JULY 2, 2018 (GRAND ISLAND, NEB.)  — Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) have arrested two men and seized 52 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop on Interstate 80.

The stop occurred at approximately 1:45 p.m. Sunday near Aurora, when a trooper observed an eastbound 2018 Jeep speeding near mile marker 329. During the traffic stop, the trooper became suspicious of criminal activity and conducted a search of the vehicle.

The search revealed marijuana inside two large boxes in the rear of the vehicle. Additional packages of marijuana were found hidden in the tire compartment. The total weight of the marijuana seized was 52 pounds. The estimated street value is $156,000.

The driver, Fahiem Faiyaz, 23, and passenger, Ameer Ghafoori, 21, both of California, were arrested for possession of marijuana – more than one pound, possession with intent to deliver, and no Drug Tax stamp. Both men were lodged in Hamilton County Jail.

AUGUST 3, 2018 (GRAND ISLAND, NEB.)  — Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) have arrested four people and recovered hundreds of stolen items, fraudulent gift cards and credit cards, and a stolen vehicle during a traffic stop on Interstate 80 in Hall County.

At approximately 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 1, troopers responded to a report of several men trying to use potentially stolen gift cards to purchase new gift cards at Casey’s General Store locations in multiple communities. When troopers located the vehicle traveling eastbound on I-80 near Grand Island, it was determined that the 2018 Mazda CX-5 SUV was a rental that had been reported stolen by the rental company.

During the traffic stop, troopers also located a large quantity of stolen items and fraudulent gift cards. Stolen items found in the vehicle included 925 PlayStation, Xbox One, Xbox 360, or Nintendo Switch video games, 68 fraudulent gift cards or credit cards, 22 miscellaneous gift cards or credit cards, and hundreds of packs of cigarettes. Troopers also found a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle. The total estimated value of the stolen items is $50,000.

The driver, Herbert Broomfield Jr, 25, and passengers, Eugene Alvarez, 26, Antonio Franklin, 29, and Daniel Moore, 28, all of Chicago, Illinois, were arrested for criminal possession of a forgery device, unlawful manufacture of a financial transaction device, and possession of marijuana – less than an ounce. Broomfield was also arrested for unauthorized use of a propelled vehicle and Moore was arrested for criminal impersonation. All four men were lodged in Hall County Jail.

JULY 6, 2018 (LINCOLN, NEB.)  Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) took 16 impaired drivers off the road during special enforcement operations over the July 4th holiday.

The effort, which ran from July 3-5, placed an emphasis on taking drunk drivers off the road. Troopers worked to reduce the potential for serious injury or fatality crashes in several counties identified as priority counties by the Nebraska Department of Transportation – Highway Safety Office (NDOT-HSO).

In addition to the 16 arrests for drunk or drugged driving, troopers also issued citations for speeding (432), open container (6), minor in possession (6), driving under suspensions (19), no proof of insurance (15), no seat belt (39), and improper child restraint (9). Troopers also responded to 154 calls for assistance from motorists on Nebraska roads.

This effort, which included saturation patrols and vehicle checks, was made possible thanks in part to a grant for $12,000 from NDOT-HSO.

JULY 24, 2018 (LINCOLN, NEB.)  — After months of training, two new dogs have joined the force of the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) Police Service Dogs unit.

Koda, a two-year-old Belgian Malinois, is partnered with Trooper Jesse Pfeifer and is stationed in Norfolk. Last week, Koda helped find 141 pounds of marijuana in a vehicle.

Amos, a 15-month-old Dutch Shepherd, is partnered with Trooper Brent Potthoff and is stationed in Sidney. Both Amos and Koda are dual purpose K9s, trained for patrol and detecting controlled substances.

“These dogs are highly trained and their handlers go through rigorous training as well,” said Lt. Gordon Downing, Commander of the NSP Police Service Dog (PSD) division. “The partnership between a handler and a dog is critical in order to respond as a team to the situations they face while on the job.”

