North Platte is moving to add vaping and e-cigarettes to its public no-smoking ban. The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to give first-round approval to ban alternative nicotine products and electronic nicotine delivery systems to its tobacco regulations. 

The measure also would raise the minimum age from 18 to 19 for using, buying or possessing such products. Minors could possess them in their home under “direct supervision” of a parent or guardian, as they now can with tobacco products. 

The proposed ordinance must be approved twice more to be enacted.

  The Thanksgiving holiday is almost here and soon families will be coming together for a time of celebration and thankfulness. In addition to the turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and all the other fixings, the Grand Island Fire Department encourages residents to put fire safety on their Thanksgiving menu.


   According to the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA), Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires. In 2017, more than three times as many home cooking fires occurred on Thanksgiving as on a typical day with U.S. fire departments responding to an estimated 1,600 home cooking fires on the holiday. 


   Along with NFPA, the Grand Island Fire Department offers the following tips to keep families safe this holiday season:


  • Be sure to remove previous food and grease buildup from burners, stove top, and oven before starting Thanksgiving cooking.

  • Stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling, or broiling food. If leaving the kitchen, turn off the stove.  

  • When simmering, baking, roasting, or boiling food, check it regularly and remain in the home while the food is cooking. 

  • Keep children at least three feet away from the stove as steam or splashes from vegetables, gravy, and other dishes can cause serious burns.

  • Avoid wearing loose fitting clothing while cooking and if wearing long sleeves roll them up. 

  • Keep the number of people in the kitchen to a minimum, including children and pets, to avoid injuries from hot spills or causing tripping hazards. Crowded kitchens can cause confusion and result in burns.

  • Be sure electrical cords from appliances such as electric knives, coffeemakers, plate warmers, and mixers are not dangling off the counter or within easy reach of children. 

  • Keep anything that can catch fire such as oven mitts, wooden utensils, towels, and wrappers away from stoves and ovens.

  • Never leave children alone near lit candles. Furthermore, matches and utility lighters should be kept in a locked cabinet out of the reach of children.

  • Test smoke alarms to ensure alarms are working properly.

  • Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen in case of emergency and know how to use it.


   As noted above, many safety tips involve kids. The Fire Department suggests having activities that keep kids out of the kitchen during the busy food preparation time.  Games, puzzles, or books centered on Thanksgiving will keep kids busy, but still allows them to be included in the holiday celebration.


   Grand Island Fire Chief Cory Schmidt says, “The GIFD wants you have a safe Thanksgiving that is free from fire or accidents.  Remember to stand by your pan and keep a close watch on your cooking and baking this holiday season.”

Two people already charged with kidnapping two people have been accused of killing one, whose body was found in a drainage pipe in southwest Nebraska.

Chase County Court records say 24-year-old Kevin German, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and 22-year-old Keonna Carter, of Taylorsville, Utah, are charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping and other crimes. 

The two were arrested Saturday in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Court records say they’re suspected leaving 22-year-old Annika Swanson, of Imperial, in a drainage pipe in a Chase County pasture on Nov. 14. The records say Carter told investigators that German beat up Swanson and, accompanied by Carter, forced Swanson down into the pipe on Nov. 14. Using Carter’s information, authorities found and recovered Swanson’s body in the pipe on Sunday. Her father had reported her missing three days earlier.

German, Carter and a third person are also suspected of kidnapping a 20-year-old woman. Authorities have said she’s safe now.

The Nebraska women's basketball team takes aim at a second straight Big Ten road win while shooting for a season series sweep of Minnesota on Thursday night in Minneapolis. Tip-off between the Huskers (15-5, 5-4 Big Ten) and the Golden Gophers (12-8, 2-7 Big Ten) is set for 7 p.m. (CT) at Williams Arena.

Live radio coverage for Thursday's game can be heard on B107.3 FM and 1400 AM KLIN in Lincoln and ESPN 590 AM in Omaha beginning at 6:45 p.m. (CT). Stations across the state will also carry the broadcast on the Learfield IMG College Husker Sports Network. Free live audio can be found at Huskers.com, the Huskers App and on TuneIn.

A live video stream will be available for BTN+ subscribers.

Nebraska heads to Minnesota after earning its first Big Ten road win of the season with a 72-71 victory at Wisconsin on Saturday. The Huskers rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to take a four-point lead in the closing seconds before the Badgers hit a three at the buzzer for the final margin.

It marked the third consecutive game that Nebraska rallied from a double-digit second-half deficit to take a lead in the fourth quarter. In a 74-71 win over Michigan (Jan. 19), the Huskers trailed by 13 points in the third quarter. In a 76-68 loss to Purdue (Jan. 22), the Huskers trailed by 21 in the second quarter and 13 in the third before taking a four-point lead midway through the fourth quarter, only to see Purdue answer down the stretch.

