 Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Chase Utley has received a two-game suspension from Major League Baseball for his slide in Game Two of the National League Division Series against the New York Mets.  Utley sent Ruben Tejada airborne after his jarring slide into second base, leaving the Mets second baseman with a fractured right fibula.  Utley's agent said there would be an appeal, although Major League Baseball would likely try to resolve the matter before the series resumes with Game Three today.

News Briefs:

Tonight's meeting of the Norfolk Airport Authority Board once again includes a request from Barnstormers Restaurant for reimbursement for improvements to the septic system that serves the restaurant. Last month, the request from Barnstormers’ President Dave Fauss for about $34,500 was tabled pending renegotiation of the lease for the former airport terminal building. Tonight’s meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Airport Authority building.


In a significant victory for the agricultural and business sectors, a federal appellate court Friday, suspended nationwide implementation of the “Waters of the United States” -WOTUS - rule until further order of the court. The rule, which took effect Aug. 28, was proposed in April 2014 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to clarify the agencies’ authority under the Clean Water Act over various waters.  The decision to “stay” the rule, granted by the U.S. Court of Appeals, comes a little more than month after a U.S. District Court judge in North Dakota issued a temporary injunction against implementation of the regulation by 13 states, including Nebraska.


National Pork Producers Council Chief Environmental Counsel Michael Fromica says the appellate court's ruling on the WOTUS rule ensures that farmers will not see implementation during harvest season. Fromica says the court also called into question the EPA’s rulemaking process.


Nebraska U.S. Senator Deb Fischer acknowledges that agriculture stands to benefit from the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, but she is hesitant to give it her full support. Fischer says she wants to study the agreement, and the impact it might have on the Nebraska economy.


Business owners in Pender are eagerly waiting for the U.S. Supreme Court to decide whether the Omaha Tribe's liquor taxes apply to them. The case has been pending since the business owners sued in 2007. The Supreme Court agreed this fall to hear the dispute that centers on the boundaries of the tribe's reservation.  Frazey says they might forego alcohol sales, which would hurt business. The tribe's alcohol rules require a separate license and impose a 10 percent tax.


There isn't typically anything good to say about winter in Nebraska but there is good news from the American Gas Association. Managing Director of Policy Analysis Bruce McDowell says inventories are good but there are several other factors in play that mean a savings to consumers, including the El Nino weather pattern. McDowell says he expects customers will see a five-to-seven percent decrease in their heating bills this winter.


The Student Government Association at Northeast Community College is moving ahead with its signature project – placing a sculpture of the college mascot on the campus. At last week’s meeting of the College Board of Governors, SGA President Corby Forbes said the hawk will be placed to the left of the main doors to the Cox Activities Center. Northeast welding instructor Merle Mead has been selected as the artist, and he has agreed to craft the hawk at no cost to the students. The sculpture is expected to be in place in time for graduation in the spring of 2016.
