Officials from Logan View and North Bend Central school districts shorted nearly $900,000 combined over 2011 and 2012
It appears that a computer glitch led to approximately $2.3 million in tax dispersal errors from Dodge County in the 2011 and 2012 tax years.
Officials from Logan View and North Bend Central school districts wrote to the county last month, claiming they were shorted nearly $900,000 combined over 2011 and 2012. Treasurer Cathy Dill said investigation by Terra Scan experts since then revealed the problem to actually 44 entities that receive tax dispersals from the county.

Hooper man to receive Medal of Honor posthumously
It was an intense battle, but Donald Schwab proved fiercer than the fight.
In September 1944, according to the Air Force Times, the first lieutenant led his men over 400 yards of bare ground in Lure, France, in the face of gunfire.
After three charges and with his group dwindling, Schwab charged the enemy alone, ripped off a German pistol nest cover and hit the gunner with his carbine. Schwab then dragged the gunner behind Allied lines amid a hail of gunfire.
His action so disorganized the enemy’s troops that they abandoned their defenses and withdrew. The Hooper man’s feat earned him a Distinguished Service Cross for “extraordinary heroism.”
Schwab didn’t talk much about his military service and, for years, people on his rural mail route couldn’t have known they had a hero in their midst.
A main road through Hooper could soon be named after a local soldier who posthumously received the nation’s highest honor.
President Barak Obama on March 18 awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor to Donald K. Schwab for Schwab’s heroic actions in France on Sept. 17, 1944.
Schwab’s widow, Maralee Schwab, watched via live streaming from her home at Hooper Care Center as her oldest son, Terry Schwab, accepted the medal at The White House on behalf of his father.
The Dodge County Supervisors, meeting at 9 a.m. Wednesday on the third floor of the courthouse, will consider a request by Hooper American Legion Post 18 to designate Old Highway 275, running from U.S. Highway 77 through Hooper, as Donald K. Schwab Memorial Highway.
