NOVEMBER 26, 2018 (LINCOLN, NEB.)  — Nebraska State Troopers removed 16 impaired drivers from the road, issued more than 500 speeding citations, and assisted hundreds of motorists during a special Click It or Ticket enforcement surrounding the Thanksgiving weekend.

The enforcement, which was part of a national effort, including many other law enforcement agencies in Nebraska, was made possible thanks in part to a grant for $20,000 from the Nebraska Department of Transportation - Highway Safety Office.

“A projected record numbers of travelers, along with a winter storm that blanketed much of the state on Sunday, made for an eventful weekend for our troopers,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “I’m incredibly proud of the effort by our troopers and dispatchers this weekend, and thankful that many drivers planned ahead and were able to stay off the roads on Sunday.”

During the enforcement, which ran from Wednesday, November 21 through Sunday, November 25, troopers arrested 15 people for driving under the influence of alcohol and 1 for driving under the influence of drugs. In addition to those arrests, troopers issued citations for speeding (506), driving under suspension (35), no proof of insurance (33), minor in possession (5), open container (7), no seat belt (30), and improper child restraint (4).

Troopers also assisted 267 motorists in need of help, arrested 47 people for possession of drugs, and apprehended 9 fugitives.

The enforcement included vehicle checks, high visibility and saturation patrols, as well as regular enforcement efforts.

LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts announced the agenda for the 31st Governor’s Ag Conference, which brings together ag producers, industry leaders and agri-business managers in Nebraska on an annual basis to talk about the future of agriculture.  The conference is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, March 4-5, 2019, at the Younes Conference Center in Kearney.

“For 31 years, the Governor’s Ag Conference has been a premiere forum for Nebraska farmers, ranchers, and industry leaders to come together to discuss agriculture and how to keep growing our state’s number one industry,” said Governor Ricketts.  “We hope you can join us to talk about the future of agriculture in Nebraska.  It’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss.”

“We’ve asked industry experts at the local, state and federal level to lead discussions at this year’s Governor’s Ag Conference and share their knowledge and experience with producers and agribusiness leaders from around the state,” said Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) Director Steve Wellman.  “Conference speakers and attendees can use this opportunity to connect with colleagues and prepare for the future.”

The conference starts Monday, March 4, 2019, at 3:30 p.m. with a panel presentation featuring Nebraska entrepreneurs and recruiters.  The panel includes representatives from three innovative Nebraska companies and three organizations involved heavily in recruiting companies to Nebraska.

On the entrepreneur side, the panelists are Vishal Singh with Quantified Ag; Lukas Fricke with ChorChek; and Mitch Minarick with FARMAFIELD.  These speakers will discuss their companies, goals, visions and why they chose Nebraska communities to start their businesses. 

The three people representing recruitment success are: Phil Kozera with Bio Nebraska; Dan Duncan with Innovation Campus; and Bryan Slone with the Nebraska State Chamber.  They will discuss their efforts in recruiting and how to find and attract startups as well as how to connect to established industries. 

Governor Ricketts will moderate this panel presentation that will include questions and answers from the audience.

The annual “Celebrate Nebraska Agriculture” reception, at 6 p.m. on March 4th will feature an assortment of food and beverages from Nebraska.

The conference resumes on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, at 9 a.m. with a presentation from Jim Smith, executive director of Blueprint Nebraska, an organization that is spearheading a statewide, citizen-led economic development initiative.

Governor Ricketts, NDA Director Wellman and Nebraska Department of Economic Development Director Dave Rippe will update conference participants on legislative initiatives in agriculture and highlight the work being done between state agencies to grow Nebraska.  This panel presentation will be moderated by NDA Assistant Director Amelia Breinig.

Next on the agenda will be Jim Wiesemeyer, with Pro Farmer, giving participants an update on the national farm bill and how it will impact farmers and ranchers nationwide as well as here in Nebraska.   

The Governor's Ag Conference is coordinated by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture and is co-sponsored by Farm Credit Services of America.  A $125 registration fee covers participation at activities on both Monday and Tuesday.  Registration and additional information is available online at www.nda.nebraska.gov, or by calling NDA toll-free at (800) 831-0550.

On March 5, 2019 Deputies were sent to mile marker 197 (just east of Brady, NE.) on U.S. Highway 30. It was reported two vehicles had struck each other and there were injuries to both drivers. Deputies arrived and met with the drivers of the vehicles.

The investigation showed a black GMC Denali was eastbound on Highway 30 in its proper lane. A white Mitsubishi Mirage was westbound on Highway 30 and crossed the center line and struck the GMC Denali. The driver of the GMC was injured but refused medical treatment.

