Kobe Bryant has announced he will retire at the end of the season, writing in The Players' Tribune yesterday that his heart and mind can handle another season, but his body knows it's time to say goodbye.  The Los Angeles Lakers guard ranks third on the NBA's career scoring list with more than 32,000 points, but he is averaging just 15.7 points on a career-worst 32% shooting in twelve games.  He's won two Olympic gold medals, earned five NBA titles and been named an All-Star 17 times. 

The Denver Broncos have ended the New England Patriots' perfect run by defeating the Pats 30-24 on C.J. Anderson's 48-yard touchdown with 2:28 gone in overtime.  New England entered the game 10-0 before Anderson torched them for 115 yards on 15 carries, including a 15-yard TD in the fourth quarter.  Anderson's first touchdown ignited a 17-point run that put the Broncos ahead 24-21, but the Patriots forced overtime on Stephen Gostkowski's 47-yard field goal as regulation expired. 

Nebraska and Creighton both earned national seeds on the road to Omaha in the NCAA volleyball tournament.  The Omaha World Herald reports that the 26-4 Huskers earned a top four seed, while the Bluejays earned the 16 seed.  Omaha hosts the final four on Dec. 17 and 19 at the CenturyLink Center.  Nebraska, the fourth overall seed, will host Harvard in the first round of the NCAA tournament at 7:00 on Friday.  Wichita State will face Kansas State in the other matchup in Lincoln.  Creighton, the 16th national seed, will face Coastal Carolina in the first round of the tournament in Chapel Hill at 3:30 on Friday.  The winner of that match will face the winner of host North Carolina vs. UNC-Wilmington.  The 25-8 Bluejays are making their fifth NCAA tournament appearance in six years.

News Briefs:

Eastern Nebraska could see freezing rain, sleet and snow Monday.  The National Weather Service has issued a winter-weather advisory for most of eastern Nebraska. Accumulations will likely be greatest in Northeast Nebraska.  Forecasters say precipitation is likely to be a mix of ice and snow.  The advisory is in effect until 6 p.m.

A Lincoln police officer has been shot and wounded and another officer physically assaulted during a confrontation that began as a traffic stop.  Lincoln Police Chief Jim Peschong says the injuries to the officers are not life threatening.  One person was killed in the incident and two others were taken into custody.  

Fixing the damage caused by the Tecumseh prison riot cost far more than initially predicted and will take until mid-2016 to complete. The Department of Correctional Services says it needs nearly $1.3 million from lawmakers for replacement equipment, supplies, walls, doors and window grilles that were destroyed during the May 10 riot.  The state previously paid a $200,000 deductible to its insurer, which has already covered slightly more than $1 million in expenses.  The estimate far exceeds earlier tallies of the damage total that wasn't covered by insurance. Corrections director Scott Frakes told a legislative committee in May that his best cost estimate was between $350,000 and $500,000.

Lawmakers are looking for new ways to draw national and international tourists to Nebraska. The Legislature's Appropriations Committee will hold a hearing Tuesday at the Capitol to discuss funding options for state tourism sites. The hearing will explore what other states have done to attract more tourists and promote economic development. The hearing is part of a legislative study introduced by Sen. Adam Morfeld of Lincoln.

Meetings will be held from Norfolk to Chadron this month to provide information and get input on the master plan for the Cowboy Trail.  Economic development and changes in the way vegetation along the trail is managed are among the topics to be discussed.  Meetings on the eastern leg of the Cowboy Trail are planned December 8th in the Ainsworth Elks Club, December 9th in the Holt County Economic Development Office in O’Neill, and December 10th in the Lifelong Learning Center in Norfolk. All begin at 7 p.m. 

Construction will continue this week on the sewer south of the Elkhorn River along the Highway 81 corridor. Beginning Tuesday, North Airport Road west of Highway 81 will be closed to thru traffic. According to City Engineer Mark Dolechek, the closure is expected to last from two to three weeks. Dolechek asks that you please follow posted detours and allow for extra travel time when driving in that area.

The Norfolk Ministerial Association is kicking off its annual holiday fund drive, sponsored by the Norfolk Daily News, with a goal of raising $75,000 to help the less fortunate during the holiday season and year-round. All the details about how to contribute and participate can be found in Monday’s edition of the Daily News and online at
