The operator of a northeast Nebraska grain elevator closed by the state say the elevator's farmer customers need not worry: All their grain is there.

The Nebraska Public Service Commission had ordered Pender Grain Elevator, Inc., to close after hearing evidence from PSC staffers during an emergency meeting Thursday morning.

John Fecht is director of the PSC grain warehouses division.

He told the Lincoln Journal Star that an Aug. 31 inspection found that
the elevator owners, Scott and Katie Darling, had no daily records
since Jan. 31.

On Friday, Katie Darling told The Associated Press that her
computer had been incorrect on its bushel count since the computer
system was installed.

Darling says all their customers' grain is there.
