GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) – More than $52,000 in unclaimed property was returned to Nebraskans who visited the state treasurer’s booth at the Nebraska State Fair this year in Grand Island.
 
State treasurer Don Stenberg says 133 claims totaling $52,279 were filed by visitors to the booth during the 10-day fair. One claim for $15,761 was paid to a McCook resident. Other claims ranged in size from $7.59 to $960, which was paid to an Ashland woman.
 
Stenberg says this year’s amount was three times the amounts of claims paid during last year’s state fair.
 
More than $7 million has been paid so far in 2013 to 11,730 owners, averaging almost $600 a claim.
