     LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)  Nebraska’s corrections director is reviewing a plan that would concentrate more mental health services at a state prison in Lincoln. Director Scott Frakes says having mental health services scattered throughout the state isn’t an effective use of resources. The plan would increase the number of residential mental health beds at the Lincoln Correctional Center, while reducing beds at the state prison in Tecumseh.