These new K9s bring the NSP PSD unit to nine dogs spread out around the state, with another expected to join the team in the coming months. The dogs live and work with their trooper handler.

Koda and Amos replace two recent retirees: Eddie, who was previously partnered with Trooper Potthoff, and Murphy, who retired when his handler was promoted to sergeant within the NSP Patrol Division in Omaha

Each summer, children wait for the last bell of the school year. Summer is an exciting time for children to enjoy playtime with friends, a week at camp, a family vacation, or time at the pool. However, for many children who receive free and reduced-price meals at school, summer can mean hunger. Just as learning doesn't end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition.

Dundy County Stratton Schools provides free meals to ALL children during the summer as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Summer Meal Porgram. This summer, meals will be served at Benkelman Elementary, Monday through Friday from 12:00 to 1:00 MST and from a mobile feeding site at the Stratton Park on Tuesday and Thursday from 12:00 to 12:30 CST. Meals will be served from June 4th through August 2nd. There are no income requirements or registration. Anyone 18 and under may come to eat for FREE. They will be starting our summer with a Kick Off event on June 4th from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM MST at the Benkelman elementary school. The fire department will be here giving fire truck rides and there will be bounce houses and face painting. Summer activities will include a school garden and cooking classes at the Benkelman site.
For more information you can contact me at the Benkelman Elementary School, 308-423-2216.

Franklin wins the Alma Golf Invitational with a team score 366, Southern Valley comes in second with a 368, Loomis third with a 400, Cambridge in fourth place with a 428, Alma finishes fifth with a 432, finishing in sixth place was Bertrand 447, in seventh place was Elm Creek 458, and finishing eighth place was Arapahoe 512.  View all the individual scores below.





The McCook Community College baseball team opens the 2018 season Saturday with a roster full of returning position players but a very young pitching staff.

MCC opens play Saturday in Liberal, Kan. against Seward County and Coach Jon Olsen will rely on his team’s experience and solid batting order to lead the team while the pitching staff develops.

The Indians return 10 guys who started games last year. “Technically we can start a player at every position who started at some point last year,” Olsen said.

On the mound, MCC’s 2018 roster has three pitchers with 40 innings of experience between them. The Indians must reload a pitching staff that set a school record for strikeouts in a season, 410. The trio of returners had 32.

“On the mound, we are going to be counting on guys to step up and do well for us as freshmen,” Olsen said. “We have 14 arms, only one who pitched more than 10 innings last year.” The Indians will have six true freshman among the pitchers and with five transfers.

“We have some talented arms in this program but some of them don’t have a ton of experience,” Olsen said.

MBB standings graphicMCC is coming off a 29-27 season and a 20-16 conference mark, which was fourth best in what has become a highly-competitive Empire Conference that includes Western Nebraska, Northeastern JC, Trinidad State, Lamar, Otero, and Miles. 2017 marked MCC’s first back-to-back playoff appearances since the post-season format changed in 2008. The top four teams in the standings advance to the post-season playoffs.

The coach doesn’t look for falloff from any conference foes.

“I have a ton of respect for the coaches in this conference, they all get things done in different ways but if you don’t show up ready to play in any conference game, you’re going to get beat,” Olsen said.

He pointed out the top five teams in the conference were separated by three games in the standings.

Olsen said in looking at all the teams it’s difficult to say that one team is a clear-cut favorite.

“Every team is a little like us, really strong in one area and some questions in other areas. There isn’t one team with a ton of experience in both pitching and offense. This conference is going to be a wide-open dogfight,” Olsen said.

Sophomore bats will be the key for the Indians to make it a third straight playoff appearance. Last year MCC dropped its first six conference games before the playoff run.

First baseman/outfield Jacob Sanford, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, earned first team Region IX honors last year and catcher Dylan White, Las Vegas, was a second-team all-region selection as a freshman.

