Two names have been sent to Gov. Dave Heineman for his consideration in filling the vacant judgeship in the 9th Judicial District.
The Judicial Nominating Commission has nominated John Rademacher and Thomas Stewart, both of Kearney, for the position.
The vacancy in the 9th Judicial District Court, which serves Buffalo and Hall counties, was created by the retirement of Judge Graten Beavers.
Heineman will schedule interviews with nominees in the coming weeks.