Junior center Kate Cain led the Huskers in the first meeting with Minnesota this season, a 72-58 Husker win at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln (Jan. 4). Cain notched her third straight double-double to open Big Ten play with 19 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks. Cain needs three blocks on Thursday to tie the Nebraska career block record (238, Janet Smith, 1979-82).

Sam Haiby, a sophomore from Moorhead, Minn., also had a big game for the Big Red in the first meeting with the Gophers. Haiby scored 17 points and grabbed a season-high eight rebounds, while adding three assists and two steals. In Saturday's win at Wisconsin, Haiby finished with 11 points and a career-high five steals, including a key steal with 7.7 seconds left and a pair of free throws with five seconds left to seal the win.

Senior Hannah Whitish (Barneveld, Wis.) also had 17 points on 5-of-8 three-point shooting in the first meeting with Minnesota.

Head Coach: Lindsay Whalen (Minnesota, 2004)
Second Season at Minnesota (33-19); Second Season Overall (33-19)

Scouting The Minnesota Golden Gophers
• Head coach Lindsay Whalen's Minnesota team has experienced turmoil since the first meeting with the Huskers in Lincoln on Jan. 4. Nebraska knocked off then-No. 24 Minnesota, 72-58, to drop the Golden Gophers to 11-3 overall and 1-2 in the Big Ten.
• While Nebraska knocked the Gophers out of the top-25 in the AP rankings for the second straight season, Minnesota's 2020 campaign took a step in a more negative direction with the departure of leading scorer Destiny Pitts (16.3 ppg), who chose to enter the NCAA Transfer Portal after playing just one more game with the Gophers.
• Although Minnesota is just 1-6 in its last seven games, four of the losses are by one possession, including a one-point loss to No. 18 Iowa (76-75), a two-point loss to No. 23 Northwestern (56-54), a three-point loss to Ohio State (66-63) and a three-point loss at Illinois (74-71)
• Minnesota has shown plenty of fight, including a 72-59 win at Purdue (Jan. 19). The game was tied at 43 late in the third quarter when Minnesota erupted on a 19-0 run to surge to victory.
• Minnesota is 0-4 at Williams Arena in Big Ten play this season.
• Minnesota slipped to 12-8 overall and 2-7 with a 65-52 loss at No. 20 Indiana on Monday.
• Although the Gophers have had to make up for the loss of Pitts' 16.3 points per game, their offense without Pitts over the last five games is averaging 66.3 points. In Minnesota's first three Big Ten losses with Pitts, the Gophers averaged just 58.3 points per game.
• All five of Minnesota's guards have stepped up their production without Pitts. Junior Masha Adashchyk started the four games after Pitts' departure. Adashchyk has averaged 4.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 steal the last five games. In her first four Big Ten games, she totaled just four points, seven boards and one steal. She had no stats in five minutes off the bench in Lincoln.
• Freshman guard Jasmine Powell drew her first start at Indiana on Monday night. She has increased her production, averaging 11.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals the last five games. Through the first four Big Ten games, Powell averaged 5.0 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists. Powell had eight points and four rebounds in the first meeting with the Huskers.
• Senior guard Jasmine Brunson has stepped up big, averaging 13.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.2 steals. Through the first four Big Ten games, Brunson averaged 8.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and no steals. She had seven points and an assist in the first meeting with Nebraska.
• Junior Gadiva Hubbard has increased her averages to 12.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals the last five games. She averaged just 8.8 points through Minnesota's first four Big Ten games. Hubbard had 10 points and four boards in Lincoln (Jan. 4).
• Freshman guard Sara Scalia is averaging a team-best 14.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.4 steals the last five games. She averaged 13.0 points and 5.5 rebounds through the first four Big Ten games. Scalia had five points and seven rebounds in the first meeting with Nebraska.
• Senior Taiye Bello continues to be the focus inside for Minnesota. The athletic 6-2 forward is nearly averaging a double-double with 12.2 points and 9.9 rebounds, including 10.5 points and 9.6 boards in Big Ten play. Bello also has 35 blocks. She led Minnesota with 16 points in the first meeting at Nebraska. 
• Kehinde Bello, a 6-2 forward and twin sister of Gopher starter Taiye Bello, has managed 1.1 points and 2.1 rebounds on the year. 
• Sophomore Barbora Tomancova has also provided more for Minnesota the last five games, averaging 1.8 points and 4.4 rebounds. Tomancova did not play at all in the first four Big Ten contests.
• In Big Ten play, Minnesota is shooting just 38.7 percent from the field, but a strong 35.6 percent (62-174) from three-point range. The Gophers also excel at the free throw line on the season (.753). They have been even in turnovers but a minus-1.2 boards per game in Big Ten play.

