JUNE 21, 2019 (BRIDGEPORT, NEB.)  — The Morrill County Sheriff’s is able to release additional details regarding the crash that claimed the life of Nebraska State Trooper Jerry L. Smith, #373, on Thursday, June 20, 2019.

At approximately, 7:36 a.m., the Morrill County Sheriff’s Office received several 911 calls in reference to a three-vehicle crash west of Bridgeport on Highway 26, near mile marker 59. The 911 calls indicated that one of the vehicles involved was that of a Nebraska State Trooper. Sheriff’s deputies arrived on scene at 7:39 a.m. MDT.

The crash occurred when a 2002 Dodge Ram, driven by MaryJo Decora, 60, of Bridgeport, was stopped on the highway waiting to make a left turn into the Oregon Trail Memorial Cemetery. Decora’s vehicle was struck from behind by a 2005 Mazda Tribute, driven by Derek Lacrete, 28, of Lewellen. Lacrete’s vehicle hit the back, driver’s side of Decora’s vehicle, causing Lacrete’s vehicle to veer into the oncoming lane, colliding head-on with a Nebraska State Patrol 2016 Dodge Charger, driven by Trooper Jerry Smith, 51, of Scottsbluff.

Trooper Smith was pronounced deceased on the scene. Lacrete was ejected from his vehicle during the crash and was also pronounced deceased on the scene.

The Morrill County Sheriff’s Office, Nebraska State Patrol, Morrill County ALS, Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office, Wyoming State Patrol, and fire departments from Bridgeport, Bayard, and Broadwater all responded to the scene.

The crash is still under investigation by the Morrill County Sheriff’s Office with reconstruction assistance from the Scotts Bluff County Sheriff’s Office.

Funeral services for Trooper Smith are pending. Details will be released when appropriate.

CURTIS, Neb. – Ron Rosati, dean of the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture at Curtis, plans to retire Aug. 5 from NCTA. Rosati was tapped as head administrator for the University of Nebraska’s sole two-year institution in July 2013.

 

Before completing his University of Nebraska service at year-end, Rosati will serve as senior advisor for the Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA) in Kigali, Rwanda. Opening in September, RICA is an English language institution dedicated to educating and inspiring a new generation of innovators in agriculture in Rwanda.

 

“Under Ron Rosati’s leadership, NCTA truly reached new heights in providing academic and financial access to higher education, as well as career preparation in the ag and veterinary technology industries,” said Mike Boehm, NU vice president for agriculture and natural resources, and Harlan Vice Chancellor for the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

 

“I want to thank Ron for his exemplary service and dedication over the past six years and wish him the best as he transitions into retirement.”

 

Kelly Bruns, director at NU’s West Central Research and Extension Center based in North Platte, has been named NCTA interim dean, while continuing to serve in his WCREC role. Bruns will lead NCTA campus administration with associate dean Jennifer McConville.

 

“It has been a privilege for me to serve NCTA as dean,” Rosati said. “The college is an exceptional place to work due to its small size, focus on agriculture and veterinary technology, and its emphasis on experiential learning.”

 

Rosati is a native of New York and has earned degrees in agricultural education and agronomy. He earned his doctorate from Iowa State, masters and bachelor’s from Cornell University, and associate degree from SUNY Farmingdale. Prior to moving to Nebraska, Rosati served in administrative capacities as provost at Southeast Missouri State University, provost at Alfred State College, State University of New York, and was a dean at Texas A&M University, Kingsville.

 

Rosati taught agricultural engineering technology and aquaculture for 19 years at Texas A&M University–Kingsville, Illinois State University, The Ohio State University – Agricultural Technical Institute, and Iowa State University.

 

Rosati led strategic initiatives at NCTA including a 28.5% enrollment growth from 2013-2018, increased fiscal strength from deficit to fiscal health, and added academic programs in agricultural welding, equine industry management, a general agriculture online degree certificate, and partnerships in dairy and poultry management.

 

“NCTA has been recognized nationally for the quality of its academic programs and the success of its graduates. It’s been very rewarding for me to work with the faculty and staff who are responsible for those successes,” Rosati said.

 

Other administrative progress at NCTA the past six years included developing new procedures and policies for advising, admissions, registration, student payment procedures, student transfers, academic catalogs, student and employee handbooks, and Title IX and ADA compliance.

 

Increased appropriations by the Nebraska Legislature enabled significant campus progress in programs, student resources, and pay equity for faculty. New initiatives in public relations and recruiting, federal approval for enrolling international students, and reaccreditation were further benchmarks.

 

Bruns, who holds a doctorate in animal science, has served as director of WCREC since Nov. 2015. Jerry Volesky, longtime range and forage specialist, will serve as interim associate director at WCREC.

 

A national search will be launched to identify a new permanent dean of NCTA.

AUGUST 28, 2019 (CURTIS, NEB.)  — The Frontier County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of the Nebraska State Patrol and several other law enforcement agencies, has arrested a juvenile for making a threatening social media post toward Medicine Valley School.

Lincoln -- A pair of former Huskers are playing the FIBA Basketball World Cup which begins over the weekend.  The event takes place in China from Aug. 31 to Sept. 15, and Tai Webster (New Zealand) and Jorge Brian Diaz (Puerto Rico) are competing for their respective countries in the competition.

Pool play begins on Saturday and runs until Sept. 5, when the top two teams in each pool will advance, while the bottom two teams in each group will be in their own classification round. All of the pool play games are available on ESPN+

It is the second straight time that Webster and Diaz have played in the FIBA World Cup, as both played in the 2014 event in Spain. The event was moved to the year prior to the Olympics following the 2014 FIBA World Cup.

Webster, who played at Nebraska from 2014 to 2017, is currently playing with Galatasaray in Turkey for a second consecutive season. Last year, he averaged 10.9 points, 3.7 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game in 33 games in the country’s top division. He also played in the 2018-19 Eurocup, averaging 12.5 points and 4.2 assist per game in 10 contests. At Nebraska, Webster was a three-year starter for the Huskers, earning second-team All-Big Ten honors in 2017, as he averaged 17.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. He was NU’s starting point guard during the 2013-14 season when Nebraska reached the NCAA Tournament.

Diaz, who played for three seasons at Nebraska (2010-12), has played professionally in his native Puerto Rico for the past seven years, helping Quebradillas to a pair of championships. At Nebraska, he enjoyed his best year in 2010-11, averaging 10.5 points and 4.4 rebounds per game to help the Huskers to 19 wins and an NIT appearance. His final season was cut short by injuries, as he played just 16 game and averaged 8.6 points per game.

Results from the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 will qualify seven nations for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The top two finishing teams in the World Cup from the Americas and Europe zones will earn qualifying places in the 2020 Olympics, as will the top finisher from Africa, Asia and Oceania. Additionally, Olympic host Japan automatically qualified, and the final four nations will qualify through four FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments that will be held in 2020 in advance of the Olympics.
