of us in the office to hear that she has announced her retirement that is slated for December 23rd. We will miss having her here in the office, but wish her all of the best in retirement. It sounds like she has a lot of projects for her and Dale to work on. Congratulations Kathy and Thank You so much for all of the hard work that you have put in here at Insurance of the Heartland.

Driving Around Deer

For many of us in rural Nebraska it is a daily occurrence to find one (or many) deer on our commute to work.

Deer populations have exploded all over the country in recent years and that has caused a rise in the amount of deer related auto accidents.

Here are a few tips to be safe while driving through our deer populated area.

  • Slow Down – This is basic. If you’re speeding, you have less time to adjust when a deer hits the road.
  • Watch for Signs – While deer crossing signs aren’t everywhere, they are in places where accidents have happened before. Trust them.
  • From Dusk ’til Dawn – These are times when our eyes are at their weakest and deer are at their most active. Be especially careful.
  • Don’t Swerve – You’re more likely to damage your vehicle and yourself if you swerve to avoid the deer. Keep the car under control and stay on the road if possible.
