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.

A Lincoln man has completed a nearly 200-mile run in five days from Valentine to Norfolk.  Tom Volk started in Valentine on Monday of last week and finished his 196-mile trek Friday in Norfolk. He says he ran about 12 minutes and 30 seconds for each mile, which included a few walk breaks. He started his journey with Andy Pollock, who also lives in Lincoln. They had hoped to make the run together to call attention to the need to finish the trail west of Valentine. They planned to only stop for water, other liquids and food about every 10 miles. Pollock ran 101 miles before stopping on Wednesday, because of a half-dollar sized blister on his left foot.

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.

With customers in every state and the loyalty of top chefs in Omaha, St. Louis, and Chicago, George Paul Vinegars offers a product ripe with old-world methodology and modern entrepreneurial spirit. With the help of a $40,000 USDA Value-Added Producer Grant, the Johnsons conducted a feasibility...

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.

Recent warm, dry weather helped South Dakota crops mature, but the corn harvest is a bit behind normal.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service says 19 percent of the corn is out of the field, which is below the 45 percent average for this time of year. The agency's weekly crop report says 88 percent of soybeans have been harvested, which is ahead of average and also ahead of where the crop was last year. The fourth cutting of alfalfa was 70 percent done as of Sunday.

A climatologist with the National Drought Mitigation Center says some corn fields in the Dakotas might not be harvested until spring.  Brian Fuchs says the cool, wet growing season has created concerns about the moisture content of the corn. He says some farmers might leave corn standing in the field through the winter so it dries properly. A similar situation occurred in the winter of 2008-2009. The corn harvest in both Dakotas is well behind average. The federal Agriculture Department says only about 12 percent of the South Dakota crop and only about 2 percent of the North Dakota crop is in the bin. Farmers in the two states are projected to produce more than 1 billion bushels of corn this...

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...
