(Neb.)- Package Outside Senator's Nebraska Office Checked

     LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Experts have checked out and cleared a suspicious bag that was found outside U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer's office in Lincoln.
     A passer-by in the Haymarket district on the west edge of downtown reported the package Wednesday morning. Bomb experts say the bag contained only trash.
     Chief fire inspector Bill Moody says that such reports multiply "after a major incident in the country," referring to the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday.
     Moody has no problem responding to calls about suspicious packages. He says he'd rather his staff check the packages and bags than learn later that they contained harmful objects.
     The FBI says letters sent to President Barack Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker of Washington last week tested positive for a powerful poison.
