Article Image Alt Text

Members of the congregation at Martin Luther Lutheran Church participated in a Meal of Remembrance on Good Friday, April 19. This meal had a somber and reflective atmosphere where participants meditated on scriptures relating to various foods symbolizing Jesus Christ’s death on the cross, his resurrection on Easter Sunday, and the spiritual impact within people’s lives today.

According to Rev. Ken Tubbesing, pastor of the Martin Luther Lutheran Church, this meal is also known as the “Service of Tenebrae” or “Service of the Darkness.” The table is set in a u-shape symbolizing the meal of the Last Supper that Jesus had in the Upper Room with his disciples. Candles are used to create a somber, reflective atmosphere and a candle is extinguished after each of the foods are eaten by the participants.

Staff Member Assaulted at TSCI Mon. Afternoon

April 8, 2019 (Lincoln, Neb) – An inmate at the Tecumseh State Correctional Institution (TSCI) assaulted a staff member on Monday, April 8, 2019.

Around 1:40 p.m. the inmate exited his cell when his door was opened by mistake. The inmate hit the staff member in the head and torso with his fists. That staff member was able to help subdue the inmate, along with several other officers who came to assist. One staff member deployed two short bursts of oleoresin capsicum (pepper spray) to bring the inmate under control. A homemade weapon was recovered at the scene, but was not used in the assault.

As a result of this incident and another that occurred on March 21, the Special Management Unit (SMU) at TSCI, has been placed on modified operations*. The SMU holds individuals who are assigned to restrictive housing. The remainder of the facility is operating normally.
