News Briefs:

The Nebraska State Patrol now offers online access for criminal background checks. Gov. Dave Heineman announced the upgrade on Monday. Nebraska State Patrol Superintendent David Sankey says automating the service will let Nebraskans obtain records faster. Prior criminal background checks could take three to 10 days. Previously Nebraskans had only been able to request such records by mail, fax or in person. Nebraskans requesting name-only criminal background checks can access the records online at www.ne.gov/go/crime-report . Each request costs $18 and must be paid with a credit card. The Nebraska State Patrol processed more than 33,000 name-only criminal history background checks requests in 2012.

A social media expert is the featured speaker at today's Norfolk Area Chamber of Commerce Small Business Council luncheon. Dawn Nelson of VIP Digital Marketing will speak at Prenger's beginning at noon today.

A car crashed into a Norfolk home after it was involved in a two-vehicle collision on an icy Norfolk intersection. The accident occurred Friday morning at the intersection of 5th Street and Elm Avenue. Samantha Suhr of Norfolk was traveling north on 5th and was approaching Elm when she attempted to brake for a stop sign, but due to the icy conditions, slid through the stop sign. He car collided with a vehicle being driven by Lydee Krueger of Pierce who was traveling west on Elm Avenue. According to Norfolk Police, the impact sent the Krueger car to the northwest corner of the intersection, jumping the curb and traveling across the lawn before striking a gas meter and a house at 500 Elm Avenue. The impact caused a break in the gas line. The Norfolk Fire Division and Black Hills Energy were called to the scene. The home and gas line both sustained damage as did both vehicles. Both drivers were wearing seatbelts and there were no injuries. Suhr was ticketed for a stop sign violation as well as for not having a valid registration and expired drivers license.
