The Nebraska football team will play in a bowl with a 5-7 record if invited to one, but coach Mike Riley and his assistants won't receive bowl bonuses.  Senior associate athletic director David Witty confirmed last night that athletic director Shawn Eichorst met with Riley and decided not to pay bowl bonuses outlined in the coaches' contracts.  The Omaha World-Herald first reported the decision.  Nebraska is first in line among 5-7 teams to fill bowl slots once all teams 6-6 and better have been selected.  Witty said contract wording might be tweaked in the future to cover going to a bowl with a losing record.  In other Husker football news, Sam Foltz was named as the Big Ten Punter of the Year. 

The Nebraska volleyball team remains fifth in the latest American Volleyball Coaches Association rankings.  The Huskers are 26-4 on the season after winning two matches last week.  They swept Illinois last Wednesday in three sets and beat Penn State in three on Saturday.  Nebraska will be in action next when they host Harvard in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday at 7:00.  If the Huskers win, they will play either Kansas State or Wichita State on Saturday.  Washington is the new number one with USC, Texas, and Minnesota rounding out the top four.

News Briefs:

The Norfolk Community Development Agency has unanimously approved the Redevelopment Plan for OCT Pipe, clearing the way for the company to use Tax Increment Financing for infrastructure improvements. At Monday night’s meeting, City Economic Development Director Courtney Dentlinger told members of the Development Agency, that OCT plans to invest $125-million in the community. This plan has already been approved by the Planning Commission, and must be approved by the City Council. 

As Northeast Nebraskans dig out their driveways and sidewalks, crews from the Nebraska Department of Roads are working round-the-clock to clear off our highways. Kevin Domogalla is the District 3 engineer for the DOR, based in Norfolk, and says each driver has a route of between 30 and 45 miles for which he's responsible, and that they’ll run those routes continuously until driving conditions are back to normal. 

The state senator who introduced a bill earlier this year to legalize cannabis oil for medical purposes will be in Norfolk Wednesday, and he’s bringing along some people who he says would be helped if his bill becomes law. Bellevue Sen. Tommy Garrett’s Cannabis Compassion and Care Act passed one round of debate in the Legislature before being bracketed and carried forward to the 2016 agenda. Garrett will hold a news conference beginning at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the Norfolk City Council Chambers at 309 N. 5th Street. 

Lincoln Police have identified a 29-year-old Central City man who was fatally shot during a confrontation with officers on Sunday. Police said Zachary Grigsby was the man who died in the confrontation. He was wounded after one officer was shot in the arm and another was punched.  Lincoln Police Chief Jim Peschong says Grigsby told officers he wouldn't go to jail. 

A joint legislative committee has failed to reach a consensus on ways to reduce Nebraska's reliance on property taxes to pay for schools. But some senators said Monday that hearings and testimony over the last few months gave them ideas to address the problem in next year's session.  Agricultural property taxes have soared in recent years because of skyrocketing prices for farm and ranchland. 

Less ethanol will be required for the nation's Renewable Fuel Standard. The EPA has lowered the requirement for corn-based ethanol from 15-billion gallons to 14.5-billion. Nebraska Corn Growers Association President Larry Mussack says it will lower corn prices, undermining farm income. Mussack says the industry had anticipated the decision, which should soften the blow somewhat. 

The Norfolk Community Theater in cooperation with Northeast Community College’s drama and music departments present My Fair Lady.  The original story is set in 1912 London, but director Adam Peterson says they’ve adapted it to modern-day London. Seven performances are scheduled for the Cox Activities Center Theater: Dec. 3, 4, 5, 10, 11 &12 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 13 at 2 p.m.  Advance tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students and may be purchased at  Tickets will cost three dollars extra at the door.
