Atkinson Boy's TD Run Nebraska's Top Story for 2013

LINCOLN (AP) - A  touchdown run by a 7-year-old boy with cancer has been voted by Associated Press newspaper and broadcaster members as the top Nebraska story for 2013.  The 69-yard scamper by little Jack Hoffman occurred during the spring intrasquad game. Jack's pluck captured the hearts of Nebraska football fans and millions of other people who saw a YouTube video.  Finishing second in the voting for this year was the resignation of Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy after revelations that he made thousands of calls to women other than his wife on a state-issued cellphone.  U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns' decision not to seek a second term finished third in the voting.  Other top stories include those about an October blizzard in western Nebraska and the confirmation of Chuck Hagel as defense secretary.
