A new report says more than 3,000 young adults in Nebraska may qualify for Medicaid coverage under a provision of the federal health care law, but only 3 percent of that group is currently enrolled. The group Nebraska Appleseed released the report Friday in advance of a legislative hearing on coverage for youths who have aged out of foster care. The Affordable Care Act allows youths who were in foster care to receive Medicaid coverage until age 26. It's similar to another provision of the law that lets youths stay on their parents' plans until they turn 26. Senator Sue Crawford of Bellevue is conducting a legislative study to see what can be done to inform young people about the option and...

A central Nebraska school board has decided to let students pose with guns in their senior portraits. The Broken Bow school board took the action at its meeting Monday night. The issue arose last year when a student was denied permission to pose with a gun. Superintendent Mark Sievering says that as district officials talked about the issue, "There was a sense that to allow a student to have a firearm, as long as it was done in a tasteful manner in terms of a hunting or sporting-type picture, that that might be OK." Sievering says students may not be pointing guns at the cameras in their pictures or the photos will not be used in yearbooks or other school publications.

The warm fall weather is likely to blame for aphids that have been reported on winter wheat in central and southern South Dakota. Counties where the bug has been spotted include Hand, Hanson, Davidson and Aurora. SDSU Extension Agronomy Field Specialist Ruth Beck says the aphids carry a virus that is transferred to the wheat and can result in reduced crop yields. She says wheat farmers should look for the bug in their fields and call the agency or treat their crops if the infestation is bad enough. The aphids are dark-green and have a brown band across their abdomen.

Fifteen years ago, George Johnson and his daughter, Emily, began their first foray into winemaking, vinifying local wild grapes and other fruits in their home in rural Cody, Nebraska.

Recent mild weather has helped Nebraska farmers make good progress on harvesting their crops.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture says more soybeans are being harvested now because farmers are waiting for corn to dry out a bit more. But the corn harvest is underway. Roughly 69 percent of the soybeans have been harvested. That's behind last year's 77 percent and the average of 81 percent at this time of year. About 28 percent of Nebraska's corn has been harvested. That's similar to last year but well behind the average of 45 percent harvested at this point in the fall. But the warm weather actually slowed the sugar beet harvest in western Nebraska.

A Pierre taskforce that manages the city's deer population plans to recommend that no deer be killed this year in light of unusually low population numbers in the area. This would be the first year Pierre's Deer Management Task Force recommends against a deer harvest. City Commissioner Jeanne Goodman says on average 24 deer were found on three separate counts last month. Goodman says that's considerably lower than counts in previous years. The number of deer to be harvested, set by the state Game, Fish and Parks Department, has reached as high as 70 in previous years. In the last two years, the department set the harvest number at 20 for the city.

Ameer Abdullah reached a number of milestones in Nebraska's win over Northwestern. He became the first Nebraska player to post three 1,000-yard rushing seasons and the school's No. 2 all-time leading rusher. He also scored a career-high four touchdowns in the 38-17 victory. Abdullah said none of those accomplishments mean anything if the 16th-ranked Cornhuskers don't win the rest of their games. The senior from Homewood, Alabama, says few people will remember his statistics when his college career is over. He says he would like to be remembered for leading the Cornhuskers (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) to their first conference championship since 1999. Nebraska hosts Rutgers (5-2, 1-2) on Saturday at...