Nebraska vs. Minnesota Series History
• Nebraska leads the all-time series with Minnesota 14-9, including a 72-58 Husker win in Lincoln (Jan. 4, 2020) in the first meeting between the two schools this season. 
• Kate Cain led Nebraska with 19 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks, while Sam Haiby and Hannah Whitish each pitched in 17 points in the win. Taiye Bello led Minnesota with 16 points.
• Nebraska owns three straight series wins, including a 79-74 victory in Minneapolis (Dec. 31, 2017) in the last meeting at Williams Arena.  
• Minnesota's last win was a 79-69 OT victory at Pinnacle Bank Arena (Feb. 4, 2017).
• Nebraska owns a 9-4 edge as Big Ten foes.
• Nebraska is 11-3 all-time against Minnesota in Lincoln.The Huskers are 2-6 against Minnesota in Minneapolis and 1-0 against the Gophers in the Big Ten Tournament (March 7, 2014).
• Although women's basketball was not a full varsity sport at Nebraska until 1975-76, a women's team from Nebraska suffered its first defeat at Minnesota in 1904 after going unbeaten between 1897 and 1903. Two weeks after the first meeting with Minnesota, Nebraska beat the same team in Lincoln.
• Minnesota's Laura Coenen scored 42 points for the Gophers in a 90-79 win over the Huskers on Nov. 30, 1984. That effort is tied for the most points by any opponent in a game against the Huskers.

Nebraska Streaks
• Kate Cain owns Nebraska's longest streak of consecutive starts (81).
• Nicea Eliely owns Nebraska's second-longest streak of starts (76).
• Nicea Eliely and Leigha Brown are the only Huskers to score points in each of Nebraska's first 20 games this season.
• Kate Cain and Isabelle Bourne are the only Huskers to record at least one rebound for Nebraska in all 20 games this season.
• Eliely was the only Husker to score in all 30 games last season, and the only Husker to score in all of Nebraska's games against Big Ten Conference foes. She has scored in 54 consecutive games overall. She did not score in a win over Penn State on Feb. 22, 2018, the only time in the past three seasons (including 2019-20, 74 games) that Eliely was shut out.
• The Huskers have knocked down at least one three in 362 straight games dating back to a loss at UTEP on Dec. 20, 2008. Nebraska has hit at least two three-pointers in 241 consecutive games.

Numbers to Watch 
(2) Kristian Hudson needs two assists to reach 400 in her career (383 at FIU).
(3) Kate Cain is three blocked shots away from matching the Nebraska career block record held by Janet Smith (238, 1979-82).
(7) Kristian Hudson needs seven rebounds to reach 400 in her career (372 at FIU).
(12) Hannah Whitish is 12 assists away from No. 6 on the Nebraska career assist list (444, Amy Stephens, 1986-89).
(16) Nicea Eliely is 16 points away from 900 in her career.
(100) Grace Mitchell's next appearance will be the 100th game of her Husker career.

CALABASAS, Calif. (AP) — An accident investigator looking into the helicopter crash that killed former Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant and eight others says the pilot told air traffic controllers in his last radio message that he was climbing to avoid a cloud layer. National Transportation Safety Board Jennifer Homendy says the pilot had asked for and received special clearance to fly in heavy fog just minutes before the crash and was flying at 1400 feet when he went south and then west. The fog was considered dangerous enough that local police agencies grounded their choppers.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The NBA has decided it’s too soon for the Los Angeles Lakers to resume their schedule in the wake of Kobe Bryant’s death in a helicopter crash on Sunday. The league has postponed tonight’s game against the Clippers and will reschedule it. The decision came one day after Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and seven others perished in the crash about 30 miles outside Los Angeles.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds have added another power bat to their lineup by working out a four-year, $64 package with outfielder Nick Castellanos (kas-tee-AH’-nohs). He batted .289 last season with the Tigers and Cubs, who got him in a midseason trade. Castellanos hit 27 homers overall, drove in 73 runs and had a major league-leading 58 doubles while playing mostly in right field for Detroit and Chicago.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Starling Marte (mahr-TAY') has been acquired by the Arizona Diamondbacks from the Pittsburgh Pirates for two prospects. The two-time Gold Glove recipient and 2016 All-Star batted .295 and set career highs with 23 home runs and 81 RBIs for the Bucs in 2019. The Pirates receive Liover Peguero and Brennan Malone for Marte, who has two years left on his current contract.

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Roger Federer has overcome seven match points in the Australian Open quarterfinals to turn things around and edge Tennys Sandgren of the United States in five sets. The 100th-ranked Sandgren had three chances at the biggest victory of his career at 5-4 in the fourth set and another four in the ensuing tiebreaker. But he was unable to convert any of those. The 38-year-old Federer somehow pulled out that tiebreaker to extend the match and then was better in the fifth.
