Nebraska county seeks solutions for panhandlers in Whiteclay
LINCOLN, Neb. | Officials in a northwest Nebraska county are looking at ways to address aggressive panhandling and other alcohol-related problems in a village known for selling beer on the border of a dry South Dakota Indian reservation.
The Sheridan County Board of Commissioners met with Whiteclay residents and business owners on Monday and will convene again on Nov. 9. The tiny village sells the equivalent of millions of cans of beer each year, mostly to residents of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
