Two years before the playoffs start in college football, the Southeastern Conference is staging a semifinal to determine who plays Notre Dame in the Bowl Championship Series title game. Alabama was second and Georgia third in the BCS standings released yesterday. The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs play Saturday in Atlanta for the SEC championship. The winner will advance to the National Championship game in Miami on Jan. 7 against the Fighting Irish, who locked up their spot Saturday with a 22-13 victory against Southern California. Florida, at 11-1, is fourth in the standings, but with no games left, looks stuck behind their SEC rivals. One way or another, the SEC will get a shot at its seventh straight BCS championship. The Bowl Championship Series is in its second-to-last season. It will be replaced by a four-team playoff in 2014. Nebraska is ranked twelfth.

Dwight Eisenhower renamed the Presidential retreat “Camp David” in honor of his grandson.
A Madison man was arrested early Saturday morning in connection with a shooting incident at a downtown Norfolk bar. Norfolk Police Captain Michael Bauer says 28-year-old Jordan Beehn was taken into custody by Stanton County Sheriff's officers following a short pursuit on Highway 24 west of Stanton. Beehn faces charges of first degree assault, use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and second degree assault in connection with the shooting at Club Hollywood. Bauer says the incident apparently started just before 1 a.m. Saturday with an altercation between two females. Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger reports that Beehn was taken into custody on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and felony operation of a motor vehicle to avoid arrest. His wife, 25-year-old Kelly Beehn, was also taken into custody, and a handgun and ammunition were found.
A pipeline spill in southeast Nebraska earlier this week that leaked as much as 150 gallons of gasoline in a farm field. Lincoln television station San Antonio-based Nu Star Energy confirmed the leak near Fairmont. The leak in an 8-inch diameter pipeline was discovered Wednesday by the landowner whose field was affected. The landowner reported smelling gasoline fumes. Nu Star Energy says it immediately shut down the pipeline, which carries gasoline from Geneva to Yankton, S.D., and that no water was contaminated. The company says the spill was cleaned up and the line has since been repaired. The cause of the leak is under investigation.
Businesses that move products on the Mississippi River continue to seek the government's help as the river approaches historic lows. The Army Corps of Engineers on Friday began reducing the outflow from an upper Missouri River reservoir to ease drought conditions in that part of the country. The move will reduce the amount of water flowing into the Mississippi River and could mean further restrictions on barge traffic by early December, or perhaps even closure of the river from St. Louis to Cairo, Ill.
Nebraska lawmakers have scheduled a joint hearing to examine how the federal health care law will affect the state budget. The Health and Human Services Committee and the Appropriations Committee will meet Tuesday to examine the impact the health care law might have on the budget in upcoming years. The National Conference of State Legislatures will brief lawmakers in the morning about the health care law and Medicaid, as will the director of the state's Medicaid Division. Lawmakers will also study the new costs and long-term state savings that are possible under the health care law.
Nebraska U.S. Senator Mike Johanns says he really isn't taking seriously a letter he received from the incoming chairman of the Nebraska Democratic Party. Vince Powers suggested that the Republican Johanns become officially non-partisan and caucus with majority Democrats in the new Congress. Johanns says he had a good chuckle when he received the letter. Republicans swept into total control of the Nebraska Congressional delegation in this year's elections, but the Democratic Party continues to be the majority party in the U.S. Senate.
My husband would make a great congressman. He’s always introducing new bills in the house.
