NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has upheld the four-game suspension handed to Tom Brady for his role in using underinflated footballs during New England's rout of Indianapolis in the AFC championship game six months ago.  Goodell said the Pats quarterback told an assistant to destroy Brady's cell phone on or just before March 6, the day he met with independent investigator Ted Wells.  Brady's agent called the appeal hearing a sham and said Goodell "failed to ensure a fair process." 

The Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to trade All-Star closer Jonathan Papelbon to the Washington Nationals.  Major League Baseball.com reported the Phillies will receive Double-A right-hander Nick Pivetta for Papelbon.  The 34-year-old right-hander is Philadelphia's career saves leader with 123 and is 17 for 17 in save chances this season.  Papelbon also is Boston's saves leader with 219.  Drew Storen is 29 for 31 in save opportunities for the National League East-leading Nationals.  He's likely moving to a setup role because Papelbon made it clear he wouldn't accept a trade unless he was going to remain the closer.  The Phillies are a major league-worst 37-63.  They signed Papelbon to a $50 million, four-year deal in November 2011. 

Round Two was suspended due to darkness after a three-hour severe weather delay started the day at the 107th Nebraska Amateur at Indian Creek Golf Course.  Lincoln's David Easley finished just before the suspension and leads at 139 (-5) after a 69 (-3).  Jose Vega, a recent graduate of Bellevue University, had the round of the day, a 4-under 68 and is a stroke back at 140 (-4).  Alex Schaake of Omaha, the 2015 Nebraska Junior Amateur Champion, is the only other player under par at 142 (-2).  All groups in the afternoon wave made it through at least 13 holes.  Play resumes at 8:00 AM with Round Three to begin at 11:00.  Among the 153 golfers include:  Laurel’s Mitchell Klooz; Wayne’s Joey Baldwin; Norfolk’s Lance Lawson, Luke Kluver, Alex Strom, & Payton Baker; Tekemah’s Preston Walford; Schuyler’s Clint Kracl; Homer’s Mitchell Holgate & Tyler Kirkholm; and Plainview’s Colin Wright (82).

News Briefs:

An Ainsworth hospital administrator testified during a hearing in Washington that federal rules harm both the bottom line for rural hospitals and the care they’re able to provide patients. Shannon Sorensen is CEO of Brown County Hospital and told the House Ways and Means Committee a federal rule limiting Medicare and Medicaid patients to a 96-hour hospital stay interferes with patient care. Sorensen backs legislation by 3rd-District Congressman Adrian Smith that would ease federal regulations on rural hospitals. 

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against Nebraska college officials over the disappearance of a 19-year-old student.  Tyler Thomas disappeared in 2010. A death certificate was issued in 2013, though her body hasn't been found. Her family filed a lawsuit for wrongful death against the Nebraska State Colleges board of trustees and a man who was a fellow student.  The man wasn't charged in her case but has been imprisoned for an unrelated sexual assault conviction. 

Madison County Commissioners reviewed budget requests Tuesday for several subdivisions that must have their levy requests OK’d by the Board. County Clerk Nancy Scheer presented information that rural fire protection districts had lowered their requested levy from 4 cents per hundred dollars of valuation to 3-and-a-half cents. The Norfolk Sanitary District has requested a 5-percent increase in its budget, and the Madison County Agricultural Society has requested a 2.5-percent increase.