The driver of the Mitsubishi suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Great Plains Health. He was identified as thirty-one year old Joshua Baker of North Platte. Deputies believed Mr. Baker was under the influence of narcotics at the time of the accident. Deputies found suspected THC Wax in the vehicle and other items.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Kansas City Community College, the fifth-ranked woman’s team in NJCCA Division 2, rolled to a 98-72 win over McCook Saturday.

The Lady Indians stayed with the Blue Devils early on and trailed by a point after the first period 21-20, but the Kansas City defense clamped down during the second quarter, to fuel a 28-10 advantage on the way to a 49-30 halftime lead.

“They really guarded us very well today and because of that defense we were out of sorts,” McCook Community College Coach Kellen Fernetti said. “We turned the ball over more than normal and it forced us into some tough plays.”

MCC turned the ball over 24 times.

The Lady Indians came back in the third period to compete on nearly-even terms, 27-26, but were not able to overcome the second-quarter defensive stand by the Blue Devils.

“They limited our threes and made us shoot tough twos,” Fernetti said.

The Lady Indians shot 43.1 percent from the field, but just four of 18 (22 percent) from the 3-point line and 64.3 percent from the line on 28 free throws. MCC had 42 rebounds and 15 assists.

Kansas City CC shot 46.3 percent from the field, 25.7 percent on 35 3-pointers, and 59.1 percent from the line. The Blue Devils had 44 rebounds and 17 assists.

Sophomore Hailey Tiles (Rogers, Ark.) led MCC in scoring with 15 points. Sophomore Sam Hinkle, (Rifle Colo.) had 12 points.

Freshmen Makenna Bodette (Colorado Springs) and Lena Goerke (Hamburg, Germany) both scored 10 points. Freshman Nikki Cross (Melbourne, Australia) led MCC with seven rebounds to go along with seven points and four assists.

“This will be a good learning experience moving forward as we prepare for a tough Region IX schedule next week,” Fernetti said. “We just have to keep our heads held high and still believe in what we are doing.

The Blue Devils improve to 16-2 on the season.

MCC closes out the “pre-conference” portion of the schedule at 11-5 with only Region IX or Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference games remaining on the schedule.

Region IX South Division play begins Friday as the Lady Indians hit the road for four straight Region IX games starting at Otero Junior College and Trinidad State on back-to-back nights, then at Western Nebraska Jan.22 and at Northeastern Junior College Jan. 25. MCC closes out the January schedule Jan. 29 against North Platte then plays six home games in February with the final home game Feb. 23 against Lamar Community College.

The McCook Softball Team will participate at the Holdrege Tournament starting August 25th. McCook will take on Minden in the first game at 10:30am.  This is a double elimination format.  View the bracket on the link below.

A man who spent nine years at McCook Community College as an assistant coach with the men’s basketball team, will take over the head coaching post for the MCC women’s basketball program.

Brandon Pritchett has been named MCC’s Women’s Basketball Coach. He had been serving the college as the interim coach since late February after the resignation of former coach Kellen Fernetti. Pritchett took over a team that topped the 20-win mark for the third time in four years.

“We are extremely excited for Coach Pritchett to take over the women’s basketball program here at McCook,” said MCC Athletic Director Jon Olsen. “Brandon has done an excellent job in his nine years at the college in every role he has had, he is a great worker and someone that I can count on to get things done and is always there to help for the betterment of the college and our student athletes.”

This season, the Lady Indians finished 21-11 and claimed a Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference championship with a perfect 6-0 mark. The team finished in third place in the South Sub-Region and hosted a first round Region tournament game for the first time since going to the current play-in game format. The season ended with a one-point loss to Eastern Wyoming in the second round of the Region IX Tournament.

Since arriving at MCC in August of 2010, Pritchett began his assistant coaching duties with the men’s program under Brandon Lenhart which has included a wide range of responsibilities including recruiting and summer camp responsibilities.

Pritchett served two years as Resident Life Assistant, Intramural Director, and basketball camp instructor. In March of 2012, he was named Area Assistant Director of Advising where his duties have included advising for MCC’s 450 on-campus, commuter and on line students as well as student recruitment for the 18 counties in the Mid-Plains Community College District.

In December of 2012 he launched the first McCook Community College Athletic website.

“Brandon has been a huge part of our athletic program during his time here, and now I am excited for him to take on his new role,” Olsen said.

Prior to coming to MCC he spent six seasons at Flagstaff High School. He graduated Cum Laude at Northern Arizona University in 2005 and received his master’s degree in Sports Science and Management at the United States Sports Academy in Daphne, Ala., in 2013.
