About 260 area high school seniors have earned the right to wear blue and gold honor cords from Mid-Plains Community College at their graduation ceremonies this spring. That’s up from 225 students last year.

To receive a cord, the seniors must have successfully completed 12 or more credit hours of dual enrollment classes through MPCC. The classes count for both high school and college credit.

“The goal is to recognize students who have taken the initiative to pursue college credit while still in high school,” said Becky Barner, MPCC area career coach. “National research has shown that when students graduate high school with college credit already achieved, they are more likely to go on to college and more likely to finish a degree program in college.”

The following list shows how many seniors, as of May 9, had earned honor cords at area schools this year.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a man was arrested after deputies found marijuana in his car after stopping it along Interstate 80 near Lincoln.

The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says a deputy pulled over the car around 11 a.m. Friday after seeing the driver fail to signal a lane change near the U.S. Highway 77 exit. The deputy reported smelling marijuana in the car, and a subsequent search turned up 114 pounds (52 kilograms) of pot and some cannabis edibles.

The man, who lives in Sioux City, Iowa, was arrested on suspicion of possession for sale and suspicion of other crimes. Court records don't show that he's been formally charged.
