Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue yesterday overturned the suspensions of four current and former New Orleans Saints players. Tagliabue found that three of the players engaged in conduct detrimental to the league, and says they participated in a performance pool that rewarded hard tackles and other plays that could merit fines. But he stressed that the team's coaches were very much involved and, along with others in the Saints' organization, had "contaminated" the case. Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma initially had been suspended the whole season, while Saints defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove received shorter suspensions.

Bond was denied Tuesday in Antelope County for a 33-year-old Ewing man accused in two murders. Matthew Hinrichsen appeared before Judge Donna Taylor yesterday afternoon, accompanied by his lawyer, Martin Klein. It was Hinrichsen's first appearance in court on two charges of first degree murder, two charges of use of a weapon to commit a felony and one count of arson. He is accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend, 25-year-old Victoria Lee, and her husband, 30-year-old Gabino "Alex" Vargas. Hinrichsen is also charged with setting fire to the mobile home where the couple lived. At Tuesday's hearing, Antelope County Attorney asked that Hinrichsen be held without bond, while Klein argued that a reasonable bail should be established. Judge Taylor ordered the defendant held without bond. Hinrichsen's next court appearance is set for December 18th at 1:15 p.m.
Tuesday night's meeting was the last for three members of the Norfolk Public Schools Board of Education. Clark Froehlich, Alfredo Ramirez and Joel Carlson were defeated in the general election, and will be replaced by Arnie Robinson, Sandy Wolff and Bob Waite. Superintendent Marlene Uhing presented plaques to the outgoing board members last night. She says they were on the board for all of the right reasons. Uhing says the number one goal of the retiring school board members has always been what's good for students. Robinson, Wolff and Waite will be sworn in at the board's first meeting in 2013 on January 14th.
Some areas of the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District experienced declining water levels during irrigation season, and a subcommittee will meet tomorrow night to discuss that problem. NRD Water Resources Manager Rick Wozniak says water conservation is the best way to deal with these in-season declines, but the summer of 2012 presented a special challenge. Wozniak says two subcommittees are meeting tomorrow night. The first is the Projects Committee, and that meeting begins at 7. He says the meeting of the Program Subcommittee, which will deal with the water management issue, will follow the Project Committee meeting, and he anticipates it will start about 7:30. Subcommittees take no binding action. They only make recommendations to the full NRD board, which will meet next Thursday.
The University of Nebraska Extension is offering a four-part short course to help beef producers deal with the drought. Cuming County Extension Educator Larry Howard says the first session tomorrow night will deal with winter feeding considerations for the beef cow herd. Howard says next week's program will look at managing calving, and programs in January will look at options for beef producers if the drought ends - and if it doesn't end. There is no charge for the programs, which will be carried on television on NET 2 or on the Internet at beef.unl.edu. All four programs begin at 7 p.m.
