LINCOLN – Two siblings from the Scottsbluff area spent much of their youth in the Nebraska foster care system, but had different lives.
Sarah Peters, 22, left the foster care system at 16 when a couple became her guardian. She lost their support at 19 because they adopted a baby, and she was no longer eligible for state  medical assistance. She had to drop out of pre-med school because of a $10,000 hospital bill.

Among the bills discussed was LB50, introduced by Sen. Brad Ashford of Omaha. The bill would hold gun owners civilly liable for damages resulting from the unreasonable placement of a firearm where a minor or mentally handicapped individual could get it.