The Indian offense has players who produced well as freshmen. Of the eight position players with at least 18 games played, they collectively had 1,030 plate appearances while hitting .297 with 31 homeruns, 150 RBIs, a .386 on-base average and a .469 slugging percentage.

Olsen is expecting even better production from this core-group of sophomores and key offensive contributions from his newcomers but he said with inexperienced pitchers, it will be imperative MCC step up its defense.

“Last year we were bad defensively, but we had high strikeout guys on the mound that shielded our defense.”

The first of 25 scheduled home games is set for Feb. 21 when the Indians take on Colby in a nine-inning 3 p.m. Game. MCC has home doubleheaders scheduled with Hastings JV Feb. 22 and against Northeast CC Feb. 28.

Here is a look at the 2018 Indians by position:

CATCHER: Sophomore Dylan White and freshman Beau Hawley, Greeley, Colo., are expected to see the majority of the action. White hit .348 last season with five homers and 19 RBI. When he was injured during the fall, Hawley was able to step in and get a lot of experience. “Dylan had a good year for us and is a good defender as well, and with the experience Beau got in the fall I’m pretty happy with where we are there,” Olsen said.

FIRST BASE: Jay Sanford will anchor the MCC lineup as the Indians’ top returning hitter batting .345 with 11 homeruns and 39 RBI. The sophomore will play first base and also leftfield, which will allow Jonny Giunta, Milton, Ontario, (who started 14 games last year) time in the lineup.

MIDDLE INFIELD: Four sophomores are expected to fill the lineup this year at second base, shortstop, and third base. Jason Hill, Surrey, B.C., started 44 games last year and batted .313 with a .435 on-base percentage. Mike Sookdeo, Bramton, Ontario, played mostly at DH last year where he hit .237 with seven homeruns and 32 RBI and will likely see time at third base this year. Angel Mojica, Denver, is one of MCC’s most improved players according to Olsen having played 16 games last year with a .194 batting average. Hunter Rynders, Centennial, Colo., can play all infield spots and saw action in 18 games last year batting .300. Of his incoming freshman the coach has tabbed Julio Seperich, Las Vegas, as his best overall defender on the team both in the infield and the outfield. Olsen expects him to see starts at second base, third, shortstop and centerfield. Freshman Jacob Reid, Mississauga, Ontario, is a player who can provide very good offense and Mark Starks, Blair gives the Indians depth and offensive pop off the bench.

OUTFIELD: In addition to Sanford and Seperich, three returning sophomores look to frequent the lineup from the outfield. Tanner Zeggil, Stagner, Ontario, played in 46 games a year ago and batted .310 with a pair of home runs. Chris Bellemere, Grande-Carriere, Quebec, started 17 games and homered three times and drove in 10 with a .203 batting average and .390 slugging. Dalton Barling, Ashland, saw action in 16 games batting .212,

STARTING PITCHING: McCook High School’s Kaden Sitzman emerges as the staff’s most experienced pitcher appearing in 16 games, starting four, and compiling a 3-3 record in 29.1 innings with 25 strikeouts. Other candidates for the starting rotation include: Jacob Lombardelli, Windsor, Colo., Connor McGonigal, Omaha Burke, and high school teammates Jesse Bloom and Ryan Marstiller, Centennial, Colo.

BULLPEN: Sophomore Tyler Cox, Mississauga, emerged as the top relief pitcher during fall camp. He appeared in five games, threw 8.1 innings and posted a 1-0 record with a 2.16 earned run average last season. The other sophomore is David Perez, Las Vegas, who worked in three innings last year over four appearances. Freshmen pitchers with a chance to work their way into key roles include: Shaun Hickey, Summerville, N.B.; Connor Williams, Milton, Ontario; Casey Quagliano, Colby, Kan.; Keyshawn Royal, Tampa; and three Greeley, Colo., pitchers in Spencer Ray, Braydon Peif and Micah Dorsey.
