The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is seeking information on a female mountain lion that was illegally shot and left in the Pine Ridge National Forest south of Chadron in Dawes County. An individual hunting in the area reported finding the mountain lion, which was estimated to be about a year and a half old, late last week.

Anyone with information related to this incident is encouraged to call Game and Parks or the Nebraska Wildlife Crime Stoppers at 1-800-742-7627.  Hotline callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible...

The American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make a resolution to give blood regularly in 2015, beginning with National Blood Donor Month in January. National Blood Donor Month recognizes the importance of giving blood and platelets while honoring those who roll up a sleeve to help patients in need. It has been observed during January since 1970, and that’s no coincidence. Winter is an especially difficult time to collect enough blood to meet patient needs. Unpredictable winter weather can result in blood drive cancellations, and seasonal illnesses, like the flu, may cause some donors to be unable to make or keep blood donation appointments. Donors of all blood types are needed, especially...

Officer Mcbride was also transported by ambulance and was treated and released at the Cherry County Hospital. The cruiser was considered a total loss.

Feeder cattle movement slowed this past week after the stampede of sales that took place last week, following the Thanksgiving holiday.  Sharply lower CME cattle futures pressured demand, especially on yearlings and big calves headed right into the feedlot.  Sharply lower CME cattle futures caused feedlots to pull orders with Feeder contracts down the limit three days during the week.  It is now evident that the fed cattle market is no longer going to hold record levels (with this week’s cash prices fully 10.00 off the record level established a month ago) and is more concerned with finding bottom-side support.  Grain prices also sustained a slight unexpected rally, even though this week’s...

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced that greater protection is now available from the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program for crops that traditionally have been ineligible for federal crop insurance. The new options, created by the 2014 Farm Bill, provide greater coverage for losses when natural disasters affect specialty crops such as vegetables, fruits, mushrooms, floriculture, ornamental nursery, aquaculture, turf grass, ginseng, honey, syrup, and energy crops. “These new protections will help ensure that farm families growing crops for food, fiber or livestock consumption will be better able to withstand losses due to natural disasters,” said Vilsack. “For years,...

Aside from increased demand for corn to make food sweeteners and a boost in soybean exports, few adjustments are found in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's latest crop update. The U.S. Department of Agriculture did not change in Wednesday's report the number of corn acres planted this year, as some analysts expect it may. The agency will likely wait until January to make adjustments, because there is still corn in some Michigan and Wisconsin fields. Currently, the number of acres reported in federal program applications exceeds USDA estimates by about 5 million acres, a larger discrepancy than usual. Farmers in 22 states including Iowa and Nebraska expect record corn yields this year as...

The U.S. Department of Agriculture anticipates South Dakota's dry edible bean production in 2014 will be down 16 percent from last year. The department said on Wednesday that it anticipates 2014's statewide yield will be 1,500 pounds per acre, which is a drop of 500 pounds per acre from 2013. That's despite a 1,400-acre uptick in harvested area from 2013. The National Agricultural Statistics Service anticipates the total crop will be 194,000 hundredweight in 2014.

Cort Scheer entered the 2014 National Finals Rodeo with hopes of a world championship. Instead, he pocketed more than $93,000 over the 10 days of ProRodeo’s grand championship event and left Las Vegas with a big piece of disappointment. How can that be? He needed $10,000 more. Instead, he finished the season No. 2 in the world standings with $195,586, $9,800 behind world champion Spencer Wright of Milford, Utah. It was a fantastic finish for the gold buckle, and it came down to the final round to decide the champion. Scheer, 28, of Elsmere, Neb., placed in five go-rounds, including a first-round victory. He also finished second in the average behind Wright – they were the only...

Benny Parker's floater in the lane with 1:14 remaining in the second overtime lifted Nebraska to its first-ever win over Cincinnati, 56-55, in front of more than 15,000 fans inside Pinnacle Bank Arena Saturday night. Cincinnati scored the first three points of double overtime on a Kevin Johnson 3-pointer 1:18 into the period. But that would be the Bearcats' only points of the second overtime. A pair of Tai Webster free throws pulled Nebraska to within one before Parker's game-winner. The Bearcats had a final chance to win it in the closing seconds, but Johnson missed a 3-pointer and Shavon Shields corralled the rebound as time expired. The Huskers overcame a three-point deficit in both overtime...

The 14th-seeded Nebraska volleyball team's run through the NCAA Tournament came to an end late Saturday night in Alaska Airlines Arena, as the Huskers fell to upset-minded BYU 3-0 (21-25, 20-25, 21-25) in the Seattle Regional Final. The Huskers finished the season 23-10 and came up one match shy of the NCAA Semifinals for the third straight season. Nebraska has been in four regional finals since its last NCAA Semifinals appearance in 2008 but has been unable to advance each time. After upsetting No. 3 Washington on Friday to snap the Huskies' 34-match home win streak, the Huskers couldn't muster the same performance on Saturday to top the Cougars. BYU (29-4) entered the NCAA Tournament ranked...

They’re my brothers and it makes me happy that they were going crazy for me,” Wright...
