Local law enforcement is participating in the 4th annual, “Shop with the Cop” program, which is scheduled forDecember 1st, 2018 at the Hampton Inn and Suites located in Scottsbluff. There are only 100 students selected in the entire county, who are nominated by school staff or a School Resource Officer to “Shop with a Cop.”
The purpose of the event is to foster positive relationships between youth and officers. Each student will be given the opportunity to spend $75.00 to purchase gifts for members of their family. We will have 2-3 students that are assigned to each police officer. The students will ride in the police officers patrol vehicle to a local department store. In the spirit of giving and the joy that it brings the giver, they are encouraged to spend the money on family or friends rather than themselves. After shopping, special volunteers wrap their gifts for them so that they can have a snack and continue to get to know the police officers before being picked up by their parents.
This is a great event that only comes once a year. It is only possible through the generous donations of individuals and businesses in our community. If you would like to donate to this years “Shop with a Cop” event you can find the official GoFundMe Fundraiser athttps://www.gofundme.com/2018-sb-county-shop-with-a-cop, or any Platte Valley Bank location. Feel free to contact your local police unions for more information.

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.

Isaiah Roby scored a career-high 19 points and all five Husker starters reached double figures as Nebraska won its third straight road game with a 91-85 victory over Minnesota Tuesday night at Williams Arena.
Roby hit 8-of-10 shots from the field and narrowly missed a double-double by grabbing eight rebounds. James Palmer Jr. battled foul trouble to add 19 points, and he filled up the stat sheet by grabbing seven rebounds and dishing out a career-high nine assists. Anton Gill and Isaac Copeland Jr. each scored 12 points, while Glynn Watson Jr. chipped in 10 points.
While the starters combined for 72 points, a total of eight Huskers scored at least six points. Nebraska shot 50.8 percent from the field and was 11-of-23 from the 3-point line, tying their conference high with 11 threes. Seven different Huskers hit a three and Nebraska was also 18-of-22 from the free-throw line. The Huskers' 91 points were their most in a conference road game since 1999.
The win was Nebraska’s first victory at Williams Arena since a 77-60 victory over the Golden Gophers on Dec. 29, 2003. The Huskers improved to 18-8 with their sixth win in seven games, and NU remained in fourth place in the Big Ten standings with a 9-4 mark in conference action.
Nebraska survived a career night from Minnesota’s Nate Mason, who scored 34 points and hit seven 3-pointers. Jordan Murphy added 22 points as the Gophers shot 49.3 percent from the field and hit 10-of-19 from beyond the arc. Despite big nights from Mason and Murphy, Minnesota fell to 14-12 on the season and dropped to 3-10 in Big Ten play.
Nebraska led by as many as 15 in the first half, but it was Minnesota who raced out to a 7-0 lead less than two minutes into the game. The Huskers answered with back-to-back 3-pointers from Copeland and Roby that ignited an 11-2 run. Watson closed out the run with five straight points to give Nebraska its first lead at 11-9.
Nebraska led by four at the midway point of the first half before going on a 14-3 run. NU began the run with five straight points before Minnesota hit a three. The Huskers then scored the next nine points with Gill (5) and Palmer (4) combining for all nine points. Nebraska led 37-22 following the run, but after opening the game by scoring the first seven points, Minnesota also scored the final seven points of the half, using a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Isaiah Washington to trim the lead to 44-37 at the break.
After missing its first three shots of the game, Nebraska shot 59.3 percent in the first half (16-of-27), including 8-of-12 from beyond the arc. Five Huskers had at least five points in the first half, led by nine from Roby and eight apiece from Copeland and Gill. Mason kept Minnesota in the game with 15 first-half points, knocking down four of his six 3-point attempts. Jordan Murphy added 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting, as Minnesota shot 45.5 percent (15-of-33) from the field and 50 percent (6-of-12) from the 3-point line in the opening 20 minutes.
Minnesota scored the first four points of the second half to stretch its run to 11-0 going back to the first half. After trimming the lead to 44-41, Watson scored five straight points to stretch the lead back to eight, and Nebraska led 51-45 at the first media timeout of the second half.
Nebraska led 60-52 before the Golden Gophers used their third 7-0 run of the game to pull within one with 9:55 remaining. Gill halted the run with a pair of free throws before Michael Hurt tied the game at 62 with a three-point play. Copeland then knocked down a jumper, Gill hit two more free throws and Roby and Evan Taylor scored consecutive buckets in the paint to cap an 8-0 run in less than two minutes that gave Nebraska a 70-62 advantage at the 8:14 mark.
Following the run, the Huskers missed their next six shots but played Minnesota even over that stretch to maintain the eight-point advantage at 74-66 with five minutes to play. Nebraska continued to lead by at least five and went up by nine when Taylor saved a turnover and drilled a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired to put Nebraska on top 81-72 with 2:33 remaining.
Palmer stretched the lead to 10 with a pair of free throws with less than a minute remaining before Mason knocked down consecutive 3-pointers to quickly cut the lead to 87-83 with 35 seconds remaining. But Palmer knocked down four more free throws down the stretch as Nebraska held on for the six-point victory.
After playing four of its last five games on the road – and going 3-1 in that stretch – Nebraska returns home to host Rutgers on Saturday at 3 p.m. The matchup with the Scarlet Knights will be televised on the Big Ten Network. The Huskers play four of their final five regular-season games at Pinnacle Bank Arena beginning on Saturday.

Nebraska has named Husker great Barrett Ruud as a full-time assistant coach in charge of the inside linebackers. Ruud was hired as part of Head Coach Scott Frost’s staff in early December, but was elevated to an assistant coach role on Tuesday, the first day that FBS football programs were allowed to add a 10th full-time assistant coach.
The all-time leading tackler in Nebraska history, Ruud served on Frost’s staff at UCF the past two seasons as a defensive quality control administrator. Ruud helped the Knights to the greatest two-year turnaround in college football history, including a 13-0 record and Peach Bowl victory in 2017.
Ruud boasts extensive knowledge of the linebacker position from his playing days. He totaled a school-record 432 tackles in his Nebraska career, 90 more than any other Husker. He was a freshman All-American, a three-time All-Big 12 selection and a 2004 third-team All-American. Ruud played in the 2002 Rose Bowl, when Nebraska battled Miami for the national championship.
Following his Husker career, Ruud was a second-round pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected him with the 36th overall pick. Ruud spent eight seasons in the NFL, recording 658 tackles with six sacks, seven interceptions and six forced fumbles. He played six seasons in Tampa Bay and also played for Tennessee, New Orleans and Houston.
Ruud will be part of a Nebraska defensive staff that includes four other full-time assistants who worked at UCF the past two seasons, led by defensive coordinator Erik Chinander. Together the group, helped UCF make dramatic improvements over the past two seasons. The Knights were also among the top teams in the nation in takeaways, with their 58 takeaways the past two seasons ranking third among FBS schools in that time period.
In addition to Ruud’s appointment as an assistant coach, Nebraska also officially announced the following members of its football staff on Tuesday. Several of the individuals have been working the Huskers for the past month, while others joined the program in the past week following the completion of UCF’s season.
