Joe Ricketts sells bread for Nebraska retreat center

GRETNA (AP) — The billionaire founder of TD Ameritrade is selling bread to help cover operating costs at the multimillion-dollar religious retreat center he’s building in eastern Nebraska.

Joe Ricketts’ facility, The Cloisters on the Platte, welcomes donations, but attendees won’t be charged for the retreat. Ricketts hopes bread sales will supplement donations to pay the bills for the Ignatian center along the Platte River.

“If we charged a fee, there would be some people who would not be able to come,” said Ricketts, who is also the Nebraska governor’s father.

“And those are the people we don’t want to have to stay away because of cost.”

Ricketts wouldn’t disclose how much the center near Gretna has cost so far. The project’s price tag is near $20 million, according to building permits. Ricketts bought the land for an additional $13.6 million in 2014.

The bread was stocked at local stores starting about a month ago. The bread is made by Rot

ella’s Italian Bakery in La Vista. One loaf costs $2, and 20 cents goes toward the retreat center.

Ricketts declined to say how much money the bread has made.

But he hopes product sales will help build up a reserve for the religious center in the event of an “adverse financial situation.”

The bread is just the beginning, Ricketts said.

“We’ve got 10 to 15 (products) in the works at the current time,” he said.

The center is geared toward Catholics but open to all faiths. The facility will host its first retreat in mid-July.

Construction is on schedule to meet that deadline, according to Ricketts.

He anticipates that the center will need a waiting list.

More than 7,000 people have indicated interest in the retreat, but the center can only hold fewer than 4,000.

Nebraska state senator's email response stirs up social media firestorm

State Sen. Mike Groene of North Platte, known for his candor, opened up a firestorm of social media commentary Thursday and Friday when he replied to a Lincoln woman’s email with what he defined as sarcasm.

“I’m just pulling their chain,” he said Friday.

Tina Koeppe, who runs a historic services business and formerly worked for the Nebraska State Historical Society, shared that reply on Facebook, and the response from her friends resounded.

“What the heck did you say Tina?” one friend asked.

She titled her 5:04 p.m. Thursday email to Groene, “Embarrassing!”

Then she went on to say:

“Are you seriously wasting taxpayer money with your bill regarding licensed animal massage? How much time was spent discussing this bill?

“And now you claim that there is no need for psychologists in schools?

“What is wrong with you?

“Do you live in the real world?

“You are making a mockery of our state with your ignorant foolishness.

“It is time for you to step down. I hope you have enjoyed your time as a politician.”

Senators did spend a few hours on Groene’s horse massage bill (LB596) that will require anyone who does horse massage for compensation to show evidence of a degree or certificate, recommendations from veterinarians and to pay a fee. Now, they must have a human massage therapy license.

Groene also opposed a bill (LB998) that would put a social worker in every Educational Service Unit across the state. He understands people need mental health treatment, he said, but he doesn’t want education dollars to be spent on mental health treatment. “We don’t have enough education dollars.”

Groene, who is known for his unvarnished responses to emails, including those from students, responded to Koeppe by asking her if she had considered asking for help for her “anger and paranoia issues.” He went on:

“There are three ladies in Lincoln County that will be opening separate equine massage clinics now that we have removed regulatory barriers. I am considering having her contact you. For you see, equine includes zebras, horses, mules, donkeys and ‘asses.’ Since you fit one of those categories those ladies will now legally be able to help you with your hateful stress.”

Koeppe posted Groene’s reply on Facebook, saying: “That feeling when you email an elected Nebraska official with your thoughts on two different recent issues and they respond by calling you an ass. #senatormikegroene #wow”

Her friends responded with name-calling and expressed shock at what they called his disrespect of constituents.

One woman said someone she knew sent him a link to an article on “How to Respond to Angry or Emotional Emails, Professionally,” from

In another response to Koeppe, Groene told her he was a public figure and his answers are honest and up front, a rarity in politics and public education. He told her his constituents applaud his bluntness.

Groene told the Journal Star Koeppe is an internet troll, has done this to a couple of other senators, and her email was meant to bait him. She attacked him on issues and was “really rude,” he said.

“I told her she needed to go find some help for her anger issues,” he said.

He explained animal massage for zebras, horses, mules, donkeys and asses, he said, and that one of those ladies might be able to help her.

“But then she assumed I was talking about asses. No, I just thought maybe she owned a horse. And she took it rudely,” Groene said.

By 4 p.m. Friday Koeppe’s Facebook post had been shared 171 times.
